On January 2, 2015, Larkspur Corporation issued \$1,400,000 of 10% bonds at 96 due December 31, 2024. Interest on the bonds is payable annually each December 31. The discount on the bonds is also being amortized on a straight-line basis over the 10 years. (Straight-line is not materially different in effect from the preferable “interest method.”)

The bonds are callable at 101 (i.e., at 101% of face amount), and on January 2, 2020, Larkspur called \$840,000 face amount of the bonds and redeemed them.

Ignoring income taxes, compute the amount of loss, if any, to be recognized by Larkspur as a result of retiring the \$840,000 of bonds in 2020. (Round answer to 0 decimal places, e.g. 38,548.)

 Loss on redemption \$enter a dollar amount of loss on redemption rounded to 0 decimal places

Prepare the journal entry to record the redemption. (Round answers to 0 decimal places, e.g. 38,548. If no entry is required, select "No Entry" for the account titles and enter 0 for the amounts. Credit account titles are automatically indented when amount is entered. Do not indent manually.)

Issue price = 1400000*.96 = 1344000

Discount on bonds payable = 1400000-1344000 = 56000

Unamortized discount = 56000/2 = 28000

Carrying value = 1344000+28000 = 1372000

a) Carrying value of 840000 bonds = 1372000/1400000*840000 = 823200

Redemption value = 840000*1.01 = 848400

Loss on redemption = 823200-848400 = -25200
