Explanation of Solution

Common stock: These are the ordinary shares that a corporation issues to the investors in order to raise funds. In return, the investors receive a share of profit from the profits earned by the corporation in the form of dividend.

Preferred stock: The stock that provides a fixed amount of return (dividend) to its stockholder before paying dividends to common stockholders is referred as preferred stock.

Par value: It refers to the value of a stock that is stated by the corporation’s charter. It is also known as face value of a stock.

Issue of common stock for non cash assets or services: Corporations often issue common stock for the services received from attorneys or consultants as compensation, or for the purchase of non cash assets such as land, buildings, or equipment.

Journalize the issuance of the stock in exchange for land and a building on May 11.

Description:

  • Land and building is an asset account. Both are acquired upon stock issuance. Therefore, debit Land and building account with the value of its purchase.
  • Common Stock is a stockholders’ equity account and the amount is increased due to issuance of common stock. Therefore, credit Common Stock account with the value of common stock.
  • Paid-in Capital in Excess of Par Value is a stockholders’ equity account and the amount is increased due to increase in capital. Therefore, credit Paid-in Capital in Excess of Par Value account with the excess value of land and building over the common stock value.
