1 Chapter 4: Accounting Records Structure and terminology of Double Entry Bookkeeping The T account records the effect of transactions under one accounting aspect two opposite effects possible, e.g. inflows opposite to outflows inflows are summed on one side, outflows on the other Example: Beginning balance Inflows y 1... The cash account b y t Outflows x 1... x t 1

2 Axioms The left hand side of any T-account is called the debit side, the right hand side is called the credit side. 1. Every transaction must be recorded with (at least) one debit and one credit entry, in such a way that total debit entries due to the transaction equal total credit entries due to the same transaction in the accounts. 2. Initial balance and cash inflows are debited (= booked on the debit side), cash outflows are credited... e.g. if an amount of money is received from a credit the counter item is an addition to the right hand side of the account for the creditor 2

3 Meaning of debit and credit The choice of the right account side is the core of the art of bookkeeping so accountants since the middle ages looked for a theory to determine that one possible theory is the personalistic theory: it considers each account as representing a partner of the business owner: e.g. the owner gives the cash to the cashier. So the cashier owes (Latin: debet) to the owner the amount of money in cash. the counter item is a credit item, e.g. on the creditor s account. The creditor has entrusted (Latin: credet) us the money. The english words are shortcuts debit for debitor ( dr. ) and credit for creditor (cr.) 3

4 debiting an account make an entry on the left-hand side of an account crediting an account make an entry on the right-hand side of an account total of debit amounts > total of credit amounts total of debit amounts < total of credit amounts debit balance credit balance note that a debit balance occurs on the credit side on account closing and vice versa. normal balance side (debit or credit) that increases the stock or flow represented in the account 4

5 Derived rules Recall the basic accounting equation Assets = Liabilities + Owner s Equity if a debit increases assets, then a credit counter item has to increase liabilities (or owner s equity) i.e. increases and decreases in assets and liabilities (or owner s equity) must be recorded opposite to each other! Increases in assets are debited. Decreases in assets are credited. Increases in liabilities are credited. Decreases in liabilities are debited. Assets Liabilities Debit Credit Debit Credit for for for for Increase Decrease Decrease Increase 5

6 Owner s Equity Recall that owner s investments and revenues increase owner s equity, while owner s withdrawals and expenses decrease owner s equity. Separate accounts are kept for these items. Owner s Capital. This account is affected by, for example, owner s investment. Increases in owner s capital are credited. Decreases in owner s capital are debited. Owner's Capital Debit for Decrease Credit for Increase 6

7 Owner s Withdrawals The owner may, for example, withdraw cash for personal use. It could be debited directly to Owner s Capital but a separate account is kept to determine total withdrawals. Increases in owner s withdrawals are debited. Decreases in owner s withdrawals are credited. Owner's Withdrawal Debit for Increase Credit for Decrease 7

8 Revenues and Expenses Revenues increase owner s equity, just as an increase in owner s capital does. Thus, debiting and crediting of a revenue account is the same as debiting and crediting of owner s capital account. Expenses, however, have the opposite effect. Revenues Expenses Debit Credit Debit Credit for for for for Decrease Increase Increase Decrease Increases in revenues are credited. Decreases in revenues are debited. Increases in expenses are debited. Decreases in expenses are credited. 8

9 The Expanded Basic Accounting Equation Assets = Liabilities + Owner's Equity Assets = Liabilities + Owner's Capital - Owner's Withdrawal + Revenues - Expenses Increases Decreases Decreases Increases Decreases Increases Increases Decreases Decreases Increases Increases Decreases (Dr.) (Cr.) (Dr.) (Cr.) (Dr.) (Cr.) (Dr.) (Cr.) (Dr.) (Cr.) (Dr.) (Cr.) Assets + Expenses = Liabilities + Owner s Capital + Revenues uses (debits) sources (credits) Note: Owner s withdrawal would appear on the lhs of the equation (it s also a debit) but was set zero to link together the five elements of financial statements. 9

10 Closing an account is a transaction 1. Sum the entries on the larger side below the line 2. repeat the sum below the line on the other side 3. strike the balance: insert the amount missing such that the sums of entries on both sides are equal (i.e. solving the account equation) 4. enter the counter item to the appropriate account Beginning balance 100 Inflows Cash (Period 1) Outflows Balance 600 Cash (Period 2) 4. Beginning balance

11 Booking of the counter item (in theory) appropriate account need not be the cash account of the next period could be a hierarchically superior closing account, e.g. cash and cash equivalents this could be closed to the balance sheet in order to reopen accounts for the next period the line item cash and cash equivalents in the balance sheet could be counterbooked to an account which is closed by booking out the individual items to the respective accounts, e.g. the cash account for the next period This is not the practical procedure, this theoretically possible procedure shall only make clear the mechanics of double entry bookkeeping 11

12 Example A small company named ZiscoSys. The transactions are stated in chronological order: (1) Owner s Investment to start up the business (2) Purchase of equipment for paid in cash (3) Purchase of supplies on credit for 500 (4) 400 payment of a liability (accounts payable resulting from delivery of supplies) (5) revenues earned on credit (6) collection of accounts receivable (7) Incurring expenses of 500 for rent and 200 for utility, resp., and Prepaid Insurance of (8) reception of a down payment of for services to be performed (unearned revenue or deferred revenue), and (9) Owner s withdrawal of

13 Transaction 1 initial investment Cash Owner's Equity Increase in cash is debited; increase in owner s equity is credited. Transaction 2 purchase of equipment Cash Equipment Decrease in cash is credited; increase in equipment is credited. 13

14 Transaction 5 services rendered on credit Accounts Receivable Revenues Increase in accounts receivable is debited; increase in revenues is credited. Transaction 7 insurance policy bought Prepaid Insurance Cash Increase in prepaid insurance is debited; decrease in cash is credited. 14

15 Asset Accounts Cash Accounts Receivable Equipment Supplies Prepaid Insurance = Owner's Equity Accounts Owner's Investment Owner's Withdrawal Liability Accounts Accounts Payable Unearned Revenue Revenues Expenses

16 Commonly Used Accounts Different enterprises may use different accounts the number and type (and name) depends on the nature of business and the size of the enterprise Caretaker service sole proprietorship one account for wage expenses (probably) no account for plant and property... rather low number of accounts Automobile manufacturer corporate giant separate accounts for wage expenses of, say, production and clerical workers certainly (at least) one account for plant and property... numerous accounts 16

17 Some important accounts common to most enterprises Chart of Accounts for a Small Business Assets Liabilities Revenues Cash 111 Notes Payable 211 Sales 411 Notes Receivable 112 Accounts Payable 212 Commissions Earned 412 Accounts Receivable 113 Wages Payable 213 Fees Receivable 114 Unearned Revenues 231 Expenses Office Supplies 115 Prepaid Rent 116 Owner's Equity Wages Expense 511 Prepaid Insurance 117 Utility Expense 512 Land 141 Capital 311 Telephone Expense 513 Building 142 Withdrawal 312 Insurance Expense 514 Equipment 148 Income Summary 313 Depreciation Expense, 521 Equipment Depreciation Expense, 522 Building For tractability reasons, accounts are numbered! 17

18 The Recording Process Step 1: Journalizing The journal is a complete and chronological list of all transactions that occurred. journal is the book of original entry! common to have more than one kind of journal special purpose journals, e.g. cash receipts journal or sales journal general journal: all transactions are recorded in this journal a complete entry provides the following information date of recording date of transaction accounts and amounts to be debited and credited short explanation of the transaction number of account (if posted) 18

19 ZiscoSys general journal General Journal Page 1 Date Description Post. Ref. Debit Credit Cash Sept. Owner s Investment Personal funds transferred to the account of ZiscoSys 3 Equipment Cash Equipment bought with cash payment Simple entry Compound entry 8 Supplies 500 Cash 400 Accounts Payable 100 Purchase of supplies partially with cash and on credit Simple entry one debit and credit entry Compound entry more than one debit and/or credit entry 19

20 Journal: the basic accounting document The journal contains the complete information on transactions that enter the accounting system it is the basic documentation and serves as instrument of evidence in litigation it is not allowed to cancel journal entries mistaken entries have to be reversed by a contra-entry In electronic accounting systems the journal is the only data base on transactions the system has to assure that once an entry is made, it can no longer be influenced or altered by anyone ledger accounts are views of the data base that are generated online, they are not records in their own right (Principle of data integrity: any information is only stored once) the system of ledger accounts can thus be altered at any time according to new needs for analysis A sufficient number of safety copies (mirror images) of the journal have to be kept up-to-date. 20

21 Step 2: Posting all accounts taken together in one file the ledger process of transferring journal entries to the ledger accounts posting as with journals, there may be more than one kind of ledger general ledger contains all accounts general ledger asset accounts liability accounts owner s equity accounts cash accounts receivable prepaid expenses equipment notes payable accounts payable unearned revenues bonds owner s capital owner s withdrawal expenses revenues 21

23 Step 3: The Trial Balance... is a list of accounts and their balances at any equal point in time usually prepared periodically (end of accounting period) used to double-check equality of debits and credits limitations: omission errors cannot be detected! possibly offsetting errors!
