cash basis accounting and cash injection

How to account for cash injection in a cash basis accounting?

Didn't find your answer?

A sole-trader transfers money from a personal/joined bank account to business account.

How to account for this in cash basis system where there is only income and expenditure?

Thank you in advance

A cash injection does not get shown in the P & L. It is treated the same as under accrual accounting. It is a Balance Sheet item

If you don't have a balance sheet then it doesn't go anywhere, you just don't put it in.

I'm struggling with the concept of a balance sheet under cash accounting.

Surely the only entry would be cash.

To be fair, I've always struggled with the concept of cash accounting.

I know what you mean, in its purest form it is a cash register. Any business with debtors and creditors other than for taxes arising from the cash transactions shouldn't be using it, except in the context of VAT if they are registered.

Also for most s/e businesses balance sheets are pointless.

They will soon be relevant
Bounce Back loans for the self employed
Interest thereon

I was looking to start a thread on that exact issue

I also do not bother with Balance sheets on most small traders. VAT is usually the deciding factor.
