Determining the right IDoc type for billing

I have a small issue here to determine which IDoc type (message type) to use in this particular scenario:

An external system is receiving invoices (billing) which it wants to post in R/3 as Accounts Receivable in FI/CO (transaction FB01 for posting in R/3). This would post some to some GL accounts also. We could find one SAP message type ACLREC (IDoc type ACLREC01) for this -- is it correct? Or is there some other message type that we should use?
It is difficult to say without knowing your detailed customizing. However ACLREC is one possible IDoc to use, an alternative would be ACC_BILLING01 which uses the BAPI bypass and does the booking via function IDOC_INPUT_ACC_BILLING.
