Interest receivable on investments
Accrued interest payable
Additional adjusting data:
A physical count of supplies on hand on December 31, 2008, totaled $1,100.
Through oversight, the Accrued Salaries and Wages account was not changed during 2008.
Accrued salaries and wages on December 31, 2008, amounted to $4,400.
The Interest Receivable on Investments account was also left unchanged during 2008.
Accrued interest on investments amounts to $4,350 on December 31, 2008.
The unexpired portions of the insurance policies totaled $65,000 as of December 31, 2008.
$28,000 was received on January 1, 2008 for the rent of a building for both 2008 and 2009. The entire amount was credited to rental income.
Depreciation for the year was erroneously recorded as $5,000 rather than the correct figure of $50,000.
A further review of depreciation calculations of prior years revealed that depreciation of $7,200 was not recorded. It was decided that this oversight should be corrected by a prior period adjustment.
