Casper Wiggins has owned and operated Wiggins Corporation for many years and has a very good sense of the probability of collection of outstanding receivables, based on an aging analysis. The following table reveals the likelihood of collection:

(a) Prepare an aging analysis and show how accounts receivable and the related allowance for uncollectibles should appear on the balance sheet at December 31.

(b) Prepare the necessary journal entry to update the allowance for uncollectibles, assuming the balance prior to preparing the aging was a \$15,000 credit.

(c) Prepare the necessary journal entry to update the allowance for uncollectibles, assuming the balance prior to preparing the aging was a \$5,000 debit. How could the allowance account have contained a debit balance?

Morrison Supply sells pressured air devices that assist patients with breathing disorders during sleep. These devices are delivered to patients immediately upon completion of a diagnostics exam, and are subsequently billed to insurance companies. Insurance companies sometime refuse to pay and/or only agree to a reduced price. Patients are then responsible for any amount denied by the insurance company, but are often unable or unwilling to pay. Because clinical standards of cleanliness must be maintained, Morrison is unable to ac- cept returns for resale to others.

Morrison is reluctant to litigate to collect unpaid amounts. As a result, Morrison experiences a high rate of uncollectible accounts, and prepares a monthly adjusting entry for uncollectibles that is equal to 20% of sales.

Morrison’s Monthly sales and write-offs for the first quarter of 20X7 follow:

MONTH SALES ACTUAL WRITEOFFS

January \$630,000 \$100,000

February \$480,000 \$ 80,000

March \$590,000 \$140,000

(a) Prepare monthly journal entries to summarize sales on account, the recording of the provision for uncollectibles, and the actual write-offs.

(b) The provision for uncollectibles is established at 20% of sales. Why are the monthly write-offs not also proportional to that month’s sales? Does the amount written off in a particular month impact net income for that month?

Supreme Vacuum uses television advertising blitzes to generate consumer interest in its highly-touted floor cleaners. Customers are directed to a website for more information. Once on the website, customers are con- stantly confronted with a “video game” where they can use icon-like vacuums to suck up coupons that float on and off their browser windows. At check out, customers are able to clean the contents of their imaginary vacuums and select one of the coupons to apply against their purchase.

The best coupon is a no-moneydown, 4-equal-monthly-payments, coupon. “Magically”, every customer will find at least one of these coupons. Virtually all customers will use this coupon in making their final purchases. As a result, Supreme carries a substantial balance in accounts receivable. It is imperative that Supreme manage credit risk, and careful attention is paid to the “accounts receivable turnover ratio” and the “days outstanding.”

During 20X5, net credit sales were \$6,000,000. The sales were evenly spread throughout the year.

The beginning-of-year net realizable value of accounts receivable was \$2,150,000 and the end-of-year bal- ance was \$2,650,000.

Monitoring receivables: Analysis and ratios B-07.08

(a) Calculate the “accounts receivable turnover ratio” and the “days outstanding.”

(b) Evaluate the information from part (a) and determine if Supreme’s customer base is in compliance the 4-equal-monthly payments agreement.

(c) In addition to the facts above, suppose Supreme ran a major holiday sales campaign in December of 20X5. This campaign promised no payments until 20X6! This campaign generated an additional \$3,000,000 in credit sales (and resulted in an end-of-year receivable balance of \$5,650,000). Can Supreme record these sales under generally accepted accounting principles, and what is the impact on the ratios (compared to the values you computed in part (a))?

(a) Assume the bank holds a 400,000 Indian Rupee (INR) note receivable dated June 1, 20X1. This note matures on August 31, 20X1. This note is written to assume a 360 day year and 30 day months. The annual interest rate is stated at 10%. What is the maturity value of the note, including interest?

Answer: 400,000 X 10% X 60/360 =

6,666.67

400,000 + 6,666.67 = 406,666.67

(b) Assume the bank holds a INR 400,000 note receivable dated June 1, 20X1. This note matures on August 31, 20X1. This note is written to assume a 365 day year and actual days outstanding are used in all calculations. The annual interest rate is stated at 10%. What is the maturity value of the note, including interest?

Answer: 400,000 X 10% X 92/365 =

10,082.19

(c) Assume the bank holds a INR 1,000,000 note receivable dated October 1, 20X5. This note matures on September 30, 20X6. This note is written to assume a 360 day year and 30 day months. The annual interest rate is stated at 8%. How much interest income should the bank record for its accounting year ending December 31, 20X5?

Answer: Zero, the note is not due until 20X6

(d) Assume the bank holds a INR 1,000,000 note receivable dated October 1, 20X5. This note matures on September 30, 20X6. This note is written to assume a 360 day year and 30 day months. The annual interest rate is stated at 8%. How much interest income should the bank record for its accounting year ending December 31, 20X6?

Answer: 1,000,000 X 8% X 270/360 =

600,000

Patti Devine owns Devine Decorating. One of her most popular items is the Remind-a-Chime digital clock. This programmable clock issues “voice-based” reminders of important events like birthdays, anniversaries, etc.

Following is the Remind-a-Chime inventory activity for January. The clocks on hand at January 1 had a unit cost of \$140.

Date Purchases Sales Units on Hand

1-Jan 40

5-Jan 60 units @ \$150 each 100

16-Jan 70 units @ \$255 each 30

23-Jan 90 units @ \$170 each 120

28-Jan 55 units @ \$295 each 65

(a) If Devine uses the first-in, first-out (FIFO) inventory method (periodic approach), what values would be assigned to ending inventory and cost of goods sold? How much is gross profit?

(b) If Devine uses the last-in, first-out (LIFO) inventory method (periodic approach), what values would be assigned to ending inventory and cost of goods sold? How much is gross profit?

(c) If Devine uses the weighted-average inventory method (periodic approach), what values would be assigned to ending inventory and cost of goods sold? How much is gross profit?

Aurora Wedding Gowns was burglarized in May of 20X5. It is unclear how many dresses were stolen. Aurora and its insurance company are currently working to estimate the dollar value of the stolen goods in order to reach a financial settlement under the existing property insurance policy.

Aurora’s tax return prepared at the end of 20X4 revealed that the company ended 20X4 with a total inven- tory of \$189,000. Aurora uses the same inventory accounting methods for tax and accounting purposes.

The insurance company has contacted Aurora’s suppliers and confirmed Aurora’s claim that purchases for 20X5, prior to the date of the burglary, were \$376,000. All inventory was purchased, FOB destination.

20X5 Sales taxes collected by Aurora and remitted to the state, prior to the date of the theft, were \$48,000. The sales tax rate is 6% of sales.

An inventory was taken immediately after the burglary and the cost of dresses in stock was \$123,000.

Aurora consistently sells dresses at a gross profit margin of 45%.

Use the gross profit method to estimate the dollar value of stolen dresses.
