To make an offsetting entry for a guarantee posting, you create the clearing account and define the account number in the system for the automatic posting. You must specify the clearing accounts separately for each chart of accounts. You can differentiate the accounts per debit and credit postings. Since the automatic offsetting entry procedure can be used for any special G/L transactions, you can also differentiate the accounts per account type via the special G/L indicator.


You post guarantees made and received in your system. Additional transactions can also be configured for which an automatic offsetting entry posting is necessary. This enables you to post interest receivables to the same account for example. You would then differentiate your clearing accounts according to the account type and special G/L indicator.
