Dropbox 1 Prepare a Balance Sheet We’ll start with a Balance Sheet in this class for week 1 Go to Homework Manager and work the practice problem a couple of times. Then work the Graded problem and submit it for grading. Submit the Graded assignment by the due date. For this assignment you will be given a random set of data and you will have to organize it into the form and format of a Balance Sheet.

Slide 4: 

Trial Balance For this tutorial we’ll start with a Trial Balance. This will help set the stage for our study of double-entry accounting over the next 3 weeks. A Trial Balance is a listing of all the accounts in an accounting system, and their balance as of a certain date. The date is the end of the year for annual statements, or the last day of a month for monthly statements.

Slide 5: 

Trial Balance Trial Balance A Trial Balance is a list of all the accounts and their balances. Accountants usually start with a Trial Balance, and prepare financial statements from that. All accounts will be used for this assignment, and they are all Balance Sheet accounts.

Slide 6: 

The Report Heading Report Heading Every financial report starts with a heading. Even hand-prepared working papers should include a proper heading, and be dated and initialed by the person doing the work A report heading must have the following elements: Company name Report title Report date

Slide 7: 

Asset Accounts Asset Accounts The Asset accounts are listed first in a Trial Balance, starting with Cash. They all have Debit balances. Total Assets = $ 93,500

Slide 8: 

Liability Accounts Liability Accounts The Liability accounts have Credit balances. They represent debts of the company. Many of the account titles end with the word “payable”. Total Liabilities = $ 40,750

Slide 9: 

Stockholders’ Equity Accounts Stockholders’ Equity Accounts The Stockholders’ Equity accounts have Credit balances. They represent the investor’s financial interest in the company. Total Stockholders’ Equity = $ 52,750

Slide 10: 

Preparing a Balance Sheet Heading: We start with the heading for a Balance Sheet. This is a Balance Sheet, not a Trial Balance, so we have to use the appropriate report title.

Slide 11: 

Balance Sheet Assets: We can list the asset accounts in the same order as on the Trial Balance. At this point we lose the distinction between Debits and Credits.

Slide 12: 

Balance Sheet Liabilities: We can list the liability accounts in the same order as on the Trial Balance. We also include a subtotal for Liabilities. This is a “significant subtotal” for investors.

Slide 13: 

Balance Sheet Stockholders’ Equity: There are only a few accounts in this section. We also include a subtotal for this section.

Slide 14: 

Balance Sheet The Accounting Equation Assets = Liabilities + Stockholders’ Equity The Balance Sheet is in balance.
