Configure booking accounts

To configure the chart of accounts, navigate to: Configuration > Accounting > Chart of Accounts > Chart of Accounts Overview

Click the "Add" button in the top left corner of the overview page, which opens an overlay. Now, fill in the data fields "Account number" and "Account group". Then select the "Account type" (equity, liability, asset, expense, or income) from the drop-down menu of the same name.

The data fields "Account name" and "Account description" are optional.

"OPOS account" slider: Set the OPOS slider to active to enable OPOS management for this account. This allows you to clear open positions for this account manually (learn more about OPOS management). The OPOS management function was previously a feature for debtor accounts that are created automatically and whose clearing takes place automatically. However, with this slider you can now activate clearing for other accounts as well and clear them manually.

Click "Save" and the account will be displayed in the overview. Click "Discard" to cancel the operation. Repeat this process to configure all accounts required for your operation.

Edit and delete booking accounts

All booking accounts are listed in the account overview. To edit an account, click the "Edit" button at the end of the respective entry. The overlay opens and you can make changes to the account details.

Click "Save" to save your changes and the updated account will be displayed in the overview. Click "Discard" to cancel the operation.


Account number

The account number cannot be edited. To make changes to this criteria, you have to delete the respective entry by clicking the "Delete" icon at the end of the respective entry and create a new one.
