Graded project

PROJECT GOAL

The goal of this graded project is to create the following

financial statements for J & L Accounting, Inc.:

n Balance sheet

n Income statement

n Statement of retained earnings

n Post-closing trial balance

The financial statements must be created in one Microsoft

Word document (.doc or .docx file). Alternatively, an Excel

workbook may be used (.xls or .xlsx file). The Word or Excel

file will be uploaded for grading.

INSTRUCTIONS

Read the following instructions thoroughly before beginning

your work. This will help you to become familiar with what

is involved in the project. Some students start on the project

right away, thinking they’ll save time. Those students tend to

get stuck and spend more time working through the project

than is necessary. The material you need to know in order

to complete the project has been covered in the textbook and

the assigned exercises and problems. If you understand the

chapters and completed the assigned homework problems,

you should have no problem with the project.

The project is to be done by hand with a pencil and paper.

Use the blank forms provided. At the end of the project, you’ll

be given instructions for creating and uploading the financial

statements in a Word or Excel file for grading.

Note: The formatting of financial statements is important.

They follow Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP),

which creates a uniformity of financial statements for analyzing.

This allows for an easier comparison, as all businesses

follow GAAP. Therefore, the financial statements should be

created exactly the same way shown or referenced in the textbook.

Failure to do so will result in a loss of points.

The project references “debits equaling credits.” This is a

fundamental principle of accounting that mustn’t be violated.

Doing so is not acceptable under any circumstance. Debits not

equaling credits allows for “cooking of the books,” which is

presenting false information. It also allows for embezzlement,

which is theft by management or employees. If debits don’t

equal credits, the cause may be a lack of understanding of

accounting principles, such as those presented in the textbook

and assigned homework problems, or a lack of focus

and concentration when making journal entries, posting to

ledger accounts, or completing math. Remember—instructors

are available to help you with material you may be struggling

with. Mistakes of the lack-of-focus variety are best corrected

by going back over the work until the error is found.

The accounting equation must balance on the balance sheet.

This is another fundamental principle of accounting that

can’t be violated and if so is completely unacceptable. When

the equation doesn’t balance and the numbers are “fudged,”

this is easily detectable by someone who knows accounting. If

your debits equal your credits and you understand which

general ledger accounts belong on which financial statements,

then the accounting equation should balance. It’s

really all about understanding the concepts and applying

that understanding.

The following financial statements are provided from the prior

accounting period for J & L Accounting, Inc.:

a) Post-closing trial balance

b) Balance sheet

c) Income statement

d) Statement of retained earnings

1)Using the following blank forms (make as many copies

as necessary), set up the general ledger accounts for the

general ledger and insert the beginning balances for the

accounts from the post-closing trial balance. The balances

from the post-closing trial balance become the beginning

balances of the accounts for the next account period.

2) Journalize the following transactions in the general journal

using the following blank form (make as many copies

as needed). When making journal entries, each individual

journal entry’s debits should equal its credits. (The

amount for a journal entry can be incorrect or the entry

can be incorrect. However, the debits still have to equal

the credits even though the entry is incorrect. If the journal

entry is incorrect, it can be corrected later when

making adjusting/correcting journal entries. For example,

if the amount is supposed to be $1,100, and for

some reason the amount of $1,010 is recorded, this is

acceptable—although incorrect, it can be corrected later.)

The total of the debits must always equal the total of the

credits for each journal entry—always. This is a fundamental

GAAP that cannot be violated.

a. On January 1, 2015, a payment in cash for $12,000

is made for prepaying rent for the entire year 2015.

b. On January 4, 2015, accounting services are

performed and payment is received in cash for

the amount of $1,900.

c. On January 9, 2015, a payment in cash for

advertising is made in the amount of $850.

d. On January 10, 2015, office supplies are purchased

in the amount of $75 with cash.

e. On January 14, 2015, accounting services are

performed and payment is received in cash for

the amount of $2,725.

f. On January 20, 2015, the telephone bill for the

amount of $660 is received and paid with cash.

g. On January 20, 2015, the utilities bill for $2,925 is

received. The bill won’t be paid until it is due on

February 15, 2015.

h. On January 27, 2015, accounting services are

performed on account in the amount of $3,750.

i. On January 28, 2015, a payment in cash for $1,500

is made for a bill from an advertising agency.

3) Post the general journal entries from the journal to the

corresponding general ledger accounts, paying particular

attention to the posting being made (debit or credit). Use

the Post Ref. column to ensure that each line item of the

journal entries is posted correctly to each general ledger

account. Posting from the journal to the general ledger is

nothing more than rearranging the information. If the

debits equal the credits for a particular journal entry and

the information is posted correctly, the total of the debits

should equal the total of the credits in the general ledger.

4) Calculate the balances in the general ledger accounts.

(Use an Excel spreadsheet or a printing calculator, and

run the numbers several times for accuracy. Often, debits

won’t equal credits on the trial balance because a

hand-held calculator is used and the math is done only

once. Using a hand-held calculator can introduce errors.

This is why an Excel spreadsheet is recommended. However,

if a hand-held calculator is all that’s available to you, be

sure to do the math enough times that you know the calculations

are accurate.) To calculate the balances in the

ledger accounts, you’ll need to do the following:

1) Add the debits.

2) Add the credits.

3) Subtract the larger amount from the other, or,

alternatively, keep the running balance of the

amount in the account and whether it’s a debit

or credit on the ledger.

5) Create an unadjusted trial balance from the balances in

the general ledger accounts. (Once again, be very careful

when doing the math. When calculating the totals of the

debit and credit columns, they should be equal. If not,

do not continue until the debits equal the credits. An

error has been made and must be found and corrected

from the previous steps.) See page 129 of the text for an

example of an unadjusted trial balance. Use the following

blank form.

6) Journalize the following adjusting journal entries in

the general journal, being sure that the debits equal

the credits:

a. Calculate and make the adjustment for the amount

of pre-paid rent that has been used.

b. Make an adjusting journal entry in the amount

of $1,000 for depreciation of the vehicles.

c. Make an adjusting journal entry in the amount

of $100 for depreciation of the equipment.

7) Post the adjusting journal entries to the respective general

ledger accounts, again being sure that the postings

are to the correct debit or credit side and that the Post

Ref. column is used.

8) Calculate the new balances in the general ledger accounts.

Create an adjusted trial balance from the balances in

the general ledger accounts using the same blank form

provided in step 5 when you created the unadjusted trial

balance. See Exhibit 3-3 on page 114 in your textbook

for an example of an adjusted trial balance. Make sure

the math is correct and that the debit column is equal

to the credit column. If not, don’t continue until the error

has been found.

9) Create the income statement for J & L Accounting, Inc.

using the information from the adjusted trial balance. Use

the following blank form to create the income statement.

Its format should be the same as the format used for the

statement provided at the beginning of the project for the

prior accounting period.

10) Create the closing journal entries in the general journal

to close the revenue, expense, and dividend accounts to

the retained earnings account, paying attention to debits

equaling credits.

11) Post the closing journal entries to the respective general

ledger accounts.

12) Calculate the balances in the general ledger accounts.

13) Create a post-closing trial balance from the balances

in the general ledger accounts using the same blank

form that was provided in step 5 when you created the

unadjusted trial balance. The post-closing trial balance

should be in the same format as the post-closing trial

balance provided at the beginning of the project for the

prior accounting period. Make sure the math is correct

and that the debit column is equal to the credit column.

If not, don’t continue until the error has been found.

14) Create the balance sheet for J & L Accounting, Inc. using

the information from the post-closing trial balance. If the

debits equal the credits from the previous work and the

closing entries were made properly, then the accounting

equation should balance on the balance sheet. If the assets

don’t equal the liabilities plus stockholders’ equity, an

error has been made that needs to be corrected. The balance

of the accounting equation is another fundamental

GAAP principle that can’t be violated. Use the following

form to create the balance sheet. Its format should be

the same as the format of the statement provided at the

beginning of the project for the prior accounting period.

15) Create the statement of retained earnings for J & L

Accounting, Inc. using the ending balance from the

statement of retained earnings from the prior period

and the net income from the income statement for the

January accounting period. (No dividends were paid out

during the month of January.) Follow the same format

from the statement of retained earnings at the beginning

of the graded project for the prior accounting period

using the blank form on the following page.

Having created the balance sheet, the income statement,

the statement of retained earnings, and the post-closing trial

balance on the blank forms that were provided, the financial

statements must now to be typed up in a Microsoft Word

document and saved as a .doc or .docx file. Microsoft Excel

can also be used (saving the file with the extension .xls or

.xlsx). Each financial statement should be on its own page

(or worksheet). The name of the file should include your student

ID number and the graded project exam number, such

as “21512345_061579.docx” as an example.

Insert tables in the Word document if you feel you need them

to format the financial statements. Alternatively, space and

tab in Word to get the formatting of the statements set up

correctly. Formatting is important. Also, keep in mind that

points will be deducted for incorrect capitalization, spelling,

underlining and double underlining, as well as for improper

headings, dates, indentations, and columns.

Create all of the financial statements in one file. Submission

of more than one file will result in the project being returned

as ungraded. Submission of only one file is important for

tracking and grading purposes.

Images or scanned images of the financial statements pasted

into a Word document will also result in the project being

returned as ungraded. This prevents the ability to “mark up”

the file, and financial statements that are handwritten are

generally considered unprofessional.

Only the financial statements are required. Submitted journals,

ledgers, or unadjusted/adjusted trial balances will not be

evaluated.

Pride

Response and Reflection Papers

Objectives

We’ll be reading eight novels this semester; you’ll respond to five of them in writing. Everyone

will write a response to Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. You must complete two more of your

choice before Fall Break (Oct. 19) and two more after.

In part, these response papers are intended to help create some momentum before class

discussion—we tend to be more comfortable talking when we have prepared some ideas in

writing. And, in part, these papers offer you a separate space to explore points that are of

particular interest to you, the plot points, thematic elements, character development, and so on

that catch your attention.

It’s also important to note what these papers are not: They are not plot summaries. They are not

observations. They are not a chance to rehash our class discussions. They also are not meant

to be considerations of personal experiences or extrapolations of events portrayed in the novels.

Instead, I’m hoping to read fresh insights about and thoughtful analyses of the texts, literary

arguments supported by textual evidence.

You are not required to consult outside sources for these papers, but you may if you feel that

doing so will help you make your argument more clearly or persuasively. These outside sources

can include those readings we’ll be doing for class, material you’ve encountered in other

classes, or the results of research you undertake on your own. In any case, remember to use

proper punctuation and citations for any material from the primary or any secondary sources.

You’ll be submitting your response papers online via Blackboard. You must submit a

response paper about a given novel by the beginning of class on the last day that we are

scheduled to discuss that novel, and you may only submit one Response Paper per

novel. You’re responsible for keeping up with how many you’ve done and how many you have

left to do. Each paper is worth 7% of your total grade; all five together make up 35% of your final

average.

Guidelines

Each response paper must:

• be approximately 2-3 pages in length;

• respond to a part of the text that has not yet been discussed in class;

• advance a clear thesis and support it with specific textual evidence;

• follow MLA style for document design and citations.

Reminders

• Even if you’re only citing the novel itself, you still need to include in-text citations and a

Works Cited entry. See me if you have any questions about MLA style!

• I’m happy to discuss your ideas with you at any point during the drafting process.

• See the syllabus for the last days to submit response papers for each text.
