1 The Expanded Ledger: Revenue, Expense, and Drawings Chapter 5
2 Expanding the Ledger Through the first four chapters we have looked at the fundamental accounting equation … A ssets = L iabilities + O wner’s E quity This resulted in a single account for owner’s equity. By “default”, what types of entries have you charged to owner’s equity?
3 Types of OE Entries? 1.Owner’s investment in the company. 2.Revenues 2.Revenues from the sale of goods or by providing a service. 3.Expenses 3.Expenses related to the operation of the business and the generation of revenues. 4.Drawings 4.Drawings or owner’s withdrawals from the business for personal use.
4 The focus of Chapter 5 is the specific identification and use of accounts to track … Expanding the Ledger REVENUES DRAWINGS EXPENSES
5 The purpose of expanding the ledger is to provide essential information about the progress of the business. This information is needed to assess the ongoing profitability of the company. profitable profit What do we mean when we say a company is profitable or making a profit? loss? What is meant by loss? Expanding the Ledger
6 Example of Expanding the Ledger What do we know about profitability of this firm in the month of January? Did they make a profit or a loss?
7 How much was spent on advertising? Are the wages fair? Is the rent too high? How much did the owner withdraw from the business? Example of Expanding the Ledger What types of economic events can we “speculate” impacted the owner’s equity account?
8 Owner’s Equity $26,137 Example of Expanding the Ledger Now … what can we determine about the profitability of this firm?
9 Income Statement Some of the information from these new accounts will be used to prepare an Income Statement. Income Statement What do you think an Income Statement is? Income Statement Income Statement What accounts do you think we would use to prepare in Income Statement?
10 Sample Income Statement
11 revenue What is revenue? revenue Selling goods or services produces revenue. revenue What impact does revenue have on equity? Revenue is an increase in equity resulting from the sale of goods or services in the usual course of business. Revenue

13 Revenue Assets Owner’s Equity Liabilities=+ Debit Credit Debit Credit (DR) (CR) (DR) (CR) Normal Balance How do revenue accounts “behave”? Revenue represents an increase in equity. An increase in equity requires a credit entry. Therefore, to book revenue, credit the revenue account.
14 GAAP - Revenue Recognition The revenue recognition convention states that revenue must be recorded in the accounts (i.e. recognized) at the time the transaction is completed. What does this mean? Revenue is recorded when the bill is sent to the customer. For a cash transaction, revenue is recorded when the sale is complete and the cash is received.
15 expenses What is expenses? The costs associated with producing revenue. expenses What impact do expenses have on equity? Expenses Expenses represent a decrease in equity resulting from the cost of producing revenue. Examples???? Expenses
16 A company pays wages of $250. Before using expense accounts: Expenses Dr. Owner’s Equity$250 Cr. Cash$250 Using expense accounts: Dr. Wages Expense$250 Cr. Cash$250
17 Expenses Assets Owner’s Equity Liabilities=+ Debit Credit Debit Credit (DR) (CR) (DR) (CR) Normal Balance How do expense accounts “behave”? Expenses represent a decrease in equity. A decrease in equity requires a debit entry. Therefore, expense accounts are typically debited.
18 Using the revenue and expense accounts, a business can determine if they have earned a net income (profit) or a net loss. Net Income Net Income is the difference between the total revenues and total expenses, where the revenues are greater than the expenses. Net Loss A Net Loss is created if expenses are greater than the revenues. Net Income or Net Loss
19 The owner usually looks to the profits of the business to provide a livelihood. In a healthy business, the owner is able to take funds (generated by profits) out of the business. Drawings These withdrawals of funds, by the owner, are known as Drawings and decrease equity. Drawings
20 Drawings are NOT expenses. They are not associated with producing revenue. Drawings have nothing to do with the determination of the net income or net loss. Cash is the most common item withdrawn by an owner for personal use. Drawings
21 There are four types of accounts in the equity section: 1.Capital 1.Capital – this account will now contain only the equity figure at the beginning of the fiscal period plus new capital from the owner. 2.Revenues 2.Revenues – increases in equity resulting from the sale of goods or services. A revenue account normally has a credit balance. Expanding the Ledger

The Income Statement
26 Net Income is not cash. It is the difference between total revenues and total expenses. The word “expense” is not always required. Why? In what order are expenses listed? A company can have more than one source of revenue. Date? The accounting period for which the figures have been accumulated
27 Who uses the Income Statement? 1.Owners and Managers Shows if the business is making profit. Used for setting goals and policy. When compared to previous years, it provides a trend … highlighting potential problems. 2.Bankers Supports loan decisions. Past profitability is one indicator of future potential.

28 Who uses the Income Statement? 3.Income Tax Authorities Every business is required by law to prepare an income statement. The net income figure of a proprietorship must be included on the owner’s income tax return. Corporations must file their own tax returns. The income statement must be sent to the government along with the tax returns. The Income Statement
29 fiscal period Net income is measured over a specific length of time, known as the fiscal period. fiscal period The formal fiscal period is typically one year. fiscal year The fiscal year does not have to be the calendar year … it just has to run for 12 consecutive months (or in some cases, 52 consecutive weeks) Fiscal Period
30 accounting period The text indicates that the fiscal period is sometimes referred to as the accounting period. Accounting periods Companies prepare financial statements periodically in order to assess their financial condition and operating results.

31 GAAP The Time Period Concept The time period concept provides that accounting will take place over specific time periods known as fiscal periods. What does this mean? Companies must use fiscal periods of equal length when measuring financial progress.
32 GAAP The Matching Principle The matching principle states that each expense item related to revenue earned must be recorded in the same period as the revenue it helped earn. What does this mean? Expenses must be recorded in the period in which the revenue is recognized. To do this, accountants make a number of mathematical adjustments in the accounts at the end of a fiscal year. (we cover this in detail in Chapter 9)
33 To help organize the expanded ledger, it is customary to number the accounts in the ledger. These numbers are used for identification and reference, particularly in computer systems. We will be using a computer system, Simply Accounting, later in the semester. The chart of accounts used by Simply Accounting is: Assets1000 – 1999 Liabilities2000 – 2999 Capital & Drawings3000 – 3999 Revenue4000 – 4999 Expenses5000 – 5999 Chart of Accounts
