how we will account the preliminary expenses in journal and
ledger as well as balance sheet?

 Question Submitted By :: Accounting-General
I also faced this Question!!     Answer Posted By  
# 1
General entry for preliminary expense is as under:


Preliminary expenses (Dr) 1000
Cash/Bank (cr) 1000

When you write off

Expenses written off Dr (indirect exp) 500
Preliminary Expenses Cr. 500

Now at the end of year for full adjustments:

Profit & loss Dr. 500 (balance amount which is left)
Preliminary expenses Cr. 500

there are three entries which are to be passed to adjust the
preliminary expenses.

Journal : If you wish to written off your Preliminary
preliminary Exp A/c Dr. 1000
To Cash / Bank 1000
( Being Preliminary expenses written off rs 1000)
Ledger : you should have show the written off amount rs
1000 in debit side of P & L A/c

Balance Sheet : You Should have Asset side under the head
of Miscellaneous Expenditure - preliminary Exp. Written of
rs 1000

Otherwise if you not written off any amount during the
year, you should have only show the opening balance of
amount in assets siede
