Expert:  taxadvisor.uk replied 2 years ago.
Graham, thank you for your propmpt reply and information provided.

You appear to have a difference of £708 between Box AC68 1,836 and Box AC80 £2,544 (at the present you are showing in Box AC74 £1.834 to make balance sheet agree).

Box AC74 should equal Box AC187.

I would like you to revisit top half of your balance sheet to review Boxes AC52, AC54 and AC58.

Are you happy that your profit and loss account is showing the correct profit for the year and that you have not missed an entry for provisions etc.

I await further news.

Many thanks

Hi,


 


AC52


 


AC54 def £2956


 


AC58 I can genuinly increase by £400 for an ipad, £120 for the secretarys phone and a further £188 for internet

Expert:  taxadvisor.uk replied 2 years ago.

Graham, thank you for your reply and additional information.

You should increase your administrative expenses by (400+120+188) = 708 and Box AC20 now becomes (1,461+708) = 2,169 and it will make Boxes AC26, AC32, AC40 and AC185 read 1,431.

Your balance sheet will agree and NO error messages.

I hope this is helpful and answers your question.

If you have any other questions, please ask me before you rate my service – I’ll be happy to respond.
