Maynard Company Income Statement Preparation

Please help me prepare an income statement and answer the following questions for this situation:

Diane Maynard was grateful for the balance sheets that her friend prepared. ( I attached the balance sheet I did) In going over the numbers, she remarked, "it's sort of surprising that cash increased by $31677, but net income was only $19635. Why was that? Her friend replied, "A partial answer to that question is to look at an income statement for June. I think I can find the data I need to prepare one for you." In addition to the data given in the case, her friend found a record of cash reciepts and disbursements, which is summarized in Exhibit 1. She also learned that all accounts payable were to vendors for purchase of merchandise inventory and that cost of sale was $39345 in June.

1. Prepare an income statement for June in proper format. Explain the derivation of each item on this statement, including cost of sales.

2. Explain why the change in the cash balance was greater than the net income.

Solution Preview

You did good as far as you went, but it is difficult to make this kind of analysis without preparing journal entries. The part you are having trouble with is the change in the balance sheet amounts. You need only deal with the change.

For example, insurance expense is 3150 - 2826 = 324. You attempted to expense the entire balance rather than just the change. Depreciation is only the change of 2574 too.

There are a couple of tricky ...
