General Ledger Accounting Services


Professional general ledger accounting services will save you time, money and unnecessary headaches

The general ledger is one of the most basic tools in the financial arsenal of any business and is the foundational storage area for both financial and non-financial data. A company’s general ledger contains every necessary account to which transactions are recorded to satisfy the basic accounting equation (Assets = Liabilities + Owners Equity), revenues and expenses. It acts like a central bank of sorts for the storage of business accounting information and is where posting to main and sub-accounts occurs.

General Ledger Accounts

General ledger accounting uses a framework listing various account types. This structure,  called a chart of accounts, assists in the preparation of trial balances. Trial balances allow for the preliminary financial reporting of debit and credit activities in the general ledger, thus ensuring they remain in equitable balance. These general ledger accounts include asset and liability accounts, equity accounts, revenue (income) and expense accounts, and contra accounts (these accounts offset negative balance accounts) used for clarification of certain activities.

These may also include financial reporting, the recording and analysis of financial data, timely preparation of financial statements and reports and assistance with their interpretation.

Because proper general ledger accounting services are highly demanding and challenging, most business owners simply do not have the time or experience level to adequately work with the numbers to the extent necessary in order to provide an accurate financial picture of their business operations.
