Read ALL instructions before getting started! ABC Corporation is a new company that buys and sells office supplies. Business began on January 1, 2012. Given on the first two tabs are ABC’s 12/31/12 Unadjusted Trial Balance and a list of needed adjustments. 1. Make all 14 adjustments on the “Adjusting Journal Entries” tab. Remember to include a description under each journal entry. 2. Post the adjustments to the general ledger on the “12-31-12 T-Accounts” tab. You may have to add T-Accounts for new accounts. Link your T-Account entries to your Journal Entries. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE “BB” (BEGINNING BALANCES) FOR THE T-ACCOUNTS REPRESENT THE BALANCES AS OF 12/1/12. 3. Once the 12/31/12 T-Accounts are complete, prepare the Adjusted Trial Balance. There may be some accounts with zero dollars, and you may have to insert lines for new accounts. Link the Adjusted Trial Balance to your T-Accounts. 4. Use the Adjusted Trial Balance numbers to complete the Income Statement, Statement of Retained Earnings, Balance Sheet, and Statement of Cash Flows. For purposes of the Income Statement, prepare using the multiple step format and assume that Rent Revenue, any Unrealized Holding Gains/Losses, Interest Expense, Interest Revenue, and any other Gains/Losses are NOT part of the major central ongoing operations of the company. Link your financial statements to your Adjusted Trial Balance. Use the Income Statement and Balance Sheet to finish the partially completed Statement of Cash Flows. Since this is ABC’s first year of operations, several line items on the Statement of Cash Flows have already been supplied to you. If necessary, review financial statement preparation in Chapters 4 and 5 of your textbook for a quick refresher. Plan on using your knowledge gained in completing Chapter 23 to with the preparation of the Statement of Cash Flows. Additionally, since this is ABC Corporation’s first year of operations, the adjusted trial balance for all current assets and liabilities represents the change during the year for Statement of Cash Flows analysis purposes. 5. When the Financial Statements are complete, make the closing entries on the “Closing Entries” tab. 6. When closing entries have been made, post the entries to the general ledger on the “After-Close T-Accounts” tab. Make sure your adjusting journal entries are also on your After-Close T-Accounts. They will not automatically flow from tab-to-tab. 7. The final step is the Post-Closing Trial Balance, which will use the ending balances from the 1/1/13 T-Accounts. 8. Double-check your work. Here are a few things to check for: -Adjusted Trial Balance: Make sure debit column and credit column total to the same figure at the bottom. -Net income from the income statement will flow through to the Statement of Retained Earnings. -Ending Retained Earnings from the Statement of Retained Earnings will flow through to the Balance Sheet. -Ending Cash balance from the Balance Sheet should match your ending Cash balance on the Statement of Cash Flows. -The Post-Closing Trial Balance should not have any revenue, expense, gain, or loss accounts. -Check figure 1: Gross profit = $372,450. -Check figure 2: Income before income taxes = $208,147. -Check figure 3: Total Assets = $906,151. -Check figure 4: Cash flow provided by operating activities = $17,840. -Check figure 5: Adjusted Trial Balance debit and credit columns total $1,520,008. -Remember: Neatness matters in Financial Statements. Print or Print Preview before submitting to make sure your statements are neat. Otherwise, management may send back to you for revision! -Include your work at the bottom of each tab as needed. -Ask questions prior to the day/night before the due date. The due date is clearly indicated on the course schedule. -Utilize formulas and worksheet linkings in your financial statements to improve accuracy and save time in completing the assignment. – take advantage of Excel by using formulas to calculate groups of numbers (i.e. “Total Liabilities and Stockholders’ Equity”). Final comments: This project is intended to make sure that you understand the accounting cycle as well as several key financial accounting transactions that you have studied during your Intermediate Accounting series. It is very important to take the necessary time on this project to master these concepts. The concepts mastered in this comprehensive problem will serve you well in Advanced Accounting and the rest of your accounting curriculum.

Submit to assignment folder and turnitin.com The societal engagement provides a significant focus on some of the critical issues, which need to be discussed and provide a beneficial environment where it is possible to achieve a higher level of engagement within a given community. Moral issues define individual relations within a community environment. Moral issues, therefore, involve a difference in ideologies where an idea that is held by a specific group might harm the wellbeing of others within the same social environment. Thus, they are issues that involve a difference in belief rather than preference. Moral issues are also explained based on a similar perspective with ethical issues since they focus on developing a higher level of understanding within a given social environment (Ljunge, 2014). Therefore, a moral issue that will form the basis of this research is the current issue within my community where immigrants are considered second to natives (Americans). The idea that an individual has more right to a safe country than another individual because they are born in the country is a significant moral issue that needs to be highly engaged. The consideration of immigrants as second to natives is a moral issue because this notion advances a very complicated idea that is based on open discrimination against one another. The immigrants have same rights as natives, and no specific element creates a difference between them and the natives. This moral issue has created significant differences between the natives and immigrants since the immigrants consider themselves as being inferior to natives. Even though it is true that immigrants are born in other countries, the fact that they live together with natives should form an essential background where they need to develop positive relations with natives without any form of discrimination. Discrimination within the society is a serious societal issue, which is based on the existing stereotypes and ideologies against immigrants. A critical stereotype that exists among the natives is that immigrants come to create unnecessary competition on the existing resources and jobs and thus create a negative attitude towards the immigrants. It is essential to understand that immigrants usually come because of different reason with a key reason being a search for better lives since most of them comes from unstable countries where there is war because of political or social differences between citizens. It is, therefore, necessary to show love to such individuals to understand the exact definition of humanity and not to see them as competition, which is based on negative stereotypes that have been created (Caldwell-Harris, 2015). The existing difference in values and cultural beliefs should form the basis under which diversity within the community should be appreciated and ensure that individuals live harmoniously where they interact freely without any limitations. Discriminatory issues were rampant in the past, and thus there is need to maintain moral and ethical standards where it is possible to ensure that there are positive interactions between individuals regardless of their background. Morality is based on a crucial focus on the needs of each other where individuals can be able to coexist and advance similar ideologies to promote better societal moral standards (Oberman, 2017).
