    Need more info, but I'd guess you're missing some reserves. What's on suspense? The balancing figure after posting the above? Are there more entries or just those 4?

    When you say opening balances, are you setting up a new Sage file or are these opening balance adjustments from year-end account prepared by someone else?

    these are the only figures I have been provided with and they reflect the figure in suspense.I am setting up a new package.

    I think Ive solved the paye and vat ,I have got opening balances for sales tax and purchase tax also I have opening balances for net wages and gross wages if I journal all of these I think it will remove the figure from suspense.I also have one opening balance for stock which I need to remove from suspense ,Kenw
