Branches of Accounting
- Stewardship Accounting: In the earlier days, rich people used to appoint, ”Stewards” to manage their property. The accounting practices used by them to present their financial matters is called Stewardship Accounting.
- Financial Accounting: Recording Financial transactions in a systematic manner in the books of accounts, summarizing in the form of Trial Balance and presenting the results thereof is called Financial accounting. Previously Single Entry concept was prevalent in which only one aspect of the transaction was recorded. Later on, the Double Entry concept was introduced in which two aspects of each transaction are recorded.

BASIC ACCOUNTING PROCEDURE from the AFM Syllabus 2024
Double Entry System
Double-entry bookkeeping means that each debit in an account will have a matching credit to another account. For proper recording of the transaction, the knowledge of the rules of ‘Debit’ and ‘Credit’ is essential. When to debit and when to credit depends upon the nature of the transaction.
In order to keep a full record of transactions, the business must keep:
i) The account of each person or firm with whom it deals;
ii) The account of each property in the business; and
iii) The account of each head of expense or income.
What are the Three Types of Accounts?
Real, Personal and Nominal Accounts
There are mainly three types of accounts in accounting: Real, Personal and Nominal accounts, personal accounts are classified into three subcategories: Artificial, Natural, and Representative.
If you fail to identify an account correctly as either a real, personal or nominal account, in most cases, you will get end up recording incorrect journal entries.
1. Real Accounts
All assets of a firm, which are tangible or intangible, fall under the category of “Real Accounts“.
Tangible real accounts are related to things that can be touched and felt physically. A few examples of tangible real accounts are building, machinery, stock, land, etc.
Intangible real accounts are related to things that can’t be touched and felt physically. A few examples of such real accounts are goodwill, patents, trademarks, etc.
The golden rule for real accounts
|Debit what comes in
|Credit what goes out
The transaction below shows the interaction of two different real accounts: one is furniture and the other is cash, both of them are assets of the company and hence classified as real accounts.
- Purchased furniture for 10,000 in cash
|Real A/C – Dr. what comes in
|To Cash A/C
|Real A/C – Cr. What goes out
*Amount will be 10,000 in both debit and credit.

2. Personal Accounts
These accounts are related to individuals, firms, companies, etc. A few examples of personal accounts include debtors, creditors, banks, outstanding/prepaid accounts, accounts of credit customers, accounts of goods suppliers, capital, drawings, etc.
Natural personal accounts: This type of personal account is the simplest to understand out of all and includes all of God’s creations who have the ability to deal, with who, in most cases, are people. E.g. Kumar’s A/C, Adam’s A/C, etc.
Artificial personal accounts: Personal accounts which are created artificially by law, such as corporate bodies and institutions, are called Artificial personal accounts. E.g. Pvt Ltd companies, LLCs, LLPs, clubs, schools, etc.
Representative personal accounts: Accounts that represent a certain person or a group directly or indirectly. E.g. Let’s say that wages are paid in advance to an employee – a wage prepaid account will be opened in the books of accounts. This wages prepaid account is a representative personal account indirectly linked to the person.
There are four types of Representative Personal Accounts:
· Pre-paid Expenses
· Outstanding Expenses
· Accrued Income and
· Income Received in Advance
The golden rule for personal accounts
|Debit the receiver
|Credit the giver

The transaction below demonstrates the interaction between two different personal accounts, one of which is a private limited company and the other one is a bank.
- Paid Unreal Pvt Ltd. 24,000 by check
|Unreal Pvt Ltd. A/C
|Artificial Personal – Dr. the receiver
|To Bank A/C
|Artificial Personal – Cr. the giver
*Amount will be 24,000 in both debit and credit.
3. Nominal Accounts
Accounts that are related to expenses, losses, incomes or gains are called Nominal accounts. The dictionary meaning of the word “nominal” is “existing in name only” and the meaning remains absolutely true in the accounting sense too, because nominal accounts do not really exist in physical form, but behind every nominal account, money is involved. E.g. Purchase A/C, Salary A/C, Sales A/C, Commission received A/C, etc.
The final result of all nominal accounts is either profit or loss which is then transferred to the capital account.
The golden rule for nominal accounts
|Debit all expenses & losses
|Credit all incomes & gains
The following example shows a transaction where a nominal account deals with a real a/c.
- Purchased good for 15,000 in cash
|Nominal A/C – Dr. all expenses
|To Cash A/C
|Real A/C – Cr. What goes out
The amount will be 15,000 in both debit and credit.
