Question

Jane Baldwin, Anderson Flooring's accounting intern, has prepared the following income statement for the month of June. In preparing the income statement, Jane was unsure what to do with $250,000 in corporate fixed expenses that cannot be traced to a particular division. Since these costs were incurred to run the business as a whole, and she believed that each division benefited equally, she just allocated half to each division.


Required
a. How do you think Jane should have handled the $250,000 in corporate fixed expenses?
b. Prepare a segment margin income statement that highlights each division's contribution to corporateprofits.
