1 Analyzing Transactions into Debit and Credit Parts Principles of Accounting I
2 Objectives By the end of the lesson, I will be able to: define accounting terms related to analyzing transactions into debit and credit parts.identify accounting practices related to analyzing transactions into debit and credit parts.use “T” accounts to analyze transactions showing which accounts are debited or credited for each transaction.verify the equality of debits and credits for each transaction.
3 What We KnowWe have learned how business transactions affect accounts in an accounting equation.Procedure is not practical in an actual accounting system.the number of accounts most businesses have would make the accounting equation cumbersome to usea separate record is commonly used for each account
4 Accounting TermsAccounting equation: shows relationship among assets, liabilities, and owner’s equityAsset: anything of value that is owned or controlledCapital: account used to summarize the owner’s equityChart of accounts: list of accounts used in a businessCredit: amount recorded on the right side of a T-accountDebit: amount recorded on the left side of a T-accountLiability: amount of money owed to the creditors of a businessNormal balance: side of the account that is increasedOwner’s equity: amount remaining after the value of all liabilities is subtracted from the value of all assetsT-account: accounting device used to analyze transactionsTransaction: business activity that changes assets, liabilities, or owner’s equity
5 The Accounting Equation Assets = Liabilities + Owner’s EquityThe accounting equation can be represented as a “T”:Always draw T accounts when analyzing transactions to see the debit and credit sides.
7 Location, location, location The normal balance side of an asset, liability, or capital account is based on the location of the account in the accounting equation
8 All about the sides….The sides of the T account also show increases and decreases in account balances
9 RulesTwo basic accounting rules regulate the increases and decreases of account balances:Account balances increase on the normal side of an accountAccount balances decrease on the opposite side of an account
10 Remember This… Asset accounts have normal debit balances increase on the debit sidedecrease on the credit sideLiability accounts have normal credit balancesincrease on the credit sidedecrease on the debit sideOwner’s equity account has a normal credit balanceincreases on the credit sidedecreases on the debit side
11 Let’s ReviewThe normal balance side of an asset, liability, or capital account is based on what?The sides of the T account show what?Assets account have normal __________ balances.Liability accounts have normal __________balances.Owner’s Equity accounts have normal __________balances.
12 Analyze This….Before a transaction is recorded in the records of a business, the information is analyzed to determine which accounts are changed and how.Each transaction changes the balances of at least two accounts and debits equal credits for each transaction.Four steps are used in analyzing a transaction:Determine what accounts will be affectedDetermine whether to increase or decrease the accountDetermine whether the increase/decrease needs to be a debit or a creditMake sure debits equal credits
13 Let’s Do This TogetherUsing the Graphic Organizer, we will analyze the following transactions:Maria Sanchez took $25,000 from personal savings and deposited that amount to open a business checking account in the name of Roadrunner Delivery Service.Maria Sanchez transferred two telephones valued at $200 each from her home to the business.Roadrunner bought a used truck on account from North Shore Auto for $12,000.Roadrunner sold one telephone to Green Company for $200 on account.
14 On Your Own….Using Microsoft Excel, you will create T accounts and basic formulas to analyze the transactions on your John Jones Computing handout.
