General tips

Give adequate detail so you can recognise the entry on the download and on print-outs.

  • For payroll items, state the person’s assignment number and the period to which it relates, e.g. 223311-1, September 2016. You should also then state whether it relates to pay, national insurance, superannuation or overtime.
  • For creditors/debtor items, you should include enough detail so that it is possible to easily ascertain the context and nature of the journal transaction.
  • Consider a summary entry for multiple low value items.
