Computerized Accounting System

A computerized accounting system is that accounting information system that helps in processing the financial transactions and events as per the generally accepted accounting principles (GAPP) and leads to the generation of reports as per the requirements of the user.

An accounting system weather manual or computerized has two parameters , namely,

1. It has to follow the defined concept s known as the accounting principles and 2. it has to maintain the userdefined structure for

maintenance of records and generation of reports.

Features system




The computerized accounting system is based on the concept of databases. It does not involve the process of creating and maintaining journals, ledgers etc. which are necessary in the manual accounting system. A computerized accounting system comprises of the following main features: 1) It facilitates on-line input and storage of accounting data. 2) In this system , the recording of transactions i.e.

storing of data in database is done manually and all other calculations are done by computers. 3) In this the stored data are processed automatically by the software to give us ledger accounts. 4) In this, transactions once recorded are stored in the database which will produce trial balance automatically. 5) In this , financial statements are generated from the software itself and therefore there is no need to prepare a trial balance.

6) It generates a print out purchase and sales invoices. 7) It facilitates a system of codification of accounts and transactions. 8) It facilitates grouping of the various accounts. 9) It generates different reports quickly.

The computerized accounting system has various advantages over the manual system which are given below :1. High Speed :The accounting speed of a computer is much faster than that of a human being. 2.

Accuracy : the accuracy of a computer cannot be doubted once a particular program is fed. All the results based on such program would be 100% accurate whereas the results produced by a human

being can very carelessness, etc.




4. Updation of information : All the related records in a computer get automatically updated once any information is purchased in, whereas in case of manual accounts all the records will have to be altered one by one. 5. Efficiency: The computer based accounting systems ensure better and efficient use of resources and time. 6.

require a large amount of physical space which is in the form hard-disks, CD-Roms ,floppies that occupy a fraction of physical space as compared to the books of accounts in the form of ledger ,Journal and other accounting registers.

Limitation of computerized accounting system

Despite many advantages offered by a computerized accounting system it is not free from limitations. Various limitations of a computerized accounting system are as follows: 1. Staff opposition: Introduction of computers lead to a lot of retrenchment

as well as complication of activities which result in resistance of the staff. 2. High cost of training:The sophisticated computerized accounting packages generally require specialized staff personnel, which leads to heavy amount of cost of training. 3.

not be located in a computerized set up whereas the same can be easily done in case of manual records. 5.

Project work

The project assigned` to me by The Co-operative Sugar Mills Kaithal during my 4 weeks training, was a practical work of recording of the Transfer vouchers into computerized accounting system. During my training I did entry of transfer vouchers of nine months i.e., since May 2010 to Jan 2011

Meaning of voucher : A voucher is a document which provides the authorization to pay and on the basis of which the business transactions are, first of all, recorded in the books of accounts. A separate voucher is prepared for each transaction and it specifies the accounts to be debited or credited. The form of voucher varies from firm to firm since vouchers are printed separately by different firms in there own names. There are two types of vouchers: - Cash voucher - Non-cash vouchers / Transfer vouchers Cash Vouchers : Cash vouchers are prepared for cash transactions i.e., cash receipts and cash payments.

Transfer Vouchers: These vouchers are prepared for non-cash transactions such as : - For credit purchase or credit sale of goods - For credit purchase or credit sale of investments - For credit purchase or credit sale of fixed assets - For return of goods purchased or sold on credit - For providing depreciation - For writing off bad debts Contents of Transfer Vouchers: Usually the following information is contained in non cash voucher : i. Date of preparing voucher. ii. Serial number of voucher. iii. Name of account debited name of account credited. iv.

During recording of transfer vouchers on computerized accounting system were following : 1. Sometimes instead of selecting the name from the list wrong name is written then it becomes difficult to find out this error. 2. Sometimes wrong amount is entered. 3. It was difficult to write narration for me because of not having the knowledge of the subject. 4. Sometimes wrong date was entered then it becomes difficult to manipulate it as there have to change in the columns of excel sheet. 5. Sometimes because of having too similar name or more than one of same name than it becomes difficult to choose the right one. In such condition I used to note down the problems on paper. 6. If there would not be any name which is required then for that name new account was prepared in ledger option.
