From time to time, you may hear a bookkeeper or accountant refer to a business’ chart of accounts. The chart of accounts is a basic listing of all accounts that the business uses.

The chart of accounts will be ordered numerically. Typically the chart of accounts will group similar account types in specific ranges of numbers. Since the nature of each business is different the chart of accounts will be structured specifically to each business. For example, a company may use:

  • 1000 – 1999: asset accounts
  • 2000 – 2999: liability accounts
  • 3000 – 3999: equity accounts
  • 4000 – 4999: revenue accounts
  • 5000 – 5999: cost of goods sold accounts
  • 6000 – 6999: expense accounts
  • 7000 – 7999: other revenues & gains
  • 8000 – 8999: other expenses & losses
