Because Aqua Elite, Inc. is a new startup business, the
beginning balances in all the general ledger accounts are
zero to start.
n The length of the accounting periods are three months
using a fiscal calendar year. (A fiscal calendar is on a
yearly basis other than a calendar year—January 1st to
December 31st. For example, a fiscal calendar year can
be May 1, 2009, through April 30, 2010). Therefore,
posting to the general ledger, adjustments and closing
entries are made on a fiscal quarterly basis.
n Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable subsidiary
ledgers aren’t being used. Any references to invoicing,
receipts, or payments “on account” assume changes to
the running balance in the Accounts Receivable and
Accounts Payable general ledger accounts.
n Payroll calculations aren’t necessary. Assume the salary
is the gross pay with no deductions taken. Therefore, the
net pay is the same as the gross pay, requiring a simplified journal entry to record the expense.

ledger accounts if necessary.
