Washington Company - Perpetual Inventory System

Prepare an Excel file with the following journal entries, assuming a perpetual inventory system:

Washington Company engaged in the following transactions:

July 2 purchased merchandise on credit from Zapala Company, terms 2/10, n/30, FOB destination, invoice dated July 1,
$2,000.

The entry is
Merchandise Inventory Dr 2,000
Accounts Payable Cr 2,000

6 Returned some merchandise to Zapala Company for full credit, $250.00.

The entry is
Accounts Payable Dr 250
Merchandise Inventory Cr 250

11 Paid Zapala Company for purchase of July 2 less return and discount.

The total purchase is now 2,000-250=1,750. 2% discount is $35. The amount of cash paid is 1,715. The entry is
Accounts Payable Dr 1,750
Merchandise Inventory Cr 35
Cash Cr 1,715

14 Purchased merchandise on credit from Zapala Company, terms 2/10, n/30, FOB destination, invoice dated July 12, $2,250.

The entry is
Merchandise Inventory Dr 2,250
Accounts Payable Cr 2,250

31 Paid amount owed Zapala Company for purchase of July 14.

Since the amount is paid after the cash discount period, full amount would be paid. The entry is
Accounts Payable Dr 2,250
Cash Cr 2,250

Prepare journal entries and, assuming the perpetual inventory system, determine the total amount paid to Zapala Company.

Total amount paid is 1,715+2,250 = $3,965
