In the case of a zero value invoice, there's no due item created. Because of this, system offset against the miscellaneous ledger.


We have specific logic for this in which if there's no due item, we set the miscellaneous ledger as the offset ledger, and we post into whatever account is maintained for foreign currency rounding differences. The balance in this account never actually changes, but we need to have something here when there's no due lines. So this is how it is handled in the system for zero value invoices.
