Merchant Clearing

Often a clearing account is used in business to help with balancing the amount of money your merchant facility deposits into your bank account each night.

In this way one big amount appears in your Bank AC to reconcile against. Sometimes the journal requires an extra line for merchant fees.

The end result is that the clearing account should balance over time. When it does this has the benefit of highlighting a bank error or an error in your own payment processing systems.
