Although disappointed, Chandra was not surprised. He knew that expenses were higher than sales because, throughout the year, he had been unable to generate a cash surplus. His bank overdraft had blown out and his bank manager has asked him to present his financial statements for 2015 to the bank.  

Required:

You are asked to:

1. Review the performance of Bendigo Fencing Company in 2014 and make a recommendation as to whether Chandra's overdraft facility should be cancelled.

2. Prepare a report for Chandra explaining the errors he made in his income statement.

To perform this analysis you will need to recast Chandra's income statement. The following information may be useful:

At 30 June 2015, the following inventories existed:

Raw Material                     $2,000

Work in Process                 $4,000

Finished Goods                  $5,150

  • The factory occupies 70 per cent of the rented building, the sales area 25 per cent and the administration area 5 per cent.
  • All the company's fixed assets are estimated to have a useful life for 7 years and no salvage value at the end of their life.
  • Chandra spends 60 per cent of his time as factory manager and spends the remaining time equally on sales and general administration.
  • Electricity costs are consumed 70% by the factory and 30% by the office.

The company being a sole propriety concern is in the need of funds and the funds have been arranged by Mr. Chandra Bebby through overdraft facility of a financial institution.

As, it is important that the books of accounts and other transactions related to finance are to be delt with on accrual or mercantile basis.

But here Mr. Chandra Bebby has prepared the accounts at the end of the year which is prone to a lot of errors of omission, commission and compensation.
