Assume that the City of Coyote has already produced its financial statements for December 31, 2010, and the year then ended. The cityâ€™s General Fund was only for education and parks. Its Capital Projects Funds worked with each of these functions at times. The city also had established an Enterprise Fund to account for its art museum. The government-wide financial statements indicated the following figures:
â€¢ Education reported net expenses of $600,000.
â€¢ Parks reported net expenses of $100,000.
â€¢ Art museum reported net revenues of $50,000.
â€¢ General government revenues for the year were $800,000 with an overall increase in the cityâ€™s net assets of $150,000. The fund-based financial statements indicated the following for the entire year:
â€¢ The General Fund reported a $30,000 increase in its fund balance.
â€¢ The Capital Projects Fund reported a $40,000 increase in its fund balance.
â€¢ The Enterprise Fund reported a $60,000 increase in its net assets.
The CPA firm of Abernethy and Chapman has been asked to review several transactions that occurred during 2010 and indicate how to correct any erroneous reporting and the impact of each error. View each situation as independent.
An art display set up for the community was recorded within the General Fund and generated revenues of $9,000 but had expenditures of $45,000 ($15,000 in expenses and $30,000 to buy land for the display). The CPA firm has determined that this program should have been recorded as an Enterprise Fund activity because it was offered in association with the art museum. a. What was the correct change in the General Fundâ€™s balance for 2010? b. What was the correct overall change in the cityâ€™s net assets on the government-wide financial statements? c. What was the correct change in the net assets of the Enterprise Fund on the fund-based financial statements?
