    Debit balance in GR/IR indicates that MIGO done and MIRO not done. You can use T.Code MR11 to clear the entries.

    I have a doubt that the difference will come in the following cases also.

    When there is two MIGO AND one miro is pending .

    i think we all got it wrong here.

    A debit in GRIR is MIRO because the credit goes to Account payable (vendor acct) awaiting payment while credit is MIGO because the cost object i.e. cost centre, WBS, service order, internal order is debited. Ordinarily, GRIR should alway be credit balance that is why is liabilty acct.

    In your case the GR is not yet done. therefore i will advise you to create manual journal to debit your cost object such as cost centre, wbs, order as case may be with tcode fsb1 which reverses automatically in the following accounting year and credit GRIR since it is your year end.

    There are chances of debit balance in GR/IR Clg a/c balance if a manual entry has been made in the same in the same account or no price difference account is attached to the same.

    Kindly check whether the same account is configured with the manual entry. If it is there then kindly make the same as non-manual entry to avoid further hassles. Then scrutinise the account for the debit balance in the same.

    In some cases where the PO is not GR based like service POs. In item details, Material the GR will not be ticked. If it is not, you cannot do MIRO without MIGO.

    There is a debit balance in the cash clearing account due to fiscal year.
    Checks have cleared after a certain date and therefore bank Main account has been credited now and the clearing entry from bank statement credits main account and debits clearing account.
    What is this debit entry called for reconciling purposes?
