General Ledger Accounts record the transactions that define value of the business. Every transaction in the business is recorded against an Account, either as a Debit or Credit. In double entry book keeping a particular operation within a business will generate transactions that add up to zero, i.e. Sum Debits – Sum Credits = 0. For example is you buy an asset for $10,000 you will have a debit of $10,000 on your bank account and a credit of $10,000 on your asset account.

Each Account is assigned to an Account Group (see Account Groups). This is used in reporting, for example the Trial Balance will list Accounts by Group. Also when you select an Account anywhere in software the list will be in Group/Account sequence.
