Apr. 1 Cash 255,000

Common Stock 225,000

(15,000 shares x $17 per share = 255,000)

 

June 15 Dividends 110,000

Dividends Payable 110,000

((95,000 shares + 15,000 shares) x $1 per share = 110,000)

 

July 10 Dividends Payable 110,000

Cash 110,000

 

Dec. 1 Cash 38,000

Common Stock 38,000

 

Dec. 15 Dividends 134,400

Dividends Payable 134,400

((110,000 shares + 2,000 shares) x $1 per share = 134,400)

 

Dividends payable should be shown in the current liabilities portion of the balance sheet. Dividends should be closed to retained earnings account, which results in reduced retained earnings balance.
