Do you know your Debits from your Credits?

We do!

Double entry bookkeeping is the backbone of any accounting system - no matter how large, no matter how small.

A good grounding in double entry principles is of great value, whatever the challenge - whether its trying to fix a problem in a vast corporate ERP system at work, or  keeping the books of a micro-entity on a spreadsheet at home - these principles will always hold true.

To us a good grounding means a solid, practical understanding - not just knowing what to do but WHY you're doing it.

Double entry accounting is not difficult. If you can understand what you are trying to achieve, you can usually work out the entries to post.

That's our goal here at the alternative accountant - practical understanding.

So in each of our Accounting Lessons below we not only try and explain the background to each concept but also show the wider and full double entry visually in all its beautifully-balancing beancounting glory!
