Assuming that the contract outcome can be reliably measured and as a result Samuel Construction Company adopts the percentage of completion (cost basis method):

(i) Calculate the amount of gross profit that should be recognised for years ending 30 June 2012, 30 June 2013 and 30 June 2014.  Show all workings.

(ii) Calculate the amount of revenue that should be recognised for years ending 30 June 2012, 30 June 2013 and 30 June 2014.  Show all workings.

(iii) Prepare the necessary journal entries for the year ending 30 June 2013.

 

Note: For the percentage-of-completion calculation, round to the second decimal place (eg 41.75%).  Round any currency calculations to the nearest whole dollar.
