General Ledger

The General Ledger contains all the accounts for recording transactions relating to a company’s assets, liabilities, owners’ equity, revenue, and expenses. The general ledger works as a central repository for accounting data transferred from modules like accounts payable, accounts receivable, sales, and payroll. The general ledger is the backbone of any accounting system; it holds financial and non-financial data for an organization.
