What is Day Book?

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.


In daybook, user can see all type of entries in double entry mode. Actually in old times, when books were used to be written by hand on registers. At those times, accountants used to post entry in day book and then they used to move it to ledgers. In current times, we post entry in software and it automatically goes to daybook.

Use Case
