A return of $235 of defective supplies was erroneously posted as a$325 credit to Supplies. e. An insurance policy acquired at a cost of $3,000 was posted as a credit to Prepaid Insurance. f. The balance of Notes Payable was overstated by$21,000. g. A credit of $3,450 in Accounts Payable was overlooked when the balance of the account was determined. h.

Miscellaneous Expense, with a balance of $4,600, was omitted from the trial balance. Instructions 1. Prepare a corrected unadjusted trial balance as of January 31, 2016. 2. Does the fact that the unadjusted trial balance in (1) is balanced mean that there are no errors in the accounts? Explain. 1. To determine Corrected unadjusted trial balance: The corrected unadjusted trial balance is the summary of all the ledger accounts that appears on the ledger accounts after making adjusting journal entries. The corrected unadjusted trial balance is also known as adjusted trial balance. To prepare: A corrected unadjusted trial balance as of January 31, 2016. Explanation Working notes: a. Cash={(Cash (unadjusted)Overstated cash+Incorrect posting of cash receipt debited to cash account (b.))}={($25,550$8,000)+($4,100$1,400)}=$25,550 (1)

c.

An amount of $12,350 was not debited to accounts receivable (asset) account. Hence, by debiting the amount, the accounts receivable in the corrected unadjusted trial balance would be$56,400[$44,050(unadjusted)+$12,350].

d.

As a return of defective supplies of $235 was wrongly credited to the supplies (asset) account as$325, it is to be corrected by debiting the Supplies account with an amount of $90($325$235). Hence, the amount of Supplies in the corrected unadjusted trial balance would be$6,750[$6,660(unadjusted)+$90].

e.

As the purchase of insurance policy at a cost of $3,000 was wrongly credited to prepaid insurance (asset) account, it is to be corrected by debiting the prepaid insurance account with an amount of$6,000 ($3,000+$3,000). Hence, the amount of prepaid insurance in the corrected unadjusted trial balance would be $9,600[$3,000(unadjusted)+\$6,000]
