Nominal roles allow you to specify which accounts will be used for predefined actions carried out by the system. For example, when the system rounds the trail balance it may not balance due to rounding differences. The system corrects this by adjusting nominal accounts in the profit and loss and balance sheet areas to ensure that the rounded profit figure is correct and the balance sheet balances. The accounts that will be adjusted are shown by the associated role in the Nominal Role window.
