Assign general ledger accounts

You can (automatically) assign general ledger accounts in Billit and send the breakdown to your accountancy software.

This means you don't have to assign all invoices or invoice lines to the correct ledger account afterwards and you will save a lot of time.

Please note: to be able to assign general ledger accounts in Billit it's important that your accounting software supports the option to read general ledger accounts.

Consult this table with options per accounting software for more info.

  • General ledger accounts sent to accounting software

    General ledger accounts are sent to the accounting software based on the following priority:

    1. Specific general ledger accounts entered in order lines
      (overwrite all default accounts)
    2. Specific general ledger accounts on invoice (at the top)
      (applied if no ledger accounts appear on order line/product)

    General ledger accounts on order line have priority over the general ledger account on invoice (at the top). You can automatically load these with general ledger accounts in products.

    The general ledger accounts on invoice (at the top) are automatically filled in based on the general ledger accounts in customers/suppliers.

    If there are no general ledger accounts in the order lines, invoice (at the top) or customer/supplier Billit will take the default accounts (per VAT specification- in the settings from some integrations:

    • Default accounts sales (per VAT specification)
      (this can be seperate for credit notes)
    • Default accounts for purchases (per VAT specification)
      (this can be seperate for credit notes)

    These default accounts are not used if a different general ledger account is set via the order lines, products, invoices, customers or suppliers!
