An account to which postings are recorded temporarily.

Clearing accounts are auxiliary accounts that exist for technical reasons and which are cleared repeatedly.

Postings may need to be made to a clearing account because of:

A time gap between accounting transactions (GR/IR clearing account)

Organizational task distribution (bank clearing account)

Accounting transactions requiring clarification

Please let me know if you need more information.

Assign points if useful.

Clearing accounts is nothing but - settling the outstandings / differences to balance the accounts.

Different Clearing accounts available in SAP : Company Code Clearing accounts (Cross Company code clearing accounts), G/L account clearing (Differences arising on G/L acct clearing - to clear the open line items which are not 100% cleared), GR/IR Clearings (Invoiced but not yet delivered / Delivered but not yet invoiced)
