Additional Project information:
• Ensure you are using the December 31 balance sheet for the beginning balances of your accounts.
• When you are setting up your accounts use the chart of accounts included on the front page (you will not need to create any new account or account number).
• Please follow the journal entry format from the first two weeks of class.
• There is only one general journal where all transactions are recorded.
• Pay close attention to the transactions as they are listed on page three, these are not all transactions that you will need to journalize. The accounting policies on page 1 will require you to post additional entries (it helps to keep a tickler file).

Adjusting Journal Entry Information:
The beginning balance in Prepaid Rent was for the factory as of December 31, 2015 the balance had two months remaining.

Prior Period Prepaid Insurance was for an annual policy that expires at the end of January.

The Note was borrowed on December 31, 2015 and holds interest of 3%. Interest is accrued and not paid at the end of the month. The first principle payment is due in the month of June.

GCI wrote off $5,000 of bad debt at the end of the month, and used the aging of receivables method to estimate the allowance for doubtful accounts to be $10,000

All depreciation is straight-line with no residual value.
Office equipment is expected to last 5 years
Factory Equipment is expected to last 4 years
Mixing barrels are expected to last 10 years.

Assume the income tax rate for GCI is 15%.
