According to the General Accounting Plan (PGC), accounts are classified by groups, subgroups, accounts and subaccounts (levels). In accounting, each of those levels is given a number of digits. Thus, for example, the groups have one digit and the subgroups two.

In Holded, the first (official) digits of a ledger account are given automatically based on the account type, while the remaining digits (auxiliary) can be customized.

When setting up your accounts, you can choose between 8, 9, 10, 11 or 12 digits, as long as no journal entries have previously been recorded.

How to set the number of digits

To set the number of digits, perform the following steps:

  1. Click on Account entries and digits in the Accounting section.

  2. Select the number of digits that your ledger accounts will have.

  3. Click on Save and Confirm the action.

After making this configuration, the number of digits will remain unchanged until all available numbers with that number of digits are exhausted. At that point, Holded will automatically add a digit so you can continue.

If at any time you want to change the number of digits in your ledger accounts, repeat this process indicating the number you prefer.
