Under the terms of the agreements, an initial deposit of 20% is payable on delivery, followed by four equal quarterly instalments, the first being due three months after the date of sale. During the year sales were made as follows:
The goods sold in July were returned in September and eventually sold in November for £187 cash.
All other instalments are paid on the due dates.
It may be assumed that:

You are to prepare for the first year of trading, an extract of the hire purchase statement of profit or loss showing gross profit compiled firstly on assumption (a) and secondly on assumption (b) and give the relevant statement of financial position entries under each assumption. Workings should be clearly shown.
