I have experience in using Pastel, but not so much in terms of bookkeeping/accounting as such.
I need a foolproof way to check that all balances in the trial balance and reports (e.g. tax type report) are accurate. E.g. the VAT control account should correspond to the Tax Type Report balance.
Do you have any tips? I am very confused and need a reference point.
For example, the VAT of the company I work for had to be submitted this month. But not only did the 9500 control account not match the total in the tax type report, but I found that processing from before I started here had not been allocated the right VAT codes. How and where can I cross-check for inaccuracies?
