Companies House - accounts filing


Hi can anybody explain why the attached balance sheet won't balance on the CH filing? I'm guessing it's because the long term creditors are negative but I'm not sure what to do, do I take it away from the short term creditors amount?

I didn't do the accounts they just need filing btw.

Thanks

Sam

Hi Sam
Only a quick glance as up against it at the mo!

This look like a sage report. Has it been generated from SAP and represents exactly what is due to be lodged? Gut feeling is that it isnt. What about your adjustments for non tax items, add backs etc - they wouldnt show on sage.

Report looks a bit of a nightmare tbh - eg debit balance in the wages control account - indicates (possibly) journals havent been done.

I wouldnt file from this/using these figures.

What is the background/your input to this (why just filing?)

Hi Jo, the wife of the director has done the work and it is a Sage version I can't access and that is all they have requested

Hi Sam
So who has produced the actual FULL accounts and where are they? Plus where are the filleted accounts?

The accounts apart from the paperwork I have been given is at their premises and I wouldn't know where to start working out what has happened

Im very confused. Sage looks to be a right old dogs dinner.

Apart from the wages control account being in debit, overdrawn cash is another issue. What about depreciation etc. What is included in the P&L for the year? I dont know ANYONE who could produce anything meaningful from this report. Or am I missing something here?

If they have had accounts prepared and they are at their premises - who produced the accounts for them? Why have they not filed said accounts with CH? Who is doing the CT return?

Has the Director's wife done the final Accounts? Is she an Accountant?

Hi Sam
TBH I wouldnt touch this with a bargepole. You should push this right back at them and refuse to do anything and tell them that your governing body and PI insurers will not allow it. Sure as eggs are for breakfast that it will come back to bite if they encounter an issue (which one day they surely will)
