Topic: No cash account in Direct invoice


I am trying to create a direct invoice where a customer buys a product and pays in cash on the spot, as in a POS sales fashion.
When I specify a cash payment term the field of cash account is not activated and no input is allowed. The transaction results in crediting the AR and debiting an empty account.
What am I doing wrong?

Re: No cash account in Direct invoice


The cash account is from the bank account you have set in Banking and General Ledger -> Bank Accounts
The GL accounts for the bank account are assigned here.
I think you can only have one cash bank account.  From what I can see thats one GL account per bank account, you cannot use the same GL account for more than one bank account
A bank account in FA does not have to be tangible - hence the petty cash box and the cash till are classed as bank accounts in FA
