Interest on overdue debtors
You may generate transactions for those Debtor (customer / client) accounts, which are overdue and have a percentage monthly interest entered in the Edit → Debtors (Accounting information tab) menu.

Once the batch has been posted, the Debtor (customer / client) accounts will be increased (debited) and the selected contra account (e.g. interest received - income account) will also be increased (credited).
