Pirate Pete Moving Corporation has been in operation since January

Pirate Pete Moving Corporation has been in operation since January 1, 2017. It is now December 31, 2017, the end of the annual accounting period. The company has not done well financially during its first year, although revenue has been fairly good. Three shareholders manage the company, but they have not given much attention to record-keeping. In view of a serious cash shortage, they have applied to your bank for a $20,000 loan. As a loan officer, you requested a complete set of financial statements. The following 2017 annual financial statements were prepared by the company’s office staff. 

PIRATE PETE MOVING CORPORATION PIRATE PETE MOVING CORPORATION Income Statement Balance Sheet for the year ended December 31, 2017 At December 31, 2017 Transportation Revenue $85,000 Assets Expenses: Cash $ 2,000 Salaries Expense 17,000 Accounts Receivable 3,000 Supplies Expense 12,000 Supplies 6,000 Other Expenses 18.000 Equipment 40,000 Prepaid Insurance Remaining

After briefly reviewing the statements and looking into the situation, you requested that the statements be redone (with some expert help) to incorporate depreciation, accruals, supply counts, income taxes, and so on. As a result of a review of the records and supporting documents, the following additional information was developed: 

a. The Supplies amount of $6,000 shown on the balance sheet has not been adjusted for supplies used during 2017. A count of the supplies on hand on December 31, 2017, showed $1,800. 

b. The insurance premium paid in 2017 was for years 2017 and 2018. The total insurance premium was debited in full to Prepaid Insurance when paid in 2017 and no adjustment has been made. 

c. The equipment cost $40,000 when it was purchased January 1, 2017. It had an estimated annual depreciation of $8,000. No depreciation has been recorded for 2017. 

d. Unpaid (and unrecorded) salaries at December 31, 2017, amounted to $2,200. 

e. At December 31, 2017, transportation revenue collected in advance amounted to $7,000. This amount was credited in full to Transportation Revenue when the cash was collected earlier during 2017.

1. Prepare the adjusting journal entries required on December 31, 2017, based on the preceding additional information. You may need to create new accounts not yet included in the income statement or balance sheet.
