Chart of Accounts

Overview

Use the chart of accounts in Splendid Accounts to record and classify your transactions, and generate reports.

The chart of accounts gives a high-level overview of the work your business does by listing all the accounts involved in your company’s day-to-day operations.

A set of accounts is used by a company or organization to define and record the money (or the equivalent) that is spent or received in your business.

They’re used to organize all transactions and to separate expenditures, revenue, assets, and liabilities so the company can have a clear understanding of the financial health of the entity.

They’re not for small business owners to create an account for every item they enter (into their books or accounting software).

A set of accounts such as Splendid Account’s chart of accounts let you group transactions you enter. It’s a filing system for all your transactions within the business.

You can name and number your accounts of which they’re usually called account number/accounts or general ledger (GL) codes.

Small businesses don’t all have the same chart of accounts. The accounts you include in the chart of accounts depends on the type of business you run. For example, if you have a service business, you won’t have an inventory account. If you have a business that sells products, you will need an inventory account.
