It is mid-April, 2017 and you have recently started to work in the Accounting Department of Gavine Corp. (GC), a Canadian company with shares traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange. GC has a December 31 fiscal year end. You are working with a team of employees responsible for preparing the financial statements for the company’s first quarter ended March 31, 2017.
The Sales Manager and Chief Accountant meet with you and report that GC adopted a new sales policy effective January 1, 2017 that may affect a few large customers. The policy provides that customers that purchase 10,000 Kg. or more of a particular raw material during the 2017 calendar year are entitled to an $8/Kg. rebate for each kilogram purchased in the year, payable in January, 2018. One company that purchased a total of 10,200 Kg. in 2016 purchased 2,800 Kg. in the first quarter of 2017, and the customer expects it will be acquiring another 9,000 Kg. during the rest of the year.
The Sales Manager and Chief Accountant have asked you to prepare a report, including your recommendation on what effect, if any, this policy will have on the first quarter’s financial statements.
