h. Incurred $ 20,000 in utility expenses during the year, of which $ 15,000 was paid in cash and the rest owed on account.
For each of the transactions, prepare accrual basis journal entries and determine whether the accounting equation remains in balance and debits equal credits after each entry. Also, calculate the company’s preliminary net income.
