    Dr cash $420,000

    Cr bonds payable $400,000

    Cr premium on bonds payable $20,000

    Dr interest expense ($40000-$2,000) $38,000

    Dr premium on bonds payable $2,000

    Cr cash $40,000


    The bond price is the pv of all cash inflows promised by the bond which includes annual coupon and repayment of face value at redemption:

    bond price=face value * 105%

    bond price=$400,000*105%=$420000

    The cash proceeds from the issue would be debited to cash while bonds payable is credited with $400,000 and premium on bonds payable is credited with $20,000.

    amortization of premium=$20,000/10=$2,000

    interest payment=10%*$400,000=$40,000
