Summary

An Overview of Accounting: Transactions, Financing, Purchasing, Processing, Bookkeeping, and Financial Statements

  • Accounting is about identifying and recording business transactions to assist in managing and planning a business.
  • A transaction is any event that is a change in a company's business which is measurable in terms of money and implies a change in the financial position.
  • Transactions can be cash, credit, barter, or paper, and can be internal or external.
  • Business transactions involve two parties, are measurable in terms of money, result in a transfer of goods or services, and change the financial position of the company.
  • Financing is the operation of gathering operating resources, either from internal sources (equity) or external sources (debt).
  • Purchasing is the operation of acquiring productive factors that will be used in the processing phase of the business cycle.
  • Processing is the operation through which the company transforms its own resources and purchased operating means into finished products/services to be sold to market.
  • Selling the finished products or services results in the realization of revenues and the recognition of cash in and/or account receivables.
  • Bookkeeping is the routine recording of business transactions using the double entry bookkeeping model.
  • Every business transaction results in a double change in the financial position of the business, reflected in changes to assets, liabilities, owner's equity, expenses, or revenues.
  • The balance of these accounts is reported in the Balance Sheet Statement, which shows the financial position of a company at a specific point in time.
  • The Income Statement summarizes the results of operating for a period of time, showing realized revenues and sustained expenses, and the resulting performance of the company during that period.
