Accounting Entry

"Received $2000 from a client for financial services to be rendered next year."

I am supposed to record the general journal entry for this. Would it be this:

Cash $2000
A/R $2000

or what? This entry is for the last day of the fiscal year, too. Please help me, thanks :)


The credit should be for some kind of unearned income account. The debit is for cash.
