accounting period, a businessman can understand that what are the assets and liabilities of the business. There are different steps involved in accounting. Indentifying business transaction is the first step of accounting. These transactions are recorded in the subsidiary books and journal proper. With the help of these books we prepare ledger accounts.

Finally, position statement (balance sheet) is prepared which reflects the true position of assets and liabilities of the business. In this way prime object of the business accounting is to measure and report the profitability and financial status of the business.

Meaning of Accounting

Accounting is the process of identifying, measuring, recording and communicating the required information relating to the economic events of an organisation to the interested users of such information. Accounting plays important role in providing quantitative information, primarily financial in nature, about economic entities, that is intended to be useful in making economic decisions.

Definition of Accounting

“Accounting is the process of identifying, measuring and communicating economic information to permit informed judgments and decisions by users of the information.”— (Year 1966) American Accounting Association (AAA)

“Accounting is a service activity. Its function is to provide quantitative information, primarily financial in nature, about economic entities that is intended to be useful in making economic decisions.” — (Year 1970) Accounting Principles Board of AICPA (U.S.A)

Functions of Accounting

  • Identification : The first step in accounting is to determine what to record, i.e., to idenfity the financial events which are to be recorded in the books of accounts. It involves observing all business activities and selecting those events or transactions which can be considered as financial transactions.
  • Measurement : In Accounting we record only those transactions which can be measured in terms of money or which are of financial nature. If a transactions or event cannot be measured in monetary terms, it is not considered for recording in financial accounts. There are few events directly or indirectly make affect on the working of a business firm but cannot be recorded in the books of accounts because they cannot be measured in terms of money. For example : appointment of a new managing director, signing of contracts, strikes, death of an employee etc are not shown in the books of accounts.
  • Recording : A transaction will be recorded in the books of accounts only if it is considered as an economic event and can be measured in terms of money. Once the economic events are identified and measured in financial terms, these are recorded in books of account in monetary terms and in a chronological order. Recording should be done in a systematic manner so that the information can be made available when required.
  • Classifying : Once the financial transactions are recorded in journal or subsidiary books, all the financial transactions are classified by grouping the transactions of one nature at one place in a separate account. This is known as preparation of Ledger.
  • Summarising : It is concerned with presentation of data and it begins with balance of ledger accounts and the preparation of trial balance with the help of such balances. Trial balance is required to prepare the financial statements i.e. Trading Account, Profit & Loss Account and Balance Sheet.
  • Communication : The main purpose of accounting is to communicate the financial information the users who analyse them as per their individual requirements. Providing financial information to its users is a regular process.

SYSTEM OF RECORDING

  • Single entry system : This system ignores the two fold aspect of each transaction as done in double entry system. In this only cash and personal accounts are maintained.
  • Double entry system : This is that system of book–keeping under which every business transaction is recorded at two places. This system is based on dual concept, which states, “For every debit there is a credit”.

ADVANTAGES OF DOUBLE ENTRY SYSTEM OF ACCOUNTING:

  • It helps to keep a complete and systematic record of all business transactions ;
  • Since both the aspects of a transaction are recorded under this system, it facilitates a check on the arithmetical accuracy of the accounting books ;
  • It reveals the results of business activities. By preparing trading and profit and loss account, profit earned or loss suffered by the business is ascertained ;
  • By preparing position statement (Balance sheet), the financial position of the business is correctly estimated.

DISADVANTAGES OF DOUBLE ENTRY SYSTEM :

  • This system fails to ascertain actual profits if there are errors of principle in the records;
  • A mistake committed at the time of journalizing or an omission of a transaction from journalising cannot be disclosed under this system ;
  • There is possibility of fraud and misappropriations in the system.
