Before preparing financial statements for the current year, the chief accountant for Springer Company discovered the following errors in the accounts.

 

  1. The declaration and payment of $50,000 cash dividend was recorded as a debit to Interest Expense $50,000 and a credit to Cash $50,000.
  2. A 10% stock dividend (1,000 shares) was declared on the $10 par value stock when the market value per share was $16. The only entry made was: Retained Earnings (Dr.) $10,000 and Dividend Payable (Cr.) $10,000. The shares have not been issued.
  3. A 4-for-1 stock split involving the issue of 400,000 shares of $5 par value common stock for 100,000 shares of $20 par value common stock was recorded as a debit to Retained Earnings $2,000,000 and a credit to Common Stock $2,000,000.

 

Prepare the correcting entries at December 31. (For multiple debit/credit entries, list amounts from largest to smallest e.g. 10, 5, 3, 2.)
