Try sales and VAT

If you are introducing debtors as you have produced the working papers from bank statements then the other side is sales and if VAT registered the VAT account.

This assumes that the sale is not the sale of a fixed asset or other "non-sales" item.

Opening / Sales

Sorry just read your question again and I am now not sure understood your question correctly.

Say we are talking about accounts for the year ended 31 Dec-12.  Are you asking about the entry into the 31 Dec-12 accounts or the entry as at 01 Jan-13.


If we are talking about 31 Dec-12 then sales and VAT and if we are talking as at 01 Jan-13 then opening reserves and VAT.
