When Bills Receivable are remitted using Remittance Method = Standard, the accounting associated with the creation of a receipt has incorrect accounting entries (The Unapplied account is credited instead of the Remitted Bills Receivable account). 

The accounting that happens is:

DR Remitted Cash
   CR Unapplied Cash


The expected accounting is:

DR Remitted Cash 
   CR Remitted Bills Receivable


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Responsibility
: Receivables Manager
Navigation
: Bills Receivable > Remittances

Create a Standard Remittance batch and pick a Bills Receivable to remit

2. Responsibility: Receivables Manager
Navigation: Bills Receivable > Maturity and Risk Programs
Ensure you enter parameters such that the Remittance batch you created above will be processed This process will then create a receipt to apply to the BR.

3. Responsibility: Receivables Manager
Navigation: Receipts > Receipts
Query the receipt created in above step and run Create Accounting.
Note that the accounting entries are incorrect.
