7 2. Accounting Equation The financial position of a company is measured by the following items: 1. Assets (what it owns) 2. Liabilities (what it owes to others) 3. Owner s Equity (the difference between assets and liabilities) The accounting equation (or basic accounting equation) offers us a simple way to understand how these three amounts relate to each other. The accounting equation for a sole proprietorship is: Assets = Liabilities + Owner s Equity Assets Liabilities Owners Equity
8 2. Accounting Equation 2.1 Assets : Assets are a company s resources things the company owns. Examples of assets include cash, accounts receivable, inventory, prepaid insurance, investments, land, buildings, equipment, and goodwill. From the accounting equation, we see that the amount of assets must equal the combined amount of liabilities plus owner s (or stockholders ) equity. 2.2 Liability : Liabilities are a company s obligations amounts the company owes. Examples of liabilities include notes or loans payable, accounts payable, salaries and wages payable, interest payable, and income taxes payable (if the company is a regular corporation). Liabilities can be viewed in two ways: (1) as claims by creditors against the company s assets, and (2) a source along with owner or stockholder equity of the company s assets. 2.3 Owners Equity : Owner s equity or stockholders equity is the amount left over after liabilities are deducted from assets: Assets Liabilities = Owner s (or Stockholders ) Equity. Owner s or stockholders equity also reports the amounts invested into the company by the owners plus the cumulative net income of the company that has not been withdrawn or distributed to the owners.

14 3. Types of Transactions Types of Transactions Cash Transactions Credit Transactions Cash Transactions : A transaction that is settled with cash on the same day as the trade. Example : Ram bought a fridge for a cash of 3000 INR Credit Transactions : Credit transactions are dealings which you could pay later. e.g.. pay for the goods or services at the end of the month or 30 days later. The credit terms are the time you are allowed to delay payment, eg. 30 days, 7 days.
15 4.1 Purchases Purchases Account : A temporary account used in the periodic inventory system to record the purchases of merchandise for resale. (Purchases of equipment or supplies are not recorded in the purchases account.) This account reports the gross amount of purchases of merchandise. Net purchases is the amount of purchases minus purchases returns, purchases allowances, and purchases discounts.
16 4.2 Sales Sales represents income or revenue for the Organization Sales refers to the amount of goods sold that are already bought or manufactured by the business. When goods are sold for cash, they are cash sales but if goods are sold andpaymentisnotreceivedatthetimeofsale,itiscredit sales. Total sales includes both cash and credit sales.
17 5. Types of Accounts Real Account: Real accounts are related to asset account which can be touched felt, e.g. building account, machinery account, stock, furniture etc Personal Account: Personal accounts are related to persons, institutions companies. examples : bank account, creditors a/c etc Nominal Account: Nominal accounts are related to income and expenses or losses and gains examples are rent, commission, salary etc
18 6. Golden Rules of Accounting Debit The Receiver, Credit The Giver This principle is used in the case of personal accounts. When a person gives something to the organization, it becomes an inflow and therefore the person must be credit in the books of accounts. The converse of this is also true, which is why the receiver needs to be debited. Debit What Comes In, Credit What Goes Out This principle is applied in case of real accounts. Real accounts involve machinery, land and building etc. They have a debit balance by default. Thus when you debit what comes in, you are adding to the existing account balance. This is exactly what needs to be done. Similarly when you credit what goes out, you are reducing the account balance when a tangible asset goes out of the organization. Debit All Expenses And Losses, Credit All Incomes And Gains This rule is applied when the account in question is a nominal account. The capital of the company is a liability. Therefore it has a default credit balance. When you credit all incomes and gains, you increase the capital and by debiting expenses and losses, you decrease the capital. This is exactly what needs to be done for the system to stay in balance. S NO Debit Credit 1 The Receiver The Giver 2 What comes in What comes out 3 All expenses and losses All incomes and gains
