X in Pay Bills

Why do some subcontractors have an X in the Pay Bills window?

If a subcontractor has expired insurance, Goldenseal accounting software won't let you pay them, and they will have an X in the first column of the Pay Bills window.

To pay them, follow these steps:

  1. Choose Subcontractors from the Accounts menu.
  2. Locate the subcontractor account that has the X.
  3. Enter more recent dates for insurance expiration, or change the If Expired option to Deduct or Pay Anyhow.
  4. Click the Enter key to save changes.
  5. You'll now be able to pay the subcontractor.
