Account Fields

This page contains descriptions of the fields on all types of Accounts.

Account name

The unique name of the Account.

Nominal Code

This is an optional unique number associated with the Account. The numbers are primarily used by accountants to categorize the different types of account. The typical number ranges are:

1000 – 1999: Asset accounts
2000 – 2999: Liability accounts
3000 – 3999: Equity accounts
4000 – 4999: Income accounts
5000 – 5999: Cost Of Goods Sold
6000 – 6999: Expense accounts
7000 – 7999: Other revenue (i.e. interest income)
8000 – 8999: Other expense (i.e. income taxes)

Account Ordering:

The order in which the Accounts are displayed depends on the order of the associated Nominal Codes (if they exist). For example, if you have 2 Expense accounts with Nominal codes 6005 and 6010, swap the order they are displayed by swapping the Nominal Code values. Useful for when you need a precise ordering of the accounts.

Parent Account

A Dropdown field displaying all other Accounts. Select one to make it a Parent Account. It must be of the same Account type. This allows grouping of related Accounts within the Chart of Accounts. For example within the parent account of Utilities, there are Expense Accounts Gas, Electricity & Water. In accounting reports, you can see the totals for Utilities, as well as for the constituent sub-accounts (as shown below).
