The van was expected to remain in service 4 years (30,000 miles). BagODonuts’ accountant estimated that the truck’s residual value would be $2,400 at the end of its useful life. The truck traveled 8,000 miles the first year, 8,500 miles the second year, 5,500 miles the third year, and 8,000 miles in the fourth year. 1.

Their corporate charter authorized the following capital stock: Preferred Stock: 7%, par value $100 per share, 100,000 shares. Common Stock: $1 par value, 500,000 shares. The following transactions occurred during the year: 1/19/12 – Issued 100,000 shares of common stock for $17 cash per share. 1/31/12 – Issued 3,000 shares of preferred stock for $115 cash per share. 11/1/12 – Repurchased 30,000 shares of common stock for $22 cash per share. 12/1/12 – Declared and paid a total dividend of $95,000. Required: 1. Prepare the journal entry for each transaction listed above. 2. In your own words, explain the main differences between common and preferred stock. (Points : 25)                   (Issued preferred shares) 11/1          Stock Repurchase 660,000.00  Cash                     660,000.00      Reacquired common shares 12/1          Dividends  95,000.00  Cash                     95,000.00     Declared and paid cash dividends 2. Preferred stock is a type of capital stock which has specific dividends that is  distributed first before common stockholders can receive any dividends  declared and paid. In the event  of liquidation, preferred stockholders are  prioritized first before common stockholders can receive any remaining assets of  the company.  Common stock enjoys voting rights which preferred stock don't  have. Common stock receives dividends only after the preferred dividends are  satisfied first. And if the business is liquidated, it receives any remaining assets  only after creditors and preferred shareholders have been paid or satisfied. 3.(TCO 5) Fraud is an intentional misrepresentation of facts, made for the purpose of persuading another party to act in a way that causes injury or damage to that party. In our readings and discussions we have seen several examples of fraud in business. Using that experience (1) provide an example of a common fraudulent practice in business with an explanation of how the practice works and (2) name and describe each of the elements of the Fraud Triangle. (Points : 25)               1. Securities or investment fraud, is a deceptive practice that induces investors to  make purchases or sale decisions on the basis of false information. This can  include embezzlement, insider trading, misstatements on company financial  records, and other illegal acts. 2. The three key elements in the fraud triangle are motive,  rationalization, and  opportunity. Motive is what causes the person to commit the fraud and usually  results from either critical need or greed on the part of the person. Opportunity is  what gives way to commit the fraud usually due to weak internal controls,  improper access or lax ethical practices. Finally rationalization, the person  committing the fraud convinces themselves that they deserve this, or that they are  doing it because no one treats them fairly or that simply everyone else does it. 4. (TCO 5) Internal Control Procedures are in place to protect the assets of every business as mentioned in the textbook and our discussions. Of the seven internal control procedures, list five of these controls and describe how each procedure is implemented. (5 points each with 2 points for listing and 3 points for a description)  (Points : 25)               Comparisons and Compliance Monitoring ensures that no person or department  should be able to completely process a transaction from beginning to end without  being cross­checked by another person or department. This will reduce errors  and establish a chain of command. Adequate Records provide the details of business transactions. The general rule  is that all major groups of transactions should be supported by either hard copy  documents or electronic records. This will create a traceable paper trail. Limited Access ­ complements segregation of duties, company policy should limit  access to assets only to those persons or departments that have custodial  responsibilities. For example, access to cash should be limited to persons in the  treasurer’s department.  Proper Approvals ensures no transaction should be processed without  management’s general or specific approval. The bigger the transaction, the more  specific approval it should have. Checks and balances will keep mistakes and  fraud to minimum. 5. (TCO 2) Below are the accounts of Super Pool Service, Inc. The accounts have normal balances on June 30, 2012. The  accounts are listed in no particular order. Account                              Balance  Common stock                    $5,100  Accounts payable                $4,400  Service revenue                   $17,100  Land                                  $28,800  Note payable                       $9,500  Cash                                  $5,200  Dividends                            $6,100  Utilities expense                  $2,100  Accounts receivable             $10,600  Delivery expense                 $700  Retained earnings                $25,600  Salary expense                    $8,200 Prepare the company’s trial balance as of June 30, 2012, listing accounts in proper sequence, as illustrated in the chapter. For  example, Accounts Receivable comes before Land. List the expense with the largest balance first, the expense with the next largest balance second, and so on.
