Hi Rajeev

Under Administration > System Initialization > Company Details > Basic Initialization, there is an option called "Use Purchase Accounts Posting System". When you select this at implementation time, you then define 2 G/L accounts under Cost of Sales (or expenses if you prefer), and all purchases will be posted to Trading Stock, Purchases account and Purchases Offset account. The Purchases and Purchases Offset account will balance to zero by always debiting one and crediting the other.

Kind regards
