Control Accounts Training

The primary objective of the control account is to keep the general ledger free of details and have the correct balance for the financial statements. It can be explained, via example, that the Accounts Receivable in the general ledger could be a control account. If it controls the account, the company would merely update the reports with a few amounts, such as total sales on account for the day, complete collections for the day, and total allowances and returns for the day.

The account details for each customer and each transaction would not be recorded in the Accounts Receivable control account in the general ledger. Instead, these details of the accounts receivable activity will be in the Accounts Receivable Subsidiary Ledger. It works well because the employees working with the general ledger probably do not need to see the details of every sale or every transaction collection. However, the credit manager and sales manager will need to know detailed information about every customer, including whether a customer has reduced their account balance. Any company can provide these individuals with access to the Accounts Receivable Subsidiary Ledger and can keep the general ledger free of a tremendous amount of detail.

In control accounts, the typical level of activity is on a daily basis. For example, all payables entered during one day will be aggregated from the subsidiary ledger and posted as a single summary-level number into the accounts payable control account. Posting into all control accounts must be completed before the books can close at the end of a reporting period; otherwise, transactions may strand in a subsidiary ledger.

If managers want to see detailed transactional information for accounts payable, they can review the details located in the subsidiary ledger.

Large organisations most commonly use control accounts since their transaction volume is very high. A small organisation can typically store all of its transactions in the general ledger, and so does not need a subsidiary ledger that is linked to a control account.
