Edit a general ledger account

This article explains how we edit general ledger accounts in our accounts list/chart of accounts or general ledger. The accounts list affects everything that happens in Actionstep accounting, including how you record income and expenses and the layout of your financial reports.

All accounts must initially be set up as master accounts and can then be "installed" at a divisional level. Therefore, in order to start editing accounts you must select master accounts from the Display drop down box.
