Day book reports

Day book reports

A daybook is a book of original entry in which an accountant records transactions by date, as they occur. This information is later transferred into a ledger, from which the information is summarized into a set of financial statements. Daybooks are only used in a manual accounting environment, and so are not commonly found in a modern accounting system Firms sometimes use one or more daybooks (or books of original entry) instead of the journal as the first data entry point for transactions. Entries in daybooks build in chronological order, just as they do in journals. Entries in the firm's various daybooks are frequently transferred to the firm's "journal," and then ultimately to the ledger. With daybooks, in other words, the journal becomes the second step in the accounting cycle, while the ledger becomes third.
