How to Prepare Journal Entries with Simple Explanation

To prepare the journal entries with its simple explanation, you should know what is journal. Journal is the book which we keep the records of transactions on daily basis and date-wise on the basis of debit and credit rules. This is the first book of book keeping and then we make second book that is called ledger where we keep ledger accounts. Then we make the trial balance and then we make the final accounts. In final accounts, we keep trading account and profit and loss account and balance sheet. It is simple accounting process. 

First learn the format of journal 

In this, first column comes Date, then particular about accounts which will be debit and credit in second column, then we will write the L.F. third column and then we will write the Debit amount and then Write Credit Amount 4th and 5th column. When we prepare the journal entries. It will be on the basis of some evidence or proof. 

Date ↓ particular              ↓ L.F. ↓ Dr. Amount ↓ Cr. Amount ↓

For preparing journal entries, you must know the classification of accounts and rules of debit and credit. 

So, learn these classification of accounts

1. Personal Accounts

In the personal account, two rules will apply. 

Debit : who is receiver of Asset, we have to know

Credit : Who is giver of asset, we have to know

2. Impersonal Accounts  

These are also two types of impersonal accounts. One is real account and second is of nominal account. 

Real accounts are also two types.

Tangible assets real account and intangible assets real account. So, in this, there are two rules

Debit : What asset comes in the business. We have to know

Credit : What assets goes from business. We have to know

Nominal accounts are also real account. We have to understand for preparing journal entries. 

Expenses and losses account and income and gains account

Debit : All the expenses and losses in the business

Credit : All the incomes and gains in the business.
