Alternate problem E Bill Baxter prepared a trial balance for Special Party Rentals, Inc., a company that rents tables, chairs, and other party supplies. The trial balance did not balance. The trial balance he prepared was as follows:

 SPECIAL PARTY RENTALS, INC. Trial Balance 2010 December 31 Acct. No. Account Title Debits Credits 100 Cash $74,000 103 Accounts Receivable 50,800 170 Equipment 160,000 200 Accounts Payable$ 34,000 300 Capital Stock 130,000 310 Retained Earnings 44,000 320 Dividends 16,000 400 Service Revenue 432,000 505 Advertising Expense 1,200 507 Salaries Expense 176,000 511 Utilities Expense 44,800 515 Rent Expense 64,000 $586,800$ 640,000

In trying to f ind out why the trial balance did not balance, Baxter discovered the following errors:

Equipment was understated (too low) by USD 12,000 because of an error in addition in determining the balance of that account in the ledger.

A credit of USD 4,800 to Accounts Receivable in the journal was not posted to the ledger account at all.

A debit of USD 16,000 for a semiannual dividend was posted as a credit to the Capital Stock account.

The balance of USD 12,000 in the Advertising Expense account was entered as USD 1,200 in the trial balance.

Miscellaneous Expense (Account No. 568), with a balance of USD 3,200, was omitted from the trial balance.

Prepare a corrected trial balance as of 2010 December 31. Also, write a description of the effect(s) of each error.
