Balance c/d & Balance B/d PLCA

Hi Guys,

This may be a stupid question but one I don't know the answer to.

Can someone please tell me why in the PLCA below, Balance c/d and Balance b/d are both at the top of the T account? Compared to the VAT control account below it?

    Is that the answer or your response?

    For the purpose of the question it doesn't matter as you don't need the accounts laid out correctly to get the answer. Balance carried down would generally be at the bottom as it is your balancing figure but for questions like this you should get the marks as long as the figures match the accounts.

    If this is the answer the full question might have laid out the information in a particular way so the answer has listed them in the order they appeared in the question, which is the easiest to keep track of.
