How to Prevent COMMON GL Posting Errors

To prevent double postings and other inaccuracies, avoid using 'special accounts' (when making Journal Entries) that have a sub-ledger posting process such as Bank Accounts, AR Invoices, AP Bills, etc.  For instance, you would want to AVOID debiting or crediting the following accounts using a Journal Entry:

  • Undeposited Funds Account
  • Bank Account(s)
  • Inventory Account(s)
  • A/R Account
  • A/P Account
  • Sales Account(s)
These accounts will typically be correctly debited and credited when Invoices, Invoice Payments, Bills, Bill Payments, and Banking transactions (Checks, Deposits, Adjustments) are posted.
