P1-10A Primary Assumptions Made in Preparing Financial Statements

 

P1-10A Millie Abrams opened a ceramic studio in leased retail space, paying the first month’s rent of $300 and a $1,000 security deposit with a check on her personal account. She took molds and paint, worth about $7,500, from her home to the studio. She also bought a new firing kiln to start the business.

The new kiln had a list price of $5,000; but Millie was able to trade in her old kiln, worth $500 at the time of trade, on the new kiln. Therefore, she paid only $4,500 cash. She wrote a check on her personal account. Millie’s first customers paid a total of $1,400 to attend classes for the next two months. Millie opened a checking account in the company’s name with the $1,400. She has conducted classes for one month and has sold $3,000 of unfinished ceramic pieces called greenware. All greenware sales are cash. Millie incurred $1,000 of personal cost in making the greenware. At the end of the first month, Millie prepared the following balance sheet and income statement:
