Sing Sing Singers (SSS) is a local opera company. It finances its activities through contributions and admissions fees. It accounts for its expenses though four major functions: regular events, special events, administration, and fund- raising. For each function, it maintains three object accounts: salaries, supplies and other, and occupancy. On July 1, 2012, the start of its fiscal year, SSS had cash on hand amounting to $ 12,000, of which $ 7,000 represented unrestricted net assets and $ 5,000 represented temporarily restricted net assets.
