5 Posting to the ledger Trace diagram on page 57. Personnel Small Company – small number of people recording accountsLarge Company – greater amount of people recording accounts. Separation of departments, segregation of duties to prevent fraud. In other words the person sending out the sales invoices will not be receiving the cheque from the client. The individual could invoice the client and lodge cheque into their own account.

7 Payables ledger controller The petty cash will be managed by the payables ledger controller and must be authorised by the accountant.The payables ledger controller will prepare cheques for payment after checking that:There is a purchase order for the goodsThe correct goods were received (GRN)They were received in good condition (any faults should be detailed on Delivery note)The invoice is correct – correct quantities, price, vat calculation.
8 Main Books of Prime Entry The main books of prime entry are:Sales day bookPurchase day bookJournalCash bookPetty cash book
10 Sales day bookThe sales day book is a list of all invoices sent out to customers each day.The sales ledger reference is the reference of the page that the customer is on in the sales ledger. In a computerised accounting system this will be an account name, e.g. University of Limerick (as a customer) might have an account called UL02.There may be further analysis columns in the sales day book for difference types of sales. For example, in a car sales showroom might have sales of private vehicles and sales of commercial vehicles under different columns.
11 Sales Returns Day BookWhen customers return goods due to faults etc, the returns are recorded in the sales returns day book.The sales returns book looks mush the same as the sales book
12 Purchases Day BookEntered into the system once the invoice comes from supplierA debit to the income statement (purchases) and the credit to the payables ledger and payables ledger control account.A computerised system will update all accountsWhen the supplier statement arrives the supplier account balance can be checked against it.The payables ledger control account must be reconciled to the payables ledger.
13 Purchases Returns day book The purchase returns day book is kept to record credit notes received in respect of goods which the business sends back to its suppliers. The business might expect a credit note from the supplier. In the mean time it might issue a debit note to the supplier, indicating the amount by which the business expects its total debt to the supplier to be reduced.See extract from purchase returns day book Pg 59.
14 Cash BookThe cash book is a book of prime entry, used to keep a cumulative record of money received and money paid out by the business via its bank account.Could be money received on the premises such as cash sales and cash or cheques received from debtors. Also recorded in the cash book will be amounts going through the bank which you may not know about until you receive the bank statement. These will be items such as bank transfers, bank charges or interest.The cash book may be recorded in a book on a page divided in two. On the left side (debit ) the income will be recorded and on the right side (credit) the payments will be recorded.
17 Recording Receipts Batching Transactions When a business receives a large number of receipts, it is often a good idea to split them up into manageable batches of transactions, and to process each batch.Checking Receipts from credit customers against the invoiceWhen money is received from a credit customer, the receipt should be matched with the invoice that the customer is paying. Sometimes, a customer might pay several invoices at the same time.
18 Cash Book The details are entered into the cash book as follows: Date – this is the date the money is receivedReference - this might be the name of the customer or might say cash or credit saleTotal – This will be the total amount receivedDebtors – If the receipt is a receipt from a credit customer then the total amount should be entered in to the debtors column. The amount will not be analysed out to sales and VAT as this has been done already when the sale was made. It was recorded already in the sales book and should not be recorded again in the cash book.
19 Cash BookCash Sales – If the receipt is for cash sales, the total amount received is shown in the Total column. The cash sales column is used to record the amount of the sales excluding VAT.VAT – This column is used to record any VAT received for anything except credit sales invoices. If it is a cash sale the total will go to the total column the vat amount will go to the vat column and the net amount in the cash sale column.The reason for recording VAT on cash sales here as this is the first time the VAT on the sale is recorded.Other - This might be interest on deposit account or bank loanSettlement Discount – This is a memorandum record of the discount allowed for early payment. This is totalled and posted to the discount allowed account in the ledger.
20 Example The following amounts were received on 19 October 2006 Payment of invoice number 69 by BL Lorries (account number S239), total €4,700Payment of invoice number 70 by MA Meters (account number S314), total €2,820. A settlement discount of €40 was taken by this customer.Payment of invoice number 78 by Tanktop Limted (account number A205), total €3,100.A cash sale of €1,175 including VAT at 17.5%Task: Write up the cash receipts book and total each of the columns.
22 Balancing the Cash Book If at the beginning of the day there was a cash balance of €900 (debit balance), during the day there were receipts of €2,490 and payments of €2,610 what is the balance at the end of the day?Opening balance 900Receipts 2,4903,390Payments (2,610)Closing BalanceThe balance c/d at the end of the day is €780 and the balance b/f to the following day is €780. see pg 62.
23 Discounts, Rebates and allowanes Trade Discounts- Bulk buyingCash Discounts – Prompt paymentAccounting for trade discountA trade discount is a reduction in the amount of money demanded from a customer.A cash discount is an optional reduction in the amount payable by a customer.The decision to take advantage of a cash discount is a financing decision.

25 Bank StatementsThe banks statements will be received on a regular basis. The cash book should be reconciled to the bank statement to ensure no monies have gone missing.
27 Petty Cash BookThe petty cash book is the book of prime entry which keeps a cumulative record of the small amounts of cash received into and paid out of the cash float.The cash is used for small purchases such as milk and biscuits, taxi or bus fares.The amount held in cash day one will be the float. At any one time the amount of receipts and cash remaining should total to the original float. The float will be topped up from time to time and the amount it will be topped up by will equal the amount of receipts in the petty cash box. This system is called the imprest system.
