Scenario: An inexperienced accountant prepared this condensed income statement for Simon Company, a retail firm that has been in business for a number of years.

As an experienced, knowledgeable accountant, you review the statement and determine the following facts:

  2. Other revenues consist of sales discounts $18,000 and rent revenue $4,000.
  3. Selling expenses consist of salespersons’ salaries $80,000, depreciation on equipment $10,000, advertising $13,000, and sales commissions $6,000.  The commissions represent commissions paid.
