Chapter 07 - Accounting for Liabilities They are, therefore, a convenient source of short-term credit. Borrowers pay for this convenience with relatively high interest rates that fluctuate with market conditions. Each time you borrow on the line, it is an asset source transaction. They must repay the loan and regularly pay interest on the line of credit A business does not have to borrow on the line of credit but can when it needs to and then only pays interest if it borrows on it. Bond Liability Companies issue bond to the public (investors) to borrow larger sums of money than one financial institution would lend. Bonds are sold in $1000 increments Bond certificates state the interest rate, how often interest is paid and when the debt/bond will be paid off. Advantages of Bonds 1. This type of debt is more long term. It allows for more strategic planning for repayment. 2. Bond interest rates are usually lower than bank interest rates. Bonds are issued At face value – where the market rate is the same as the contract rate At a discount – where it is sold below face value At a premium- where it is sold above face value 3 transactions related to bonds 1. Issue the bond (borrow money) (asset source transaction) 2. Accrue interest (claims exchange) (most are semi annual interest payments) 3. Pay interest (asset use) Asset Liability Equity 1. Cash + bond payable + 2 Interest payable+ Retained earnings - Interest expense 3 Cash - Interest payable - How to issue at bond at a discount (95) of $100,000 Bond is issued at 95% of the face value (.95 * face value 100,000 = 95,000 of cash) Asset Liability Equity 1.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
