Because Aqua Elite, Inc. is a new startup business, the beginning

Customer Question

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.
n Use the information in the Chart of Accounts that’s provided after the Requirements section below. Add general
ledger accounts if necessary.
Requirements
1. Journalize the transactions. Omit explanations.
2. Post the transactions to the general ledger, creating new
ledger accounts as necessary. Calculate the new general

d. Services performed but unbilled, $1,900.
e. Accrued salaries, $675.
f. Unearned service revenue earned as of July 31, $800.
5. Prepare an adjusted trial balance for Aqua Elite, Inc., at
