Explanation of Solution

Bond investment: Bond investments are debt securities which pay a fixed interest revenue to the investor.

Journal entry: Journal entry is a set of economic events which can be measured in monetary terms. These are recorded chronologically and systematically.

Debit and credit rules:

  • Debit an increase in asset account, increase in expense account, decrease in liability account, and decrease in stockholders’ equity accounts.
  • Credit decrease in asset account, increase in revenue account, increase in liability account, and increase in stockholders’ equity accounts.

(a)

Prepare journal entry for purchase of $120,000 6% bonds of County S at face value with an accrued interest for 40 days.

DateAccount Titles and ExplanationsPost. Ref.Debit ($)Credit ($)
May11Investments–County S Bonds 120,000 
  Interest Receivable 800 
           Cash  120,800
  (To record purchase of bonds for cash)   

Table (1)

  • Investments–County S Bonds is an asset account. Since bonds investments are purchased, asset value increased, and an increase in asset is debited.
  • Interest Receivable is an asset account. Since interest to be received has increased, asset value increased, and an increase in asset is debited.
  • Cash is an asset account. Since cash is paid, asset account decreased, and a decrease in asset is credited.

Working Notes:

Compute amount of interest accrued for 40 days.

Interest accrued = {Amount of debt investment × Rate of interest×Time period}``= $120,000×6%×40 days360 days= $800

(b)

Prepare journal entry to record the interest revenue received.

DateAccount Titles and ExplanationsPost. Ref.Debit ($)Credit ($)
October1Cash 3,600 
           Interest Receivable  800
           Interest Revenue  2,800
  (To record receipt of interest revenue)   

Table (2)

  • Cash is an asset account. Since cash is received, asset account increased, and an increase in asset is debited.
  • Interest Receivable is an asset account. Since interest accrued on May 11 is received, asset value decreased, and a decrease in asset is credited.
  • Interest Revenue is a revenue account. Since revenues increase equity, equity value is increased, and an increase in equity is credited.

Working Notes:

Compute amount of interest received from County S bonds.

Interest received = {Amount of debt investment × Rate of interest×Time period}= $120,000×6%×612= $3,600

(c)

Prepare journal entry for $30,000 bonds sold at 99%, with an accrued interest of $150 and a brokerage of $100
