This comes in handy when users need to record transactions that need to be transferred to other accounts. It is important for users to clear the clearing account before closing their books. Also, users can record both income and expenses into clearing accounts. Some accountants make use of these accounts for recording accounts receivable and account payables. Further, users can also record expenses incurred for an ongoing project into clearing accounts.
