Topic 1: Abe Technologies provides maintenance service for computers and office equipment for companies throughout the Northeast. The sales manager is elated because she closed a $300,000, 3-year maintenance contract on December 29, 2016, two days before the company’s year-end. â€œNow we will hit this year’s net income target for sure,â€ she crowed. The customer is required to pay $100,000 on December 29 (the day the deal was closed). Two more payments of $100,000 each are also required on December 29, 2017 and 2018. Discuss the effect that this event will have on the company’s financial statements.
