The check for $ 25,000/- had deposited in the first week of July 2010. But JJ Enterprises sent thier check for 25,000/- was issued in last week of June 2010. Our account has closed on 30th June 2010. Our book of accounts showed that we have to receive $ 25000 from JJ but JJ account showed no outstanding against us.

***Neither a teacher nor a native speaker.***

Unfortunately I don't have the time to correct this text now.
However, I would like to give you some advice.

You must learn the active and passive usage.
An account cannot close itself.
It gets closed by someone.
So you cannot say:
Our account has closed. :cross:
You can only say:
Our account has been closed. :tick:
Depending on the tense you can also write it like that:
Our account was closed.
Our account had been closed.

I have closed the account. -> The account has been closed (by me).
I closed the account. -> The account was closed (by me).
I had closed the account. -> The account had been closed (by me).

Cheers!
