Hello...my name is Shane and I am a Certified Public Accountant. I look forward to assisting you with your tax question.
A loan in excess of one year (in this case 5 years) would be listed on the Balance Sheet under the category Long-Term Liabilities.
If the loan is from a bank, for example such as Chase Bank, you would then list the title such as "Loan from Chase Bank" as a sub-item under the Long-Term Liabilities section.
I hope this helps to answer your question. If you would like further assistance, explanation or clarity, please let me know.
If this answers your question to your complete satisfaction, then I thank you for allowing me to assist you and I look forward to assisting you again in the future. Please provide me with positive feedback so I may receive credit for my response. If you feel exceptional service was provided, bonuses are greatly appreciated. Thank you again and I hope you have a Great Day!
Yes...when the money comes into the company (if it's cash)...you would increase the bank account of the company. Essentially you would have a journal entry of a debit to cash and a credit to "Long-Term Liabilities". This entry increases both the asset and liability account by the amount of the loan and cash deposited into the company account.
