ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS 0 1. A subsidiary ledger is a group of accounts with a common characteristic. The accounts are as- sembled together to facilitate the accounting process by freeing the general ledger from details concerning individual balances. The advantages of using subsidiary ledgers are that they: < Permit transactions affecting a single customer or single creditor to be shown in a single account, thus providing necessary up-to-date information on specific account balances. < Free the general ledger of excessive details relating to accounts receivable and accounts payable. As a result, a trial balance of the general ledger does not contain potentially thou- sands and thousands of individual account balances. < Assist in locating errors in individual accounts by reducing the number of accounts combined in one ledger and by using controlling accounts. < Permit a division of labor in posting by having one employee post to the general ledger and (a) different employee(s) post to the subsidiary ledgers. 0 2. (a) (1) Individual transactions are generally posted daily to the subsidiary ledger. (2) In contrast, postings to the control account are usually made in total at the end of the month. (b) A control account is a general ledger account that summarizes subsidiary ledger data. Sub- sidiary ledger accounts keep track of specific account activity (i.e., specific debtors or credi- tors). A subsidiary ledger is an addition to, and an expansion of, the general ledger. 0 3.
