Prepayments

Can someone nod or shake their head to this, I think I've got the double entry for a prepayment sorted.

Pay 12k for premises insurance for the year.

Credit bank with 12k for the payment
Debit premises insurance acct (p&L) with 12k

Credit premises insurance acct (p&l) with 12k
debit prepayments (balance sheet) with 12 k

then credit prepayments monthly with 1k
and debit premises insurance with 1k

Anywhere near?

    That looks fine, but instead of doing points 1 and 2, y dont you just:

    Cr Bank
    Dr Prepayments

    then monthly

    Dr Premises
    Cr Prepayments

    It just saves doing more entries than you need to
