VT Transactions


Hi, please could a VT user please enlighten me on what journal entries I would need to enter for a company that has Fixed assets (Property) b/f and the same with P&L. I understand the principle just not which ledgers to use?

Thanks, Sam

Hi Sam

Do you mean depreciation or when an asset is sold?

On top of what John says, it also depends on what sort of property it is

Thank you. VT is so much simpler than Sage, just takes a bit of getting used to. What about the reserves?

Hi Sam

Debit P&L - Brought Forwards

Credit Creditors - Reserves

Should then show in the B/S as a liability

Thanks Doug, when I go to creditors there isn't the option for reserves, how do I set it up?
Appreciate your help

Hi Sam

After the creditors ledger, next to the accounts list you should see an option saying 'New' just click on this and you can then call a category anything you like
