Waec account 2016


General journal is the accounting version of our
personal journals. It doesn't record everything that
happens to the business, of course, but it does record
every financial transaction that takes place (sometimes
alone, sometimes as a group of similar transactions). Like
our personal journal entries, it notes the date, the
accounts involved, and the amounts of money, as well as
providing a brief description of what happened

Cost = Estimated residual value/number of years of expected use
Advantage Of Straight Line:
i. it is simple to calculate
ii. It is time oriented

i. Assumption of equal or constant revenue per year is unrealistic
ii. Might lead to a misleading picture of the financial statement

Advantage Of Reducing Balance:
It gives a fairly even charge against revenue beach year.
ii. Depreciation is more scientifically provided for
