A company borrows 5% loan of $500,000 for 10 years. Then the company will pay $25000 interest every year shown on SOPL while the loan of $500,000 will be shown on SOFP for the rest of the 10 years.
I have few questions related to my example above such as:
1) Interest expense would be $25000 on SOPL every year for the rest of the 10 years?
2) Loan would be $500,000 as non-current liability on SOFP for the rest of the 10 years?
3) On repayment we will remove the $500,000 loan as non-current liability from SOFP and we will show it as expense for the year on SOPL?
Is that correct?January 18, 2023 at 7:01 am #676830John MoffatKeymaster

2. It will be a non-current liability until there is less than 1 year before the date of repayment. Then it becomes a current liability.
3. No!!! It is never an expense in the SOPL. When the loan is repaid we credit Cash and debit Loan, and the loan then disappears.
