E 5-3 Installment sales method; journal entries


Charter Corporation, which began business in 2011, appropriately uses the installment sales method of accounting for its installment sales.  The following data were obtained for sales during 2011 and 2012:


                                                                                                            2011                               2012


Installment sales                                                                        360,000                          350,000

2012                                                                                                                                      120,000




Prepare summary journal entries for 2011 and 2012 to account for the installment sales and cash collections.  The company uses the perpetual inventory system.


E 5-10 Long-term contract; percentage of completion and completed contract and cost recovery methods


On June 15, 2011, Sanderson Construction entered into a long-term construction contract to build a baseball stadium in Washington D.C. for 220 million.  The expected completion date is April 1, 2013, just in time for the 2013 baseball season.  Cost incurred and estimated costs to complete at year-end for the life of the contract are as follows ($ in millions)


                                                                                        2011                  2012               2013


Cost incurred during the year                                    $ 40                  $ 80                $ 50      

Estimated cost to complete as of 12/31                   120                     60                     



1.       Determine the amount of gross profit or loss to be recognized in each of the three years using the percentage-of completion method.

2.       How much revenue will Sanderson report in its 2011 and 2012 income statements related to this contract using the completed contract method?

3.       Determine the amount of gross profit or loss to be recognized in each of the three years using the completed contract method.

4.       Determine the amount of revenue, cost and gross profit or loss to be recognized in each of the three years under IFRS, assuming that using the percentage-of-completion method is not appropriate.  

5.       Suppose the estimated costs to complete at the end of 2012 are 80 million instead of 60 million.  Determine the amount of gross profit or loss to be recognized in 2012 using the percentage-of-completion method.


Case 5-23 Using ratios to test reasonableness of data

You are a new staff accountant with a large regional CPA firm, participating in your first audit.  You recall from your auditing class that CPA’s often use ratios to test the reasonableness of accounting numbers provided by the client.  Since ratios reflect the relationships among various account balances, if it is assumed that prior relationships still hold, prior years ratios can be used to estimate what current balances should approximate.  However, you never actually performed this kind of analysis until now.  The CPA in charge of the audit of Covington Pike Corporation brings you the list of ratios shown below and tells you these reflect the relationships maintained by Covington Pike in recent years.


Profit margin on sales = 5 %

Return on assets = 7.5%

Gross profit margin = 40%

Inventory turnover ratio = 6 times

Receivables turnover ratio = 25

Acid-test ratio = 9

Current ratio = 2 to 1

Return on shareholders’ equity = 10%

Debt to equity ratio = 1/3

Times interest earned ratio = 12 times

Jotted in the margins are the following notes:

·         Net income 15,000

·         Only one short-term not (5,000); all other current liabilities are trade accounts

·         Property, plant, and equipment are the only noncurrent assets

·         Bonds payable are the only noncurrent liabilities

·         The effective interest rate on short-term notes and bonds is 8%

·         No investment securities

·         Cash balance totals 15,000

Required:  You are requested to approximate the current year’s balances in the form of a balance sheet and income statement to the extent the information allows.  Accompany those financial statements with the calculations you use to estimate each amount reported.
