Use Journal entry transactions to record journal entries for your client. You can enter journal entry transactions in the General journal or in any of journals that were set up in the Setup > Journals screen. Note that you must distribute the journal entry so that the sum of the distribution amounts equals zero.

Choose Actions > Enter Transactions, select Journal entry from the Type drop-down list.

Tabbed pages in this screen

Distribute the journal entry to one or more accounts. The sum of the distribution amounts must equal zero.

Note that if you select a GL account that is associated with a bank account, the application will automatically create a corresponding proxy transaction.
