I have taken over a client who uses Quickbooks deskptop (not the new online version which other clients also use)
It is all pretty much in order however, they have a takings account, which all sales are logged into, which then card and cash payments are transferred out of into either the bank account (when the pdqs hit the bank account a day or so later) and the cash payments are transferred to the 'cash' account. I should add that both the bank and the cash accounts are reconciled and up to date.
This all works well however I have discovered some anomolies with this takings account which has not been reconciled for a while, and there are some duplications and therefore, over estimation of sales, which also means they would have paid over the odds on their VAT.
Can I make corrections to this account using the actual dates of the erros, or should I date them as of now. Ideally, all these corrections will be carried forward to their next VAT return and adjust it? As it goes back into last summer, I just wanted to make these changes in the most transparent way.
any advice very much appreciated.
