Additional adjusting data:
1. A physical count of supplies on hand on December 31, 2014, totalled $2,100. Through an oversight, the Salaries and Wages Payable account was not changed during 2014. Unpaid salaries and wages on December 31, 2014, amounted to $5,100.
2. The Interest Receivable account was also left unchanged during 2014. Interest earned but not received on investments amounted to $4,750 on December 31, 2014.
3. The unexpired portions of the insurance policies totalled $65,000 as at December 31, 2014.
4. A cheque for $44,000 was received on January 1, 2014, for the rent of a building for both 2014 and 2015. The entire amount was credited to rental income.
5. Depreciation for the year was recorded in error as $5,350 rather than the correct figure of $53,500.
6. A further review of prior years' depreciation calculations revealed that depreciation of $13,500 had not been recorded. It was decided that this oversight should be corrected by adjusting prior years' income.
