 You’ve just secured a new client in your accounting practice, the Rawls Repair Corporation (RRC), a brand new small business specializing in bicycle repair. The owner, Rob Rawls, is a terrific cyclist and bike repair specialist, but definitely not an accountant. Your job is to help Rob put his affairs in order. Luckily Rob has only been in operation for a month and things have not gotten too out of hand yet! Rob has to submit his financial statements to his investors and doesn’t know where to begin. It’s your job to go through the complete Accounting cycle to prepare the financial statements for the RRC.


 Use the embedded assistance in the template, guidance in your textbook, and examples in the weekly lectures to complete this project.  Should you have any questions contact your professor.
