    This series consists of a single volume into which details of accounts requiring payment were entered for presentation to the Footscray Tramway Trust for approval. All accounts required the approval of the Trust before payment could proceed. Each page includes a statement that the accounts listed were passed for payment and is certified by the chairman of the Trust.

    Each page in the volume is numbered and has columns to record the ledger account title, name of creditor, voucher and cheque numbers, amount and total. Entries commence with accounts presented to the meeting of the Trust held on 11October 1917 and continue to an entry dated 29 January 1920 which corresponds with the date of the last meeting of the Trust.

    Prior to 11 October 1917 details of accounts to be passed for payment were included in VPRS 7800, Minute Book. From 11 October 1917 to 27 May 1918 the account information is recorded in both VPRS 7800 and in this series. From 30May 1918 the Minutes cease to record this information in detail and instead refer to page number and/or the total of the accounts in the finance book.

    This series neither controls are is controlled by another series. Further information on the financial transactions of the Footscray Tramway Trust may be obtained by referring to VPRS 7800, Minute Book, and VPRS 7951, Accounting Records.
