The official definition for the Cash Disbursement Journal is a record kept by accountants to record all financial expenditures made by a company. These journals serve a number of functions, such as a source for recording tax write-offs and the categorization of other expenses.
Also, Cash Disbursement Journals may record varying types of expenses by assigning each type of expense a code, or by recording the various expenses in different columns. These journals are used to create yearly balance sheets and other financial statements.
If your company is anything like a typical small business, you possibly deal with a variety of different types of cash transactions. It is tempting to lump all these transactions together into one record, but it is almost categorically a bad idea. You will want to split up your cash transactions into a number of different places.
Keeping track of your cash, payables, and records can be an organizational nightmare. Your daily cash disbursements should be recorded in your Cash Disbursement Journal at all times.
