How is subsidiary ledger different to the general ledger?

A subsidiary ledger is a group of similar accounts whose combined balances equal the balance in a specific general ledger account. The general ledger account that summarizes a subsidiary ledger's account balances is called a control account or master account. For example, an accounts receivable subsidiary ledger (customers' subsidiary ledger) includes a separate account for each customer who makes credit purchases. The combined balance of every account in this subsidiary ledger equals the balance of accounts receivable in the general ledger. Posting a debit or credit to a subsidiary ledger account and also to a general ledger control account does not violate the rule that total debit and credit entries must balance because subsidiary ledger accounts are not part of the general ledger; they are supplemental accounts that provide the detail to support the balance in a control account.

What you meant by Self balancing system?

when separate ledgers are maintained for trade debtors and trade creditors ,the debit and credit aspect of certain transactions will note appear in the same ledger Eg: in case of credit sales ,the credit aspect (Sales account) will appear in general ledger whereas the debit aspect (personal account of debtor)will appear in debtors ledger .Take another cash discount allowed by a creditor .The credit aspect (personal account of the creditor )will appear in creditors ledger .Thus no ledger is self balancing and it is not possible to prepare a separate trial balance for each ledger .Hence in ,in order to make each ledger self -balancing it is necessary that the corresponding debit and credit aspects are fully "adjustment accounts " in each ledger . the adjustment account helps in completing the double entry in each ledger and making it self balancing . The adjustment account opens in various ledgers are; 1 ) general ledger adjustment account(in debtors ledger) 2 ) general ledger adjustment account(in creditors ledger) 3 ) debtors ledger adjustment account (in general ledger) 4 ) creditors ledger adjustment account (in general ledger)
