2. Purchase land for $24,000. A note payable is signed for the full amount.
3. Purchase storage container equipment for $9,000 cash.
4. Hire three employees for $3,000 per month.
5. Receive cash of $13,000 in rental fees for the current month.
6. Purchase office supplies for $3,000 on account.
7. Pay employees $9,000 for the first month’s salaries.

1. Record each transaction. Green Wave uses the following accounts: Cash, Supplies, Land, Equipment, Common Stock, Accounts Payable, Notes Payable, Service Revenue, and Salaries Expense.
2. Post each transaction to T-accounts and compute the ending balance of each account. Since this is the first month of operations, all T-accounts have a beginning balance of zero.
3. After calculating the ending balance of each account, prepare a trial balance.
