Documents posted from purchasing, sales, and service can be reversed, and the general ledger entries of the reversed documents are not included in the summary and sub-ledger accounting reports. Accounts receivable and accounts payable checks and promissory bills are defined, and their due dates are tracked, the accounting links of each check/voucher can be managed through portfolios, and long- and short-term accounting transactions can be managed. Furthermore, financing cards for loans, leases, and assets are defined, payment terms for each card are tracked, long and short-term integrations are made, and accounting processes are managed. It is also possible to manage multiple discount processes for each line in purchase and sales quotations, orders, and invoices.

At the end of the accounting period, balances in accounts such as 180, 280, 380, and 480 are automatically transferred to income/expense accounts.
