Default Account Classification (System) codes

Alerts and notices

Refer to the tables below for Account Classification (System) codes, subcodes, and default account types.


  • Account classification codes must be assigned to an account in order for the account to be mapped to an account type.
  • AdvanceFlow has five account types: A = Asset, L = Liability, Q = Equity, R = Revenue, and E = Expense.
  • AdvanceFlow uses the R and E account types to calculate net income (loss) value that is displayed on the Trial Balance tab.
  • You cannot modify these codes, subcodes, or descriptions, but you can modify the account type mapping.
