Answer D; B; E; A; G; C; F Exhibit 1, p.141
Purpose of Worksheet Facilitates End-of-the-Accounting-Period Easy-to-use/All-in-one-sheet containing data needed for adjusting entries as well as financial statements Excel adaptation
The Worksheet Exhibit 2; p. 144B; 5 columns “Trial Balance” –Transferred from Ledger; debits = credits “Adjustments” –Record adjusting entries (p. 142: a-f); debits = credits “Adjusted Trial Balance” –Compute the new balance after considering adjusting entries; check for accuracy as debits = credits “Income Statement” –Enter the balance in the revenue and expense accounts; total debits and credits; difference between debits and credits is Net Income (Net Loss) “Balance Sheet” –Enter the balance of assets, liabilities, capital, and drawings; total debit and credits; difference is Net Income (Net Loss)
Class Exercise: Dixie Machinery Adjusting entries: Record the following and prepare an Adjusted Trial Balance –$375 of prepaid insurance has expired –$400 of Office Equipment Depreciation –$350 in salaries are owed to employees Note: While you must journalize and post adjusting entries on the books, we will ignore for now.
Answer: Adjusted Trial Balance Now prepare –Income Statement What was the Net Income (Loss)? –Balance Sheet
Answer: Net Income Income Statement –Total credits (revenues): –Total debits (expenses): –Difference = Net income: $3850 Balance Sheet: –Total debits (assets): $7400 –Total credits (liabilities & Owners’ Equity): $3550 –Difference = Net Income: $3850
Balance Sheet Prepare a formal (classified) balance sheet (bottom p. 144; 144C).
Closing Entries Why? –(1) Revenues and Expenses are recorded for the year to determine net for each year. But to record each year, at EOY the balance must be reset to zero in each revenue, expenses, and drawing accounts. Since each year they start at zero balance they are known as temporary accounts. All other accounts are known as real accounts. –(2) Need to move the balance of the 3 accounts to the owner’s capital account. To show effect on Owner’s Equity.
Income Summary Why? –To move the balances from the temporary accounts. The difference between revenues and expenses = Net Income (Loss) How? –Close Revenues to Income Summary –Close Expenses to Income Summary –Confirm that balance in Income Summary = Net Income (Loss) –Close balance in Income Summary to Capital –Close drawing account to Capital (NOT IN INCOME SUMMARY) Balance in Income Summary is closed to the owner’s capital account
Class Exercise: Closing Entries
Post-Closing Trial Balance Why? –To make sure the Ledger accounts are at zero balance for next period. Example: Exhibit 12
Questions: (1) Which type of accounts do not appear in the post-closing trial balance? (2) Which accounts appear in the post- closing trial balance? (3) If an account was overlooked in the closing process, would the post-closing trial balance still balance?
Answers: (1) Temporary accounts: Revenues, Expenses, Drawings (2) Real accounts: Assets, Liabilities, and Capital (3) Yes. However, the Owner’s Capital Account will not be the same as the one in the Balance Sheet
