Define general or bank-specific reconciliation rules

If you want the automatic bank account reconciliation in Continia Payment Management to create posting suggestions in the cash receipt journal, when a bank ledger entry cannot find a match on an open general ledger entry, for example; coverages, emptying, interest and fee, you must define rules for this.

If the function finds a rule that it can match with the posting, a general ledger entry is automatically created in the general ledger journal, ready for posting and subsequent reconciliation. Read more about how the reconciliation works, under the section How to reconcile your bank account.

General or bank-specific reconciliation rules

You should be aware that you can define reconciliation rules in 2 ways;

  1. If you use the function directly from the Bank Account Card, the rules will only apply to that specific bank account. Use the Reconciliation rules function, or
  2. If you use the general setup, the rules will apply to all bank accounts. This is the general setup described in this section. To get to the window, select the icon Søg efter side eller rapport or press Ctrl-F3, enter General Reconciliation Rules, and then select the related link.
