Finally, you’ll learn that T-accounts are no▯ t the only way to record accounting transactions. 5.1 Accounts for debtors Introduction Where debtors have paid their accounts This part is concerned with preparing, from double entry records, the financial statements of sole traders. So far you have learnt how to record transactions in the accounting books▯ by means of debit and credit entries. At the end of each accounting period the figures in eac▯ h account are examined in order to summarise the situation they present. This will often, but not a▯ lways, be a year if you are calculating profit.

Probably the most obvious reason for thi▯s is to find out how 8 Balance sheets 83 much our customers owe us for goods we have sold to them. In most busines▯ ses this is done at 9 Trading and profit and loss accounts and balance sheets: the end of each month. further considerations 91 10 Accounting concepts 104 Activity Why do you think we would want to look at the debtor accounts in the 5.1 accounting books as often as once a month? 49 A wide range of exhibits offer clear examples of accounting practice and methodology. Chapter 27 l Double entry records for depreciation Part 3 l Books of original entry The depreciation is posted directly into the cumulative provision for de▯preciation account. The double entry is: 11.8 Types of accounts Debit the profit and loss account Credit the accumulated provision for depreciation account Some people describe all accounts as personal accounts or as impersonal a▯ ccounts. l Personal Accoun– these are for debtors and creditors (i.e. customers and suppliers).▯ l Impersonal Accoun– divided between ‘real’ accounts and ‘nominal’ accounts:▯ Exhibit 27.1 – Real Account– accounts in which possessions are recorded. Examples are buildings,▯ machinery, fixtures and stock. A business has a financial year end of 31 December. A computer is bough t for £2,000 on 1 January – Nominal Account– accounts in which expenses, income and capital are recorded. 20X5. It is to be depreciated at the rate of 20 per cent using the reduci ng balance method.

Why don’t we just enter transactions straight into the ledgers? Note: In this case, the depreciation for the period being posted to the profit and loss account is being described as ‘depreciation’ and not by the name of the account it is being posted from. This clearly is not the convention usually adopted when posting entries betwee n ledger accounts and is very much ‘the exception that proves the rule’. 11.10 The accountant as a communicator The impression is often given that all that an accountant does is produce▯ figures arranged in vari- ActivityWhat advantages are there in making this exception to the rule by using ous ways.

Chapter 45 l An introduction to the financial statements of limited liability compan▯ ies Part 1 l Introduction to double entry bookkeeping In Business Accounting 2 you will be told more about the differences between ‘revenue reserves’▯ Cash and ‘capital reserves’.
