Problem 3: Grading: This problem is worth a total of 18.75 points. There are 12grading elements each worth 18.75 x 2/3 / 12 = 1.0417 points. There are 18.75 x 1/3 = 6.25 points available for effort. Consider each of the following items recorded by the SWN Company: A: The SWN Company has received the proper documents indicating that it is being sued by the WWK Company for $300,000 because the WWK Company claims that one of SWN Company’s products failed causing damage to WWK Company’s factory machines. SWN Company’s attorneys have carefully reviewed the suit and have concluded that there is very little probability that the suit will be successful and SWN Company will have no liability for the damages. However, in order to be conservative, SWN Company records the following entry:
Product Liability Loss Accrued product liability loss To accrue for possible loss from product liability
(Note that generally accepted accounting principles specify that potential losses are recorded if (1) the amount of the potential loss can be reasonably estimated and (2) it is probable that the loss will be incurred.) B: The SWN Company acquired factory equipment for $135,000 at a liquidation sale of a local company that was in bankruptcy. Because the company was selling due to a bankruptcy liquidation, the sale prices were significantly below the actual fair market value of the equipment. In fact, the fair market value of the equipment purchased by the SWN Company was $180,000. Upon purchase the SWN Company recorded the following: Equipment 180,000 Cash Gain on acquisition of equipment To record acquisition of equipment sold in liquidation
C: Although the SWN Company is doing reasonably well, management is concerned that, in the event of a liquidation, certain assets could not be sold for their current value as shown on the balance sheet. Management’s major concern is the amount of $450,000 paid in goodwill when acquiring a competitor company this year. Therefore the company wrote off the goodwill with the following entry: Loss on impairment of goodwill Goodwill To record write-down of goodwill
D: The majority stockholder and president of the SWN Company purchased a new automobile for his personal use at a cost of $54,000. Rather than have SWN Company declare and pay a dividend to him in order to pay for the car, the president had SWN Company paid for the car and recorded the following entry: President Expense Cash To record president’s expenses
E: SWN Company’s management was looking at the prices of new factory machinery similar to the machinery they are currently using and discovered that prices of such machinery have risen considerably recently. When compared to the prices of new machines, the amount of depreciation expense recorded for the year appears to be inadequate. Therefore the company recorded the following entry: Depreciation Expense Accumulated Depreciation To record catch-up depreciation
F: During the year, the value of one of the companyâ€™s raw materials increased in value to $924,000. The materials had originally cost $770,000. To record this increase in value, the company recorded the following entry: Materials Inventory Gain on Inventory To record correct value of inventory
Instructions: For each of the above entries: 1. Determine if each journal entry is appropriate under generally accepted accounting principles. 2. If the entry is not appropriate under generally accepted accounting principles, explain why it is not appropriate and indicate which principle(s) is violated. Problem 4: Grading: This problem is worth a total of 18.75 points. There are 10grading elements each worth 18.75 x 2/3 / 10 = 1.25 points. There are 18.75 x 1/3 = 6.25 points available for effort. The following are selected general ledger account balances for the KFD Company as of June 30, 2012 before any adjustments: Debit Cash Accounts Receivable Prepaid Insurance Supplies Equipment Accumulated Depreciation - Equipment Accounts Payable Notes Payable Unearned Rent Revenue Rent Revenue Telephone Expense Wages Expense Pension Expense Interest Expense
