Full accounting cycle comprehensive corporate problem where we will enter journal entries into the general journal related to setting up a corporation and to the first month of operations.
We will enter the normal financial transaction for a month of operations, recording the debits and credits, or journalizing the financial transactions in the general journal.
We will perform these tasks using preformatted Excel worksheets. Even though this is a comprehensive problem, each new step will have a new Excel worksheet so that we can jump forward or go back and rework any component of the comprehensive problem.
Each new step in the process will include an Excel worksheet with at least two tabs, one demonstrating the completed task, and one with a preformatted worksheet to complete the task in a step by step format along with instructional videos.
Once we have journalized the journal entries, we will post them to the general ledger and then create a trial balance from the general ledger.
After completing the accounting transactions for the month, we will enter adjusting journal entries for the month, using an adjusting entry worksheet, the result being an adjusted trial balance.
We will use the adjusted trial balance to create the financial statements, to create the balance sheet, income statement, and statement of shareholders’ equity.
Finally, we will enter the closing entries to prepare for the next accounting period, the next month of operations. We will use a four-step closing process.
