Introduction Furniture is treated as a fixed asset of an enterprise unless it deals in the manufacturing or the trade of furniture. As stock in trade, it will be treated as current assets. In both cases, they are real accounts. Hence, the golden rule of accounting will be the same. But, when it comes to journal entries, Furniture A/c will appear only when it is treated as a fixed asset. No journal entries are passed in the stock-in-trade account except for some balance transferring entries.
