Question

The transactions that follow relate to the Danville County Comptroller’s Department over a two-year period.
Year 1
• The county appropriated $12,000 for employee education and training.
• The department signed contracts with outside consultants to conduct accounting and auditing workshops. Total cost was $10,000.
• The consultants conducted the workshops and were paid $10,000.
• The department ordered books and training materials, which it estimated would cost $1,800. As of year-end, the materials had not been received.

Year 2
• The county appropriated $13,500 for employee education and training.
• The department received and paid for the books and training materials that it ordered the previous year. Actual cost was only $1,700. The county’s accounting policies require that the books and training materials be charged as an expenditure when they are received (as opposed to being recorded as inventory and charged as an expenditure when used).
• It authorized employees to attend various conferences and training sessions. Estimated cost was $10,500.
• Employees submitted $10,800 in reimbursement requests for the conferences and training sessions they attended. The department paid them the requested amounts and at year-end did not expect to receive any additional reimbursement requests.
1. Prepare all required journal entries that would affect the expenditure subaccount “education and training,” including budgetary and closing entries. Assume that all appropriations lapse at year-end (thus, all expenditures in Year 2 would be charged against that year’s appropriation of $13,500, even if the goods and services were ordered in Year 1).
2. Indicate (specifying accounts and dollar amounts) how the transactions would be reported in the county’s general fund:
