can not for the life of remember what set-off means?

here is the context :

"A set-off entry for £175 has been omitted from purchases ledger control account"

if anyone could explain would appreciate it :thumbup:

    Think it would mean the same as 'contra'

    If you both sold to and brought from the same company you could 'set off' or 'contra' the balances between owed from and owed to.
