Using the Free Bookkeeping Spreadsheet
- Delete the example name, period, and transactions. Switch to the bookkeeping spreadsheet tab, and highlight the completed example cells (Row 7 onwards) and delete the contents. Do not include any cells in column N when trying to delete as this column contains protected cells.
- Enter the business name and accounting period. The accounting period would normally be one month, but can be any period appropriate to the business.
- Enter the expense payments categories. There are nine expense payments categories, phone, mobile etc. You can rename these categories by highlighting the cell and entering the new name.
- Enter transactions. For each transaction enter the date, reference, description, and amount under the appropriate column heading. The simple bookkeeping spreadsheet will total the expense payments for a particular transaction and also provide totals for each category for the accounting period.
- Switch to the accounts summary tab. The accounts summary tab will show a summary of the receipts and payments for the period together with a net receipts total.
