The following is required:

  1. Prepare a journal entry for each transaction.
  2. Discuss the right of shareholders of capital stock for company A that they are entitled to.
  3. Company A is formed as a corporation and therefore, its shareholders have limited liability. Limited liabilitymeans that stockholders can only lose the amount of their investment. Discuss how this limited liability affects a corporation.
