Alternatively, an Excel workbook may be used (.xls or .xlsx file). A Rich Text Format (.rtf file) may be used by Mac users. The Word, Excel, or Rich Text Format file will be uploaded for grading. PROJECT INFORMATION Read the following information thoroughly before beginning your work. This will help you become familiar with the project. The material you need to know to complete the project has been covered in the textbook and in the assigned exercises and problems. If you understood the chapters and completed the assigned homework problems, you should have no problem with the project. The project is to be done by hand with a pencil and paper. Use the blank forms provided. (Make as many copies as needed.) At the end of the project, you’ll be given instructions for creating and uploading the financial statements in a Word, Excel, or Rich Text Format file for grading. Note: It’s important to format financial statements properly. They must follow Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), which create a uniformity of financial statements for analyzing. This allows for an easier comparison, as all businesses follow GAAP. Therefore, the financial statements you create should replicate those in the textbook. Failure to do so will result in a loss of points. ICE CREAM SYSTEMS Graded Project © PENN FOSTER, INC. 2017 P AGE 3 This project references “debits equaling credits.” This is a fundamental principle of accounting, and violation of this principle is not acceptable under any circumstance. If debits don’t equal credits, it suggests that someone has “cooked the books” or pre – sented false information. It also allows for embezzlement. If debits don’t equal credits, the cause may be a lack of understanding of accounting principles or carelessness when making journal entries, posting to the general ledger accounts, or completing the math. Remember that instructors are available to help you! If your mistakes are careless, go back over the work slowly until the error is found. The accounting equation must balance on the balance sheet. This is another fundamen – tal principle of accounting that can’t be violated. Unbalanced equations are completely unacceptable . When the equation doesn’t balance, it’s easily detectable by someone who knows accounting, and it suggests the numbers have been “fudged.” If your debits equal your credits and you understand which general ledger accounts belong on which financial statements, then the accounting equation should balance. It’s really all about understand – ing the concepts and applying that understanding. The following financial statements are provided for ICS: 1. Chart of Accounts 2. Post-Closing Trial Balance 3.

ActualDateEstimate Actual COST SUMMARY Estimate Actual Materials Labor Factory Overhead Total Job Cost ICE CREAM SYSTEMS Graded Project © PENN FOSTER, INC. 2017 P AGE 13 The following is the background information necessary for completion of the accounting period as it relates to Ice Cream Systems Inc. (ICS): 1 ICS manufactures and sells ice cream machines, refrigeration systems, and parts for these systems. It manufactures all machines and parts in a single production department. 2. As the controller of the company , you’re responsible for daily accounting operations, adjusting and closing the monthly accounting periods, and preparation of financial statements. 3. ICS operates on a calendar-year basis from January 1 to December 31 with a monthly accounting period. It uses a job-order cost system. 4. Jobs that are in process are recorded on Job Cost Records. Reco rds are maintained for each job. New jobs are assigned numbers sequentially. They contain the accumulated costs for direct material, direct labor, and factory overhead. (For the purposes of this project, it’s assumed that all jobs prior to the current accounting period are either in process or complete and all resulting entries have been made in the previous accounting period.) 5. ICS makes all journal entries in the General Journal. No special journals are used. 6. For purposes of this project, cash doesn’t need to be reconciled to a bank statement. 7 Information related to Payroll: n Payroll is paid monthly on the last day of each month. Therefore, there’s no accrual for payroll. n Gross pay for direct labor goes to Finished Goods or Work in Process if appropriate. n Salaries for non-factory workers go to the appropriate salary expense accounts. n The company’s salesperson works on 10% straight commission of sales during the month. n Federal Withholding Tax is 15% of gross pay for everyone and is recorded whenever gross pay is recorded. FWT is remitted monthly for the previous month. n There are no deductions for state or local withholding tax. n FICA tax rate is 7.65% of gross pay. (FICA is Social Security and Medicare.) Since this is the first month of the new year, no one will reach the Social Security limit. FICA is remitted monthly for the previous month. ICE CREAM SYSTEMS Graded Project © PENN FOSTER, INC. 2017 P AGE 14 n FUTA tax rate is 0.8% of gross wages with no limit. SUTA tax rate is 1.45% of gross wages with no limit. FUTA and SUTA are paid yearly in January (for the previous year). n There are no other miscellaneous deductions, such as union dues. n All employer payroll taxes (employer’s portion of FICA, FUTA, and SUTA) are recorded on the last day of the month. n Employer payroll taxes related to factory workers go to Factory Overhead. n Employer payroll taxes related to all non-factory workers go to Payroll T ax Expense. 8. ICS has two material accounts: n Direct Materials n Indirect Materials and Factory Supplies 9. Factory Overhead is applied to each job at 25% of direct labor costs for that job. 10. Debits to Factory Overhead represent actual overhead, and credits represent applied overhead. The difference between actual and applied factory overhead is insignificant and should be closed out to Cost of Goods Sold as an adjusting entry at the end of each month. 11. Markups to determine the selling price of a job for ICS are 150% of estimated job costs. All sales are exempt from sales tax, as ICS sells locally to resellers. 12. Shipping isn’t a consideration for the purposes of this project. 13. ICS uses a perpetual inventory system. When a sale is made, debit Cost of Goods Sold and credit Finished Goods for the cost of the job. 14. All sales are on account with terms of net 30 days. No discounts are given. 15. All cash/checks received are deposited in the Cash account. 16. No separate bank account is kept for payroll. 17. Direct materials, indirect materials, and factory supplies are purchased on account. 18. T erms from all vendors for expenses are net 30 days. 19. Factory Supplies are added to the Indirect Materials and Factory Supplies general ledger account. 20. A periodic inventory system is used for office supplies with all purchases going to inventory. 21. All payments—referred to as cash or check—are made by check from the Cash Account. (For purposes of this project, no check register or checks will be given. No reconciliation of the cash account will be required. Assume that all checks are written.)

Post the general journal entries to the General Ledger , the Accounts Receivable Ledger, and the Accounts Payable Ledger. Use the Post Ref. column to ensure that each line item of the journal entries is posted correctly to each general ledger account. Posting from the journal to the ledger is nothing more than rearranging the information; however, focus and concentrate because it’s easy to make a mistake. 4. Calculate the balances in the general ledger accounts. Use an Excel spreadsheet or a printing calculator to run the numbers several times. Don’t use a hand-held calculator, as it’s far too easy to make a mistake using it. 5. Prepare the Schedules of Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable. 6. Prepare an Unadjusted Trial Balance using the balances from the general ledger accounts.

Prepare an Income Statement following the formats shown in the Example Company Statements using the following blank form as a worksheet: ICE CREAM SYSTEMS Graded Project © PENN FOSTER, INC. 2017 P AGE 22 ICE CREAM SYSTEMS Graded Project © PENN FOSTER, INC. 2017 P AGE 23 11. Journalize and post the closing journal entries in the general journal. Jan. 31— Prepare closing entries to close revenue and expense accounts to Income Summary and transfer the net income to Retained Earnings. 12. Post the closing journal entries to the respective ledger accounts and calculate new balances for those accounts. 13. Prepare a Post-Closing Trial Balance using the balances from the general ledger accounts. Use the blank form that was provided in step six. 14. From the Post-Closing Trial Balance, create the Balance Sheet following the for – mats shown in the Example Company Statements using the following blank form as a worksheet: ICE CREAM SYSTEMS Graded Project © PENN FOSTER, INC. 2017 P AGE 24 ICE CREAM SYSTEMS Graded Project © PENN FOSTER, INC. 2017 P AGE 25 After creating the balance sheet, income statement, and the post-closing trial balance on the blank forms provided, the financial statements must now be typed up in one W ord document and saved as a .doc or .docx file. Excel can also be used, saving the file with the extension .xls or .xlsx. The financial statements can also be saved using the Rich Text Format (.rtf) file extension. Each statement should be on its own page (or worksheet). The name of the file should include your student ID number and the graded project exam number, such as “12345678_061466.docx”. Use tables in the Word document if you feel you need them to format the financial state – ments. Alternatively, you can space and tab in Word to format the statements correctly. Formatting is important; keep in mind that points will be deducted for incorrect capital – ization, spelling, underlining, and double underlining. Deductions will also be made for improper headings, dates, indentations, and columns. Follow the examples provided in the Instructions section of the project. Create all financial statements in one file. Submission of more than one file will result in the project being returned ungraded! Submission of only one file is important for tracking and grading purposes. Images or scans of the financial statements inserted into a Word document will also result in the project being returned ungraded. This prevents the ability to “mark up” the file, and financial statements that are handwritten are generally considered unprofessional and unacceptable in the business world. Only the financial statements are required. Submitted journals, ledgers, or an unadjusted trial balance and adjusted trial balance will not be evaluated. ICE CREAM SYSTEMS Graded Project © PENN FOSTER, INC. 2017 P AGE 26 SUBMITTING YOUR PROJECT Once you’ve completed the project and your one file is ready to be submitted, follow the instructions below. Be sure to check your work and to upload the correct file. Each project is individually graded by your instructor and therefore takes up to a few weeks to grade. Be sure that each of your three files contains the following information: n Your name n Your student ID number n The exam number (06146600) n Your email address To submit your graded project, follow these steps: 1. Go to http://www.pennfoster.edu. 2. Log in to your student portal. 3. Click on Take Exam next to the lesson you’re working on. 4. Follow the instructions provided to complete your exam. Be sure to keep a backup copy of any files you submit to the school! GRADING CRITERIA The grading criteria for the project are as follows: The formatting of the three financial statements is worth 12 points each, for a total of 36 points (3 × 12 = 36). An out-of-balance accounting equation on the balance sheet will result in a loss of 13 points for the formatting of the balance sheet even though other formatting issues may be correct. Debits not equaling credits on the post-closing trial balance will result in a loss of 13 points for the post-closing trial balance even though other formatting issues may be correct. Also, not having made closing journal entries as reflected on the post-closing trial balance will result in a loss of 13 points for formatting of the post-closing trial balance even though other formatting issues may be correct. Deductions for figures on the financial statements are based on the 42 balances from the general ledger accounts. Each balance is worth 1.5 points (1.5 × 42 = 63). The total deduction will be rounded up to the next whole number. ICE CREAM SYSTEMS Graded Project © PENN FOSTER, INC. 2017 P AGE 27 Thus, the formatting of the financial statements (worth 30 points) plus the figures used for the financial statements (worth 70 points in total) provide 100 points for the project. Formatting 36 points Figures 63 points Adjustment (rounding) 1 point Total Points 100 points If a project receives a failing grade (less than 70 points), the project will have to be reworked and resubmitted for final grading. The highest grade that can be obtained on a retake is 70, which is passing. If the project receives a passing grade on its initial submission, no resubmission is allowed. PLAGIARISM Plagiarism is taking any part of a published piece of work and using it as your own. Plagiarism is unacceptable at Penn Foster College. This is a reminder of the expectation to which all Penn Foster College students are held. Per your Student Handbook, students are expected to conduct themselves with the highest academic and ethical standards. Failure to do so results in disciplinary action. Good luck with the project!
