Note! Remember that you cannot select an account that is not in our chart of accounts. If you’re looking for an account that’s not on the list, you will be unable to use this when entering bookkeeping records in Bokio.

You must also enter the title and date of the journal entry.

Fill in all the accounts and make sure that the credit and debit amounts balance, otherwise you will be unable to enter journal entry. To add additional bookkeeping accounts, click “New row”.

When you’re done, click “Record”. You will then get a preview of the journal entry. To create the journal entry, click “OK”.
