A double entry system of accounting or bookkeeping means every business transaction will involve two accounts . 

For example recording earnings of a certain amount would require making two entries . A debit entry to an account called 'cash' and credit entry to an account called 'income' . 

Reggie pvt limited purchased a car by taking loan of 4000$ from bank . 


Reggie pvt limited acquires an assent worth 4000$ . This is debit effect . 

Reggie pvt limited has now a liability if 4000$ . This is the credit effect .
