On 1 January, Johnson set up Valleyview Playgyms Company to manufacture and sell childrens outdoor playgyms. He was an engineer by profession but he understood the importance of accounting information and kept his accounting records meticulously throughout the year. At the end of the year he prepared the following income statement for the year:
Valleyview Playgyms Company
for the year ended 31st December, 2012
Less Operating expenses:
Purchase of Raw Material
Purchase of factory supplies
Wages of the factory employees (who worked directly on the playgyms)
Wages for other factory employees
Office staff salaries
Sales Staff salaries
Purchase of factory equipment
Purchase of Office Equipment
Purchase of Sales vehicles
Total Operating expenses
Although disappointed, Johnson was not surprised. He knew that expenses were higher than sales because, throughout the year, he had been able to generate a cash surplus. His bank overdraft had blown out and his bank manager has asked him to present his financial statements for 2012 to the bank.
You are the banks accountant and the bank manager has asked you to:
1. Review the performance of Valleyview Playgyms in 2012 and make a recommendation as to whether Johnsons overdraft facility should be cancelled.
2. Prepare a report for Johnson explaining the errors he made in his income statement.
To perform this analysis you will need to recast Johnsons income statement. The following information may be useful:
· The factory occupies 80 per cent of the rented building, the sales area 15 per cent and the administration area 5 per cent.
· All the companys fixed assets are estimated to have a useful life for five years and no salvage value at the end of their life.
· Johnson spends 50 per cent of his time as factory manager and spends the remaining time equally on sales and general administration.
· Electricity costs are consumed almost entirely by the factory.
· At 31 December 2012, the following inventories existed:
· Raw Material $20,000
· Work in Process $40 000
· Finished Goods $51 500
