Cash disbursements journal. Transactions that decrease cash are recorded in the cash disbursements journal. The cash disbursements journal to the right has one debit column for accounts payable and another debit column for all other types of cash payment transactions. It has credit columns for purchases discounts and for cash. Since each entry debits a control account (accounts payable) or an account listed in the column named Other , the specific account being debited must be identified on every line. The nature of each company's transactions determines which columns this journal includes. For example, companies sometimes choose to include separate debit columns for regularly used accounts such as salaries expense, sales commissions expense, or other specific accounts affected by cash disbursements.
