can any one clear me

While posting customer invoice (FB70) why system asks for G/L account? As per accounting rules customer is debited and Customer reconciliation a/c is credited that ends double entry book keeping rule. Why one more G/L account on top of Recon a/c, which is posted automatically

thank you

Entry gets posted to Customer a/c through reconciliation account. You have to give a GL a/c for revenue.

Your entry would be

Customer (Reconciliation a/c) Dr

To Revenue Cr

  • Reconciliation is a fictious entry so you cannot consider as an entry to be entered by the user. This rule is derived from the fact that 'we cannot enter/post directly to RECON account'.

That is why system needs a GL account to make the account balance as zero. Manual entry could be:

Customer a/c Dr

To Domestic Sales a/c

(Sales invoiced posted)

Recon entry is automatically made once you post this entry since you have configured your RECON in the IMG.
