Chart of Accounts

An account is a financial record of any expense , susceptibility, asset, tax revenue and equity. The chart of accounts is a record of all financial statements used in the general ledger of a professional organization (Sumariwalla & Levis, 2000). An accounting software aggregates data into an entity’s account.
In a customer interview process, it is important to find out how customers manage their accounting documents, file them and how they can quickly retrieve them, how they can recover all of their paid invoices at the end of a specified financial period and how they can pile all of their assets into different types of expenses and income. A well-kept chart of accounts can be assistive in keeping the financial condition of the customer’s company in a good position.
A chart of accounts in organized into assets, financial gain (income), liabilities and expenses. The asset section will include everything you manage that has value. Liabilities will contain things like loans, mortgages, payroll and income taxes, personal bills and promissory notes (Arndt, 1990). Income is the money received while expenses are money spent on doing something. It is important to customize your chart of accounts to adapt it more precisely to your business so as to address the special needs according to your preferences. In a service business, an owner equity account should be included in the chart of accounts for each member of the business firm.
The primary distinction between a retail business and a service business is that the retail business has to stock inventory. The inventory is part of the expense (the price of goods cleared). Others may see it as asset inventory. In a retail business, different accounts in the chart of accounts should be carried out for direct pricing expenses referred to as overhead tracking.

...Define the accounting equation & discuss how it is related to the four financial statements. Required to show the inter-relationships between four financial statements and with the aid of examples, how the transactions impact the accounting equation. The accounting equation consists of three company`s accounts including assets, liabilities and owner`s equity. The accounting equation can be summarized as : Assets = Liabilities + Owner`s Equity Based on the equation, assets are the total of liabilities and owner`s equity. Assets are a company’s resources—things the company owns. Examples of assets include cash, accounts receivable, inventory, prepaid insurance, investments, land, buildings, equipment, and goodwill. Liabilities are the amounts of the company owes. Examples of liabilities include notes or loans payable, accounts payable, salaries and wages payable, and interest payable. Owner’s equity or stockholders’ equity is the amount left over after liabilities are deducted from assets: Assets – Liabilities = Owner’s Equity. Owner's Equity is applicable when the company is a sole proprietorship. If the company is a corporation, the words Stockholders' Equity is used. Owner’s or stockholders’ equity also reports the amounts invested into the company by the owners plus the cumulative net income of the company that has not been withdrawn or distributed to the owners. The accounting balance will balance if the records are accurate. The balance is...

... to premiums.) Premium taxes to premiums written. (This ratio is a measure of statutory premium tax expense to premiums written. In the absence of a significant shift in the mix of business or in premium tax rates or taxability, this ratio should be quite stable from period to period.) Unearned premium reserve to in-force premiums and unearned premium reserve to written premiums. (These ratios are measures of the unexpired portion of premiums to total premium volume.) Four other ratios relate to underwriting and, more specifically, to premiums receivable or agents’ balances: Agents’ or premium balances charged off to premiums written; Agents’ or premium balances charged off to premiums earned; Premium or agent receivables to in-force premiums; and Aging of premium or agent receivables. (These ratios will take on varying significance in different situations. Often, premium collection problems and bad debts are minimal because premiums are collected in advance of providing the policy coverage. However, if an insured has paid the premium to an agent of the company, the company must provide coverage even if the agent does not transmit premiums to the company. Therefore, the reliability of agents is of concern.)

... ANSWERS TO ACCTG 321 QUESTIONS 1. Cash normally consists of coins and currency on hand, bank deposits, and various kinds of orders for cash such as bank checks, money orders, travelers’ checks, demand bills of exchange, bank drafts, and cashiers’ checks. Balances on deposit in banks which are subject to immediate withdrawal are properly included in cash. Money market funds that provide checking account privileges may be classified as cash. There is some question as to whether deposits not subject to immediate withdrawal are properly included in cash or whether they should be set out separately. Savings accounts, time certificates of deposit, and time deposits fall in this latter category. Unless restrictions on these kinds of deposits are such that they cannot be converted (withdrawn) within one year or the operating cycle of the entity, whichever is longer, they are properly classified as current assets. At the same time, they may well be presented separately from other cash and the restrictions as to convertibility reported. 2. (A) Cash (h) Investments, possibly other assets. (b) Trading securities.

... delivery * Purchase order number * The signature of the person receiving the goods * The catalogue number and quantity Once the goods are provided or the services covered, the Invoice is sent by the seller to the buyer in order to demand the full or partial payment and is due to pay usually within 30 days to avoid accrual of interest and/or late payment fees.  Therefore, we identify the invoice as the bill to the customer, after a sale has been ordered. Also, it can be sent to the buyer prior to delivery of the goods or product. It is considered a request for formal payment and in some cases, the sales invoice might indicate the terms of payment. From the buyer point of view, the sales invoice represents a receipt for their expenditure. If the amount of the items or services purchased hasn’t been paid yet, or has been paid partially. The seller sends the Credit note. This document therefore, states the certain amount has been credited from the buyer’s account. On other hand, a credit note is issued in various situations to correct a mistake, such as when an invoice amount is overstated, correct discount rate is not applied, goods spoil within guaranty period, or they do not meet the buyer's specifications and are returned. If you return goods to a supplier or if a customer returns goods to you for a full or partial credit, a credit note must be issued so that you or your customer can process this and adjust your accounts accordingly.
