1. Included in selling and administrative expenses were $5,000 of costs incurred on software being developed for sale to others. The technological feasibility of the software has been established.
2. Based on an aging of the accounts receivable as of November 30, 2010, it was estimated that $36,000 of the receivables will be uncollectible.
3. Inventories at November 30, 2010, did not include work-in-process inventory costing $12,000 sent to an outside processor on November 26, 2010.
4. A $3,000 insurance premium paid on November 30, 2010 on a policy expiring one year later was charged to insurance expense.
5. Bryant adopted a pension plan on June 1, 2010 for eligible employees to be administered by a trustee. Based upon actuarial computations, the first 12 month’s accrued pension plan expense was estimated at $45,000.
6. On June 1, 2010, a production machine purchased for $24,000 was charged to repairs and maintenance. Bryant depreciates machines of this type on the straight-line method over a five-year life, with no salvage value, for financial and tax purposes.
7. Research and development costs of $150,000 were incurred in the development of a patent that Bryant expects to be granted during the fiscal year ending November 30, 2011. Bryant initiated a five-year amortization of the $150,000 total cost during the fiscal year ended November 30, 2010.

9. The 30% effective tax rate was determined to be appropriate for calculating the provision for income taxes for the fiscal year ended November 30, 2010. Ignore computation of the deferred portion of income taxes.
