ACCT 280 Accounting

For your main Discussion post, describe at least two typical adjusting entries a service-type business would need to record to bring account balances up-to-date. For your examples, one of the adjusting entries should be an accrual and another a deferral. You may use similar examples as those in your textbook and you may also research other typical adjusting entries for service-type companies. Be sure to address the following questions: What are the purposes of each of your example adjusting entries? Why are these adjusting entries required? What if the company does not record these adjusting entries? Would financial statements be accurate? Why or why not? Should the adjusting entries described be posted to the general ledger before preparing an adjusted trial balance? Why or why not? Be sure to post at least 2 references in support of your explanations and conclusions.
