Set up your loan accounts.

There are two options available to set account names and numbers.

1.) Use the default account names and numbers option. Use this option to allow loan assistant to set up with predefined software account names.

If you selected customize account names and numbers the following window will be used. Use the edit buttons on the accounts grid to change the names, numbers, and account types or to map to the other accounts in your book. Check off the use existing account checkbox to map loan assistant accounts to preexisting accounts in your QuickBooks file. Uncheck the “use existing account” checkbox to create accounts to pre new accounts in your QuickBooks file.

This will allow you to create sub accounts for every account type used by loan assistant including interest income, installment differed gain, penalty income, escrow related accounts, unutilized fee income, service fee income, installment gain, CD expense, CD interest, and CD liability.
