Can I add a bank account when creating a journal entry
Not really. To use the
Bank and Cash Accounts feature of Manager, you need to use Receipts, Payments and Transfers to record movements. This is how the feature is designed.
In case you don’t use Receipts, Payments or Transfers, then instead of using the
Bank and Cash Accounts tab, you can simply create regular accounts for cash and bank and for those you can use Journal Entries.
There is no need to process a journal in the bank account. Its either you paid or receive money. The only documents to process are Receipts and Payments.
All is clearly explained in the guides Make journal entries | Manager and also if you’d search the forum.
In fact, no transaction involving the actual receipt or payment of funds by a business can be recorded via a journal entry.
