How do I resolve Error A1613 BSA Type for BSA is not Valid as Defined by the BSA Restriction on the Posting Code?

Error A1613 means that balance sheet account (BSA) used for the posting code doesn’t match to the posting code account type.

For example, the account type of posting code A016 is asset.

If you use BSA 2020 (Account Type: Liability) along with posting code A016 (Account Type: Asset) on the accounting line, error A1613 “BSA Type for BSA is not Valid as Defined by the BSA Restriction on the Posting Code” will be triggered.

To resolve the error A1613, the posting code account type will need to be matched with BSA account type. In the example above, either the posting code needs to be changed to a liability account type posting code like A015 or the BSA needs to be changed to an asset account type BSA like 1342 to resolve the error.
