Using journal vouchers

A transaction involving money is always backed up by a payment voucher or receipt.  The equivalent back up document for a transaction not involving the movement of money is called a journal voucher.

Examples of 'non-cash' transactions include to recognise a donation in kind of a computer, to correct a coding error in a previous closed month, to charge interest on a loan or depreciate fixed assets.

Journal vouchers are usually used by accountants who understand double entry bookkeeping.
