ClosingPersonal General Ledger (PGL)

 

At the end of each period income and expenses general ledger accounts are closed and must have 0 balance, as income statement indicates income earned and expenses incurred for the particular period. These accounts will be used in the next period to account income and expenses for that period. Closing of income and expenses accounts is done by transferring balances in these accounts to a balance sheet account called Retained earnings used to accumulate net profit retained in the business and belonging to the owners.

Balance in the Retained earnings account might be either on credit side (in case income exceed expenses, which means the company earned profit for the period), or on debit side (in case income is less than expenses, which means the company incurred loss for the period). Below closing of expenses account is presented. Closing is done by crediting expenses account with the balance in this account accumulated for the whole period, i.e. 7617$. This amount is transferred to Retained earnings account No. 31 debit turnover side. After this operation, balance in retained earnings account equals to 7617$ on the debit side.
