Because Aqua Elite, Inc. is a new startup business, the
beginning balances in all the general ledger accounts are
zero to start.
The length of the accounting periods are three months
using a fiscal calendar year. (A fiscal calendar is on a
yearly basis other than a calendar year—January 1st to
December 31st. For example, a fiscal calendar year can
be May 1, 2009, through April 30, 2010). Therefore,
posting to the general ledger, adjustments and closing
entries are made on a fiscal quarterly basis.
Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable subsidiary
ledgers aren’t being used. Any references to invoicing,
receipts, or payments “on account” assume changes to
the running balance in the Accounts Receivable and
Accounts Payable general ledger accounts.
Payroll calculations aren’t necessary. Assume the salary
is the gross pay with no deductions taken. Therefore, the
net pay is the same as the gross pay, requiring a simplified
journal entry to record the expense.
Use the information in the Chart of Accounts that’s provided
after the Requirements section below.
1. Journalize the transactions. Omit explanations.
2. Post the transactions to the general ledger, creating new
ledger accounts as necessary. Calculate the new general
ledger account balances.
3. Prepare the unadjusted trial balance for Aqua Elite, Inc.,

a. Record the expired rent.
b. Supplies on hand, $350.
c. Depreciation: $400 equipment, $210 furniture, $650
d. Services performed but unbilled, $1,900.
e. Accrued salaries, $675.
f. Unearned service revenue earned as of July 31, $800.
5. Prepare an adjusted trial balance for Aqua Elite, Inc., at
the end of July.
6. Prepare the Income Statement, Statement of Retained
Earnings, and Balance Sheet for the three-month period
May through July 20XX.
7. Prepare, journalize, and post closing entries.

Hello Linda, thanks so much for replying so quickly. I assume you've had this completed already. I'd like to make sure it is most up to date to my specific lesson. The last project you sent me got me only a 75%. Because it was a final assignment, I did not receive the wrong answers only the score. Can you guarantee me a better score with this current assignment?

Yes I have done this assignment in past and always got good grade. Even the past assignment I posted I always got excellent feedback from customers A grade (95%+) not sure why you got 75%. I can review this assignment again.

If this assginment needs to posted in a specific format please post that so that I can assure you good grades.

The grading criteria for the project is as follows:


formatting of the four financial statements is worth

4 points each for a total of

16 points (4 × 4 = 16).

Calculations on the financial statements are based on

28 figures

from your general ledger account. Each of those

figures that came from the general ledger account is worth

3 points for a total of

84 points (28 × 3 = 84).

Thus, the

formatting of the financial statements (worth 16

points total) plus the

figures used for the financial statements

(worth 84 points total) provide the 100 points for the project.


+ 16 points

Figures + 84 points

Total Points 100

OK. I will look into it.
Will you be uploading the PDF version in which I have to provide the solution.
