Estimated costs to complete as of 12/31 120 60 -

1. Determine the amount of gross profit or loss to be recognized in each of the three years using the percentage-of-completion method. (Enter your answers in millions. Do not round intermediate calculations. Round final answers to 2 decimal places. Loss amounts should be indicated with a minus sign. Omit the "\$" sign in your response.)

2. How much revenue will Sanderson report in its 2011 and 2012 income statements related to this contract using the percentage-of-completion method? (Enter your answers in millions.

#### Solution Summary

Your tutorial is attached in Excel (click in cells to see computation). You can see from the schedules what the procedures is for each method in each year. Notice that the pattern is to compute the contract-to-date amounts for revenue and gross profit and back out what has already been recognized to get the "increment" needed for the current year. The incremental corrects the reports to reflect the cumulative contract activity.
