The minimum trust balance allows you to represent the minimum amount your clients/companies must have deposited in the law firm's trust account during the course of their case.
By utilizing the Minimum Trust Balance feature, you will be notified in the home tab when a contact or company's trust balance has fallen below the minimum amount.
Minimum trust balances ensure that there are adequate funds available for future rendering of services.
