Understand what your bookkeeper is talking about?
To be able to relate and discuss your finance with your bookkeeper, these accounting terms will help you understand. They are the simple terms used to describe all the tasks done by your bookkeeper to arrive to a financial statement.
The accrual method of accounting accounts for income and expenses in the 12-month period earned or incurred, which is not necessarily when it is received or paid.
The cash method of accounting accounts for income and expenses when actually received or paid.
Accounting is a general term that refers to the overall process of tracking your business's income and expenses, and then using these numbers in various calculations and formulas to answer specific questions about the financial and tax status of the business.
Bookkeeping refers to the task of recording the amount, date, and source of all business revenues and expenses. Bookkeeping is essentially the starting point of the accounting process. Only with accurate bookkeeping numbers can meaningful accounting be done.
An invoice is a written record of a transaction, often submitted to a customer or client when requesting payment. Invoices are sometimes called bills or statements, though the latter term has a separate meaning, as explained just below.
A statement is a formal written summary of outstanding (unpaid) invoices. Unlike an invoice, a statement is not generally used as a formal request for payment, but is more of a reminder to a customer or client that payment is due.
A receipt is a written record of a transaction. A buyer receives a receipt to show that he paid for an item. The seller keeps a copy of the receipt to show she received payment for the item. Receipts are sometimes called sales slips.
A ledger is a physical collection of related financial information, such as revenues, expenditures, accounts receivable, and accounts payable. Ledgers used to be kept in books pre-printed with lined ledger paper -- which explains why a business's financial info is often referred to as the "books" -- but are now commonly kept in computer files that can be printed out.
An account is a collection of financial information grouped according to customer or purpose. For example, if you have a regular customer, the collection of information regarding that customer's purchases, payments, and debts would be called his or her "account." A written record of an account is called a statement.
A balance sheet is a statement listing a business's assets, liabilities, and net worth, or equity (the difference between the value of the assets and the liabilities).
Accounts payable are amounts that your business owes. For example, unpaid utility bills and purchases your business made on credit would be included in your accounts payable.
Accounts receivable are amounts owed to your business that you expect to receive. Accounts receivable includes sales your business made on credit.
Bad debt is money owed for a business debt that cannot be collected; it can be deducted as an operating expense.
Net income is gross income less expenses; it represents a business's profit for a given year.
