Assume that the A division of Alien Corporation experienced the following transactions during the year ended December 31, 2013:
a. Suppose division A supplied copy services for a customer for the discounted price of $252,000. Under normal conditions they would have provided these services for $294,000. Other revenues totaled $59,000.
b. Salaries cost the division $20,000 to provide these services. The division had to pay employees overtime occasionally. Ordinarily, the salary costs for these services would have been $18,100.
c. All other expenses excluding income taxes, $249,000 for the year. Income tax expense was 33% of income before tax.
d. The A division has two operating subdivisions: basic retail and special contracts. Each subdivision is accounted for separately to indicate how well each if performing. However, the A division combines the statements of all subdivisions to show results for the A division as a whole.
e. Inflation affects the amounts that the division must pay for copy machines. To show the affects of inflation, net income would drop by $5,000.
f. If the A division were to go out of business, the sale of its assets would bring in $141,000 in cash.
