About This Class

Like journal is subdivided into subsidiary books, the larger enterprises divide their ledger into  several ledgers to accommodate large number of accounts. A small business can do with only one ledger. However, in case of big business, the number of personal accounts may be quite large and therefore, it may not be convenient to keep all the accounts in one ledger. Moreover, in case of non-agreement of trial balance, it is a time consuming and laborious task to locate the difference in accounts if transactions are recorded in one ledger. in order to reduce the trouble to a minimum and time involved in locating the errors, the system of self balancing has been evolved.

Under the self balancing system, posting of transactions is not done in one ledger but the accounts are opened in more than one ledger. Under this system, the ledger is subdivided into the following three ledgers:

  1. Debtors or Sales Ledger
  2. Creditors or Purchase Ledger and
  3. General or Impersonal or Nominal Ledger.

In this course , you will learn more about self balancing ledger.
