Sir i have a query..
A credit note for $95 sent to Bury co had been correctly entered in the day book but was entered in the account in the receivable ledger as $75.
what is the revised balance of the receivable ledger after correcting these errors..
i understand the previous erros whether we have to subtract or add..but in this we are subtracting the credit note error? sir do we never add any credit note amount in the receivable ledger?
we are here doing this 49449-20=..why not adding 20? to make out the difference
Credit notes are the opposite of invoices – they always reduce the amount owing to us by the customer, and therefore are credited to receivables.
They had credited with too small an amount, and therefore we need to subtract the extra 20 to get the correct total.
