It is believed that every organization requires goods for running its business. Goods can be purchased in two different ways- on cash and credit. Most of the companies prefer credit purchase of goods over cash. I would like to explain to you the meaning of credit purchases followed by journal entry and simple practical example.Purchased Goods on CreditIn simple terms, when an organization (or) customer purchases the goods from the seller (or) supplier and agrees to pay the consideration (value or price) of the goods on some future date then it is called as credit purchases. Whenever credit purchase takes place accounts payable account/sundry creditor is created.Accounts payable increases when the organization keeps on purchasing goods on credit. It is considered as a short-term debt that an organization owes to another organization during the ordinary (or) normal course of business.Journal Entry for goods purchased on creditModern Accounting Approach-DateParticularsL.F.AmountNature of AccountAccounting Rule1st MarchPurchases a/c25,000ExpenseDebit The Increase in Expense To Accounts Payable/Supplier a/c 25,000LiabilityCredit– The Increase in Liability.Traditional Accounting ApproachDateParticularsL.F.AmountNature of AccountAccounting Rule1st MarchPurchases a/c25,000NominalDebit– All expenses and losses.
