clearing account in which BS category



i know the income summary account in the example not needed also no issue.

my question now is how do i know this kind of account should be BS receivable or payable account? i mean when i create in COA.

i know that when it is debit balance then it is receivable whereas otherwise payable. like in this case is i think should be payable.

just like some of the clearing account. when debit balance it is BS receivable.

so my question is to know this kind of clearing account i should create under asset or liabilities category.
