Cash $20,000 Accounts Payable $30,000
Accounts Receivable 50,000 Notes Payable 15,000
Inventory 33,000 Boat Loan 18,000
Boat 24,000 Stockholders\’ Equity 64,000
Trent willingly admits that he is not an accountant by training. He is concerned that his balance sheet might not be correct. He has provided you with the following additional information.
1. The boat actually belongs to Radinsky, not to Penington Corporation. However, because he thinks he might take customers out on the boat occasionally, he decided to list it as an asset of the company. To be consistent he also listed as a liability of the corporation his personal loan that he took out at the bank to buy the boat.
2. The inventory was originally purchased for $21,000, but due to a surge in demand Trent now thinks he could sell it for $33,000. He thought it would be best to record it at $33,000.
3. Included in the accounts receivable balance is $12,000 that Trent loaned to his brother 5 years ago. Trent included this in the receivables of Penington Corporation so he wouldn\’t forget that his brother owes him money.
