A journal entry, is a logging of transactions into the accounting general ledger. The journal entry can consist of several transactions, each of which is either a debit or a credit. The total of the debits must equal the total of the credits or the journal entry is said to be "unbalanced".

Journal entries can record unique items or recurring items such as depreciation or bond amortization.
