Interest Expense will be at the first account and will need to be named and the amount entered, debit entry. To balance, another account is created to represent the accrued liability, credit entry. Same information will need to be entered on the second journal entry as on the first one.

Fill in the form with the date and amount and push enter. The account’s transactions will come up and each check or transaction can be compared.
