The content and features of the accounting methodology in cooperative entities are determined by the features of formation and changes of individual components of their equity, in particular share capital and retained earnings (uncovered loss), as well as by the emergence of new objects of accounting and economic relations. Share capital is the economic basis for cooperatives the existence. Therefore, we have proposed our own version of analytical accounting of share capital and cooperative members’ contributions. The format of “Share Accounting Book” used by most of the agricultural cooperatives investigated, does not fully correspond to the information needs of users. Therefore, it was proposed to improve this form of analytical accounting register. To organize the analytical accounting of land ownership, one should use the separate books for land registration. That will provide cooperative management and members with the detailed information onthe land ownership volume and dynamics for the whole business and in relation to its co-owners.
