A new line with a status of Honored and a sequence number of 1 or higher is created for the remitted promissory note and is shown in the Promissory note journal form.

When you settle a remitted promissory note, the remitted promissory notes summary account is debited and the bank summary account is credited. When you settle an invoice-remitted invoice, the invoice-remitted summary account is debited and the vendor summary account is credited.

(ESP) Conditional sales tax is posted when you settle a promissory note that is drawn for a customer invoice on which conditional sales tax is applied. You can view the conditional sales tax that is posted for the payment in the Voucher transactions form.
