Do you know that there are only about 10 individual basic accounting transactions? In this section we're going to cover each of these types.

But before I get into specific examples of each one, let's make sure we understand what we're dealing with.

So, what is a transaction?

A transaction can be defined as an exchange of goods or services between two parties.

Each transaction represents some sort of change to one's assets, liabilities or owner's equity.

And so as to keep accurate records of our business and its financial position, each transaction needs to be recorded by the bookkeeper or accountant.

We will go through each type of transaction - starting with the simplest - until we understand each type.

The best way to do this - just as before - is to simply go through the lessons in order. You can, of course, skip to specific sections if you really want to. But the best way is to go through each lesson step-by-step and carry on through.
