Take on balances

Top  Previous  Next

In order to bring the balances into Smart-It Accounting, you will need to have certain documentation from the previous accounting system.


Documentation Needed

General Ledger

Trial balance or balance sheet from the previous accounting system and bank statements. It is best to use a trial balance or balance sheet that has been audited.

Customer Balances

Customer age analysis.

Supplier Balances

Supplier age analysis.

Inventory Balances

An accurate stock take, with cost prices for each item.


When taking on balances, your entries will not have tax as tax has already been accounted for on all of the transactions when you originally posted them in your previous accounting system. All of the balances will be exclusive of tax.
