The additional data needed to develop the payroll and adjusting entries at June 30 areas follows:

a. The long-term debt is payable in annual installments of $39,600, with the next installment due on July 31. On that date, Prompt Ship will also pay one year’s interest at 10%. Interest was paid on July 31 of the preceding year. Make the adjusting entry to accrue interest expense at year-end.

b. Gross unpaid salaries for the last payroll of the fiscal year were $4,800. Assume that employee income taxes withheld are $920 and that all earnings are subject to OASDI.

c. Record the associated employer taxes payable for the last payroll of the fiscal year,$4,800. Assume that the earnings are not subject to unemployment compensation taxes

d. On February 1, the company collected one year’s rent of $5,400 in advance.


1. Using T-accounts, open the listed accounts and insert the unadjusted June 30balances.

2. Journalize and post the June 30 payroll and adjusting entries to the accounts thatyou opened. Identify each adjusting entry by letter. Round to the nearest dollar.

3. Prepare the current liabilities section of the balance sheet at June 30, 2018.
