Since 1970, Super Rise, Inc., has provided maintenance services for elevators. On January 1, 2016, Super
Rise obtains a contract to maintain an elevator in a 90-story building in New York City for 10 months and
receives a fixed payment of $94,000. The contract specifies that Super Rise will receive an additional
$47,000 at the end of the 10 months if there is no unexpected delay, stoppage, or accident during the year.
Super Rise estimates variable consideration to be the most likely amount it will receive.
Assume that, because the building sees a constant flux of people throughout the day, Super Rise is allowed
to access the elevators and related mechanical equipment only between 3am and 5am on any given day,
which is insufficient to perform some of the more time-consuming repair work. As a result, Super Rise
believes that unexpected delays are likely and that it will not earn the bonus. Prepare the journal entry
Super Rise would record on January 1. (If no entry is required for a particular transaction/event, select "No
