I am not really sure if you are asking a question and if so what question.
In your scenario, you have paid yoursefl $2500 from your trust account. That is the apply funds to AR. It is a payment on the invoice. It is income as you paid yourself on that date. The bank deposit just moves the money from undeposited account to the proper bank account.
If you do not want to pay that invoice until January then you should not have applied the money in funds to the invoice.
What is the scenario that you want? If you want the income in Jan 2007, then undo the bill, uncheck apply funds to AR on the billing preferences of the matter and create the bill with a date of 12/26/2006. On January 10, 2007 withdraw from funds AND enter a payment in the amount of $2500. Deposit the money into your bank. If you are comfortable with Journal Entries, you could enter one and make any adjustments you want.
We are not here to give you accounting advice, just help you make the entries that you intend.

Duy,This is a long shot but have you experimented with the bill layout called Bill layout arial 8? It shows the fund related transactions at the bottom of the invoice. If you don't transfer the funds to A/R and then use this layout you still won't have the true balance due but at least they will see the amount in the trust and can do their own subtraction. You could even add a message indicating that the amount in trust can be applied towards the outstanding balance. Just a thought.
