Adjusting Entries in Tally Accounting
The purpose of adjusting entries is to accurately assign revenues and expenses to the accounting period in which they occurred
Whenever you record your accounting journal transactions, they should be done in real-time. If you’re using an accrual accounting system, money doesn’t necessarily change hands at that time of the accounting entry; the purpose of adjusting entries is to show when the money was officially transferred and to convert your real-time entries to entries that accurately reflect your accrual accounting system.
What are Accounting Adjustments?
An accounting adjustment is a business transaction that has not yet been included in the accounting records of a business as of a specific date. Most transactions are eventually recorded through the recordation of (for example) a supplier invoice, customer billing, or the receipt of cash. Such transactions are usually entered in a module of the accounting software that is specifically designed for it, and which generates an accounting entry on behalf of the user.
Why We Need Adjusting Journal Entries?

In general, there are two types of adjusting journal entries: accruals and deferrals. Adjusting entries are booked before financial statements three being released.
