Bank cash 300.000.000
Bank – BOE (incoming payment) cash 300.000.000

Most frequent question asked to me

Why does Bank – Bill of exchange Liability(collection) and Bill of Exchange (Collection) have balance?

As you can see from the Above table GL Type is Different for the two Gl account, while Configuring we have to Make Two separate GL for Collection Clearing GL account. The value doesn’t affect the Balance sheet as both are asset Gl Account and these Gl account will cancel each other.

This is the process of Bill of exchange Receivables for Korea.

Dheeraj
