If an expense is set as pre-paid in Airbase, you will be asked to enter the start date and end date of the contract. Airbase then splits the amount paid for the expense equally among all the months that fall within the contract period.
Once set, the amount cannot be edited and hence you cannot split the amount unequally when they sync with the GL.
