Let's use a simple example of a sale of goods for cash by A to Customer B. Both companies have just started in business.
Store A
Cash = \$500
Inventory = \$400
Stock \$900
Assets (900) = equity (900)
Customer B
Cash \$1,100
Stock \$1,100
Assets (1100) = Equity (1100)
B purchases goods from A for \$600. Their cost to A was \$300.
After the sale, A:
Cash (1100) + inventory (100) = equity (900 + 300 income)
1200=1200
After the sale, B:
Cash (500) + inventory (600) = equity (1100)
The accounting equation stays in balance for both enterprises.
