Step by step through the accounting cycle: Write journal entries for each transaction listed above on notebook paper: This is your General Journal. Post each transaction to the ledger checking off each entry as you enter it into the ledger. After all entries are posted then strike a balance in each account. Each one should have its normal balance. Prepare an unadjusted trial balance on the worksheet provided to test DR = CR (follow model in Chapter 4 or in lecture notes) recording only the DR or CR balances for each account. If DR don t = CR find your errors. This should total $128153 and the Cash balance should be $5103. Prepare adjusting entries in the General Journal at the end of January. Note that the problem is based on the actual calendar for January 2009. Some useful information follows: 1) Depreciation is for the month is $433. 2) Unearned Fees at January 31 are $10000. 3) Supplies on hand at the end of January total $2200. 4) Prepaid Insurance balance includes a policy that expires $400 per month. 5) Record accrued salaries for one last week of January 31. 6) Record the expiration of one month of insurance on the new policy. 7) Accrue interest on the note payable of $250. 8) Adjust for expired rent 9) Adjust for advertising services received. Be sure to SHOW CALCULATIONS for these!!! Round to nearest dollar! Record the adjusting entries in the adjustments columns on the worksheet and also post them to the General Ledger. Strike new balances in the accounts in the GL. Then add/subtract the adjustments as appropriate from the unadjusted trial balance to the adjusted trial balance (are these amounts the same as the balances you found in the ledger in part f.?) Follow model provided in the text. Test to see if DR = CR in the Adjusted Trial Balance columns on the worksheet. If not find your errors. Sort amounts out from the adjusted TB to appropriate columns (Income Statement and Balance Sheet) on the worksheet. Find balances in each column. Do DR = CR here? And why not However is the difference between the two sets of columns the same? (It should be equal to $9717). Prepare three financial statements: Income Statement of Owner s Equity and Balance Sheet in GOOD FORM. Use examples in the textbook. Now write all necessary closing entries in your General Journal and post them to the General Ledger. Finally prepare a Post Closing Trial Balance (see Blackboard Course Materials for an example) to test the accuracy of the journalizing/posting of the closing entries.
