Chapter 8 – Government-wide Statements


8-C. Assemble the following from previous continuous problems: (1) the governmental funds Balance Sheet and Statement of Revenues, Expenditures, and Changes in Fund Balances from Section 5-C; (3) the proprietary funds Statement of Net position and  Statement of Revenues, Expenses, and Changes in Fund Net position from Section 6-C.



  1. Start a worksheet for adjustments, using the trial balance format illustrated in the text (i.e. list accounts with debit balances first, then accounts with credit balances).  Enter the balances from the governmental funds financial statements prepared for Section 5-C.  When doing this, follow the following guidelines:


  • Net position:  Use a single account for net position (which will include the beginning balance of all fund balance accounts).


  • Intergovernmental Revenues:  When setting up the worksheet, set up separate lines for the intergovernmental revenues as follows:


State Grant for Highway and Street Maintenance$ 1,067,500
Operational Grant—General Government 332,000
Capital Grant—Public Safety1,335,000
  • Capital Assets:  It is not necessary to set up separate lines for different classes of capital (fixed) assets or accumulated depreciation (simply use one row for Capital Assets and another for Accumulated Depreciation).


  • Confirm that the total debits and credits equal.


2. Prepare worksheet entries and post to the worksheet for the following items. Identify each adjustment by the letter used in the problem:


a.  Record the January 1, 2020 balances of general fixed asset and related accumulated depreciation accounts. The City of Monroe had the following balances (excluding Internal Service Funds):




Accumulated Depreciation
Totals $ 67,900,00032,000,000



b.   Eliminate the capital expenditures shown in the governmental funds Statement of Revenues, Expenditures, and Changes in Fund Balances.

c.   Depreciation expense (governmental activities) for the year totaled $ 5,130,000.

d.   Eliminate the other financing sources from the sale of bonds by recording a liability for bonds payable and the related premium.

e.   As of January 1, 2020, the City of Monroe had $12,000,000 in general obligation bonds outstanding.

f.    Eliminate the expenditures for bond principal.

g.   Accrue interest in the amount of $328,000. (Two bond issues were outstanding; interest payments for both were last made on July 1, 2020. The computation is as follows: ($11,200,000 × .03 × 6/12) + ($4,000,000 ×. 08 × 6/12) = $328,000).

h.   Adjust for the interest accrued in the prior year government-wide statements, but recorded as an expenditure in the 2020 fund basis statements, ($12,000,000 × .03 × 6/12) = $180,000.

i.   Amortize bond premium in the amount of $ 10,000.

j.   Make adjustments for additional revenue accrual. The only adjustment is for property taxes to eliminate the current year deferral of property taxes.

k.   Adjust for the $21,000 of property taxes that was deferred in 2019 and recognized as revenue in the 2020 fund-basis statements.

l.   Assume the City adopted a policy in 2020 of allowing employees to accumulate compensated absences.  Make an adjustment accruing the expense of $ 42,000 Charge compensated absences expense.

m.   Bring in the balances of the internal service fund balance sheet accounts. Again, use a single account for all capital assets and a second account for all accumulated depreciation balances (use a separate column of the worksheet to enter Internal Service Fund entries).

n.   No revenues from internal service funds were with external parties. Assume $3,200 of the $11,200 “Due from Other Funds” in the internal service accounts represents a receivable from the General Fund and the remaining $8,000 is due from the enterprise fund. Eliminate the $3,200 interfund receivables.

o.   Reduce governmental fund expenses by the net operating profit of internal service funds. As the amount is small, reduce general government expenses for the entire amount.

p.   Eliminate transfers that are between departments reported within governmental activities.


3. Prepare, in good form, a Statement of Activities for the City of Monroe for the Year Ended December 31, 2020. For purposes of this statement, assume:

  • $ 332,000 in the General Fund is a state grant specifically to support general government programs.
  • $ 1,067,500 in the Street and Highway Fund is an operating grant specifically for highway and street maintenance expenses.
  • $ 1,335,000 in the City Jail Construction Fund is a capital grant that applies to public safety.


Use the balances computed from the worksheet completed in part 2 for the governmental activities portion of the statement.  Use the solution to P6-C (Enterprise fund) to prepare the business activities portion (net any short-term interfund payables/receivables).


4. Prepare, in good form, a Statement of Net position for the City of Monroe as of December 31, 2020. Group all capital assets, net of depreciation. Include a breakdown in the Net position section for (a) capital assets, net of related debt, (b) restricted, and (c) unrestricted. For purposes of classifying net position for the governmental activities, assume:

  • For the governmental activities net position invested in capital assets, net of related debt, the related debt includes the bonds payable, the premium on bonds payable, and the advance from the water utility fund.
  • The special revenue fund resources are restricted by the granting agency for street and highway maintenance.  Assume $204,500 are the only restricted resources in the governmental activities.


5. Prepare the reconciliation necessary to convert from the fund balance reported in the governmental funds Balance Sheet to the net position in the government-wide Statement of Net position.


6. Prepare the reconciliation necessary to convert from the change in fund balances in the governmental funds Statement of Revenues, Expenditures, and Changes in Fund Balances to the change in net position in the government-wide Statement of Activities.
