Additional Information
• The provincial government agreed to provide an operating grant of $50,000 per year. In addition, the government has pledged to match contributions collected by the centre for the purchase of land for construction of a new complex for the centre. The maximum contribution by the government toward the purchase of land is $100,000.
• The centre has signed an agreement to purchase a property in the downtown area of Smallville for $225,000. There is an old house on the property, which is currently used as a rooming house. The closing date is any time between July 1, Year 6, and December 31, Year 6. The centre plans to demolish the existing house and build a new complex.
• The centre has recently commenced a fundraising program to raise funds to purchase the land and construct a new building. So far, $58,000 has been raised from individuals toward the purchase of the land. In the new year, the centre will focus its efforts to solicit donations from businesses in the area. The provincial government will advance the funds promised under its pledge on the closing date for the purchase of the property.
• All the people working for the centre are volunteers except for the executive director and the counselors. The executive director receives a salary of $36,000 a year, while the counselors bill the centre for professional services rendered based on the number of hours they work at the centre. The director has not yet received her salary for the month of December. One of the counselors received an advance of $1,000 in December Year 5, for work to be performed in January Year 6.
• The centre wishes to use the deferral method of accounting for contributions and to segregate its net assets between restricted and unrestricted. It capitalizes the cost of capital assets and amortizes the capital assets over their use full lives.
