  8. Make the required adjustment in the debit or credit column. Note that all figures are to be entered as positive values;

  9. Complete steps 7 and 8 until the journal is balanced;

  10. Add Comments to support the journal as required;

  11. Your journal will now appear on the Summary of Adjusted Misstatements or the Summary of Unadjusted Misstatements as selected.


To process an Adjusted or Unadjusted Journal Entry is the same simple process. All you need to do is select the appropriate journal type in the menu provided.
