Here they use accounting term where "asiento" = "post" from posting a value in a ledger.

No sabemos si se trata de una partida de varios valores que aparece en la sección de una cuenta, o en un artículo contable, o en un diario, o en un balance. "Post" en este caso de una sola cifra, se llama "asiento", un registro contable simple (a simple single accounting entry), término general. Sin embargo, la partida normalmente indica un lote (entry lot) en un diario reuniendo a varios valores asentados y consolidados en ella. Saludos.
