Question

The sales, all on account, of Pins Company in 2013, its first year of operations, were $700,000. Collections totaled $500,000. On December 31, 2013, Pins Company estimated that 2% of all sales would probably be uncollectible. On that date, Pins Company wrote off specific accounts in the amount of $8,000.
The balances in selected accounts on December 31, 2014, are as follows:
Accounts Receivable, Gross (Dr.) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . $300,000
Allowance for Uncollectible Accounts (Dr.) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 10,000
Sales Revenues (Cr.) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 800,000
On December 31, 2014, Pins Company carried out an aging of its accounts receivable balances and estimated that the 2014 ending balance of accounts receivable contained $11,000of probable uncollectibles. That is, the allowance account should have an $11,000 ending credit balance. It made adjusting entries appropriate for this estimate. Some of the $800,000 sales during 2014 were for cash and some were on account; the problem purposefully does not give the amounts.
