What the journal entry to record a purchase of equipment?

The purchase of property, plant, or equipment results in a debit to the asset section of the balance sheet. The credit is based on what form of payment you use as the customer. If you use cash, then you would credit cash. If you use credit card or another type of deferred payment, then you would credit accounts payable or another liability account.
