Our company uses the percentage of sales method to estimate bad debt expense for the year. Our allowance for bad debts account has a debit balance of $1,000 prior to the adjusting entry for bad debt expense. We have estimated that 2% of net credit sales will be uncollectible for the current year. Net credit sales for the year totaled $200,000. What will be the balance in allowance for bad debts after the adjusting entry is recorded?
