What is Contra

Is the where a supplier is also a customer and you both owe each other money. The treatment in the accounts is a contra entry which cross cancels between them. No money changes hands except the difference. E.g., a suppler is owed 1000 and they owe us 1000. No money needs to be paid to anyone. In the books they cancel each other out.
