Using owner's money to pay business utility bills
Q: If the owner pays some phone and electricity bills for home RM215 and office RM323 by using her saving money, what would the double entry be?
Is this entry correct?
Dr Utility Expenses RM323
Cr Owners Capital RM323
Thank you in advance.
A: Yes, the entry above is correct.
The saving money is personal money, not business money. By paying for the business expense ("office") using personal money, she is essentially "investing" more money in business operations, which is exactly what capital is.
Well done Seema!
