$1,850 is the total amount that has been paid. However that was only for the first 9 months of the period. We need to total cost of using the telephone for the whole 12 months and so the total expense is 1,850 plus the 950 that is owing for the remaining 3 months.

Sir how you calculated the 950 that is accrual and in SOPL 1850 only will appear right because they paid only 1850 and says that is 2800. please help me to clear my doubts.

We need the expense for the telephone used during the year from 1 April 2000 to 31 March 2001.
1,850 is the amount that has been paid for the period from 1 April 2000 to 31 December. They are still owing 950 for the period from 1 January to 31 March (and the 950 is given in the question – I assume that you have downloaded the lecture notes?).
Therefore the total expense for the year was 1,850 + 950 = 2,800 and this is what appears in the SOPL.

and Accruals account is something like money we owed to the suppler, a payable, so it should appear on SOFP, a liabilities under current liablities.

Hello, you didn’t balance off the accrual or the prepayment t-account. Did I miss that they should not be balanced? is this connected with them being added to the SOPL?

He balanced both the prepayment and accruals expenses. For the prepayment b/f $1000 he balanced it to zero by crediting the $1000 and debiting the $1000 to insurance a/c. The same procedure applys for accrual but remember accruals are a liability so the b/f is a credit so you need to debit in order to reduce it to zero and credit the insurance a/c. Hope that helps

the last step of the Accruals Account is draw double lines under a blank both sites, write $950 within the double lines, find the missing figure on debit site, mark the mssing figure which is $950 balance c/d on debit site and balance b/d $950 below the double lines on credit site .
and this $950 balance b/d will be brought down to the next financial period at the same site and same account .
