View Full Document4. Andre Company has total proceeds from sales of $4,515. If the proceeds include sales taxes of 5%,
what is the amount to be credited to Sales?
a)
$4,000.
b)
$4,300.
c)
$4,289.25.
d)
The correct answer is not given.
Ans: b
Response A: If total sales was $4,000 and $4,515 was collected for sales and sales tax, the implied sales
tax rate is 12.9%. The amount to be credited to Sales can be computed by dividing total proceeds from
sales by one plus the sales tax rate of 5%. The computation is as follows: $4,515/1.05 = $4,300.
Response B: Correct!
Response C: This answer results from multiplying the total proceeds from sales times the sales tax rate
and subtracting the result from total proceeds from sales. If the business figures out sales tax payable in
this manner, they will be paying a greater amount of sales tax than their actual obligation. The amount to
be credited to Sales can be computed by dividing total proceeds from sales by one plus the sales tax rate
of 5%. The computation is as follows: $4,515/1.05 = $4,300.
