When trying to export a batch to QuickBooks, an error occurs stating, "There was an error when saving a General Journal transaction. QuickBooks error message: Only one a/r or a/p account allowed per transaction."
Login to ServiceTitan.
In the navigation bar, click Reports.
Click Export Error Report.
Locate the batch number mentioned in the error message.
Check the Payment Type for the payments in this batch. If any of them are set to Retainage Receivable, change them to a payable or another General Ledger account based on your setup, but not Accounts Receivable.
If the Payment Type is set to Journal Entry, note that this type of payment is usually used for negative payments.
If you keep the Payment Type as a Journal Entry, the payment will export but will not apply to the original invoice as it will search for an adjustment to be applied, and after not finding it, it will be under the customer only.
Export the batch again and verify that the issue has been resolved.
