 Types of Bookkeeping

Single Entry

Single entry bookkeeping is the simpler method for bookkeeping and it’s mostly used by start-ups or smaller enterprises with financial transactions recorded on excel spreadsheets. 

To conduct single-entry bookkeeping, you’ll only need a cash book that shows your income and expenses incurred over a predetermined period. 

 

Double Entry

Double entry bookkeeping, on the other hand, is more complex and requires the usage of advanced bookkeeping software. An example would be Quickbooks, the trusted software utilized here at StartUp Advisors.

The double entry bookkeeping system is more detailed with every transaction recorded in terms of debit and credit. This hence allows for greater accuracy when preparing financial statements.

What are the methods of bookkeeping you use?

This decision will be dependent on how your business intends to recognise your revenue and expenses. However, there are 3 main methods – cash basis, accrual basis, and hybrid. 

  • Cash: The transaction is recognized whenever cash enters and exits your accounts.
  • Accrual: The transaction is recognized whenever revenue and expenses are earned and incurred.
  • Hybrid: The hybrid accounting model will vary depending on your company but this method will largely help with your inventory management.
