d.) Long term notes people \$2000, current portion of long-term notes payable \$2000

how do you calculate and record this????

When a long term note payable is issued, the entry will be:

Cash Dr \$10,000

To Long term note payable. \$10,000

(To record issue of long term note payable)

The current portion of long term debt is the unpaid principal amount which is accrued in a company's operating cycle and has to be paid within 12 months. Here, the 1st \$2,000 installment will be paid in the 12 months and hence, is the current portion of long-term notes payable.

The entry that need to be made at July 1, 2013 to re-classify the current portion of the note is:

Long term notes people Dr. \$2000

To Current portion of long-term notes payable    \$2000

(To record the re-classification of the current portion of the note)

Answer is d.) Long term notes people \$2000, current portion of long-term notes payable \$2000
