Module 3 – SLPBalance SheetWe’re continuing to analyze the same company as in Modules 1 and 2. Additional information added in Module 2One client indicated that they were interested in purchasing $42,500 worth of products. However, the client has not actually committed to the purchase. The bookkeeper already corrected the sales account. However, the bookkeeper may have made a mistake when computing cost of goods sold. She included total production costs for 2014 and did not adjust ending inventory for the $42,500 worth of units left at the end of the year. The amount of ending inventory was determined using a physical count.
