The company uses its own parts inventory but pays an independent contractor to perform the repairs. The sales have already been recorded and the labor costs incurred were recorded as a debit to “Warranty Expense” for $150 and a credit to “Cash” for $150. Nothing else has been recorded with respect to these warranties. (This bookkeeper really does need some training!)
