Step by Step Solution

Impact on Income Statement

Accrued salaries used are the part of the expenses of the business, hence not recording the adjusting entries will reduce the salaries expense and therefore result in increase in net income.

Impact on Balance Sheet

Accrued salaries expense should be included in the current salaries expense, not recording adjusting entries will decrease the salaries payable balance in liability section. As net income is increases, it will also increase equity (Retained earnings).
