Gross Profit Net Sales (Cost of Goods Sold) Gross Profit Amount of each net sales dollar – Available to cover operating costs – Provide for net income

Gross Profit Margin Net Sales (Cost of Goods Sold) Gross Profit The relationship of Gross Profit to Net Sales – Decimal – Percentage

Gross Profit Margin Net Sales Less: Cost of Goods Sold Gross Profit 100% \$200,000 125,000 \$ 75,000 37.5% 75,000/200,000 =.375.375 X 100 = 37.5 %

Sales Tax Sales Tax Rate: 8.25% Gross Taxable Sales: \$96,000 What is the total amount due from customers? Sales Tax Rate: 8.25% Gross Taxable Sales: \$96,000 What is the total amount due from customers?

Sales Tax 8.25 % =.0825 96,000 X 8.25 % = 7,920 96,000 X.0825 = 7,920 OR \$96,000 + \$7,920 = \$103,920

One Step Computation 96,000 X 108.25 % = 103,920 96,000 X 1.0825 = 103,920 OR

What If Sales Tax Rate: 8.25% Amount Collected: \$103,920 What is the total amount of taxable sales? Sales Tax Rate: 8.25% Amount Collected: \$103,920 What is the total amount of taxable sales?

What If Taxable Sales Amount Collected 1 +Sales Tax Rate ? X 1.0825 = 103,920 1.0825 1.0825 Taxable Sales = 96,000

Employer Payroll Tax Taxes are withheld from employees wages Employers also have to pay taxes One common employer payroll tax FUTA –.8% of the first \$7,000 You will cover additional taxes later.

Federal Unemployment Tax (FUTA) Jones Inc - First Quarter 2008 Total payroll: \$15,400 FUTA:.8% of the first \$7,000 of wages Jones Inc - First Quarter 2008 Total payroll: \$15,400 FUTA:.8% of the first \$7,000 of wages Compute the FUTA liability

Federal Unemployment Tax (FUTA).8% is less than 1 % To convert.8% to a decimal: Move the decimal two places to the left.8%.008

Federal Unemployment Tax (FUTA) 7,000 X.008 = 56 1% is.01 7,000 X.01 = 70 Thus we know the answer must be less than 70. 70 X 80% = 56

Purchase Price Allocation A corporation purchases land and building for \$850,000. Tax Appraisal – Land \$ 270,000 Building \$ 650,000 A corporation purchases land and building for \$850,000. Tax Appraisal – Land \$ 270,000 Building \$ 650,000 Determine the amounts to be allocated to the land and building

Purchase Price Allocation ItemAppraised Value % (rounded to 1 decimal place) Land Building Total \$ 270,000 \$ 650,000 100 % 70.7 % 29.3 % \$920,000 270/920 X 100 = 29.3478260869565 650/920 X 100 = 70.6521739130435

Allocation of Purchase Price ItemAllocated Amount Land Building Total 850,000 X.293 850,000 X.707 249,050 + 600,950 \$ 249,050 600,950 \$ 850,000
