Bonds: Long-term Liabilities CF2-105-I-M
This tutorial contemplates the use of bonds as financial instruments. Through the use of a depreciation calculator and a practical case example students will analyze depreciation schedules and journal entries in order to better understand this financing option.
This tutorial is separated into four sections:
- a photo example of a bond certificate detailing the important elements
- a test with multiple choice questions reflecting upon both the time value of money and bond theory
- a bond calculator allowing for the calculation of bond depreciation schedules and associated journal entries
- a focus on bonds from the investor&rsquos perspective rather than that of the issuer
