Accounting For Loan Interest
by: Stephanie

Hi,

Thanks for the question. If you are needing to make an adjusting entry to account for the interest portion of payments paid on a loan the entry would be:

DEBIT LOAN INTEREST EXPENSE
CREDIT LOAN PAYABLE

This is if the principal and interest payments were originally posted together through the loan payable account.
