journal entry for loan payment and receipt
Example : Journal entry for loan payable

Suppose A purchased a car on loan for Rs 200000 by a firm then the following entry will be pass.

In  this case loan taken from bank is a liability for A as he has to pay the money in future.

Car A/c                  200000

To Loan A/c                    200000

(being car purchased on loan)

Pay Ist  installment of loan which include 2000 principal amount and 3000 as interest amount.

Therefore the journal entry will be

Loan A/c Dr                            2,000

interest on loan A/c Dr           3000

To Bank A/c                             5000

(being installment of loan is given)

Similarly other installment are paid to bank here interest on loan is expense for expense for a and Loan is debited to decrease the liability .In this way we pass the entry every month till the liability of loan is set to nullify.

In this case loan principal amount and interest on loan is shown separately in books of accounts.


Accounting equation of received a loan will be

Asset = Capital + liabilities

car = capital + Loan

200000 = 0 + 200000

200000 = 200000

when loan is given to employee

Loan taken by employee for purchasing a Car Rs 300000.

In the above transaction loan  taken by employee is an asset for an organization .

Journal entry for the above will be.

Loan taken by employee A/c Dr.  300000

To Bank / cash A/c 300000

(being loan taken by employee )

Now employee has to make payment of loan in 30 equal installment of 10,000 each if his salary is Rs 40000 the journal entry will be .

Salary A/c 40,000

To Loan taken by employee A/c 10,000
