A robust system of recording transactions is the means by which we can ensure that all financial data is captured and that the final accounts can be relied upon and fully reflect all that has happened in any organisation. Double entry bookkeeping is a widely used system of recording transactions and provides the basis for many IT based accounting systems.

This Accounting Fundamentals course is designed for those who need a working knowledge of the principles of this system. The course will examine in detail the whole bookkeeping process from the beginning of an organisation through to the preparation of a trial balance and will consider journals and corrections. It will also consider how the bookkeeping process sits within an accrual accounting or cash reporting framework.
