Expense Entry in Text Books

Profit and loss A/c – Dr.

Expense Entry in Practical Life

We follow the concept of double entry

1.First entry -we book expense

Expense A/c- Dr.

To Party A/c

( Being Expense booked or Bill/ Invoice is received)

2. Second entry when payment is made

Party A/c- Dr.

To Bank/ Cash A/c

( Being payment made to party)

In practical life the transfer entry is not done it is automatically done by software like Tally.
