# Account Question - Adjusting Entry: Midshipmen Company borrows $15,000 from Falcon Co #### darkmacer005 ##### New member *Help* Simple Accounting Question - Adjusting Entry I am currently stuck as to how I set up my adjusting entry. Information relevant to the question: Midshipmen Company borrows$15,000 from Falcon Company on July 1, 2018. Midshipmen repays the amount borrowed and pays interest of 12% (1%/month) on June 30, 2019.

Question Part 1:

• Record the lending for Falcon on July 1, 2018.

• The above is my answer (which is correct).
• However, it is the second part of the question that I am having trouble with: how do I set up the adjusting entry - what two accounts do I use?
• Question Part 2:
• Record the adjusting entry for Falcon on December 31, 2018.

What I put in red is what was marked incorrect. I am not sure what accounts I am supposed to be using for the adjusting entry. I can only use from the following selection:

Accounts payable
Accounts receivable
Accumulated depreciation
Buildings
cash
common stock
Deferred revenue
Delivery expense
Depreciation expense
Dividends
Equipment
Income tax expense
Insurance expense
Interest payable
Interest receivable
Interest revenue
Inventory
Land
Legal fees expense
Notes payable
Notes receivable
Prepaid insurance
Prepaid rent
Repairs and maintenance expense
Retained earnings
Salaries expense
Salaries payable
Sales revenue
Service fee expense
Service revenue
Supplies
Supplies expense
Utilities expense
Utilities payable

make an entry to "interest payable" and to
"interest expense"
But, wouldn't "interest expense" be used as an entry IF this question was in regards to the firm that is BORROWING the money, not lending out? Since this question is being seen through the eyes of the lender, would the first account be "interest receivable" and the second account be "interest revenue, because the first account would be increasing the "asset" side of the accounting equation whereas the second account would be decreasing the "stockholders' equity" side?
Nice eye by the way! I forgot to add "interest expense"

I'm confused...
2nd post shows "Denis said"; but all my posts disappeared in 2018.

Markbot, are you asking me something related to that?

You do seem a bit confused; I didn't ask you anything.
