    pastel question

    Hi there,

    I installed pastel v12 on a main computer then i installed a workgroup v12 on my laptop...now i cannot use pastel without accessing the server....but my laptop is off sight. There is actualy no need to access the server as i just make backups and restore the backups when i head back to the office...is there a way i can create a private network to run pastel to workaround this problem?
    Because as it stands now i cannot use pastel without it asking me for my server address.

    Thanks

    Will you be the only person accessing Pastel? If so, then there is no need for you to have installed and registered it on the server.

    Simply reregister Pastel on your laptop as a standalone/server.

    Hi Neville,

    2 people will be. Myself and the head office. The head office is where Pastel will be installed normally and i will be on laptop roaming(i got workgroup serial no)...But I want to use Pastel fully without having to always connecting to the main computer.
    The question is I dont want to be always on romote ...its just easier just making a backup from the head office.


    way to set this up?
    Thanks

    Hi Roger,

    I assume that you have a two-user licence. If so, the licence only works on two computers that are networked on the same site.

    It is possible, however, to apply for a site licence for your laptop (free of charge) but you will need to contact Pastel to arrange that.

    Hi Neville,

    I have asked my reseller regarding this. Apparently Pastel is quite strict on this. But I have a legitimate reason, so I dont see what the problem could be.
    Thanks

    Hi Neville,

    The site licence is not free now (quite a large annual fee is now due) The only way is to use log me in to use the server. It still does not solve avoiding ADSL usage.

    Thanks

    Hello all,

    I just want to make sure as i haven't been doing bookkeeping for a few years now.. i have just done all the salary journal entries for the year (monthly) but now my question is:

    I have a Paye&UIF control account which was debited.
    I need to close off this control account but not sure where to close it off too, I'm sure its an expense for the business and need to be a expense account.
    What would this account be called?

    Regards

    Hi mango,

    On our system PAYE and UIF fall under the 4410/000 and 4415/000 account numbering and are both Income Statement - I25 Expenses.

    Hi there,

    Sorry...i think i wasnt clear enough so ill explain again.

    Lets say we have 1 employee called Mike , hes earning R 10 000 gross per month in the 2014 year.

    This is what i did:
    Nett salary is R 9 106.67 -- Credit bank and debited "Control account - salaries & Wages"
    Paye & UIF R 993.33 -- Credit Bank and debited "Control account - Paye / UIF"

    My question now is was this done correctly? if so how do i do the month end journals?

    That sounds right to me. Did you do this via the Cash Book? If so then journal entries are not required as it will post it to the relevant accounts as soon as you update the Cash Book.

    If you did them as journal entries, then I do not understand the question about doing month end journals. Could you explain further?
