Thank you for your question about how to number the chart of accounts. There are a few different number systems that can be used. I have included a picture of a simple numbering system in this post.

Another common Chart of Accounts number list is shown below:

Fixed Assets 1 to 999
Current Assets 1000 to 1999
Current Liabilities 2000 to 2299
Long Term Liabilities 2300 to 2999
Capital and Reserves 3000 to 3999
Sales 4000 to 4999
Purchases 5000 to 5999
Direct Expenses 6000 to 6999
Overheads 7000 to 7999
Depreciation and Sundry 8000 to 8999
