On 6 April, the company received a 90-day, 10% acceptance covering the amount owing by F. French, the acceptor, for $5,500. What would go in the general journal to record receipt of bill?
A company's Accounts Receivable account is presented on the balance sheet as a current asset. The Accounts Receivable balance reflects the amount of money owed to the company by its customers for sales in the regular course of business.
Answer and Explanation:
In the general journal, we need to credit accounts receivable because it is being covered by the acceptance.
- In addition, we need to debit Bills Receivable since the bill covers the amount of the receivable.
