The stock journal is recording entries with DEBIT AND CREDIT equal to zero.

What situation or parameters can lead to this issue?

How is it possible that the accounting module allows such entries? At least an alert could be issued each time such an entry is being recorded!

I've seen this before when the cost price of the product being moved is $0.  Check the cost price on the Procurements tab of the product where the move is $0.

Thanks Ray for the direction; that's what I thought; I hope the accounting entries allow to trace back to the products

Just checked the auditability: the accounting entries do not allow to trace back to the POS receipt which appears to be the only object that contains the name of the product .
