Payment Entry: Supplier is required against payable account

When adding account in the Deductions or Loss section in Payment Entry, this error shows up

Any idea why this error is showing up?

The purpose of adding the deduction is because the supplier have a loan from the company and wants to deduct the payment from that loan in the specific account added in Deductions or Loss.


To archive that deduction, You can pass the journal entry as follows:

Debit Supplier Payable Account and Credit Loan Recovery account.

After that you can do the Payment Reconciliation and select the Invoice and Journal entry to match the recovery entry.

This is helpful but this action is not really advisable in JE. But still, thank you.
