  1. How this will works in a scenario like mine.
    Let’s say we planning to open small business (Soap Factory). Total of 4 persons owned the business. We decided to collect $5000 each (Which is $20,000) to start the business and we collect all money in business account.
    1) For Operating Activities:
    – Spending on soap materials
    – Spending on employees
    – Spending on building rent
    – Revenue from Soap sales
    2) For Investing Activities:
    – Purchase of Soap machine
    3) For Financial Activities:
    – Cash received from bank
    – Cash spend on loan repaid

    My question is how do we label money that we collected to start the small Business? I guess, what’s the name for it?

    PS: I’m loving your videos. We decide to open a small business so I decided to research on ACCOUNTING.
