    Hope your Accountant is Online.

    Accounting for Cars is complex.


    Ledgers may include -


      Car    eg Ford Ute May 2024   I include the Rego Number

         Depreciation and GST Limits apply

         Private Use is considered


      Interest on Loan eg  Interest WBC Loan  Ford Ute

       I do monthly Journals for the Interest (refer Amortisation Schedule)


      Loan Repayments   eg WBC Loan $888 by 48 months

      Balloon eg WBC Loan Balloon $10,000 April 2028


      Depreciation of the Car   eg Ford Ute May 2024 Accum Depn

      I do monthly Journals for the Car Depreciation
