THE UNIVERSITY OF NEVADA LAS VEGAS
HARRAH COLLEGE OF HOTEL ADMINISTRATION
Project Part 2
This project is
the second part of a three-part project that assesses your knowledge of
financial accounting and the accounting cycle. In the first part, you were
required to prepare journal entries, T-accounts and a trial balance for a
variety of transactions for a new hospitality company. In part 2 of the project,
you are asked to analyze adjusting entries and to prepare journals, T-accounts
and an adjusted trial balance. In the third part of the project (posted after
part 2 is complete) you will need to prepare closing journal entries and
T-accounts in addition to an income statement and balance sheet. This part of the project is based on the
first part so you must adjust your first part for any mistakes.
The project will
be due on Monday, November 3rd, 2014, at the beginning of class.
Projects received after this date will
be penalized 10 points (out of 100) each 24-hour period they are late
(beginning at the start of class). You
can earn 10% points extra credit by turning a completed project in at the
beginning of class on Monday, October 27, 2014.
No projects will be accepted for extra credit after the start of class
on Monday, November 3rd, 2014, including even one minute late. Also, any projects not completed are not
eligible for extra credit including not having all page or parts attached.

work yourself. Also as the owner, it is
your responsibility that all transactions are recorded properly and that the financial

analysis must be completed using Excel. Handwritten journals, T-accounts, or
trial balance will not be accepted nor will any other file format. When using Excel formulas must be used when
possible and numbers should not be hardcoded.
For instance, do not just solve the amount of the adjusting entries using
your calculator and just type in the answer.
In Excel you must have a formula
for any calculations. The only hardcoded
numbers are the ones that have no calculation involved. There should be only formulas
on the T-accounts and trial balance.
pages must be printed âportrait styleâ (i.e. longer down than across). The trial balance must be on one page. The journals and T-accounts can be on
multiple pages but they must not wrap pages across, only down.
In addition to the journals, T-accounts, and trial
balance, you must print out the formulas you used for the trial balance.
The instructions are shown below. The formula
printouts are to be handed in. They do
not have to all fit onto one page. Not
doing this is Excel, not using the Excel formulas, or not submitting the
formula sheet will result in a 10% point penalty.

assignment, you must use the last four digits of your NSHE number, called your

you with your Part 1. It is your
responsibility to make sure and fix any journals or T-accounts that were wrong

so just like in the real world the previous transactions do not go away. You start from where that part ended and add

be booked as of June 30, 20XX:
1. The money borrowed on June 2 is an
interest-only loan with a 10 percent interest rate. The interest accrues each month even though
it is only paid quarterly with the first payment not due until September 2,
20xx. Compute interest on a monthly
basis not by number of days.
2. The building has no salvage value and is
depreciated on a straight-line basis over 30 years. The equipment has no salvage value and is
depreciated on a straight-line basis over 10 years.
