  • so if the wages is X for one week, then in the income statement, expenses of wages is 4X+X*2/7, and X*2/7 is account payable in liabilities in balance sheet

  • If the total wages for one week is X, then the two day wages expense and payable is X divided by 7 times 2.

  • Yes, you are right. wages expense is in the income statement debit side if it's in the worksheet. Then , credit side of balance sheet is the wages payable. Adjusting column of the worksheet, should be shown also the amounts of wages expense in the debit side and credit side for the wages payable.
