Q.2. Define ledger. Explain the rules regarding posting of transaction into ledger.
Ans. Ledger: As we know, all transactions are first recorded in the journal. These transactions are related to particular person, assets, expense or income and are recorded at different places in the journal as they occur on different dates. Hence, journal fails to bring all the transactions in one place together. To get the information, classification of the recorded transaction in journal is done through the ledger.
Thus ledger is a collection of requisite information concerning a particular account and presenting them under one head is known as ledger posting.
‘An account is a ledger record in a summarised form of all the transactions that have taken place with the particular person or things specified’.
–Carter ‘The book which contains a classified and permanent record of all the transactions of a business is called the ledger’.
Each ledger A/c is divided into two equal parts by two lines drawn closely in the centre. The left hand side is called Dr. (Debit) side and right hand side is called Cr. (Credit) side. The ledger has following columns:
1. Date: The date of the transaction is recorded in this column.
2. Particulars: Each transaction affects two accounts. The name of the other account which is affected by the transaction is recorded in this column.
3. Journal Folio (J.F.): The page number of the journal or subsidiary book from which the entry has been transferred is recorded in this column.
4. Amount: The amount pertaining to this A/c is written in this column. Rules of Posting
The record of transaction in the journal is called entry while the process of transferring an entry from the journal into ledger is called posting. The following rules should be considered:
1. Separate A/cs should be opened in the ledger for posting of transactions relating to different – accounts recorded in the journal, e.g. Deepak’s A/C, Sales A/C, Salary A/C, etc.
2. All transactions relating to particular A/c should be posted at one place. In other words, an account is opened only once in the ledger.
3. In a particular column, the word ‘to’ is used with the A/cs which appear on the debit side of the ledger A/c while the word ‘by’ is used with accounts which appear on the credit side of the ledger A/cs.
4. The concerned account which has been debited in the journal should also be debited in the ledger but in particulars column, a reference should be made of the other account which has
been credited in the journal with concerned account.
5. The concerned amount which has been credited in the journal should also be credited in the ledger but in the particulars column, a reference should be made of the other account which has been credited in the journal with concerned account.
6. Same amount will be written in debit and credit column of amount from journal.
