Hello in this lecture we’re going to create the liability section of the balance sheet. In prior lectures, we have taken a look at the assets in terms of first current assets and then property, plant and equipment and given us the total assets at that time, then we are now going to move on to liabilities, and that will be part of the second part of the balance sheet meaning it’ll then sum up to total liabilities and owner’s equity. We are going to be taking this information of course from the adjusted trial balance the adjusted trial balance in the format of debits and credits, we are now formatting it in the format of the accounting equation. Still the double entry accounting system just in two different formats, just reshuffling the puzzles so that different readers can understand the financial statements even though they don’t understand debits and credits.
So there’s gonna be problems later on where they’ll basically say, you know, you got to pay off something on account and you have to assume that the prior transaction took place. You got to kind of know in your mind how these things are related. So if we go through them by cycle that will help to achieve that goal. first transaction, we’re going to say purchase supplies on account. If we go through our list of questions, we’re going to say is cash affected? In this case? No, because we purchased it on account, then we’re going to ask what we’ve received, in this case supplies. So we got supplies, that is here, it’s going to be an asset. Therefore the asset is going to go up because we got more of them, then the only question is, what is the other account? It’s not a decrease to cash because we didn’t pay cash. And therefore we must be doing something somewhere else. That will be accounts payable, so accounts payable is going to increase by the same amount.
