Example: a transaction occurred in the amount (a) in the main office (o) for a service (s)

a is the amount

s is the item

o is the ?????

  • I think the word "location" works perfectly. – chasly from UK Jul 21 '15 at 21:18

The term you're probably looking for is "Point of Sale." This is a pretty good definition: http://www.investopedia.com/terms/p/point-of-sale.asp

I would call it the locale

: the place where something happens

(merriam webster)

But I have no reason to think that's the accountancy term for it. If it is clear in the context that it refers to a transaction then I think its meaning will be unambiguous.
