Unformatted text preview: Dividends = Issuance of stock + Revenues - Expenses - Increase in stockholders' equity Issuance of stock = Increase in stockholders' equity - Revenues + Expenses + Dividends Calculate net sales as follows: Net sales - Cost of goods sold = Gross profit Therefore, to solve for net sales: Net sales = Gross profit + Cost of goods sold = $38,200 + $60,600 = $98,800 Now that net sales are known, sales returns and allowances can be calculated. Calculate sales returns and allowances as follows: Net sales = Sales- Sales discounts - Sales returns and allowances Therefore, to solve for sales returns and allowances: Sales returns and allowances = Sales - Sales discounts - Net sales = $105,700 - $2,500 - $98,800 = $4,400 Calculate selling expenses as follows: Total operating expenses = Selling expenses + General and administrative expenses Therefore, to solve for selling expenses: Selling expenses = Total operating expenses - General and administrative expenses = $18,300 - $10,100 = $8,200 Calculate net income as follows: Net income = Gross profit - Total operating expenses = $38,200 - $18,300 = $19,900 The income statement for a merchandising business is presented using the "multiple- step" format. There are four steps to completing an income statement. Step 1: Compute the net sales: Net Sales = Sales - (Sales Discounts + Sales Returns and Allowances) = $92,200 - ($4,700 + $4,200) = $83,300. Step 2: Compute the gross profit. Gross Profit is the total profit from sales before considering operating expenses. Cost of goods sold (COGS) is an expense that represents the cost of all merchandise sold during the current accounting cycle. Cost of goods sold is subtracted from net sales to compute gross profit: Gross Profit = Net Sales - Cost of Goods Sold = $83,300 - $51,600 = $31,700. Step 3: Compute the total operating expenses. Total operating expenses are expenses incurred during the accounting cycle to support the selling of inventory (selling expenses) and the operations of the company as a whole (general and administrative expenses). Compute total operating expenses: Total Operating Expenses = Selling Expenses + General and Administrative Expenses = $10,900 + $7,800 = $18,700. Step 4: Compute Net Income: Net Income = Gross Profit - Total Operating Expenses = $31,700 - $18,700 = $13,000. Step 3: Complete the stockholders' equity section of the balance sheet. Stockholders' equity equals Capital Stock plus ending retained earnings . Since Capital Stock is given in this problem, we must calculate ending retained earnings. There are two ways to compute ending retained earnings: (a) The basic accounting equation states that Assets = Liabilities + Stockholders' equity. To calculate stockholders' equity, we restate the equation as follows: Stockholders' equity = Assets - Liabilities = $193,200 - $44,000 = $149,200 Stockholders' equity is composed of two parts: Capital Stock and Retained Earnings....
