Opening Story
  • Do you have any idea about how your parents keep an “account” of how much the family spends?
  • What a good family accountant!
opening story4
Opening Story
  • A global demand for accountants – where can the “Big Four” find accountants with talent and virtues?
    • Mr.Land, E&Y British president (indirect quote)

In the recent 18 months, the shortage of accounting talents has been scarcely satisfied. The most valuable in the 21st century is accountants to special accounting firms like us. (2005-7-21)

the account
The Account

Accounting’s main summary device

is the account, the record of changes.

Accounts are grouped in 3 broad categories,

according to the accounting equation:

Assets = Liabilities + Stockholders' Equity

Cash

the assets account

Assets are the economic resources that

benefit the business now and in the future

Cash

Accounts receivable

Inventory

Notes receivable

Prepaid expenses

Supplies

Properties

Buildings

Equipment

The Assets Account
the liabilities account

Liabilitiesare the debts of the company.

Notes payable

Accounts payable

Accrued liabilities

(for expenses incurred but not paid)

Long-term liabilities (bonds)

The Liabilities Account
the equity account
The Equity Account

Stockholders’ (owners’) equity is the

owners’ claims to the assets of a corporation.

A proprietorship uses a single account.

A partnership uses separate accounts for each

owner’s capital balance and withdrawals.

A corporation uses separate capital

accounts for each source of capital.

recording transactions
Recording Transactions
  • Record transactions first in the journal (analyses)
  • Ledger
  • Posting
  • Trial balance
analysis of each transaction
Analysis of each transaction
  • Identify the transaction from the source document, such as a sales invoice or check stub
  • Determine which accounts increase and which decrease
  • Apply the rules of debit and credit
  • Enter the transaction in the journal, listing first the debit and then the credit
  • Verify that total debits equal total credits
a journal entry
A journal entry
  • A journal entry would appear as follows:Account Name XX (debit amount)

Account Name XX (credit amount)

Brief explanation of the transaction.

ledger
Ledger
  • A group of accounts.
  • All the accounts of a business grouped together form a book called the ledger (or general ledger).
posting
Posting
  • The process of copying (transferring) data from the journal to accounts in the ledger.
    • Debits in the journal are posted as debits to the appropriate accounts; credits in the journal are posted as credits to the appropriate accounts.
    • All transactions must be keyed by date or number to provide a link between the journal and the ledger.
    • Ledger accounts appear after a series of transactions have been posted and account balances calculated.
trial balance
Trial balance
  • The trial balance is a listing, in general ledger order (assets, liabilities, then stockholders’ equity), of the debit or credit balance in each account
transactions accounts and rules of debits credits
Transactions, Accounts and Rules of Debits & Credits
  • Owners’ investment of cash increases both assets and stockholders’ equity.
  • Purchase of an asset for cash increases assets and decreases assets (no effect on total assets).
  • Purchase of an asset on credit (on account) increases both assets and liabilities.
  • Receipt of cash for service revenue increases both assets and stockholders’ equity.
  • Performance of services on account increases both assets and stockholders’ equity.
  • Cash payment of expenses decreases both assets and stockholders’ equity.

Transactions, Accounts and Rules of Debits & Credits (cont)
  • Payment on account decreases both assets and liabilities.
  • Personal transactions of the owner do not affect the business, per the entity concept.
  • Collection of cash on account increases assets and decreases assets.
  • Sale of an asset at a price equal to its cost increases assets and decreases assets.
  • Declaration and payment of cash dividends decreases both assets and stockholders’ equity.

summary
Summary
  • Accounts are used to appropriately categorize transactions.
  • T-accounts are a simplified version used in practice.
  • The type of account determines the side on which increases and decreases are recorded; the rules of debit and credit keep the accounting equation in balance
  • In the double-entry accounting system, at least two accounts are always affected by a transaction. After a transaction is recorded, the accounting equationmust remain in balance.
  • Economic transactions of a business will impact various asset, liability, and/or equity accounts; but, they will not disturb the equality of the accounting equation. 
case for discussion
Case for Discussion
  • In order for all accounts to look the same, and to simultaneously make sure that the accounting equation stays in balance with double-entry bookkeeping, the debit and credit system was devised. Luca Pacioli first described it in 1494, and the basic system is so sound and efficient, we still use it today. Tradition aside, we would not still be using this ancient system if it did not work extremely well and efficiently. One could set up a system with pluses and minuses, but it would not be as efficient at generating the data needed for financial statements while making sure that the accounting equation was still in balance. One is more likely to make mistakes in entering data with plus and minus signs, although this is a secondary concern to theissues of uniformity and efficiency.
  • Why use debits and credits rather than pluses andminuses?
