Hi all,

I have a client who is starting an online platform for renting tools. Users deposit money, rent the tool and the owner gets the money for that. How would you account the in/out of the money for the service?
It's an Asset/Liability transaction but what would be the exact accounts you would use?
Thank you!

Hi Pepita,

My understanding is that any deposit he gets if there is a possibility of returning that deposit then the following:

Dr Cash
Cr Deferred income (Liability)

When the deposit becomes actual sale then,

Dr Deferred income
Cr sales.

Hi Taimur,

Thank you very much replying!
I have two questions, if you would be so kind to answer:
1st - When money deposited are deposited to our bank account, can I do it Dr Bank/ Cr Deferred income?
2nd - The deposit which the 1st client gives us is the rent + the fee we get for using our platform and doing the transaction, then how would you change the second transaction? Only the fee is the actual sale, the rest of the amount goes to the owner of the tool.
