Would you like to know what Accounting REALLY MEANS? In this short tutorial we'll take 1 simple example and follow it through all 8 Steps of the Accounting Cycle - from start to finish - you'll build a solid understanding of all the Accounting Basics we encounter along the way. Stuff like the Accounting Equation, Debits & Credits, Double-Entry Accounting, T-Accounts, the Trial Balance etc.

If you're an Accounting Beginner, then I recommend watching this all the way through to the end - at least once - to get a complete picture of how Accounting works. Afterwards, you can jump into my Accounting Basics Playlist (see below) and explore every topic in more detail.
