BATCH (JOURNAL) PROCESSING OPTIONS
LIST A BATCH (JOURNAL)
  
After entering all your transactions in a batch, and before updating or posting the transactions to the ledger, you need to print a list of the transactions entered in the batch. This will allow you to finally check that all of the transactions entered into a batch are correct. If there are any errors, you should edit and correct them before posting the batch. Once the transactions in a batch are updated or posted to the ledger, and there were errors, you need to process another transaction in another batch to correct these errors.

It is also good practice to print a batch list and attach the source documents (e.g. slips, invoices, etc.) from which you have entered the transactions in the batch. The reason for this is that there have to be an audit trial to the transactions. This will also enable you or any auditor or inspector (e.g. from the Receiver of Revenue or Inland Revenue) to independently verify the transactions in your set of books. In accordance with various legislation (e.g. Income Tax Act, VAT Act, Companies Act, etc.), the records of account (including source documents) should be retained for a prescribed period (usually 5 years).

You may list the entries at any time when transactions have been entered in a batch even if the batch has been balanced or not. Before printing a list of your batch transactions, you need to decide if you wish to include the balancing entries. Should you wish to include the balancing entries on your batch list, you need to first balance the batch.
