7.  Suspense Account - In modern accounting, many large corporations use Suspense Ledger to track the money paid or recovered, the nature of which is not yet known.

Loans and Advances (Asset) group. - The Suspense Account is a Balance Sheet item. Any expense account even if it has ‘suspense’ in its name, it should be opened under Revenue group like Indirect Expenses and not under Suspense Account group.
