    Total Prepaid balance as at December 31=$16,800+$16,200=$33,000

    Since the liability policy is for 18 months and all the payments regarding 18 months has been paid but the expense shall only be recognised for 12 months period i. e. from January 1, 2021 to December 31, 2021 and accordingly the prepaid insurance balance in respect of liability policy as at December 31, 2021 will be as follows:

    Prepaid insurance in respect of Liability policy = $48,600-$48,600*12/18

    =$16,200

    Corp damage policy

    Since the corp damage policy is for 2 years and all the payments regarding 2 years has been paid but the expense shall only be recognised for 12 months period i. e. from January 1, 2021 to December 31, 2021 and accordingly the prepaid insurance balance in respect of corp damage policy as at December 31, 2021 will be as follows:

    Prepaid insurance in respect of corp policy = $33,600-$33,600*12/24

    =$16,800

    Total Prepaid balance as at December 31=$16,800+$16,200=$33,000
