Acccounts Payable 7,500
Accounts Receivable 10,000
Building 4,000
Cash 2,500

Furniture and Fixtures 1,500

Create a Balance Sheet and Income Statement.
Determine the Retained earnings as of 12/31/03.
Retained Earnings for the prior period was \$1,000, determine if divedends were paid and if so, for how much?

A couple questions for clarification:
*Inventory: Is this the cost for a physical inventory being performed, or is this the total dollar amount of in-stock inventory?
*Common Stock: For dividends paid out to employees, or common stock earnings?

Basically what you need to do is assign each item to one of two catagories: Money In and Money Out.
Add each category. Subtract Money Out from Money In to determine the total Profit or Loss for the period.
Also, what is the formula for determining the dividends paid out?

Plug in your numbers to get the balance sheet total.
To find change in retained earnings: Net income minus dividends paid
Then add answer to the prior's years retained earnings to get retained earnings.
To find dividends paid: Net Income - Change in Retained earnings
