Description and requirements
In this assignment, you have been given an ‘Unadjusted Trial Balance’ along with information
egarding some outstanding balance day adjustments for a particular business. First, you need to
ecord these adjusting entries in the ‘Journal’ and then post the entries into the various ‘Ledger’
accounts. Once completed, you will then need to manually transfer balances from the ‘Ledger’ into
the ‘Adjusted Trial Balance’ to complete the ‘Income Statement’ and ‘Balance Sheet’. IMPORTANT:
only the ‘Journal’, ‘Adjusted Trial Balance’, ‘Income Statement’ and ‘Balance Sheet’ are marked.
However, students are encouraged to use the ‘Ledger’ to prepare adjusted closing balances to
transfer to the ‘Adjusted Trial Balance’.
For this assignment, all the tasks and information will be sent to you via your Deakin Student
email. The email will be sent out by Monday 31st August 2020, 5:00pm (AEST). To access your
student emails, simply go to and log in with your Deakin username and
password. In the email, you will find TWO files, an Excel template (“MAA103 A2 {STUDENT_ID}.xlsx”)
and this instructions file. Once you start working on the file you may save and go back to it as many
times as you like; there is no need to complete it all in one go. Please make sure you use Microsoft
Office Excel1 to complete the assignment as not doing so may results in technical e
ors, delays in
your results, or loss of marks.
• Please make sure we have entered your student ID co
ectly for the Excel file.
• When calculating any figures please round values to the closest dollar. For example, $12.49 would
ound to $12 and $12.50 would round to $13.
• When filling out the General Journal, please use the drop-down a
ow to select the appropriate
account name. You will not be able to use any other account name not listed.

differently – it is okay as long as no e

• You are not required to manually enter in any “$” symbols.
• Do NOT use any copy/cut and paste as it will throw off the automatic marking. You do not need
to paste additional rows in the Excel file. There is enough space to record all transactions.

the issue, you should download a fresh copy and start again.

            'Loxley Farms' is owned and operated by Ms Robyn Hoodling. Robyn opened the business some time ago and has had some training in basic bookkeeping. Robyn has been keeping a pretty good record of her business so far and has even managed to do some of the needed balance day adjustments already. There are a few balance day adjustment items remaining that she was unsure on and so she has enlisted your help and has provided you with her unadjusted trial balance for the month of August 2020. Your task is to record the adjusting entries in the 'Journal', post these entries to the 'Ledger', manually prepare the 'Adjusted Trial Balance' and finally help fill out the 'Income Statement' and 'Balance Sheet' based on the 'Adjusted Trial Balance' for the month of August 2020. You can assume all other balance day adjustments not listed have already been accounted for.
