AR & AP Contra

This module is useful when you have a customer who is also a supplier. If this happen, you may want to offset the outstanding customer and supplier invoices. The process is known as making a contra entry.

In NCL Accounting, you can offset the two invoices by using the AR & AP Contra. Therefore, when you record the invoices as being paid, it will not appear in your bank statement.

In the Listing page, you may filter the display result based on the following criteria: Customer, and Doc Date.
