Feb 8 Completing the Accounting Cycle  Requires: o Adjusting journal entries o Preparation of financial statements from the adjusted accounts o Closing the temporary accounts Accrual v. Cash Basis of Accounting  Cash basis accounting- revenue is recorded when cash is received, regardless of when it is actually earned (violated marching principle and revenue recognition principle)  Accrual basis accounting-required by GAAP; transactions are recorded when they occur; superior to cash basis accounting because it links income measurement to selling Adjusting Journal Entries  All adjusting entries will affect at least one income statement account and one balance sheet account  Cash is never affected by adjustments  Revenue is normal credit balance, expense is normal credit balance  Accrued revenues- previously unrecorded revenues that have been earned,, but not received (debit=receivable, credit=revenue)  Accrued expenses- previously unrecorded expenses that have been incurred, but not paid (debit=expense, credit=payable)  Deferred revenues- liabilities arising from the receipt of unearned revenue (debit=unearned revenue, credit=revenue)  Deferred expenses- assets arising from a prepaid expense (debit=expense, credit=asset or contra-asset) Example 1: Porter Properties, Inc. rented office space to Tiger Travel Agency on November 1, 2013 for $5,000 per month.
