Since I'm the "commenter" mentioned in the question, I will answer. Basically, it's off-topic by definition. See my meta question
Why are accounting questions off-topic here, even though there are small business questions?
in addition to the other questions and comments linked through it. Also there's the help that includes this as explicitly off-topic:
Questions about accounting that are academic or have no bearing on personal finance
As regards your specific question on the (non-meta) site: You might say that your intent there is related to personal finance, and since you know what you were thinking you'd have more "direct" insight into that. As the question is written, however, I think it reads like a straight accounting question Hence my comment. There are currently 2 other votes to close, so at least some others agreed.
In the even that it hits the number necessary to close, you can still edit it to give it a personal finance element. You could also preemptively edit it now to try to avoid closure.
Even if it doesn't get closed, by the way, I stand by the other part of my comment that I don't think you're going to get the help that you need on this site. Your question really requires too much background on, well, accounting to be answered properly.
Also, keep in mind that I don't think it's a bad question. It's just not a question that's well suited (in my opinion) to the format of this site.
