    • D.

      $46,865 as a current liability

    Correct Answer
    B. $46,538 as a current liability
    Explanation
    The payables ledger balance should be reported as a current liability because it represents the amount owed by the company to its creditors. This balance includes the total of the list of balances, which is $46,538 credit, and it indicates the amount that the company needs to pay to its suppliers and vendors. As a liability, this amount is considered a current liability because it is expected to be paid within the next accounting period. Therefore, the correct answer is $46,538 as a current liability.

    Correct Answer
    D. To confirm the accuracy of postings
    Explanation
    Preparing a receivables ledger reconciliation is done to confirm the accuracy of postings.

Any discrepancies found during this reconciliation process can indicate errors in recording transactions or posting entries. By confirming the accuracy of postings, businesses can ensure that their financial records are reliable and provide an accurate representation of their receivables.

    Norma’s trial balance includes a suspense account with a credit balance of $280. She has discovered that a supplier’s invoice for $140 was entered twice in the purchase day book.    What is the balance on the suspense account after the error is corrected?

    • A.

    • C.

      $280 credit

    • D.

      $420 credit

    Correct Answer
    C. $280 credit
    Explanation
    After the error is corrected, the balance on the suspense account will remain at $280 credit. This is because the duplicate entry of the supplier's invoice for $140 was already included in the initial credit balance of $280. Therefore, correcting the error does not change the balance on the suspense account.

    The total of the balances on the individual suppliers accounts in Arnold’s payables ledger is $81,649. The balance on the payables control account in his general ledger is $76,961. He has discovered that an invoice for $4,688 has been posted twice to the correct supplier’s account and that payments totaling $1,606 which he made by standing order have been omitted from his records.    What amount should be reported in Arnold’s balance sheet for trade payables?

    • A.

      $72,273

    • B.

      $75,355

    • C.

      $76,961

    • D.

      $81,649

    Correct Answer
    B. $75,355
    Explanation
    Arnold's balance sheet for trade payables should report an amount of $75,355. This is calculated by subtracting the amount of the duplicate invoice ($4,688) and adding the omitted payments ($1,606) to the balance on the payables control account ($76,961). Therefore, the correct amount to be reported is $76,961 - $4,688 + $1,606 = $75,355.
