Copyright © John Wiley & Sons Canada, Ltd.Basic Terminology Event: The cause of changes of assets, liabilities, and equity Transaction: A transfer or exchange between two or more entities or parties Account: Where transactions are recorded A separate account is used for each asset, liability, revenue, expense, gain, loss and capital (owner’s equity) LO1 Copyright © John Wiley & Sons Canada, Ltd.
Copyright © John Wiley & Sons Canada, Ltd.Basic Terminology Permanent accounts (or “real” accounts) Asset, liability, and equity accounts Appear on the balance sheet Permanent accounts are not closed at year end Temporary accounts (or “nominal” accounts) Revenue, expense, and dividend accounts Revenue and expenses are on the income statement; dividends are on the statement of changes in shareholders equity. Temporary accounts are closed at year end LO1 Copyright © John Wiley & Sons Canada, Ltd.
Copyright © John Wiley & Sons Canada, Ltd.Basic Terminology Journalizing and Posting A Journal is a book of original entry for all transactions The General Journal is a chronological listing of transactions expressed as debits and credits to particular accounts (known as a journal entries) Special Journals are used to summarize transactions with common characteristics (e.g. cash receipts, sales, purchases) Posting: when the transaction information entered in the journal is transferred to the ledger accounts LO1 Copyright © John Wiley & Sons Canada, Ltd.
Copyright © John Wiley & Sons Canada, Ltd.Basic Terminology Ledger Book (or electronic database) containing all accounts Each account has a separate page General ledger contains all asset, liability, and all equity related accounts (capital, revenue, and expenses) Subsidiary ledger contains details related to a specific general ledger account (example: accounts receivable subsidiary ledger) LO1 Copyright © John Wiley & Sons Canada, Ltd.
Copyright © John Wiley & Sons Canada, Ltd.Basic Terminology Trial balance Listing of all accounts and their balances from the general ledger at a given point in time Objective: prove the mathematical equality of debits and credits after posting (i.e. to ensure general ledger is in balance) Typically prepared after end of period adjustments (called Adjusted Trial Balance) and possibly after closing entries (called Post- closing Trial Balance) LO1 Copyright © John Wiley & Sons Canada, Ltd.
Copyright © John Wiley & Sons Canada, Ltd.Basic Terminology Adjusting entries Entries made at the end of an accounting period Brings all accounts up to date on an accrual accounting basis Seven classifications of adjusting entries: Prepayment Accruals Estimated Items 1. Prepaid Expenses Accrued Revenues 5. Bad Debts 2. Unearned Revenues 4. Accrued Expenses 6. Unrealized Holding Gain or Loss 7. Unrealized Holding Gain or Loss - OCI LO1 Copyright © John Wiley & Sons Canada, Ltd.
Copyright © John Wiley & Sons Canada, Ltd.Basic Terminology Financial statements Final summaries of the accounting data for a specific time period Four statements: Statement of Financial Position (or Balance Sheet under ASPE) - shows financial condition at a specific date Statement of Comprehensive Income (or Income Statement under ASPE) - measures the results of operations during a period of time Statement of Cash Flows - shows sources and uses of cash Statement of Changes in Shareholders’ Equity (Statement of Retained Earnings under ASPE) LO1 Copyright © John Wiley & Sons Canada, Ltd.
Copyright © John Wiley & Sons Canada, Ltd.Debits and Credits Credit (Cr.) To record or enter an amount on the right side of a general ledger account Debit (Dr.) To record or enter an amount on the left side of a general ledger account This system of recording transactions is referred to as the double-entry accounting system; the two-sided effect of each transaction is recorded in appropriate accounts When a transaction is “in balance”, the debits equal the credits Debits and credits do not mean “increases” and “decreases” LO2 Copyright © John Wiley & Sons Canada, Ltd.
The Accounting EquationAssets = Liabilities + Shareholders’ Equity* *Shareholder’s Equity = Common Shares + Retained Earnings – Dividends + Revenues - Expenses LO3 Assets = Liabilities + Common Shares + Retained Earnings – Dividends + Revenues - Expenses Copyright © John Wiley & Sons Canada, Ltd.
The Rules of Debit and CreditTo increase the balance of any account, record the amount in the normal balance column To decrease the balance of any account, record the amount in the column opposite to its normal balance When any transaction is correctly recorded, the accounting equation will remain in balance LO2, LO3 Copyright © John Wiley & Sons Canada, Ltd.
The Rules of Debit and CreditDecrease Increase Expenses Revenue Shareholders’ Equity Liabilities Assets Credit Debit Account LO2, LO3 Copyright © John Wiley & Sons Canada, Ltd.
The Accounting Cycle: StepsAnalyse the transaction Journalize the transaction Post the transaction to general ledger (and sub- ledgers) accounts Prepare the (unadjusted) trial balance Prepare necessary adjusting journal entries Prepare the (adjusted) trial balance Prepare financial statements Prepare closing journal entries for the year Prepare post-closing trial balance (optional) Prepare reversing entries (optional) LO4 Copyright © John Wiley & Sons Canada, Ltd.
Recording a Transaction: Shares are issued for $3,000 cashAssets = Liabilities + Shareholders’ Equity + $3,000 To record this transaction as a journal entry (in General Journal): Dr. Cash $3,000 Cr. Common Shares $3,000 These amounts are then posted to the general ledger LO4 Common Shares Cash 3,000 3,000 Copyright © John Wiley & Sons Canada, Ltd.

Preparation of Trial BalanceFrom the previous example, we can see that the trial balance is “in balance” However, the trial balance only proves the mathematical accuracy of the ledger Errors may still exist such as the following: Transaction not journalized Correct journal entry not posted Journal entry posted twice Incorrect accounts used in either the journal entry or posting Offsetting errors made during recording LO4 Copyright © John Wiley & Sons Canada, Ltd.
Adjusting Journal EntriesAdjusting entries ensure that revenue recognition and matching are followed within the period Reasons for adjusting entries include: To record those events that are not journalized daily To record those costs, which expire with time and are therefore not recorded To record item previously unrecorded Adjusting entries are required each time financial statements are prepared LO5 Copyright © John Wiley & Sons Canada, Ltd.
Adjusting Entries for PrepaymentsPrepaid Expenses Prepayments made in cash and recorded as assets before item is used Unearned Revenues Revenue received in cash and recorded as liabilities before being earned LO5 Copyright © John Wiley & Sons Canada, Ltd.
Adjusting Entries for PrepaymentsPrepaid expenses expire either with the passage of time (e.g. rent and insurance) or by being used and consumed (e.g. supplies) Example: Company paid $6,000 for one year insurance when coverage begins October 1 and debited Prepaid Insurance for $6,000. Adjust Prepaid Insurance on Dec. 31: Dr Insurance Expense 1,500 Cr Prepaid Insurance 1,500 ($6,000/12 * 3) LO5 Copyright © John Wiley & Sons Canada, Ltd.
Adjusting Entries for PrepaymentsWhen payment is received from customers for services (or goods) that will be provided in a future accounting period, a liability (unearned revenue) is recognized e.g. Rent, magazine subscriptions, deposits Example: Company received $12,000 for four months’ advertising services that begins Oct. 1. $12,000 was credited to unearned revenue Adjustment required on December 31: Dr Unearned Revenue 9,000 Cr Service Revenue 9,000 ($12,000/4 * 3) LO5 Copyright © John Wiley & Sons Canada, Ltd.
Adjusting Entries for AccrualsAccrued Revenues Revenues earned but not yet received in cash and not recorded Accrued Expenses Expenses incurred but not yet paid in cash and not recorded LO5 Copyright © John Wiley & Sons Canada, Ltd.
Adjusting Journal EntriesExpenses must be accrued when they are incurred; also revenues must be recorded as earned Accruals required: interest expense, salaries expense, bad debts expense, interest earned Example: assume on January 5, a company pays $20,000 for salaries which includes $10,000 of salaries for December Adjustment required on December 31: Dr Salaries Expense 10,000 Cr Salaries Payable ,000 LO5 Copyright © John Wiley & Sons Canada, Ltd.
Adjusting Entries for Estimated ItemsBad Debts Expenses relating to impaired accounts receivable estimated in the period and relating to revenue that has been earned Investments – Fair Value Adjustments For certain categories of investments, an unrealized gain or loss must be recorded in the statement of comprehensive income Adjustment made either through: Net Income, or Other Comprehensive Income LO5 Copyright © John Wiley & Sons Canada, Ltd.
