Chapter 3 – Page 1 of 22 Question 1 Revenue Matching Time-period Which principle was being followed? A Revenue Since the sale was completed in March the revenue was recorded in March even though the cash was not collected until June. B Matching The supplies were purchased in January, paid for in February but used in April. Therefore the expense was recorded in April. C Time-period Financial statements are prepared on at regular schedule, at the end of each month, quarter, year. D Revenue An independent assessor valued our inventory at \$200,000. Since we sold it for \$180,000 we recorded the sale at \$180,000. E Matching We did the detective work to identify all costs we incurred this period to generate revenue and recorded the costs on the income statement. F Time-period It is difficult to measure revenues and expenses because some transactions start in one period and end in another. Which principle was being violated? G Matching We purchased a computer in July so we recorded the total cost as equipment expense in July. H Revenue We wait to record the revenue until we collect the cash. I Time-period We only prepare financial statements when someone tells us we need to. Once we went more than two years without preparing a statement. J Revenue We record the sale at the appraiser’s estimate of the item sold. The difference between the estimate and cash collected is booked as a gain or loss. K Matching We record expenses in the period in which they are paid. What did you learn?
