ACCT 303 Trakee Boat



Truckee Boats began business on October 1, 2012 as a retail sales outlet for Swellcraft water-ski and fishing boats. Truckee Boats is located on the outskirts of Las Vegas, Nevada, and the area provides skiers and fishermen with ample opportunities for boating recreation at nearby lake Mead. Joe Truckee was excited that he was able to get his business established in the fall, so that he would have his operations running smoothly by the peak sales period during spring and early summer. Truckee Boats has adopted and October 31 fiscal year end, at the close of the active boating season.

On October 1, Joe and his attorney were involved with issuing the stock of this closely held corporation. On this same date, he hired a recent graduate of a local trade school, Henry Webster, to be responsible for boat repairs. In the next few days of October, he rented a sales office, boat garage, and lot space. The store is open Monday through Saturday and Joe is there all six days. Henry works 8 hours per day, Monday through Friday. Both Henry and Joe are employees of the corporation.

Adjusting Entries: additional information as of October 31, 2012

1. Joe was very conscientious in checking his customers’ credit history. However, while at the Nevada State Boat Show, he learned that it is customary within the pleasure boating industry for retail boat sales to suffer bad debt losses equal to 5% of credit sales. Joe decides that it is prudent to use the 5% industry-wide standard until he has more experience with his own business and customers. Round estimates to the nearest dollar.

2. As a control measure, Joe counts his inventory of skiing and fishing accessories at October 31, 2012. He determines that the cost of this merchandise on hand is $1,140.

3. Joe counts his Supplies after the close of business on the last day of the month and determines the cost of unused supplies to be $262.

4. Joe estimates that his office furniture and boat related equipment will last eight years with no salvage. Fixed assets purchased in the first half of the month are depreciated for the entire month, while fixed assets purchased in the last half of the month are not depreciated until the second month. The company uses the straight-line method. Depreciation is rounded to the nearest dollar.

5. Henry worked 20 days during October and did not work any overtime. Joe gets a monthly salary of $3,000.

6. On November 4, Trucker Boats received a $357 invoice from Desert Gas and Electric Company for utilities consumed during October.
