    The principle - substance over form. The company is obtaining a loan facility from the third party to pay for an insurance expense.

    Dr Insurance expense, Cr Third party, with the insurance value.

    Dr Interest expense, Cr Third party, with the cost of the facility monthly or in total at year-end.

    Dr Third party, Cr Liabilities (remember to split liabilities into current and long-term at year end), with monthly payments or in total at year-end.

    Dear Mskaat,

    Thank you very much for your explanation. This is very helpful.
    Substance over form - I will remember this for future.

    Kind Regards
