Imbalances of Debtor Accounts and Control Accounts
by Carl Bown
Q: What are the possible reasons for imbalances in these accounts?
A: Carl, I assume your question is regarding imbalances between debtor (or creditor) control accounts (general ledger) and between the individual debtor (or creditor) accounts in the debtors or creditors ledger. With that in mind...
Remember that the entries in the control accounts are general entries of totals from the subsidiary ledgers. So any error in "posting" these totals could cause an imbalance.
Likewise, entries in the individual accounts come from the individual entries in the subsidiary journals. So any error in "posting" the individual journal entries to these individual accounts could also cause an imbalance.
I know that is not very specific, but I hope that gives you a better idea of what could have caused an imbalance. If not, pop me another question with more details.
Q:What is the reconciliation processes of property debtors on leased properties?
A: Anna, this should be the same as for a regular debtor's reconciliation. I.e. reconciling the list of individual debtors accounts in the debtor's ledger with the total of the debtor's control account in the general ledger. Hope that helps.
