Record transactions The following discussion took place between Tony Cork, the office manager of Hallmark Data Company, and a new accountant, Cassie Miles: Cassie: I've been thinking about our method of recording entries. It seems inefficient. Tony: In what way? Cassie: Well−correct me if I'm wrong−it seems like we have unnecessary steps in the process. We could easily develop a trial balance by posting our transactions directly into the ledger and bypassing the journal altogether. In this way, we could combine the recording and posting process into one step and save ourselves a lot of time. What do you think? Tony: We need to have a talk. What should Tony say to Cassie?
