General ledger accounts affected during sales

What general ledger accounts will be affected during sales transactions?

When doing sales transactions 2 ledger accounts will be affected, but you first need to determine whether the two accounts that will be affected are per rep code or per stock code - this is a global parameter you can set by doing the following:

  1. Navigate to System / Company Parameters.
  2. Click on the Global Settings tab.
  3. Enter R or S in the Use Accounts text box.
  4. Click the Accept button.
  5. Check that the following message box appears: The company parameters have been updated successfully.

Once you have set this parameter you need to set up which accounts will be used per stock code or rep code, depending on what you have chosen to use. Read this article to see how to change the ledger accounts.

It is not recommended to switch between using the accounts per rep code or stock code during the month as this will affect your income statement negatively. Preferably do it at month-end.
