    The importance of knowing how to adjust entries is to ensure that the revenue and matching principles are followed (Kimmel, Weygandt, & Kieso, 2009). It is necessary because when a trial balance is prepared, the information may not be current. The adjustments need to be made when financial statements are prepared because it is counter-productive to record some events on a daily basis. The entries affected by adjusting entries are prepaid expenses, insurance, depreciation, and supplies (Kimmel, Weygandt, & Kieso, 2009).…

    Many medical organizations with average patient accounts receivable that are greater than a specified amount, not including the allowance, must compute and record an Allowance for Doubtful Accounts on their balance sheet. This accounts receivable balance should be re-evaluated on an annual basis to determine reporting status. Often, it is not known which specific accounts receivable invoices will be uncollectible. An allowance is therefore established to estimate the value of those receivables believed to be uncollectible. This entry should be “recorded so the income statement and balance sheet are fairly stated at the amount expected to be collected in receivables, thus satisfying the matching principle. The entry creates a contra accounts receivable balance. When netted against the gross total of accounts receivable, the true value of the receivables is reported” (FMS,…
