So I started an entry level job in accounting. I'm actually just the accounting assistant. I assist the CFO at our company. I noticed there are a lot of things he's a bit vague about. I told him I have no experience in accounting so I've just picked up on things I've learned from the internet. The one question I have is when balancing the general ledger he is just really having me be a second set of eyes. I'm balancing only the liabilities. He will give me the unadjusted trial balance and that is it. I have no access to the general ledger which is in quick books. My question would be how should I go about finding the errors ? My first thought would be to go to accounts payable and find all the invoices, receipts and such to see if I could come across discrepancies. Maybe I'm just reading too much into it. I feel like I need more resources.
