To determine

Concept Introduction:

The balance sheet is a part of the financial statements of a company which provides an overall view of assets and liabilities along with equity of the company. This statement is prepared on a specified date containing all the ending balances of the financial accounts with regard to assets, liabilities, and equity.

To Prepare:

A rectified balance sheet for the year ended May 31,20Y5.

Explanation of Solution

The errors that are found in the balance sheet are:

  • The accounts payable is a current liability item and not the current asset. So, it should be under current liability.
  • The land is a tangible and non-current item and should be shown under property, plant, and equipment and not under current liability.
  • Accumulated depreciation is not any cash item to pay. It is a reduction from the cost of the asset as per its usage and obsolescence. Hence, it should be reduced from the cost of the respective asset and not to be a part of current liability.
  • The accounts receivable is a current asset item and not the current liability. So, it should be under the current asset.
  • Net loss is an adjustable item in the retained earnings. As the closing balance of retained earnings is provided, it means this net loss has been already adjusted. So, there is no need to report the same again in the current liability.
  • The wages payable is a current liability item and not the stockholders' equity. So, it should be under current liability.
