Bus/Financial - Accounting / Reconciliation
English term or phrase: contra (hier)
In einer Richtlinie zur Kontenabstimmung heißt es:
"***Contra*** matching items within ledger account balance to arrive at a listing of open reconciliation items that makes up the closing balance."
Der Sachverhalt ist klar: Man soll zunächst einander entsprechende Posten gegen einander verrechnen, um zur Liste der offenen Posten zu gelangen. Aber wieso hier "contra"? Meine online-Suche ergab keinen Hinweis auf die Verwendung von "contra" als Verb.
Kann ich hier mit "Einander entsprechende Posten sind gegen einander zu verrechnen" übersetzen?
