Unlike Nik from Code to Customer who is somewhat uptight about making his accounts balance EVERY DAY, I have had a varied accounting history.
I used to have an accounts person who did the day to day bank recs etc but found that this meant I lost my overview of how we were doing and that if I actually just put aside five minutes a day, I could do it no sweat.
However, those early higgeldy piggeldy days have left my accounts a little out of synch, so I spent this Saturday morning, in bed, surrounded by bank statements and went through every transaction for the past two years.
Fun times, but now I am only out by about $300 total across all accounts , which I am happy to wipe off as the downside to having 2 accounts people and me meddle with the accounts for a while.
Does anyone else notice that the Xero balance sheet seems to update randomly (is there a time gap between changes you make to your bank transactions and it updating? I swear it has produced 3 different figures in the past half hour POST me actually making any changes!)
And now, Time to enjoy my weekend!!!
