How do I reflect the loss of an uninsured asset?
Asked Sep 21, 2007, 09:04 AM
I am supposed to assume that on June 30th after my balance sheet has been prepared, a fire destroyed one of my tents, which had cost $14,300. The tent was not insured. Explain what changes would be required in my June 30th balance shee to reflect the loss of this asset.
As you can see I understand how to subtract it on the asset side. But I do not know what category to take it from on the Liability side. I'm assuming that he owned the tent so the only thing I can guess it would come out of is the Capital Stock. But it's not actual stock so that could be wrong.
