    Preparing balance sheet and income statement
    BACKGROUND - Ima Founder starts her own business, NEWCO, on January 1, 2014 and sets up a corporation with 10,000 shares of common stock, with a par value of $0.001 per share. She invests $1,000 in NEWCO in exchange for the 10,000 shares of common stock. She subsequently raises $150,000 in convertible notes, which she closes on March 1, 2014. The notes accrue simple interest at 12% per year. The maturity date of the notes is March 1, 2017, at which time all principal and accrued interest are payable to the noteholders, unless the notes are converted earlier in accordance with the note terms. From April 1 through December 31, 2014, Ima spends $72,000 in payroll costs to develop her first product, a web application used to book doctor appointments online. All costs to develop the application are expensed as incurred. On March 1, 2014, Ima enters into a lease agreement to rent office space for NEWCO. The terms of the lease include an upfront payment of a $3,000 security deposit to guarantee timely rent payment and provide for repairing any damages to the office that are not considered “normal wear and tear”, but which is refundable upon completion of the lease term. Rent is $3,000 per month, which includes ALL costs, including use of the office space, phones, use of common facilities and all Internet connectivity. Rent is payable in arrears (that is, payable on the first day of each month following a month during which the office space is occupied). On September 1, 2014, she engages the services of a UX/UI consultant to provide a professional user experience in using the web application. The consultant is paid $5,000 monthly, payable on the first day of the month following the month the work is performed. On December 1, 2014, she sells 4 annual contracts of her web application to doctor offices at a price of $60,000 per contract per year. The doctor offices have immediate use of the web application and are given 30 day payment terms. (Note: for purposes of this exercise, assume the cost of the mobile applications is negligible).

    First thing you have to do is journalize the transactions, then post them to your accounts. Next you have to get the account balances and do a trial balance. After that you have to do your adjusting entries, then do an adjusted trial balance, from which you can do your balance sheet and your income statement.
