(4) Acquires merchandise inventories with a list price of $75,000 on account from suppliers.
(5) Acquires equipment with a list price of $6,000. It deducts a $600 discount and pays the net amount in cash. The firm treats cash discounts as a reduction in the acquisition cost of equipment.
(6) Pays freight charges of $350 for delivery of the equipment in (5). The firm treats freight charges as part of the acquisition cost of the equipment.
(7) Discovers that merchandise inventories with a list price of $800 are defective and returns them to the supplier for full credit. The merchandise inventories had been purchased on account—see (4)—and no payment had been made as of the time that the goods were returned.
(8) Signs a contract for the rental of a fleet of automobiles beginning February 1. Pays the $1,400 rental for February in advance.
(9) Pays invoices for merchandise inventories purchased in (4) with an original list price of $60,000, after deducting a discount of 3% for prompt payment. The firm treats cash discounts as a reduction in the acquisition cost of merchandise inventories.
(10) Obtains fire and liability insurance coverage from Southwest Insurance Company.
The two-year policy, beginning February 1, carries a $2,400 premium that has not yet been paid.
(11) Signs a contract with a customer for $20,000 of merchandise that Patterson plans to deliver in the future. The customer advances $4,500 toward the contract price.
(12) Acquires a warehouse costing $60,000 on January 31. The firm makes a down payment of $7,000 and assumes a 20-year, 6% mortgage for the balance. Information for later use: Interest is payable on January 31 each year.
(13) Discovers that merchandise inventories with an original list price of $1,500 are defective and returns them to the supplier. This inventory was paid for in (9). The returned merchandise inventories are the only items purchased from this particular supplier during January. A cash refund has not yet been received from the supplier.
(14) On January 31, the firm purchases 6,000 shares of $10 par value common stock of the General Cereal Corporation for $95,000. This purchase is a short-term use of excess cash. The shares of General Cereal Corporation trade on the New York Stock Exchange.
