Statement of the Problem

Case 3-1
Maynard Company (B)
Diane Maynard was grateful for the balance sheets that her friend prepared. In going over the numbers, she remarked, “It’s sort of surprising that cash increased by \$31,667, but net income was only \$19,635. Why was that?” Her friend replied, “A partial answer to that questionis to look at an income statement for June. I think I can find the data I need to prepare on for you.” In addition to the data given in the (A) case, her friend found a record of cash receipts and disbursements, which is summarized in Exhibit 1. She also learned that all accounts payable were to vendors for purchase of merchandise inventory and that cost of sales was \$39,345 in June.

Questions:
1. Prepare an income statement for June in proper format. Explain the derivation of each item on this statement, including cost of sales.
