  1. Question 26 of 40
    This is not non-current asset it is current liability as you explain
    Expense owing means expense, which has been incurred, but payment for it is yet to be made; so it is a liability. Moreover as its amount is payable within one year so is shown as a current liability.

  2. I think you have to look at the question again.
    In the 2018 year there are 12 months and in each of the month rent was earned hence in the income statement the full amount of 10 000 should be recorded in the income statement.
    With regards to your explanation, please look at dates the contract started in 1996 and not 2018.
    The answer 7500 would be correct if they started renting the premises on the 1st of April 2018
    You might need to change the dates in the question for it to match your answer.
