For Example:
X Ltd gave rs.10000 to the employee for petty expenses. the employee will create a petty cash account called as imprest account. he will debit the account as when he incurs expenditure.

And if the imprest account is having debit balance then the amount is due from him & if the imprest account is having credit balance then amount is payable to him.

Imprest accounts are those accounts in which opening balance of such accounts whether monthly or annually remains constant
to match the opening balances, the deficeincy in the closing balance is met by introducing fresh amount
Imprest a/cs are opened for cash, stock, bank etc
these are opened to put control on the uses of such assets
