What are Account Categories for?

Account category is information that Reviso requests when creating a new account. 

The account category serves you to organize your accounting information according to the nature of the account itself, be it a capital account, suppliers account or VAT.

Some Reviso reports are interlinked with this categorization allowing you to see the results of your company based on the category you set up for each of your accounts.

Additionally, the account categories are linked to your control panel, which you can see under the Home tab. Indicators that appear on the control panel use data from the accounts categorized into specific groups. 

For example, the indicator called “Bank and Cash” will add all the amounts of the accounts categorized as “Bank and cash balances“.
