The accounting process starts with the analysis of business transactions.

A business transaction is a financial event that changes the resources of a firm.

2-2

 A business transaction is analyzed to see how it affects this equation:

Property = Financial Interest

 In a free enterprise system, all property is owned by someone.

2-3

Use these steps to analyze the effect of a business transaction.

1. Describe the financial event.

Identify the property.

Identify who owns the property.

Determine the amount of increase or decrease.

2. Make sure the equation is in balance.

Property = Financial Interest
