 Further information about the tender type clearing account including an example

(info) The Tender Type Cash Clearing Account is used during till reconciliation and is different from the Branch Cash Clearing Account.

Upon checking the GL accounts, both transactions are recorded as Credit in the Branch Cash Clearing Account (Cash Clearing Br. 10), however its equivalent Debit record are also recorded to their specific Tender Type Clearing Account.
