You can classify expenses under following heads conveniently:

a. Accommodation expenses (includes electricity, water, property tax, rent etc.).

b. Communication expenses (includes mobile, land line etc.).

c. Education expenses (includes fees, uniform, project expenses etc.).

d. Books and periodicals.

e. Employee costs (include servant / driver cost)

f. Travel and entertainment

Plot your revenue side and calculate your deficit / saving.

The steps are as follows:

1. Ignore opening and dosing cash and bank balances appearing in receipts and payments account.

2. Eliminate all items of capital receipts and payments.

3. Ascertain income of the relevant year by deducting from the total receipts the income received on account of previous and future years and by adding the income accrued due in the year but not received and income received in the previous year but relating to this year.

4. Ascertain expenditure of the relevant period by deducting expenditure both relating to preceding period and succeeding period from the total payments and by adding the expenditure outstanding at the end and expenditure prepaid in the beginning.

5. Make adjustments, as per additional information, such as depreciation, bad debts etc., if any.

6. The income and expenditure account, when balanced, will disclose surplus (if the credit side is bigger) or deficit (if the debit side is bigger). If surplus i.e. excess on income over expenditure add it to the capital or accumulated fund. However, if deficit i.e., excess of expenditure over income deduct it from the capital or accumulated fund.
