Uses of the General Ledger

  • Provides a subsidiary book for non-regular transactions
  • Eliminates need for remembering why non-regular transactions were put through the accounts

  • Reduces the risk of errors- lists all the transactions to be entered into the system
  • Ensures entries can be traced back to a source document- an audit trail for non-regular transactions
