June 2007 - Task 1.6


Need some help please if you can.

Calculate the general expenses.

Can someone explain why i am having to work it out for 2 months and not 3, also why is there an accrual? As they have already paid it for 3 months havent they, so wouldnt that be a prepayment?

    Year ending 31 march

    Electricity paid in may (at the start of a new financial year for the period 01 Feb. to 30 April.

    So the electricity payment for the period 01 Feb. to 31 March is missing (that’s why an accrual)

    So calculation

    135£ / 3= 45 £ for 2 month 90.00 Accrual

    General expense 1750£ at the end of the financial year
    Add the missing payment for 1 Feb. to 31 March 90


    I hope this helps
