Student or Learner
I actually have two questions which both have to do the following conversation between Basil,who is the director of finance of a company ,and a woman,who probablly works under him.
-Basil:Have the ledgers been run up for June
-Woman:Shall we go into my office the paperwork has to stay
So my fisrt question is what's the meaning of "Have the ledgers been run up for June"? Does it mean that the total of the account for June has been reached or that we are heavely in debt in June or something else?
My second question is what's the meaning of " the paperwork has to stay".Does it mean that the relevant paper isn't allowed to be taken out of the office or that the paperwork has to be done in the office?
Any help is much appreciated.Thank you all.
