Question(s) / Instruction(s):

ACCT2020 Penington Corporation was formed on January 1, 2012. At December 31, 2012, Trent Radinsky, the president and sole stockholder, decided to prepare a balance sheet, which appeared as follows.


Balance Sheet

December 31, 2012

Assets                                                                                                   Liabilities and Stockholders\' Equity

Cash                                      $20,000                 Accounts Payable            $30,000

Accounts Receivable      50,000                                   Notes Payable   15,000

Inventory                            33,000                                   Boat Loan            18,000

Boat                                       24,000                                   Stockholders\' Equity       64,000

Trent willingly admits that he is not an accountant by training. He is concerned that his balance sheet might not be correct. He has provided you with the following additional information.

1.            The boat actually belongs to Radinsky, not to Penington Corporation. However, because he thinks he might take customers out on the boat occasionally, he decided to list it as an asset of the company. To be consistent he also listed as a liability of the corporation his personal loan that he took out at the bank to buy the boat.

2.            The inventory was originally purchased for $21,000, but due to a surge in demand Trent now thinks he could sell it for $33,000. He thought it would be best to record it at $33,000.

3.            Included in the accounts receivable balance is $12,000 that Trent loaned to his brother 5 years ago. Trent included this in the receivables of Penington Corporation so he wouldn\'t forget that his brother owes him money.
