# Prepare a vertical analysis of the balance sheet for Royal Equipment Supply, Inc., on pages 487-488.

To determine

The balance sheet of Royal Equipment Supply, Inc. for June 30,2016, if cash account is $3,400, accounts receivables are$5,600, merchandise inventory is $98,700, prepaid insurance is$455, supplies are $800, land and building is$147,000, fixtures are $8,600, delivery vehicles are$27,000, forklift is $7,000, goodwill is$10,000, accounts payables are $16,500, notes payables are$10,000, common stock is $185,055, mortgage payable is$67,000 and retained earnings are $30,000. Explanation Given Information: The cash account is$3,400, accounts receivables are $5,600, merchandise inventory is$98,700, prepaid insurance is $455, supplies are$800, land and building is $147,000, fixtures are$8,600, delivery vehicles are $27,000, forklift is$7,000, goodwill is $10,000, accounts payables are$16,500, notes payables are $10,000, common stock is$185,055, mortgage payable is $67,000 and retained earnings are$30,000.

Formula used:

Follow the steps to prepare a vertical analysis of a balance sheet:

Step 1: Using the percentage formula, Rate=Portion÷Base to compute the percentage of each item on the balance sheet. Use each item as the portion and total assets as the base.

Step 2: Round each answer to the nearest tenth of percent.

Step 3: Write the percent of each balance sheet item in a column to the right of the monetary amount.

Consider the provided information,

The cash account is $3,400, accounts receivables are$5,600, merchandise inventory is $98,700, prepaid insurance is$455, supplies are $800, land and building is$147,000, fixtures are $8,600, delivery vehicles are$27,000, forklift is $7,000, goodwill is$10,000, accounts payables are $16,500, notes payables are$10,000, common stock is $185,055, mortgage payable is$67,000 and retained earnings are $30,000. Compute Total Current Assets by adding all the current assets, Total Current Assets=Cash+Accounts receivables+Merchandise inventory+Prepaid salary+Supplies=3,400+5,600+98,700+455+800=$108,955

Compute percentage of Total Current Assets as,

% of Total Current Assets=Cash%+Accounts receivables%+Merchandise inventory%+Prepaid salary%+Supplies%=1.1+1.8+32+0.1+0.3=35.3%

Compute total of Property, Plant and Equipment by adding all Property, Plant and Equipment as,

Total of Property, Plant and Equipment=Land and Building+Fixture+DeliveryVehicles+Forklift=147,000+8,600+27,000+7,000=$189,600 Now, compute percentage of total of Property, Plant and Equipment as, % of Total of Property, Plant and Equipment=Land and Building%+Fixture%+DeliveryVehicles%+Forklift%=47.6+2.8+8.8+2.3=61.4% Compute Total Assets by adding the current assets and property, plant and equipment, Total Assets=Total Current Assets+Total of Property, Plant and Equipment+Invetments and other Assets=108,955+189,600+10,000=$308,555

Now, compute the percentage of Total Assets as,

% of Total Assets=Total Current Assets%+Total of Property, Plant and Equipment%+Invetments and other Assets%=35.3+61.4+3.3=100%

Compute Total Current Liabilities by adding all current liabilities,

Total Current Liabilities=Accounts payable+Notes payable=16,500+10,000=\$26,500

Now, compute the percentage of Total Current Liabilities as,

% of Total Current Liabilities=Accounts payable%+Notes payable%=5
