2. Doesn’t say cash… so can’t recognize it for cash basis, for accrual
u do recognize it
3. You recognize the $1000 for COGS when you pay the $2000 you
recognize it for cash basis don’t need to do anything for accrual
basis- you debit inventory 3000, CR cash 1000 and AP-so nothing
here
4. Is it an expense- yes for cash basis and accrual. Under cash basis
we recognize wages because we pay. Under accrual we don’t care
about cash- did we use the service? Yes, because employee worked
for the month.
5. Under accrual basis acctg if you use, expense. But under cash= did
I pay or not? No they didn’t pay. So not an expense in Marrch…
itll be a expense in April.
6. Under accrual can’t recognize revenue, under cash you can
