Correction of Allowance Account. From inception of operations in 2004 Summit carried no allowance for doubtful accounts. Uncollectible receivables were expensed as written off, and recoveries were credited to income as collected. On March 1, 2008 (after the 2007 financial statements were issued), management recognized that accounts were necessary. A policy was established to maintain an allowance for doubtful accounts based on Summit's historical bad debt loss percentage applied to year-end accounts receivable. The historical bad debt loss percentage is to be recomputed each year based on the relationship of net write-offs to credit sales for all available past years up to a maximum of five years.
Information from Summit's records for five years is as follows:

Credit Accounts
Year Sales Written Off Recoveries
2004 $1,500,000 $15,000 $0

Accounts receivable balances were $1,250,000 and $1,460,000 at December 31, 2007 and December 31, 2008 respectively.
