From what he remembered, his debts and accounts receivable were higher than the previous year. Rather than get worked up over nothing, he decided he would gather the information and make a comparison.

Current liabilities were accounts payable $13,446; wages payable $650; and property and taxes payable $4,124. Long-term debt totaled $92,800 and owner’s equity $70,959.

21.2 Balanced Books Bookkeeping
Jessica and David are student interns at Balanced Books Bookkeeping. They have taken several business math and accounting classes and are now applying what they have learned to real-life situations. They enjoy their internship, but they are sometimes surprised by the assignments they are given. Luckily, they work together, so they share the assignments and learn from each other. Their most recent assignment is to take a listing of accounts provided by one of Balanced Books’ clients and turn them into a balance sheet and income statement. David suggests that their client might appreciate it if they also performed a vertical analysis of each statement. Jessica suggests that they should also compute the current ratio and the acid-test ratio.
