Homework Help: accounting

Posted by Anonymous on Friday, October 14, 2011 at 9:46am.

Jane Doe of Creative Marketing was recording transactions into the accounting records to prepare financial statements for the bank in a loan application. Her expenses were higher than anticipated and she was concerned about the effects on net income. As she was recording $3,000 in legal fees she decided to debit dividends and credit cash. She reasoned this would have the same affect on retained earnings as the proper journal entry but would not affect net income and that it didn't matter anyway as long as the transaction was recorded somewhere.

Consider the proper journal entry that Jane should have made and answer the following:

Do you agree that it doesn't really matter where the transaction is recorded?
How is the matching principle affected by her decision?
As long as Jane owns all of the stock of Creative Marketing does she still have an ethical responsibility to record each business transaction properly?
