Our free Excel cash book template is designed for ease of use. It is suitable for both small business and personal banking accounts. The reason for designing it is that many businesses do not need a full accounts package, but do need an easy way of recording profit and loss throughout the year.
It offers businesses a simple free accounting system if your business does expand it will be easy to transfer the figures from the spreadsheet to a more advanced accounting system in the future.
The Cash Book does not keep track of sales invoices or VAT, if you need either of these features then you may benefit from a full accounting package.
Cash Book Receipts and Expenses
To make it easier all the cash book receipts are shown first on the template followed by the expenses. Your bank statements may show receipts as money in, deposits or income.
