Purchase Invoice - Account Drop down list


#1

Under the Purchase Invoice page, “Account” drop down list, I see only the “Employee Clearing Account” under the Liabilities section.

May I know if there should be a “Account Payable” under the "Liabilities: section so that I can chose “Account Payable” when I am paying to vendor?

Its not an expanse as it a payment to buy goods.

The act of creating a purchase invoice creates the account payable, which is a liability account. In double-entry accounting terms, this is a credit. A credit must be offset by a debit to a different account, such as an expense account or an inventory account. That’s why you cannot allocate a purchase invoice to Accounts payable. Manager will do it automatically. Your task is to identify the balancing account for the debit.
