The account correspondence mechanism allows you to create correspondence relations between transactions. When the account correspondence mechanism is turned on, each new accounting transaction created will consist of a set of two-way corresponding transactions. When posting the accounting transactions, the corresponding relation is defined automatically. If non-corresponded transactions existed before the account correspondence mechanism was turned on, they would not be linked automatically.
