    Dr. Bond receivables $1,555,000

    Cr. Discount on the bond $148,500

    Cr. Cash $1,406,500

    Explanation:

    The bond is issued on discount when the bond issuance proceeds are less than the face value of the bond. The discount is expensed over the bond period until maturity. It is added to the interest expense value to expense it.

    Sale Proceeds = $1,406,500

    Discount on the bond = Face value - cash proceeds = $1,555,000 - $1,406,500 = $148,500

    This Discount will be amortized over the bond's life till maturity and added to interest expense.
