Sales and VAT (Trial Balance)

I have entered balances that my accountant gave me (trial balance) from year end accounts and I am not sure how it works with some entries…

On trial balance I have opening entries of from the previous period:

VAT Control £7000 (CR)
Sales Ledger £14400 (DR)

These amounts were paid a few days into my new financial year but I am unsure to me next entries.

Debit Bank
Credit Sales Ledger

But the amount paid into bank was including VAT which is higher than the £14400?
