Hi frundcc, I’m sorry you’re having trouble comparing the AP balance on these 2 reports. AP is an accrual account and does not normally show on cash reports, when a balance shows up when reports are set to cash it may be caused by a vendor credit or a bill payment where bill was not created for it. You may set the trial balance and the balance sheet to ‘all’ for the date, if the balance matches then you may have to look for certain transactions like a bill credit created in 2013 but AP accumulated or a bill was created in 2014. Here’s a link which may be an effective resource in resolving AP issues on cash basis: http://support.quickbooks.intuit.com/support/Articles/INF12397
Hope this helps.
