Accounting Misc.

Debit G/L acct

(Optional) Use this field to enter a default G/L account number to be used for debits when creating invoices. This account number will automatically be entered into the corresponding field on every new invoice record you create for this vendor (it can still be changed when the invoice is created, if necessary).

  • HINT: If your credit union has multiple corporations, use Expense G/L (company) (F2) to set up multiple default debit G/L accounts according to Corporate ID.

Credit G/L acct

(Optional) If you would like to ensure that a specific G/L account is used every time credits (discounts, credit for returned merchandise, etc.) are received from this vendor, use this field to enter the default G/L account where credits should be posted.

  • NOTE: Remember that each invoice item you create can have an offsetting debit (expense) or credit, not both. Therefore, if a default G/L is entered for both debits and credits, it will be necessary to delete the unused account number every time you create an invoice. Since the Debit G/L account will generally be used far more often, it is recommended that the Credit G/L default be left blank in most cases.
