Allied Merchandisers was organized on May 1. Macy Co. is a major customer (buyer) of Allied (seller) products.

Allied made its first and only purchase of inventory for the period on May 3 for 3,000 units at a price of $7 cash per unit (for a total cost of $21,000).

Allied sold 1,500 of the units in inventory for $11 per unit (invoice total: $16,500) to Macy Co. under credit terms 2/10, n/60. The goods cost Allied $10,500.

Macy returns 150 units because they did not fit the customer’s needs (invoice amount: $1,650). Allied restores the units, which cost $1,050, to its inventory.

Macy discovers that 150 units are scuffed but are still of use and, therefore, keeps the units. Allied sends Macy a credit memorandum for $450 toward the original invoice amount to compensate for the damage.

Allied receives payment from Macy for the amount owed on the May 5 purchase; payment is net of returns, allowances, and any cash discount.

Prepare the appropriate journal entries for Macy Co. to record each of the May transactions. Macy is a retailer that uses the gross method and a perpetual inventory system, and purchases these units for resale. (If no entry is required for a transaction/event, select "No journal entry required" in the first account field.)

Prepare journal entries to record the following transactions for Allied assuming it uses a perpetual inventory system and the gross method. (Allied estimates returns using an adjusting entry at each year-end.)

Sydney returns $1,400 of the $29,500 of goods to Troy, who receives them the same day and restores them to its inventory. The returned goods had cost Troy $938.

Sydney pays Troy for the amount owed. Troy receives the cash immediately.

(Both Sydney and Troy use a perpetual inventory system and the gross method.)
