Income and Expenditure Account

Hi Guys,

Please could someone help on the following?

Im trying to prepare an income and expenditure account with the following details:


Rent 8520
Bank Interest 125


wages 950
Water 3150
rent 3700
JCB Hire 310
Stationary 75
Purchase of trailer 900
Prize 100
Insurance 300
Show prize 75

outstanding rent from tenant is 650, accruals for rent and water are 950 and 400 and the insurance is pre-paid 30.

Am i right in thinking from theabove i take out JCB Hire, Purchase of trailer and both prizes, i add on the 650 to rent rec'd, add on 950 and 400 to rent and water and then take off 30 for the insurance.

Many thanks for your help.

What kind of rental income is this? Commercial or residential? There seems to be some strange expenditure associated to it. On residentail lets the income is calculated to year to 5th April and you would indeed accrue for unpaid rent to that day (strictly on a daily basis). Hard to know what you would or wouldn't include without knowing what the expenditure specifically was for. Certainly if it is a residential rent then they cannot claim expenses to make the propert habitable (thinking about the jcb here) but can claim for renewals etc. Bit of a puzzle!

Its an assignment question and it is for an allotment society.

The rental income is for allotments.

From The Reciepts and Payments Account prepare an Income and Expenditure.

Rental Income 8520 + 650 9170

Bank Interest 125



Wages 950

Water 3150 + 400 3550

Rent 3700 + 950 4650

Repairs 720

Jcb Hire 310

Stationery 75

Prize 100

Insurance 300 - 30 270

Show Prize 75



Deficit of Income over
Expenditure (1405)

The Jcb Hire is equipment hire same as plant hire and is an expense. The Purchase of
the trailer is A fixed Asset Purchase although it being a small amount.

That is a start anyway Hope it helps in some way.
