Manual journals

Manual journals are used by accountants or bookkeepers to work directly with the general ledger. For example, to record accrued expenses or completed work not invoiced. Learn how to post manual journals, create repeating journals, and import multiple journals in Xero.

Only users who have the Advisor, Standard + All Reports, or Read Only user role can access manual journals.
Talk to your accountant or bookkeeper if you're unsure about posting journals.
