General Ledger Accounts in Bookkeeping
General ledger accounts are the place where all the financial transactions of a business are contained - so all your income and expenses. Each payment is allocated to an account. Bookkeepers shorten it to GL when speaking of it. A GL summary will show every account name with its balance; bookkeeping software will also show if the balance is a debit or credit (that's a whole other story!). Important business reports, like an Income Statement, get the information from the GL accounts. #bookkeeping
