1 Accounting I Double Entry Bookkeeping
2 Dr. Clive Vlieland-Boddy FCA FCCA MBA Barcelona 2009
3 Qualification & Objectives You do not need to become accountants, nor can I achieve that today. You need to have a basic understanding to how financial accounts are created. So we need to appreciate the issue of Double Entry Bookkeeping..
4 History & Reasons Invented over 500 years ago. It was created to ensure that all entries are correctly and accurately recorded.
5 Objective 1 What is Double Entry Bookkeeping
6 What is Double Entry By recording the same entry twice, it enables a higher degree of confidence of the accuracy and completeness of the accounting.
7 Double Entry System Record dual effects of each transaction Each transaction affects at least two accounts Each transaction is recorded with at least One debit One credit Total debits must equal total credits
8 Debits and Credits Books of accounts and ledgers are divided in half. On the left is the so called DEBIT side. And on the right is the so called CREDIT side.
9 Objective 2 The T Account
10 Account Name (Left Side) Debit (Right Side) Credit Simple tool for analysing and determining the balance in a given account T-Account
11 Which account is debited? For what amount? Which account is credited? For what amount? The T Accounts
12 Debits Assets Bank Receipts Expenditures Losses
14 Debits & Credits If we post the same amount to both the Debit and the Credit side, then when we add up all the debits and the credits…. They will total the same. YES they WILL
15 Assets vs Liabilities In Session 2 we talked about assets and liabilities. For every asset there will be a corresponding and equal liability EG. If you buy a new car for £10,000 you will owe the garage that sum.
16 Asset Accounts ______________________________________ Debits: Increase I Credits : Reduce Assets I Assets
19 Equity (Shareholders) Account This represents the funds invested into the company by the owners. It also is the profits that have been generated to date but have not been paid out as dividends. This is really shareholders money that the company retains for future growth.
20 Income Accounts _____________________________________ Debits: Reduce I Credits : Increase IncomesI Incomes
25 But who owns theses profits The Shareholders.
26 The Shareholders As the shareholders own the profits that are generated, they are shown in the Shareholders Equity. Thus the net balances of the Incomes and Expenses are shown in Shareholders Equity.
27 Expenses _ = Expanding the Rules of Debit and Credit Shareholders Equity Debit Credit Debit Credit Debit Credit Profits = ShareholdersCapital Revenues
28 Profits and Losses ( Incomes & Expenses) Previously we talked about Incomes & Expenses. These result in either a profit or a loss depending on whether the income is greater or less than the expenditures. Therefore the net Profit or loss being owned by the shareholders is shown in the Equity account.
29 Debit/credit Revenue Shareholder Equity Liabilities Expenses Assets CreditDebitAccount How debits and credits affect the different elements of the accounts.
30 Objective 3 Work an actual example
31 Lets work Basic Example 1 ( See page 23) The owners invest 100,000 in cash into the business. So what are the double entries?
32 The Double Entries are: We have to show that the owners (Shareholders) have invested 100,000 into the business. And.. We have to show that the bank account has received 100,000
33 Assets Increases This represents a Debit entry to an Asset account. So the bank balance has increased by 100,000. Therefore we increase the bank balance by 100,000. So Debit (DR) Bank Account with 100,000
34 Equity Increases This represents an increase in the Equity account which is a Credit entry. So as the investors have injected 100,000 into the business, we need to increase the Equity account by that sum. So Credit (CR) the Equity account by 100,000.

37 Do the books Balance? YES they DO
38 Basic Example 2 The company buys a car costing 20,000. It finances this purchase by way of a Bank Loan.
39 Assets Increases This represents a Debit entry to an Asset account. The company has acquired a car costing 20,000. Therefore we increase the Asset account for Cars by 20,000. So Debit (DR) Cars (Vehicles) Account with 20,000
40 Liability Increases This represents an increase in the liability account which is a Credit entry. So as the Bank has lent 20,000 to the business, we need to increase the liability account by that sum. So Credit (CR) the Liability (Bank Loan Account) by 20,000.

43 Do the books Balance? YES they DO
44 Basic Example 3 The company repays 5,000 to the bank to reduce the loan of 20,000 it took out to buy the car.
45 Assets Decreases This represents a Credit entry to an Asset account. The company has reduce the bank by 5,000. Therefore we decrease the Bank Account by 5,000. So Credit (CR) Bank Account with 5,000
46 Liability Decreases This represents an decrease in the liability account which is a Debit entry. So as the Bank Loan has been reduced by 5,000, we need to decrease the liability account by that sum. So Debit (DR) the Liability (Bank Loan Account) by 5,000.

49 Do the books Balance? YES they DO
50 Basic Example 4 The company buys 20 widgets costing 3,000 each that it will resell (inventories or stocks) with a total value of 60,000 but still owes the supplier for them.
51 Assets Increases This represents a Debit entry to an Asset account. The company has acquired inventories of goods it will sell costing 60,000. Therefore we increase the Asset account for Inventories by 60,000. So Debit (DR) Inventories Account with 60,000
52 Liability Increases This represents an increase in the liability account which is a Credit entry. So as the company owes the supplier 60,000, we need to increase the liability account by that sum. So Credit (CR) the Liability (Accounts Payable Account) by 60,000.
53 InventoriesAccounts Payable Widgets 60,000 60,000 Supplier of Widgets
54 Analysis of Example 4 transaction: Inventories are increasing Accounts Payable is increasing CREDITDEBIT REF DESCRIPTIONDATE The Double Entry JunxInventories60,000 Accounts Payable60,000
55 Do the books Balance? YES they DO
56 Basic Example 5 The company sells 6 of the widgets it has to customers for 25,000 allowing 90 days for them to pay for the goods.
57 Accounts ReceivableSales of Widgets Customer x 25,00025,000 Sales
58 Analysis of Example 5 transaction: Accounts Receivable is increasing Sales is increasing CREDITDEBIT REF DESCRIPTIONDATE The Double Entry Junx Accounts Receivable25,000 Sales of Widgets25,000
59 But we need to match income with expenditure….. We have shown the total sales of 6 units but as yet no cost has been matched against this revenue. We need to transfer from inventories the cost of the 6 widgets sold.
60 Asset Reduces Inventories will be reduced by 6 units at 3,000 = 18,000 So Credit Inventories by $18,000
Inventories We bought 20 widgets We have now sold 6 widgets How many do we have left in inventories? Yes 16. And what is therefore the value of the inventories. Yes 16 * £3000 = £48,000
62 Expense This is an expense, it will represent a movement in the profit or loss which belongs to the shareholders. As it is an expense, it will be a debit to the Cost of Sales Account. So Debit Cost of Sales Account with 18,000
63 Cost of Goods SoldInventories Cost of 6 Widgets 18,000 18,000 Widgets Sold
64 Further Analysis of Example 5 transaction: Cost of Sales is increasing Inventories are reducing CREDITDEBIT REF DESCRIPTIONDATE The Double Entry Junx Cost of Goods Sold18,000 Inventories of Widgets18,000
65 Do the books Balance? YES they DO
66 Finally – Basic Example 6 The company receives the telephone bill for the last 3 months for 1,000. It has received…. Not actually paid it!
67 This is an Expense This represents a Debit entry to the expense account. The company has incurred telephone expense of 1,000. This reduces the profits that the shareholders get. So Debit (DR) Telephone Account with 1,000
68 Liability Increases This represents an increase in the liability accounts as the telephone company is owed 1,000. So Credit (CR) the Liability (Accounts Payable Account) by 1,000.

74 Objective 5 Prepare and use a trial balance
75 Trial Balance List of all accounts with their balances
76 See Page 26
77 Incomes & Expenditures We have stated that as profits and losses are the property of the shareholders. Then in the Balance Sheet, Incomes & Expenditures are shown in the Equity Account. So the total of all the Income and Expenditure accounts are shown in the Balance Sheet as Equity.
78 Revenue = Equity Account This represents an increase in the Equity account which is a Credit entry, as this creates profits which belongs to the shareholders. So as the company has generated incomes of 25,000, we need to increase the Equity account by that sum. So Credit (CR) the Equity by 25,000.
79 Locating Trial Balance Errors What if it doesnt balance? Is the addition correct? Are all accounts listed? Are the balances listed correctly?
80 Locating Trial Balance Errors Divide the difference by two Is there a debit/credit balance for this amount posted in the wrong column? Divide the difference by 9. If evenly divisible, the error may be a slide or transposition error
81 The bank reconciliation... A critical control activity for cash.
