    Anytime you issue a check you're issuing cash. So you'll credit cash in those situations. On the opposite side you'll debit something where it's an asset account or a liability.

    Step 1: Debit Equipment, Credit Cash

    When you purchase something, the words "on account" mean Accounts Payable. Since you owe money you credit Accounts payable, and debit an asset account.

    Step 3) Debit Office supplies, credit Accounts payable

    If you received payment for work done prior, chances are you have a receivable in Accounts receivable. You need to get that amount out of there when you receive the cash.

    Step 5) debit Cash, credit accounts receivable

    Basically list all of you asset and liability accounts and read the item thoroughly.
