Gooch Company paid \$500 for local advertising, which is reimbursable from Jansen. By year-end, 60% of the merchandise had been sold for \$21,500. Gooch notified Jansen, retained a 10% commission, and remitted the cash due to Jansen.

1. Compute the inventory value of the units unsold in the hands of the cosignee (Gooch).

2. Compute the profit for the cosignor (Jansen) for the units sold.

3. Provide Journal entries for cosignor (Jansen) and cosignee (Gooch), respectively, to record the notification of sales and remittance of amount due to cosignor.

2) Profit For the consignor for units sold=Value of Goods sold by consignee- Commission and other expenses of Consignee

Value of Goods sold =\$21500

Commission=2150(21500*10%)
