A basic competence: Double-entry bookkeeping

The principle of double-entry bookkeeping is a global standard for the financial management of companies and organisations; it helps to manage them well and to understand financial details. Its knowledge is therefore essential for future entrepreneurs and managers in both the public and private sectors.

By using Banana Accounting to learn double-entry bookkeeping, students prepare for the professional world and develop digital skills, thus increasing their chances of finding a job.

Digital transformation of teaching

In all fields, from architecture to video making, software is already being used to learn the job. Now also in accounting!

To keep up with the times, schools, books publishers, and authors of accounting books and online courses must also undergo the digital transition.

Integrating Banana Accounting into their courses makes the process much easier, as it is the only tool suitable for learning double-entry bookkeeping while simultaneously learning how to use accounting software.

For schools all over the world

Many schools use the most common software in their country or the most widely used in companies, but that was not designed for education. Banana Accounting, on the other hand, has been constantly improved through collaboration with schools, making it as easy as possible to learn double-entry bookkeeping.

You can freely customise the accounting file, adapting it to the regulations of Switzerland, Italy or another country.

Software structure

Similar to Excel

Thanks to its Excel-looking interface, Banana Accounting minimizes the time required to explain the program's functioning to students. Its flexibility allows for free movement within the table, modification of data at any time, and the ability to color rows for easy analysis.

Additionally, unlike Excel, all calculations are automatic, thus eliminating the risk of errors.

Double-entry accounting made simple

Thanks to its intuitive table-based interface, the Debit A/C and Credit A/C columns are always visible, making it easier to learn and become an accounting expert.

The program immediately indicates accounting errors and discrepancies, thus helping with learning and saving a lot of time for both exercises and teacher corrections.

Transactions table

The Transactions table contains the journal and all the necessary elements for a complete and professional accounting experience.
Students can practice entering the data, edit it and review it all.

Moreover, the addition of the Balance column in the Transactions table enables swift identification of any accounting discrepancies, facilitating prompt correction.

Chart of accounts

The Chart of Accounts of Banana Accounting is fully customisable to meet individual needs. Students:

  • learn how to set up the Chart of Accounts;
  • immediately view the Balance Sheet and Income Statement;
  • can easily add, edit or delete accounts.

Account balances update automatically after each registration, ensuring organized accounting and constant control over activities.

Balance Sheet and Profit & Loss Statement

Banana Accounting automatically performs all calculations and instantly prepares the Balance Sheet, Profit & Loss Account and other statements.
You can easily obtain various reports to analyse the data:

  • Balance Sheet
  • Profit and Loss Statement
  • Account ledgers and supportive subledgers
  • Transactions Journal
  • And much more!

Balance sheet analysis

Students can quickly generate reports with comprehensive KPIs and balance sheet ratios, in order to focus more on data analysis:

  • Liquidity ratios (Cash ratio, Quick ratio, Current ratio)
  • Profitability ratios (ROE, ROI, ROS, ... )
  • Efficiency ratios
  • Cash Flow
  • And much more!

Teaching double-entry bookkeeping

How teaching with Banana Accounting works

Banana can be used for both for classroom and online lessons.

  1. The teacher prepares the exercise: use the pre-set double-entry accounting template, which you can adapt according to your needs. Share the file via e-learning platform, OneDrive, Dropbox or via e-mail.
  2. Students carry out the exercise: each student carries out the exercise independently, working on the file with their own device. Once the work is finished, the student saves the file and sends it back to the teacher.
  3. The teacher corrects the exercise: with Automatic Exercise Correction you correct students' work without wasting time. You can later send the file back to the student.

Automatic Correction of excercises

You no longer have to worry about correcting your students' exercises: the Extension for Accounting exercise correction does it for you!

  1. Prepare the accounting file containing the exercise solutions.
  2. Open the accounting file with the student's exercise and start the extension.
  3. The correct information will be automatically written next to the student's entries.

You save a great amount of time and valuable resources, which you can then devote to teaching.

Save files wherever you want

The software does not have its own cloud but allows you to use your own or the school's cloud, ensuring data privacy and providing the ability to save files in various modes:

  • locally on your device
  • on external devices
  • on cloud systems such as Microsoft OneDrive, Google Drive, Dropbox, iCloud, etc.

It is possible to work comfortably offline, both in class and at home, and create an unlimited number of accounting files.

Swiss commercial schools

The Banana Accounting software performs all tasks related to the accounting of an organisation (company) in order to draw up the balance sheet and calculate the profit for a period. Added to this are other advantages, such as time savings due to the regular updating of data, the automatic creation of the organisation's accounting documents, periodic checking and verification of the accounts, and the fact that it does not require the entry of formulas to perform various calculations.
