Adjustments

An adjustment allows you full flexibility in setting up the entry. You can specify two or more accounts, and indicate the debit and credit values specifically for each. Setting up debits and credits can be a little confusing so if you are not sure please read the following article to learn more about them:

All you need to do is make sure debits = credits. You can debit and credit as many accounts as you like.

Example 1 - Debiting and crediting two accounts

Let's say that you needed to depreciate some assets. To depreciate items found in the Furniture & Equipment account by $500 for the 2014 fiscal year you would enter:

  • Date: 2014-12-31
  • Account: Furniture & Equipment, Credit: 500
  • Account: Depreciation Expense, Debit: 500

What this does is take decrease the company's assets by $500 (by taking $500 out from the Furniture & Equipment account) and increase the company's expenses (by adding $500 to the Depreciation Expense).

The important part is that debits = credits.

Example 2 - Debiting and crediting three accounts

Let's say you wanted to do a journal entry for a loan payment on December 1, 2014, which includes taking from the bank ($250) to pay for the principal ($200) and interest ($50) on a loan. The following would be entered:

  • Date: 2014-12-01
  • Account: Bank Account, Credit: 250
  • Account: Business Loan, Debit: 200
  • Account: Bank Charges & Interest Expense, Debit: 50

What this transaction is doing is decreasing the money in the bank by $250, reducing the loan owed by $200, and increasing the interest expense by $50.

Again, debits = credits.
