Actually, he should NOT be. He was killed in a battle in the Philippines, and did not complete the circumnavigation of the world. It was completed by Juan Sebastián Elcano, but Magellan had better press- and got the credit. .

Magellan was given credit for it. However he was not the first as he died half way around. His first mate Juan Sebastián de Elcano was actually the first person to successfully circumnavigate the globe.

The credit has been given to Ferdinand Magellan although he failed to circumnavigate the globe in his effort in any single try. His combined efforts allow his name to receive the credit. Ferdinand Magellan and his crew sailed around the world.

Commission in a trial balance can be debit or even credit . It depends on a situation . If commission is given in the debit side of a trial balance then it is debit and if it is given in credit side then it is credit . But if no info is given it is taken as debit . Thanks
