A new line with a status of Honored and a sequence number of 1 or higher is created for the remitted bill of exchange and is shown in the Bill of exchange journal inquiry form. In the Bills of exchange statistics inquiry form, the number in the Honored bills row is increased, and the number in the Remitted bills row is decreased.

When you settle a bill of exchange that is remitted for collection, the ledger account for the bank that is used is debited, and the remit for collection account is credited.
