This section describes the process of setting up, editing and working with
GnuCash an Account is used as the basic tool to organize the recording of where money comes
from and goes to.
GnuCash also extends the concept of real world accounts such as a bank
account or loan account to grouping income and expense accounts. This allows you to
quickly see where you spent your money and what your major income and expenses are.
GnuCash sets Account Types (as described in the next section) to help in organizing
and grouping accounts. Account Types can be used to create a Chart of Accounts.
