Hi,

If I have one company that is to be closed, and a second company is to take the outstanding creditor balance on, how would this be reflected in the second company?

I would credit a 'Company 1 creditor' code, but what would the debit side be? Surely not an expense code to the P+L and it was already expense in company 1.

If anyone could help with the journal, that would be great.

Thanks

When you account this transfer in the closing company, you probably do :
Dr creditors
Cr retained profit(shareholders funds)

Then in the new company this should be recorder as follows:
Dr retained profit(shareholders funds)
Cr trade creditors

Does this make sense?
