7

When is the straight-line method not allowed for notes payable accounting?

Installment notes, and when the yield and stated rates are materially different

8

What is the amount borrowed on an installment note issued at discount?

Product of the periodic payment and the annuity factor for the term of the note and the yield rate on the note.

9

11

What is the net note balance for a note issued at a discount?

Face value less unamortized discount
