What are objectives of accounting equation?

Mohammed Mudassir from India
Recently, I have talked with Mohammad Mudassir. He is doing MBA second year from Rajasthan University. He is not graduated in commerce. Like him, there are lots of Indian students who are doing MBA but who completed only simple B.A. So, it is sure, all such student will face basic accounting because some part of MBA is of basic accounting.


Mohammed Mudassir has informed me on the phone that he was also searching the meaning of accounting equation on google because he was confusing to this term. So, he found me site and wrote this question for solution.

Today, I am writing the objectives of accounting equation for the students like Mohammed Mudassir.

1. Base of Whole Accounting Record

Whole accounting record is done on the basis of accounting equation. When you journal entry or ledger accounts, all are done on the basis of accounting rules. These accounting rules are made on the basis of accounting equation. Accounting equation is total assets = capital + total outstanding liabilities. In any journal entry, we have to show this accounting equation. For example, Ram started business with Rs. 5000. In its journal entry

Cash account Dr 5000

Capital account Cr. 5000

asset side cash is showing as Rs. 5000 and other side capital is showing Rs.5000 if we accounting equation from this journal entry.

2. Base of Balance Sheet

Balance sheet is the list of assets and liabilities of organisation. Total of balance sheet will always equal because every asset is made from liability. So, total assets will balance with total liabilities. Accounting equation's principle is the base of this. From accounting equation examples, you can see that every transaction can make equal to the both side of accounting equation.

3. To Understand the Grow of Accounting Equation
