The objective of this Accounting practice set is to provide students with an insight into the process of recording transactions, completing adjusting and closing entries, and preparing financial statements for a retail business.

Company Background

Edward’s Electrical Goods has been in business in Sydney since July, 2011. The company was started by Edward Wright and operates a shop which sells electrical equipment on a retail basis to other businesses on credit and the public on cash terms. The company’s share capital consists of 126,000 ordinary shares, issued at $1 each, that are owned by various members of the Wright family. The company employs a combination of sales and administration staff to operate the   business.

Accounting System Information & Procedures

The company has a financial year end of 30 June and prepares adjusting entries at the end of the financial year.   To ensure efficiency of its accounting procedures, the company uses the following Special Journals to maintain its accounting records:

1. Sales Journal (SJ): to record all sales of inventory oncredit

2. PurchasesJournal(PJ):torecordallpurchasesofinventoryoncredit

3. Cash Receipts Journal (CRJ): to record all cashreceipts

4. Cash Payments Journal (CPJ): to record all cashpayments

5. GeneralJournal(GJ):torecordalltransactionsotherthantheabove.

Business transactions are recorded for Edward’s Electrical Goods on a daily basis in one of these five journals in the accounts.

Additionally, the company maintains a general ledger to record postings from the journals.  Subsidiary Ledgers are used to record the separate details of Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable.  Transactions are posted immediately to the relevant ledger account if they are entered  into the general journal, the “other” column of the Cash Receipts Journal or Cash Payments Journal, or if they affect any of the Accounts Receivable or Accounts Payable subsidiary ledger accounts.  Apart from these transactions, totals of the special journals are taken at the end of the month and then posted to the appropriate accounts. The company uses a periodic inventorysystem.

In practice, the company would be required to collect and pay Goods and Services Tax (GST) on its sales and purchases. However, for the purposes of this exercise, GST has been excluded.

Please Note: All amounts in this practice set should be rounded to the nearest dollar.
