The 5% interest on \$600000 notes is for the whole year. The amount of interest for whole year will be = 600000 * 0.05 = \$30000

31 Dec 2020 Interest receivable 22500 Dr

Interest Revenue 22500 Cr

This is because the interest of 22500 from April 2020 to December 2020 relates to the period of 2020 and using accrual principle, we will record this as revenue in 2020.

Thus, on 31 March 2021 we will record the interest revenue that pertains to the period of January 2021 to March 2021 which comes out to be,

Interest Revenue = 30000 * 3/12 = \$7500
