Define currency-specific balance accounts

With Continia Payment Management you can define which balance account should be used for a particular currency. The bank account defined for a particular currency will then automatically be selected when payments are made in the given currency in the payment journal.


You must have created your bank accounts prior to the balance accounts setup. Read more about how to create bank accounts in the article Creating bank accounts.

A currency-specific balance account can also be set up directly on the vendor. Apply the action Balance Accounts to vendor's payment details, to override the general setup.

This feature can be useful if you, for example, has several Euro vendors; but want some vendors to be paid from a DE account while others have to be paid from a NL account.
