1 Chapter 6: Closing Entries and the Postclosing Trial Chapter Opener: Thinking Critically Students should recognize that financial statements can be used to evaluate net profit or loss, return on investments, expense trends, or growth in company net assets. The income statement is used to measure net income or loss, while the balance sheet can be used to measure growth in assets or liabilities. Executives and managers would use financial statements to make decisions about expanding business, investing in new ventures, or hiring new employees. Fast Facts Carnival has 27,000 employees, 24,000 of these employees work on board the company s fleet of 20 cruise ships. Of the 3 million passengers Carnival serves annually, approximately 1,000,000 are seniors and 500,000 are children.

Accounting on the Job: Thinking Critically Students responses will vary. A strong understanding of accounting procedures and tasks would be beneficial to this professional. A computer science degree, along with several years of programming experience, good communication skills, and excellent problem-solving abilities would also be helpful. Accounting on the Job: Internet Application Students can go to and Job opportunities selected by students will vary. Answers should include the job title, job description, education, and skill requirements. Managerial Implications Answers will vary but could include monthly or quarterly.

30 Critical Thinking Problem 1. Strutton made the following errors preparing the closing entries: a. Accumulated Depreciation and Accounts Payable are permanent accounts that continue from accounting period to accounting period and, consequently, are not closed. b. The Drawing account is not an expense account to be closed to Income Summary but is a reduction of equity and is closed directly to the Capital account. 2. GENERAL JOURNAL PAGE 15 Dec. 31 Brenda Powell, Capital ,500 Accumulated Depreciation ,500 Accounts Payable ,000 To correct errors made in closing entries The proof of this entry is: Fees Income ,000 Expenses: Salaries Expense ,000 Supplies Expense ,000 Depreciation Expense ,400 85,400 Net Income ,600 Withdrawals (7,000) Increase in Capital ,600 Capital, Beginning ,000 Capital, Ending ,600 Capital balance per Strutton s entries.. 97,100 Less debit from correcting entry (41,500) Corrected ending Capital balance ,600 Note: It is not necessary to make an entry to correct the closing of the Drawing account to the Income Summary account. Closing the Drawing account to the Income Summary account, which in turn was closed to the Capital account, results in reducing the Capital account by the amount of the withdrawals. So, while incorrect, Strutton s entry with regard to Drawing achieves the correct end result. 3. The balance of the Capital account after closing entries have been posted must agree with the ending Capital balance as shown on the statement of owner s equity. Posting the entry closing the Income Summary account increases the Capital account by the amount of the net income (or decreases it by the amount of a net loss), while posting the entry closing the Drawing account decreases the Capital account. These postings reflect the same changes to Capital that are shown on the statement of owner s equity and on the balance sheet, and, therefore, the ending Capital amount must be the same for both. Note that the errors James made in preparing the closing entries would not be revealed by the postclosing trial balance. Since each entry Strutton made had equal debits and credits, the postclosing trial balance would be in balance. The errors would not become evident until the next year when postings were made to the Accumulated Depreciation and Accounts Payable accounts or when the ledger account balances were compared to the balance sheet amounts. 122 Chapter 6 Copyright The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc.

31 Business Connections Managerial Focus 1. No. A thorough analysis of the components of the income statement would reveal how costs directly impact net income. The balance sheet helps determine the amount of the firm s assets and its liquidity, liabilities, and equity. 2. Current assets compared with current liabilities. 3. Timely preparation of financial statements, future planning, prompt payment of debts, developing effective credit policies. 4. The income statement might help determine the adequacy of profit, how to improve revenue and hold down expenses, how to reduce expenses without decreasing revenue, and how to even out the business operating cycle. sheet data might influence decisions concerning growth of equity, the return on investment, adequacy of the firm s assets, whether collections on accounts receivable should be accelerated, and whether more capital is needed. Ethical Dilemma You should wait to verify the invoice is an actual invoice. At the end of the year Miscellaneous Expense will be closed and the $1,000 expense will be in the previous year and not given the verification it so badly needs. Streetwise 1. Answers will vary, but permanent accounts may include Cash and Cash Equivalents, Short-Term Investments, Receivables, etc. Temporary accounts include Sales, Selling and Store Operating Expenses, Interest and Investment Income. 2.
