Expert Solution
To determine

Bonds: Bonds are long-term promissory notes that are represented by a company while borrowing money from investors to raise fund for financing the operations.

Bonds Payable: Bonds payable are referred to long-term debts of the business, issued to various lenders known as bondholders, generally in multiples of $1,000 per bond, to raise fund for financing the operations.

To prepare:

  • Journal entry to record issuance of the bonds for cash at face amount.
  • Journal entry to record the payment of interest on the bonds on September 1.
  • The redemption of the bonds.

Explanation of Solution

Prepare journal entry for issuance of bonds at face amount on March 1.

Date Accounts and Explanation Post Ref Debit ($) Credit ($)
March 1, 20Y1 Cash 22,000,000
Bonds Payable 22,000,000
(To record the issuance of bonds payable at face value)

Table (1)

  • Cash is an asset and it is increased. So, debit it by $22,000,000.
  • Bonds payable is a liability and it is increased. So, credit it by $22,000,000.

Prepare journal entry for interest payment on September 1.

Date Accounts and Explanation Post Ref Debit ($) Credit ($)
September 1, 20Y1 Interest Expense (1) 770,000
Cash 770,000
(To record the payment of semiannual interest)

Table (2)

Working note:

Interest expense = Bonds payable×interest rate×Time periods                          = $22,000,000×7%×612                          = $770,000 (1)

  • Interest expense is an expense and it decreases the equity value. So, debit it by $770,000.
  • Cash is an asset and it is decreased
