ACC100 Bookkeeping for Business Assessment 1 Preparation of Financial Statements Case Study Question

You have decided that a company is the best business structure for you and on 15 May Sunshine Electronics Pty Ltd was incorporated as a private company with you as the sole director/shareholder. The company now has a tax file number and an Australian Business Number (Australian students) and you have chosen not to register the company for GST at present.

You have signed a lease on a shop for 2 years with an option to renew for a further 3 years. You have opened a bank account in the company’s name with the ANZ Bank, and at the same time applied for a loan of $50,000 from the bank to enable you to set up the shop and provide you with working capital. You contracted a shopfitter to fit out the shop, which opened for business on 24 May.

These are the transactions for the month.

May   15    You deposited $10,000 to open the business bank account. This was your investment in the company in exchange for 10,000 ordinary shares.
