Each amount in the Debit and Credit columns of a general journal is posted to the account written in the Account Title column.
The only reason for the Post Ref. columns and general ledger is to indicate which entires in the journal still need to be posted if posting is interrupted.
There are five steps in posting an amount from the debit column of a general journal
If a debit is posted to an asset account, the amount of the debit will be subtracted from the previous account balance to determine the new account balance
If a credit is posted to a liability account, the amount of the credit will be subtracted from the previous account balance to determine the new account balance
After a journal has been posted, the Post. Ref. column is completely filled in with account numbers
Errors discovered before entries are posted must be corrected with a correcting entry
If an error requires a correcting entry, a memorandum is prepared as the source document describing the correction to be made.
If the payment of cash for rent was journalized and posted in error as a debit to Miscellaneous Expense instead of Rent Expense, the correcting entry will include a credit to Cash.
If an error in posting is made but not discovered until additional postings have been made to the account, the correct posting should be made on the next available line in the correct account.
If an incorrect amount is posted in an account, a line should be drawn through the incorrect amount, the correct amount should be written in above the correction, and the account balance should be recalculated
All corrections for posting errors should be made in a way that leaves no question as to the correct amount.
