During the year, the following transactions were completed:

a.       Raw materials purchased on account, £160,000.

j.       Sales (all on account) to customers during the year totaled £498,000. These goods had cost

2.       Prepare T-accounts for inventories, Manufacturing Overhead, and Cost of Goods Sold. Post relevant data from your journal entries to these T-accounts (don’t forget to enter the opening balances in your inventory accounts). Compute an ending balance in each account.

3.       Is Manufacturing Overhead underapplied or overapplied for the year? Prepare a journal entry to close any balance in the Manufacturing Overhead account to Cost of Goods Sold.

4.       Prepare an income statement for the year. (Do not prepare a schedule of cost of goods manu- factured; all of the information needed for the income statement is available in the journal entries and T-accounts you have prepared.)
