Course Description

A core premise of accounting deals with the concept of journals, ledgers and journal entries.  The need for various journals or ledgers may depend on the size and structure of the organization.  Bookkeepers must understand how each tool is developed and how they interrelate.

An accounting journal is a detailed account of all the financial transactions of a business. It is also known as the book of original entry (the first place where transactions are recorded). An accounting ledger is an account or record used to store bookkeeping entries for balance sheet and income statement transactions. Accounting ledger journal entries can include accounts like cash, accounts receivable, investments, inventory, accounts payable, accrued expenses, and customer deposits. The term accounting ledger is often used interchangeably with accounting sub-ledgers or the general ledger. A general ledger contains all the accounts for recording transactions relating to a company's assets, liabilities, owners' equity, revenue, and expenses. The general ledger is where posting to the accounts occurs.

This online CPE course will examine each of these accounting tools and explain their protocols and how they are integral to the accounting process.

  • Accounting Journals
