Welcome to Journal Accounting.

An Accounting Trainee or Bookkeeper should have a good understanding of accounting journal entries for non-regular accounting transactions. The Accounting examiner will expect you to provide examples of typical journal accounting entries.

In particular you will be required to state the accounting journal entries for:
– the start of a new business
– the writing off bad debts
– the payroll transactions
