## CHAPTER Learning OBJECTIVES

1. ** Prepare a worksheet. **The steps in preparing a worksheet follows. (a) Prepare a trial balance on the worksheet, (b) Enter the adjustments in the adjustments columns, (c) Enter adjusted balances in the adjusted trial balance columns, (d) Extend adjusted trial balance amounts to appropriate financial statement columns, and (e) Total the statement columns, compute net income (or net loss), and complete the worksheet.

2. ** Explain the process of closing the books. **Closing the books occurs at the end of an accounting period. The process is to journalize and post closing entries and then underline and balance all accounts. In closing the books, companies make separate entries to close revenues and expenses to Income Summary, Income Summary to Owner’s Capital, and Owner’s Drawings to Owner’s Capital. Only temporary accounts are closed.

3. ** Describe the content and purpose of a post-closing trial balance. **A post-closing trial balance contains the balances in permanent accounts that are carried forward to the next accounting period. The purpose of this trial balance is to prove the equality of these balances.

4. ** State the required steps in the accounting cycle. **The required steps in the accounting cycle are (1) analyze business transactions, (2) journalize the transactions, (3) post to ledger accounts, (4) prepare a trial balance, (5) journalize and post adjusting entries, (6) prepare an adjusted trial balance, (7) prepare financial statements, (8) journalize and post closing entries, and (9) prepare a post-closing trial balance.

5. ** Explain the approaches to preparing correcting entries. **One way to determine the correcting entry is to compare the incorrect entry with the correct entry. After comparison, the company makes a correcting entry to correct the accounts. An alternative to a correcting entry is to reverse the incorrect entry and then prepare the correct entry.

6. ** Identify the sections of a classified balance sheet. **A classified balance sheet categorizes assets as current assets; long-term investments; property, plant, and equipment; and intangibles. Liabilities are classified as either current or long-term. There is also an owner’s (owners’) equity section, which varies with the form of business organization.

a7. ** Prepare reversing entries. **Reversing entries are the opposite of the adjusting entries made in the preceding period. Some companies choose to make reversing entries at the beginning of a new accounting period to simplify the recording of later transactions related to the adjusting entries. In most cases, only accrued adjusting entries are reversed.
