Creditors Control Account charges in Bank Account


I think I have deleted the Creditors Control Account from the dashboard. Now when adding credits to that account the system charges them to the Bank Current Account. Is there any way I can solve this?

Many thanks,

You can’t delete the creditor control account as it’s locked. When you say “adding credits” where are you doing this? Can you provide more detail on your steps?

Hi Glenn,

For example, when receiving a bill from a sub-contractor:
Sub-contractors Dr 1000
Creditors Control Account Cr 1000

Then when the bill is paid, how do I journal it?
Creditors Control Account Dr 1000
Bank Account Cr 1000
If I do this and record a payment to that invoice, both are included in the Bank Account resulting in a double payment.

Hope I explained it a bit better…


You don’t need to journal the creditor control account. When you log a payment to an invoice Quick File handles all this for you. See for yourself… create an invoice then assign a payment, you will see the creditor control account being credited and debited again.

Thank you very much for your help and rapid responses!

Does any expense need to be journalized then?

It’s not required, see the example here:
