Any explanations the Factor may have to make in reference to the Estate should be stated here, and not in the form of a letter or separate paper.

Form 12, Form of Account issued by the Accountant of Court for the Guidance of Judicial Factors
In order to afford assistance to those Factors who have not been used to the preparation of Accounts of Charge and Discharge, the following Form has been. prepared. The example is purposely of the most simple character, and though the Entries are too briefly expressed, it illustrates the entire principle on which such an account should be stated. It assumes the pre-existence of a correct CASH BOOK and RENTAL kept by the Factor. The Factor must not mix any of these branches, and he must especially separate and minutely distinguish Revenue from Capital. All Vouchers must be lodged at once, and with the Account.

Note. It is the special interest of each Factor thus to RECORD, once a year, by one State of Accounts (which is carefully preserved in the Accountant's office), a full and clear view of his management. This will avert the need of all other loose papers or correspondence, and the questions likely to arise from complicated corrections and explanations.
