A.

To determine

Adjusting entries:

Adjusting entries refers to the entries that are made at the end of an accounting period in accordance with revenue recognition principle, and expenses recognition principle.  All adjusting entries affect at least one income statement account (revenue or expense), and one balance sheet account (asset or liability).

Rules of Debit and Credit:

Following rules are followed for debiting and crediting different accounts while they occur in business transactions:

  • Debit, all increase in assets, expenses and dividends, all decrease in liabilities, revenues and stockholders’ equities.
  • Credit, all increase in liabilities, revenues, and stockholders’ equities, all decrease in assets, expenses.

Accrual basis of accounting:

Accrual basis of accounting refers to recognizing the financial transactions during the period in which the event occurs, even if the cash is not exchanged.

Income statement:

This is the financial statement of a company which shows all the revenues earned and expenses incurred by the company over a period of time.

Balance sheet:

This financial statement reports a company’s resources (assets) and claims of creditors (liabilities) and stockholders (stockholders’ equity) over those resources, on a specific date. The resources of the company are assets which include money contributed by stockholders and creditors. Hence, the main elements of the balance sheet are assets, liabilities, and stockholders’ equity.

To prepare: The adjusting entries in the books of Company IR at the end of the year.

Explanation of Solution

An adjusting entry for Supplies expenses:

In this case, Company IR recognized the supplies expenses at the end of the year. So, the necessary adjusting entry that the Company IR should record to recognize the supplies expense is as follows:

Date Description

Post

Ref.

Debit ($) Credit ($)
November 30 Supplies expenses  (1)   2,620  
          Supplies     2,620
  (To record the supplies expenses incurred at the end of the year)      
     

Table (1)

Working note:

Calculate the value of supplies expense

Suppliesexpense=(Theamountofsuppliesbegining of the year)(Theamountofsuppliesonhandattheendofthe year)=($3,170$550)=$2,620 (1)

  • Supplies expense decreased the value of stockholders’ equity by $2,620; hence debit the supplies expenses for $2,620.
  • Supplies are an asset, and it decreased the value of asset by $2,620, hence credit the supplies for $2,620.  

An adjusting entry for depreciation expenses:

In this case, Company IR recognized the depreciation expenses at the end of the year. So, the necessary adjusting entry that the Company IR should record to recognize the accrued expense is as follows:

Date Description

Post

Ref.

Debit ($) Credit ($)
November 30 Depreciation expenses   1,675  
          Accumulated depreciation-Equipment     1,675
  (To record the depreciation expenses incurred at the end of the year)      
     

Table (2)

  • Depreciation expense decreased the value of stockholders’ equity by $1,675; hence debit the depreciation expenses for $1,675.
  • Accumulated depreciation is a contra-asset account, and it decreased the value of asset by $1,675, hence credit the accumulated depreciation for $1,675.  

An adjusting entry for rent expenses:

In this case, Company IR recognized the rent expenses at the end of the year. So, the necessary adjusting entry that the Company IR should record to recognize the prepaid expense is as follows:

Date Description

Post

Ref.

Debit ($) Credit ($)
November 30 Rent expenses   8,500  
          Prepaid rent     8,500
  (To record the rent expenses incurred at the end of the year)      
     

Table (3)

  • Rent expense decreased the value of stockholders’ equity by $8,500; hence debit the rent expenses for $8,500.
  • Prepaid rent is an asset, and it decreased the value of asset by $6,000, hence credit the prepaid rent for $8,500

B.

To determine
The effects on the income statement, if adjusting entries are not recorded.

C.

To determine
The effects on the balance sheet, if adjusting entries are not recorded.

D.

To determine
