Purchases—goods placed in stock July 1–15 90,000

Sales—goods delivered to customers (gross) 116,000

Sales returns—goods returned to stock 4,000

Your client reports that the goods on hand on July 16 cost $30,500, but you determine that this figure includes goods of $6,000 received on a consignment basis. Your past records show that sales are made at approximately 25% over cost. Garnett’s insurance covers only goods owned. Compute the claim against the insurance company.
