Sale of Building - General Journal Entries

Discussion in 'Quickbooks' started by Richard Faulkner, Jul 29, 2004.

  1. Hi,

    I have looked through previous posts on Google and cant find anything
    which answers my query.

    In March I sold a building for £150,000

    There was a loan of £23893.33 and solicitors fees of £1036

    The fixed asset account shows:

    Purchase price £37,500
    Various expenditures £21442 (including the above solicitors fees)

    How do I create a general journal entry which pays off the loan and
    fees, produces a gain, and puts the balance in my bank account?

    I am guessing that there may be one set of entries which deals with the
    actual movement of the monies, and another which deals with the gain?

    Using QB 2004

    Many Thanks

    From my method of recording home sales for my clients who are general
    contractors in the US:

    Income account for Sold Property to start

    Entry would look like:

    Sold Property: $150,000
    Loan: -$23,893.33
    Fixed Asset Acct: -$58,942.00
    Balance = $67,164.67 (what goes into the bank as profit)

    You should do this from the deposit screen. If you've already deposited the
    money you can double-click the deposit to open it. The balance will be what
    went into the bank but you'll be accounting for everything on the sales
    contract / closing statement.

    To record the sale of building giving effect to the pay off of the
    loan and fees you can pass the following journal entry.
    Debit Bank A/C by £ 125070.67
    Debit Solicitor Fees Payable A/C by £ 1036.00
    Debit Loans Payable A/C by £ 23893.33

    Credit the fixed asset account
    Purchase price £37,500
    Various expenditures £21442

    Credit Gains on sale of Asset A/C by £ 91058
