Transfer Entries (Bank/Cash)

In Axanta, Transfer Entry refers to transactions involving cash and bank account. In other words, any entry which affects both cash and bank accounts is called a Transfer Entry.

To make the definition further simpler, any transactions involving a transfer of cash between one cash account to another or one cash account to another bank account or one bank account to another is called as a contra entry.

The following is the list of possibilities for Transfer Entries:

  • Cash account to Bank account

  • Bank account to Cash account

  • Bank account to Bank account

  • Cash account to Cash account
