CMUT012 - Offset account has an incorrect category


This message may have several causes.

  1. This error message may have multiple causes. Your source invoice contains a general ledger account that does not exist in e-Boekhouden. The integration falls back to the default contra account that was chosen in the integration.

  2. Your selected contra account is not a revenue account. The contra account must always be a revenue account. Perhaps you have selected a creditor account? Please select the contra account that is related to the received amount. This option is only available if you have created more than 1 debtor account.

Explanation: what is a contra account?
