2. Complete the aging of receivables schedule by adding the omitted accounts to the
bottom of the schedule and updating the totals.
3. Estimate the allowance for doubtful accounts, based on the aging of receivables schedule.
4. Assume that the allowance for doubtful accounts for Angler’s Dream Company has
a debit balance of $1,405 before adjustment on December 31, 2011. Journalize the
adjusting entry for uncollectible accounts.
5. Assume that the adjusting entry in (4) was inadvertently omitted, how would the omission
affect the balance sheet and income statement?
