Question:

What is the basic accounting equation for double-entry accounting? And why is it important?

Brian R.

Assets = Liabilities + Owner's Equity is the basic accounting equation. All aspects of accounting are based on this formula. This formula lets you know that any time you change one side of the equation you also have to change the other. For example, if you decrease your cash (Asset) you also have to increase an expense (part of Owner's Equity). Knowing this it always allows a double check for your work because if your formula is out of balance then your numbers are wrong.
