It's easy enough if you could just tell me which figure to put in which cell as they are different for some reason on Companies House website to Xero reports
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
any news?

I am looking at the figures...

what is your called up share capital

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
the company is actually not regulated by shares but guarantee. It has £1 guarantee from 2 directors so I would say 2

Please clarify

Accounts show a profit of £169, yet the balance sheet is showing net liabilities

Current assets 431

Creditors -600 .. what is this figure made of?

Net current assets -169

Can you explain the difference

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
600 was a director loan repaid within a year
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
it should really be 431 + 600 = 131 net current assets I think

Your balance sheet does not balance

Consider these figures for your micro-entity accounts

Current assets 431

Creditors: amounts falling due within one year -262

Net current assets 169

Capital and reserves 169

last year figures are zero

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.

thank you! that's why I needed help because my BS did not balance. How about called up share holder capital? the form requires that I put a figure in there, it does not accept 'zeros'

I suggest you reduce creditors to -260

This makes Net current assets 171

Capital and reserves

Called up share capital 2

Profit & loss 169

Shareholder's funds 171

This will make it balance

I hope this is helpful and answers your question.

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
but it requires called up shares entered in last year's where it's all 'zero' and would not accept it

change last year to read

current assets 2

capital and reserves

called up share capital 2

profit and loss 0

Shareholders' funds 2

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
what if I use 'revaluation reserve' and show -2, then it gives us 'ZERO' total shareholders funds for last year
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
OK thank you!

No you don't use revaluation reserve

I hope this is helpful and answers your question. and other Tax Specialists are ready to help you

I thank you for accepting my answer.

Best wishes.
