    The short answer is you do not.

    In the real world at the start of a new year any loans or credit card debts you have are not wiped out, any bank credit balances are not taken off you so in the software you use to track these accounts you would not revert to a zero balance you just keep posting transactions.

    To examine or display a particular time period in the register you use the filters, and you use reports specifying a time frame when the report is generated.
