Question

A partial trial balance of Kapoor Corporation at December 31, 2011, follows:
Additional adjusting data:
1. A physical count of supplies on hand on December 31, 2011, totalled $2,100. Through an oversight, the Accrued Salaries and Wages account was not changed during 2011. Accrued salaries and wages on December 31, 2011, amounted to $5,100.
2. The Interest Receivable on Investments account was also left unchanged during 2011. Accrued interest on investments amounted to $4,750 on December 31, 2011.
3. The unexpired portions of the insurance policies totalled $65,000 as at December 31, 2011.
4. A cheque for $44,000 was received on January 1, 2011, for the rent of a building for both 2011 and 2012. The entire amount was credited to rental income.
5. Depreciation for the year was recorded in error as $5,350 rather than the correct figure of $53,500.
6. A further review of prior years’ depreciation calculations revealed that depreciation of $13,500 had not been recorded. It was decided that this oversight should be corrected by adjusting prior years’ income.
Assume that Kapoor applies IFRS.
