General Ledger

ledger

the ACCOUNTING records that keep a note of a firm's day-to-day financial transactions with outside parties. For example, the purchases or CREDITORS ledger would show the value of raw materials or services purchased from each supplier, payments made to suppliers for these, and any amounts still owing to suppliers. Similarly, the sales or DEBTORS ledger would show the value of goods or services sold to each customer, amounts they have paid for these, and any amounts still owed by customers. In former times such ledger accounts took the form of bound ledgers in which entries were recorded by hand; nowadays they are generally kept as computer records. Fig. 50 shows the main ledger accounts. See DOUBLE-ENTRY ACCOUNTS.
