Sales ledger control

2.Sales ledger control

Now i have been trying to understand why is entry 2 different from entry number 1 but then again it's the same for the sales returns. To be honest also i have not seen any purchases of any form entered like that.

Can someone tell me why this is please thank you.

    I believe you are asking about double entry:

    Dr Sales Ledger Control
    Cr Sales
    Cr VAT

    DEAD-CLIC - Debit Expenses, Assets, Drawings - Credit, Liabilities, Income, Capital

    There is another acronym that people use but I cant remember it just now.

    I used acronyms a lot when trying to get to grips with Debits and Credits.
