For many the details of double entry bookkeeping are a mystery, and many would like to keep it that way.
Bookkeeping Pro takes care of most of the drudgery of dealing with double entry posting to ledgers and remembering which account is a debit and which is a credit. We have gone to lengths to hide this as much as possible with screens like the 'Bank Transfer' screen that give you simple labels like 'From Bank Account' and 'To Bank Account' instead of 'Debit Account' and 'Credit Account'.
However some like to know what is going on behind the scenes so in Bookkeeping Pro we give direct access to the general ledger from various places throughout the program so that you can see exactly what is going on if you want to know.
We have designed the program in such a way that you can achieve what people often call 'splits' without the risk of creating an unbalanced transaction. An unbalanced transaction is where the total amount of all debits does not equal the total amount of all credits.
If you prefer to use the traditional approach for split journal entries then you can do so by changing a single Application setting.
