Adding a journal entry

Accounting by Guesty is a premium feature available to Pro users only. Please contact us to discuss activating it.

A journal entry is a way of recording a transaction that does not fall under one of Guesty's five predefined transactions

When you add a journal entry you are responsible for defining which account to debit/credit, and within that to select the relevant owner, vendor, or guest, and enter the amount to credit/debit. A journal entry can be added in three places in Guesty.
