    Your bank overdraft is a liability and should be a credit. You have rent down a few times, rent & rent paid is that correct as that won't be helping matters.

    Rent Received should have a credit balance. Rent paid is a debit balance. When I did foundation I remembered ALER which is :


    Assets......: Liabilities
    Expenses..: .Revenue

    I think Inland Revenue be a credit balance. It's normally a liability from paying Wages and Salaries.

    If you've got "rent paid", "rent received" and "rent" as three seperate amounts then I'm assuming "rent" in this question is a "Rent control Account" in your listing where this account is used to records transactions from receiving rent from tenants and any bank or cash payments the tenants make - works just like a sales ledger control account - since it's possible to have more than one tenant as other debtors. A "rent control account" has a debit balance.

    Try it in your trial balance and see if it works.
