Santana Rey created Business Solutions on October 1, 2017. The company has been successful, and Santana plans to expand her business. She believes that an additional $86,000 is needed and is investigating three funding sources. a. Santana’s sister Cicely is willing to invest$86,000 in the business as a common shareholder. Since Santana currently has about $129,000 invested in the business, Cicely’s investment will mean that Santana will maintain about 60% ownership and Cicely will have 40% ownership of Business Solutions. b. Santana’s uncle Marcello is willing to invest$86,000 in the business as a preferred shareholder. Marcello would purchase 860 shares of $100 par value, 7% preferred stock. c. Santana’s banker is willing to lend her$86,000 on a 7%, 10-year note payable. She would make monthly payments of $1,000 per month for 10 years. 1. Prepare the journal entry to reflect the initial$86,000 investment under each of the options (a), (b), and (c). 2. Evaluate the three proposals for expansion, providing the pros and cons of each option. 3. Which option do you recommend Santana adopt? Explain.

Chavez Company most recently reconciled its bank statement and book balances of cash on August 31 and it reported two checks outstanding, No. 5888 for $1,028.05 and No. 5893 for$494.25. The following information is available for its September 30, 2017, reconciliation.
Check No. 5904 is correctly drawn for $2,090 to pay for computer equipment; however, the recordkeeper misread the amount and entered it in the accounting records with a debit to Computer Equipment and a credit to Cash of$2,060. The NSF check shown in the statement was originally received from a customer, S. Nilson, in payment of her account. Its return has not yet been recorded by the company. The credit memorandum (CM) is from the collection of a $1,500 note for Chavez Company by the bank. The bank deducted a$15 collection expense. The collection and fee are not yet recorded. 1. Prepare the September 30, 2017, bank reconciliation for this company. 2. Prepare the journal entries (in dollars and cents) to adjust the book balance of cash to the reconciled balance. 3. The bank statement reveals that some of the prenumbered checks in the sequence are missing. Describe three situations that could explain this.
The following information is available to reconcile Branch Company’s book balance of cash with its bank statement cash balance as of July 31, 2017. a. On July 31, the company’s Cash account has a $27,497 debit balance, but its July bank statement shows a$27,233 cash balance. b. Check No. 3031 for $1,482 and Check No. 3040 for$558 were outstanding on the June 30 bank reconciliation. Check No. 3040 is listed with the July canceled checks, but Check No. 3031 is not. Also, Check No. 3065 for $382 and Check No. 3069 for$2,281, both written in July, are not among the canceled checks on the July 31 statement. c. In comparing the canceled checks on the bank statement with the entries in the accounting records, it is found that Check No. 3056 for July rent expense was correctly written and drawn for $1,270 but was erroneously entered in the accounting records as$1,250. d. The July bank statement shows the bank collected $8,000 cash on a noninterest-bearing note for Branch, deducted a$45 collection expense, and credited the remainder to its account. Branch had not recorded this event before receiving the statement. e. The bank statement shows an $805 charge for a$795 NSF check plus a $10 NSF charge. The check had been received from a customer, Evan Shaw. Branch has not yet recorded this check as NSF. f. The July statement shows a$25 bank service charge. It has not yet been recorded in miscellaneous expenses because no previous notification had been received. g.
