Do you print out your general ledger for the week and ask your boss to initial?

In your first month as an Accountant for a new company, you should print out the general ledger for the week and ask your boss to initial to say that the "cheque numbers and memo descriptions are good".

It's good to catch any mistakes early, so that you know the requirements early on and don't have to go back and fix up large amounts of data later.

Do whatever you have to do e.g. drive to your boss' house to get this done! It can save you days of work down the track.
