9

accounting s focus
Accounting’s Focus
  • To assess:
    • The financial position of the organization relative to its debts (liabilities)
    • Its capabilities to satisfy those debts and continue operations (assets), and
    • The difference between liabilities and assets (net worth or equity)
  • The Accounting Equation,

Assets = Liabilities + Equity

10

accounts and chart of accounts
Accounts and Chart of Accounts
  • Business transactions are recorded in several types of ledgers, called accounts
  • The summary of all transactions in all ledgers for a company is called the GeneralLedger
  • A listing of every account in the General Ledger is called the Chart of Accounts.
  • Each account has a type (i.e., asset, liability, equity, income, or expense)

10

double entry accounting
Double-entry Accounting
  • Total debits must always equal total credits
  • In QuickBooks, every transaction creates a debit in one or more accounts and a credit in one or more accounts to handle double-entry accounting
  • Depending on the type of account, a debit might increase the account or decrease it; the same is true of credits
  • Therefore, debits are not always bad and credits are not always good

12

cash versus accrual
Cash Versus Accrual
  • The accrual basis method
    • Revenues and expenses are recognized in the period in which the transactions occur, rather than in the period in which cash changes hands
  • The cash basis method
    • Revenues and expenses are not recognized until cash changes hands
  • With QuickBooks, you can create reports for either method

12

the accounting in quickbooks
The Accounting in QuickBooks
  • Transactions are entered in familiar-looking forms such as Invoices, Bills and Checks
  • QuickBooks handles the accounting debit and credit entries
  • This allows you to focus on the business transaction rather than the debits and credits in the General Ledger
