In the opening balance of general journal, the balance bank account of say $30,000, should that be in debit or credit in my accounting and why?

Hello Teng,

Thanks for your inquiry.

The bank balance of $30,000 should show in the debit column as asset accounts are debit accounts.

Trial balance failed to agree and the difference of £680 is recorded in the credit side of a Suspence acc. On investigation the following errors are discovered:

1. A purchase inv for £157 had been postedto J W Day & Sons in error. The goods have be bought from Days Supplies.

2. The Sales Day Book has been overcast by £220.

3. A cheque payment for repairs to the office building of £41 had been entered in the accounts as £14.

4. A payment by cheque of £50 to A Biggs has been debited in the cash book and credited to A Biggs Acc.

5. The purchase of a motor vehicle costing £5600 has been entered correctly into the bank account but debited to the motor vehicles account as £6500.

6. A credit sale of £180 had not been entered into the accounts.

I need details of a suspense acc showing the original opening balance and the entries that must be made to clear the account.

Many thanks.

Journal Entry Recording

When recording daily pay outs in the journal entry, what account would you credit against these type of expenses?

Thank you for your journal entry recording question. A typical journal entry for recording expenses would be to debit the expense and credit the bank account that is being used to pay for the expense.

Journal Entry For Redemption Of Product Certificate

by Sue P
(Lancaster, PA)

I am self-employed and work on commission as a distributor. Booking that commission is straight forward. My question is: They also issue product certificates (PCs) that we can redeem for products. We only pay shipping. The PCs have no cash value in reality.

If not used by their expiration date, they are unusable. However, if I redeem them, I would need to reflect that in my business's books but I am unsure how. For example, I use PCs to purchase a $500 item. I have no outlay of cash except for the $30 shipping fee. How would I book this?
