Aurora Corporation operated without insurance coverage for the first month of 2019. Then, on February 1, 2019, the company paid the $4,800 premium on a two-year insurance policy with benefits beginning on that date. The company uses the accrual basis. How much insurance expense will be reported on the company's income statement for the year ended December 31, 2019? a) $200 b) $2,200 c) $4.600 d) $4,800


Correct answer is letter B, $2,200


Using accrual basis method, revenue and expenses will be recognized when incurred.

The $4,800 is a 24 months policy, therefore we must compute the insurance expense applicable for the year covering from February 1 to December 31 (11 months)

An adjusting entry to recognize the expire portion of the insurance must be done at the year end in the amount of $2,200.

($4,800 / 24 months = $200 x 11 months = $2,200)
