Chapter 19
Balancing the Ledger
In This Chapter
• Proving accounts
• Adjusting for errors
• Making the posts
Now that you’ve closed all your sub-ledgers, it’s time to work on the general ledger and your bank accounts.

Next we look at how you adjust for any errors and then finally how you post all you’ve just done to the general ledger.
