3) Jones and Son, a small minibus operator, have asked you to complete some work for them in relation to the income they receive from a local care home. The home uses the services of Jones and Son to transport their patients to and from hospital. This service has been running for 3 years. Rather than charge ‘per trip’, Jones and Son set a monthly fee of £2,400 for this service (ignore VAT) which is due to be paid quarterly in advance on the following dates:

1st February
1st May
1st August
1st November

Jones and Son have a financial year end of 30th September.

The care home failed to make the payment on 1st August as there had been a fire and it was agreed that this charge would be added to the November payment.

Write up the T-account below to show the receipts for the year and clearly state the figure to be included in the income...
