Deposits on Assets
by Ann Marie
I just want to confirm that I am posting the transactions correctly.
A new asset was ordered in December 2010 and delivery will be sometime in June 2011. A deposit was required in order to place the order and paid in December 2010.
I set up a deposit-asset account and posted the deposit to that account. Did I do this correctly?
Hi Ann Marie,
You sure did! Whoop Whoop :0)
If it makes you more comfortable, you can find my example of journal entries for a deposit
at Common Bookkeeping Entries
If your deposit account is a current asset, your entry is definitely okay ... particularly if there is a year-end prior to receiving the asset.P.S.
