Prepaid Expenses - Examples, Accounting for a Prepaid Expense
The adjusting journal entry for a prepaid expense, however, does affect both a company’s income statement and balance sheet. Refer to the first example of prepaid rent. The adjusting entry on January 31 would result in an expense of $10,000 (rent expense) and a decrease in assets of $10,000 (prepaid rent).
