    Okay, so in the last quarter £31,650 was due to HMRC, which means it's on the credit side (a liability).The payment of the liability should have been on the debit side, i.e. reducing the liability.

    However, the payment was posted on the wrong side (the credit side), so last quarter's balance was £63,300. Adding the amount due to HMRC in this quarter, we get a credit balance of £100,125.

    So in essence all the postings mentioned will be on the credit side.
