Concept Of Cash Transactions

Cash transactions refer to cash receipts and payments. The receipts of cash from various sources and payments of cash on various heads are important routine transactions of a business. The main sources of cash receipts are the sale of goods and services, the sale of old assets, the contribution of capital, loans borrowed, interest, rent, commission, and other receipts from customers.


  1. To have a systematic and permanent record of all cash transactions in a separate book.​
  2. To obtain reliable and detailed information on all the cash receipts and payments easily and immediately.​
  3. To keep effective control over the misappropriation of cash transactions.​
  4. To know the main sources and heads of payment of cash.​
  5. To know cash balances.​

Cash Book

The cash book is a complete record of all the receipts and payments, which are made either in cash or through the bank. It has two sides. The debit side shows cash receipts and the credit side shows cash payments. All the cash and cheques received and deposited are shown on the cash receipt side. All the payments made in cash and or by cheque are shown on the payment side. At the end of the given period, its balance is obtained to know the amount of cash and bank balances.​

Single-column cash books, Double column cash book,s and triple-column cash books are the types of cash books.

Contra Entry

Contra Entry is the act of recording a transaction both on the receipt and payment sides of the cash book. It completes the double effect of the transactions entering the amount one in the cash column and the next in the bank column. Again such an entry, the alphabet ‘C’ is mentioned in the L.F column. The alphabet ‘C’ indicates that the entry is contra and the posting is not necessary. Contra entry is passed for the deposited and withdrawn for office use.​
