Journal Entry - Cash Downpayment Plus Balance Owing
by: Anonymous

Acquired office equipment from Tower company for $6,200. Made a cash downpayment of $1,500. Balance to be paid within 30 days...?

So this is basically two transactions in one - part cash and part credit.

When we purchase the office equipment we record the following:

Dr Office equipment (asset) $6,200
Cr Bank/cash $1,500
Cr Creditors (liability) $4,700 ($6,200 - $1,500)

This means we are recording the full value of the office equipment asset in our records when we buy it. And we record the amount paid in cash and the amount owing (creditors).

When we pay off the balance owing we record:

Dr Creditors (liability) $4,700
Cr Bank/cash $4,700

We are thus cancelling out the debt owing and recording that this was paid through bank/cash decreasing.

Hope that makes sense. All the best!

How to make separate journal entries for:

Purchased merchandise on June 10 from a company, FOB shipping point, terms 2/10, n/30 and paid freight cost of $400 on June 11.

Damaged goods totaling $300 are returned for credit on June 12. The fair value of these goods is $70.

On June 19, the company pays the debt in full less the purchase discount.

Both companies use perpetual inventory systems.

Digital Asset Subscription Entry
by: Anonymous

Hello I am a Graphic Designer and I keep my own books. I have a digital subscription for digital assets that may be used in a project for clients.

Do I put this expense in as a Subscription, Supplies or another category?

Hi graphic designer,

If you pay on a monthly or other regular basis for the subscription then you would probably just count it as an expense as it is simply a regular cost of doing business.

If you paid a lump sum upfront for the digital asset subscription and it will give your business lasting benefits into the future then you could classify this as an asset.

However, if you paid a lump sum upfront and do not see it providing lasting benefits into the future then you would classify it as an expense.

I would recommend to classify it as expense (if you can) as this would then be tax-deductible and could save you a bit on tax.
