When you would like to have the debtor information in your accounting platform, you can enable the above option. The journal entry would be: Debtor (debit) and guest ledger (credit). For a contra account code in the sales journal we could also use a specific suspense account we call “suspense account receivables”. When you enable this option the contra account code in the sales journal will be the account code you provide. This suspense account is posted credit in the sales journal. In the general journal we add a line to this same account and post it debit. This suspense account should be zero every day. The great thing about this suspense account is that whenever you see a balance on that account, you know something has gone wrong. It’s a good control mechanism to check whether all debtor information has been sent through or not.
