Journal Entries / Transfers

The journal entries page lets you record when you transfer money from one account to another, like when you put your cash in the bank*.

There are a few special destinations built into your accounts, depending on whether you’re a sole trader or limited company. You will be able to transfer money into and out of your business, so the Journal Entries dialog box may include drawings, introduced capital or directors’ loans.

*In CalCal, cash is treated as a special type of account. You can even have several cash accounts, like cash in the till, cash in the safe, etc.
