Specimen of Ledger account This is the specimen of a ledger account. J.F. here represents the journal folio. A Ledger account is an account that consists of all the business transactions that take place during the current financial year. For Example, cash, bank, machinery, A/c receivable account, etc. After the financial data is recorded in the Journal. It is then classified according to the nature of accounts viz. Asset, liability, expenses, revenue, and capital to be posted in the ledger account. With this head, the identification as to whether the opening balance will come under the debit side or the credit side is done. The table below would help to understand the concept of opening balance in the ledger. For further clarification of the concept let me give you a practical example. Suppose, a manufacturing firm Amul purchased machinery for, say, Rs 2,50,000. The installation charges were Rs 25,000 and the opening balance of machinery during the year was Rs 5,00,000. So as the machinery account comes under the category assets, its opening balance would come under the debit side of the ledger account. And as purchase and installation charges mean expenses for the firm, they would also come under the debit side of the account. And in case of any sale of a part of the machinery, it would be posted on the credit side of the account as the sales would generate revenue for the firm. 0 Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Related Questions What comes in debit side of Realisation account?
