Chapter 10 Reporting and analyzing Liabilities
Financial liability - contractual obligations to pay cash in the future
o Unearned revenue is not a financial liability while most of other liabilities are
financial liabilities
Paying an account payable by issuing a note payable would be settling a liability with a
liability
Operating Line of Credit
Companies may use operating line of credit to manage temporary cash shortfalls
A floating (variable) interest rate is not fixed and based on prime borrowing rate
Collateral (security) is usually required by banks as protection against possible default on
the loan by borrower
Line of credit borrowings are on short-term basis and are repayable immediately upon
request
o Payment is rarely demanded without notice
o Borrowing from line of credit is easy to administer because it is to a certain limit
Sales Taxes
For retailers, sales tax is not recorded until revenue is earned
Amount of sales is recorded separately by crediting two accounts, sales and sales tax
payable
o You would then debit cash
Property Taxes
Taxes charged by the municipal and provincial governments
Calculated at a specific rate
Recorded by debiting property tax expense and crediting property tax payable
o Modified by amounts of months passed

Employer’s incur 3 types of liabilities as they pay their employees for performing
services (salary related):
o The amount owed to employees
o Employee payroll deductions
o Employer payroll obligations

o Gross pay is the first type of liabilities that the employers incur
Second type of liability:

employees gross pay
