Dave and Reba save all their married life to open a bed and breakfast (B&B) named Tres Amigos. Dave invested $ 100,000 of their own money and the company gave capital to Dave. The business then got a $ 100,000 bank loan for the $ 200,000 needed to get started. The company bought a run-down old Spanish colonial home in Tucson for $ 80,000. It cost another $ 50,000 to renovate. Dave and Reba found most of the furniture at antique shops and flea markets- total cost was $ 20,000. Kitchen equipment cost $ 10,000 and Dell computer set cost $ 2,000.




Prior to the grand opening, the banker requests a report on the business activities thus far. Tres Amigo’s bank statement shows cash balance of $ 38,000. Dave and Reba feel pretty good with that much net income in only six months. To better understand how well they doing, they prepare the following income statement for presentation to the bank.
