Hi everyone

I really can not get my head around Prepayments

I am hoping someone can help me because I know the correct answer but can not get to the figures:-

My company is VAT registered and the year end is 30th  Sept

I pay for a software licence for a year at a time and last paid on 31st Dec at a net cost of £2700, the balance on this account is currently £5380, what will the cost of the software licence be charged to the profit & loos account for the year.

Any help would be much appreciated in a simple format please - thank you

Hi Emma

I still hate prepayments but i will try and explain to you:-

BUSINESS IS VAT REGISTERD AND FINANCIAL YEAR ENDS ON 30TH SEPT.

The companyt pay for a software license for a year at a time, last paid for some on 31st December at a net cost of £2700.  The balance on this account is currently showing £5380 - what will be the cost of the software licence that will be charged to the profit and loss account for the year.

SO 

take Balance on account of £5380 less paid to date of £2700 leaves £2680

 

take the £2700 and divide by 12 (as for a year) = £225 month

we have paid 9 months in financial year Jan - Sept = £225 x 9 = £2025

£2025 plus the balance above of £2680 = £4705

 

hope this is of some help but feel free to contact me - mandy.shelford@hardysherwood.com

 

good luck x
