I can’t get a journal entry done to my ‘cash on hand’ account
You have two issues:
- One cannot record any transaction involving the movement of actual money with a journal entry. Read https://www.manager.io/guides/7820 and https://www.manager.io/guides/7821.
- Cash on hand is a control account, made up of cash accounts. You cannot record entries directly to the control account, but must set up and select a cash account. See https://www.manager.io/guides/9219.
