The owner of Compu-sellhas prepared the financial reports himself. Unfortunately, the owner has not studiedaccounting and believes he made a number of mistakes when preparing the end of yearfinancial reports. He has asked you for assistance in preparing the financial reports. You aregiven all of the information used to prepare the financial reports for the year ending 30thJune 2013. The owner was not sure about adjusting entries and wants you to make sure theyhave all been recorded correctly. He would like you to process any adjustments that aredeemed necessary. During your investigation you have identified the following issueswhich may require further action:(a) The telephone bill for the shop was still owing for the month ending 30th June2013. The bill was received in the mail on the 21st of June but because everyonewas so busy, the bill was not paid or recorded in the financial reports for the yearending 30th June. The amount shown on the bill was $315.(b) All non-current assets purchased by the business are depreciated using straightline depreciation as this is the only method the owner of Compu-sell has learnt.(Show your depreciation journal entries in (b)).(c) Allowance for doubtful debts has not been recorded for the year ending 30th June2013. Credit sales for the year ending 30th June 2012 were $360,000 and$410,000 for the year ending 3oth June 2013. The allowance for bad debts isestimated as 2% of credit sales. Credit sales make up 70% of total sales.(d) During the year, the owner took home some office supplies (which hadpreviously been recorded in the books as a current asset) for personal use (worth$800). The owner recorded a debit to the ?Miscellaneous Expenses? account anda credit to ?Drawings?.(e) Office furniture was purchased by the business for $8,200 cash on the 1st ofMarch 2013. You have checked and the purchase was recorded correctly. It ispolicy for the owner to replace office furniture every 3 years and give the oldfurniture away to charity for free at the end of its useful life of three years.

The total sale price was $3,500 and the computer was delivered to thecustomer on the 4th of July 2012. The customer paid the balance owing once thecomputer was delivered.

August was paid on the 1st of March 2013.
