Ledger posting The process of entering all transactions from journal to ledger is called ledger posting. Each ledger account contains an individual asset, person, revenue, or expense. As we’re aware the journal records all the transactions of the business. Posting to the ledger account not only helps the proper maintenance of the ledger book but also helps in reflecting a permanent summary of all the journal accounts. In the end, all the accounts that are entered and operated in the ledger are closed, totaled, and balanced. Balancing the ledger means finding the difference between the debit and credit amounts of a particular account, it’s done on the day of closing of the accounting year. Sometimes journal entries are made and maintained monthly. Therefore, the balancing of the ledger’s date depends on the business’ closing date and the way a business maintains its books of accounts. Example Mr. Jack Sparrow decided to start a new clothing business. On 1st April 2021, He started the business with a total sum of $100,000 cash. He purchased furniture, including desks and shelves for $25,000. Mr. Sparrow then decided to start with women’s clothing and purchased a complete range of clothes from the wholesale market for $50,000. On the next day, he sold all the stock for $75,000. He also hired a worker for $5,000. We need to journalize these transactions and post them into the ledger account.
