This course will advise you on how the double-entry method helps accountants in reducing errors. The accounting period differs for different business levels.

We will explore all these significant accounts and where you record all these transactions as you work through this course. A double-entry system also serves to disclose information about the fiscal situation of a company. This knowledge is essential when making critical decisions regarding the future of a business.
