Purchase price $45,000
Sales tax 2,200

Insurance on the machine
for the first year 900
Installation of machine 1,000
The machine, including sales tax, was purchased on open account, with payment due in 30 days. The other expenditures listed above were paid in cash.
What is the question?
The question is to prepare the necessary journal entries to record the above expenditures.

CR ACCOUNTS PAYABLE with the total of price + tax [because they were paid on account).
CR CASH with total of freight + installation [because they were paid cash).
Entry for non capitalized expenditures on equipment:
