This section describes the process of setting up, editing and working with
GnuCash Accounts. In
an Account is used as the basic tool to organize the recording of where money comes from and
GnuCash also extends the concept of real world accounts such as a bank account or loan
account to grouping income and expense accounts. This allows you to quickly see where you spent
your money and what your major income and expenses are.
GnuCash sets Account Types (as described
in the next section) to help in organizing and grouping accounts. Account Types can be used to
create a Chart of Accounts.
