  • Examples of Source Documents:
    • Deposit Slips, Invoices, Sales Slips, Contracts, memos, packing slips, electronic memos, etc.

    • It gives the post reference number of the ledger accounts involved. (after the transaction has been posted to the ledger accounts)

  • The “Ledger Accounts” are individual records of all the assets, liabilities, and owners equity accounts.
  • Each Ledger Account is updated daily and keeps a ongoing record of activity in the account and balance of the account.
  • All data that goes into the ledger accounts must first be put into the journal and then posted from the journal to the ledger account on the day the information is journalized.
