On January 1, 2021, a company issues $750,000 of 8% bonds, due in ten years, with interest payable semiannually on June 30 and December 31 each year.

    January 1 2021 Cash 750000 Dr

    Bonds Payable 750000 Cr

    June 30 2021 Interest Expense 30000 Dr

    Cash 30000 Cr

    December 31 2021 Interest expense 30000 Dr

    Cash 30000 Cr

    Explanation:

    The bonds are issued at par so whole 750000 is received in cash on issue date.

    The annual interest on bonds is 750000 * 0.08 = 60000

    This is paid in equal installments semi annually so semi annual payment is 60000 / 2 = 30000
