You are called by Tim Duncan of Ivanhoe Co. on July 16 and asked to prepare a claim for insurance as a result of a theft that took place the night before. You suggest that an inventory be taken immediately. The following data are available.


Inventory, July 1 $ 35,500

Purchases— goods placed in stock July 1-15 92,400

Sales revenue—goods delivered to customers (gross) 113,200

Sales returns—goods returned to stock 4,300


Your client reports that the goods on hand on July 16 cost $32,000, but you determine that this figure includes goods of $5,700 received on a consignment basis. Your past records show that sales are made at approximately 40% over cost. Duncan's insurance covers only goods owned.


Compute the claim against the insurance company.
