ITEM 1. BUSINESS
Ample-Tee was incorporated on January 5, 2011 under the laws of the State of Nevada. Mr. Lawrence Chenard has served as President, Chief Executive Officer of our company from January 5, 2011 to October 20, 2015.
On October 20, 2015, J. Edward Daniels acquired from Lawrence Chenard 84,100,000 shares of our $.001 par value common stock. The consideration provided by Mr. Daniels to Mr. Chenard is $250,000 cash. The acquisition by Mr. Daniels of those shares resulted in a change in control.
We are a development stage company that intends to focus on selling hard-to find ergonomic products for the physically disabled, such as chairs, workstations, back/arm/leg/wrist supports, through our proposed online website. Ample-Tee intends to be a specialty on-line ergonomic product retailer, with our aim to provide quality products to satisfy our customers desire to work and play in a healthy environment that keeps them injury and pain-free.
Ample-Tee intends to focus on selling niche products that solve ergonomic health problems for the physically disabled. The physically disabled are becoming an increasing presence in the workplace and in recreational activities. By using traditional marketing and sales techniques Ample-Tee will establish a solid base in home, small and larger business communities. Ample-Tee will take advantage of manufacturers that include drop-shipping; Ample-Tee will have a website that has both an online store and an education section to teach people about ergonomic problems for the physically disabled.
The keys to success will be the Company’s ability to provide specialty products that cannot be found at “large box” retailers such as Staples, Office Max, Costco, Office Depot, Ikea and others. We want niche products that cannot be found at these stores, because we cannot compete with them on price. Additionally, we will provide excellent customer service and build an easy-to-use website that educates our customers and potential customers while selling our products effectively.
Mr. Chenard has invested $7,500 in the Company. On December 9, 2013 the Company approved a 168.2:1 forward split, which has been retroactively stated throughout. On October 20, 2015, the Company’s total issued and outstanding shares of common stock were 114,970,796. Accordingly, Mr. Daniels, as the sole holder of 84,100,000 shares of the Company’s $.001 par value common stock, holds voting power equal to approximately 74% of the Company’s voting securities.
The Company has not been involved in any bankruptcy, receivership or similar proceedings since its incorporation nor has it been involved in any reclassification, merger or consolidation. We have no plans to change our business activities.
We have not earned any revenues to date. Our independent registered public accountant has issued an audit opinion which includes a statement expressing substantial doubt as to our ability to continue as a going concern.
There is the likelihood that we may never be able to source the niche ergonomic products that the Company would need to successfully complete its plan of operation and develop and implement the Company’s retail and educational web-site. If our company is not capable of building a market for its proposed products, all funds that we spend on development will be lost.
Plan of Operation
During the next 12 months, Ample-Tee, Inc. intends on sourcing the products and setting up its website and begin to market and sell the Ample-Tee product ergonomic product line to home, small and large businesses and government agencies. We have not yet commenced any sales or marketing activities.
Our registration statement was effective on March 13, 2013. We have not yet raised enough capital to implement our Plan of Operation. Over the 12 month period after we are able to raise enough funds, our Company intends to introduce its planned products and start sales. We intend to market our services on the Internet. We have three planned phases to our operations over twelve months.
The first phase of our planned operations will be to source out potential suppliers and to establish a line of products. We will secure the services of contractors to develop our logo and develop our website. Estimated cost of logo design and development of the website is $22,500. The website will be operational within this time period. The Company anticipates the first phase of our planned operations to be completed within 90 days of this offering.
The second phase of our planned operations, we intend to engage a Search Engine Optimization firm that will assist us, not only identifying to successfully market our product over the internet but to ensure a high presence and to achieve a high search engine ranking. This firm will also assist in placing pay-per-click advertising. Estimated annual cost for these services is $75,000. We expect to have the second phase completed within 180 days of this offering.
The third phase of our planned operations will be to launch our website and begin our sales and marketing campaign. Estimated cost for sales and marketing campaign is $32,000. We expect to have the third phase completed with 280 days of this offering. With anticipate generating revenues within twelve months of this offering. Total estimate expenditures for the next twelve months will be $150,000 including expenses of issuance and distribution of $20,500.
The Company has raised $5,350 in cash to initiate its business plan through the sale of its common stock. The amount raised from our stock offering was insufficient and we will need additional cash to continue to implement our business plan. If we are unable to raise it, we will either suspend marketing operations until we do raise the cash, or cease operations entirely. At this time, we are searching for funds to implement out Plan of Operations.
If we are unable to complete any aspect of our development or marketing efforts because we don’t have enough money, we will cease our development and/or marketing operations until we raise money. Attempting to raise capital after failing in any phase of our business plan would be difficult. As such, if we cannot secure additional proceeds we will have to cease operations and investors would lose their entire investment.
Management does not plan to hire additional employees at this time. Our President will be responsible for the initial product sourcing. We intend to hire sales representatives initially on a commission only basis to keep administrative overhead to a minimum. We will use third party web designers to build and maintain our website.
We do not expect to be purchasing or selling plant or significant equipment during the next twelve months.

ITEM 6. SELECTED FINANCIAL DATA
ITEM 7. MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
The following discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with our financial statements and related notes included elsewhere in this report.
This annual report contains forward looking statements relating to our Company's future economic performance, plans and objectives of management for future operations, projections of revenue mix and other financial items that are based on the beliefs of, as well as assumptions made by and information currently known to, our management. The words "expects”, “intends”, “believes”, “anticipates”, “may”, “could”, “should" and similar expressions and variations thereof are intended to identify forward-looking statements. The cautionary statements set forth in this section are intended to emphasize that actual results may differ materially from those contained in any forward looking statement.
Our auditor’s report on our August 31, 2015 financial statements expresses an opinion that substantial doubt exists as to whether we can continue as an ongoing business. Since our officer and director may be unwilling or unable to loan or advance us additional capital, we believe that if we do not raise additional capital over the next 12 months, we may be required to suspend or cease the implementation of our business plans. See “August 31, 2015 Audited Financial Statements – Report of Independent Registered Accounting Firm.”
As of August 31, 2015, Ample-Tee had $77 cash on hand and in the bank. Management believes this amount will not satisfy our cash requirements for the next twelve months or until such time that additional proceeds are raised. We plan to satisfy our future cash requirements - primarily the working capital required for the development of our course guides and marketing campaign and to offset legal and accounting fees - by additional equity financing. This will likely be in the form of private placements of common stock.
Management believes that if subsequent private placements are successful, we will be able to generate sales revenue within the following twelve months thereof. However, additional equity financing may not be available to us on acceptable terms or at all, and thus we could fail to satisfy our future cash requirements.
If Ample-Tee is unsuccessful in raising the additional proceeds through a private placement offering it will then have to seek additional funds through debt financing, which would be highly difficult for a new development stage company to secure. Therefore, the Company is highly dependent upon the success of the anticipated private placement offering and failure thereof would result in Ample-Tee having to seek capital from other sources such as debt financing, which may not even be available to the company. However, if such financing were available, because Ample-Tee is a development stage company with no operations to date, it would likely have to pay additional costs associated with high risk loans and be subject to an above market interest rate. At such time these funds are required, management would evaluate the terms of such debt financing and determine whether the business could sustain operations and growth and manage the debt load. If Ample-Tee cannot raise additional proceeds via a private placement of its common stock or secure debt financing it would be required to cease business operations. As a result, investors in Ample-Tee common stock would lose all of their investment.
The development and marketing of our services will initiate over the next 12 months. Ample-Tee does not anticipate obtaining any further products or services.
We did not generate any revenue during the fiscal year ended August 31, 2015. As of the fiscal year ended August 31, 2015 we had $77 of cash on hand in the bank. We incurred operating expenses in the amount of $17,452 in the fiscal year ended August 31, 2015. These operating expenses were comprised of professional fees and office and general expenses.
Ample-Tee has no current plans, preliminary or otherwise, to merge with any other entity.
Off Balance Sheet Arrangements.
As of the date of this Annual Report, the current funds available to the Company will not be sufficient to continue operations. The cost to establish the Company and begin operations is estimated to be approximately $150,000 over the next twelve months. The officer and director, J. Edward Daniels has undertaken to provide the Company with operating capital to sustain our business over the next twelve month period as the expenses are incurred in the form of a non-secured loan. However, there is no contract in place or written agreement securing this agreement. Management believes that if the Company cannot raise sufficient revenues or maintain its reporting status with the SEC it will have to cease all efforts directed towards the Company. As such, any investment previously made would be lost in its entirety.
Other than the above described situation the Company does not have any off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on the Company's financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources that are material to investors.

Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm
To the Board of Directors
Carson City, Nevada
We have audited the accompanying balance sheets of Ample-Tee as of August 31, 2015 and 2014 and the related statements of operations , stockholders' deficit, and cash flows for the years then ended. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits
We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audits to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. Our audits included consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company's internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.
In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Ample-Tee as of August 31, 2015 and 2014 and the results of its operations and cash flows for the years then ended, in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles.
The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern . As discussed in Note 2 to the financial statements, the Company has limited operations and has no established source of revenue. This raises substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. Management's plan in regard to these matters is also described in Note 2. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
NOTE 1 – NATURE OF OPERATIONS AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION
The Company was incorporated in the State of Nevada as a for-profit Company on January 5, 2011 and established a fiscal year end of August 31.The Company is an ergonomic product business that focuses on selling hard-to-find ergonomic products for the physically disabled to both the local community and through an online website. All activities of the Company to date relate to its organization, initial funding and share issuances.
NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
The Company’s financial statements are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles applicable to a going concern. This contemplates the realization of assets and the liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business. Currently, the Company has does not have material assets, nor does it have operations or a source of revenue sufficient to cover its operation costs and allow it to continue as a going concern. The Company has an accumulated deficit since inception of $47,547. The Company will be dependent upon the raising of additional capital through placement of our common stock in order to implement its business plan, or merge with an operating company. There can be no assurance that the Company will be successful in either situation in order to continue as a going concern. These financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded assets or the amounts of and classification of liabilities that might be necessary in the event the company cannot continue in existence. Accordingly, these factors raise substantial doubt as to the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.
The officers and directors have committed to advancing certain operating costs of the Company, including Legal, Audit, Transfer Agency and Edgarizing costs
For the purposes of the statements of cash flows, the Company considers highly liquid financial instruments purchased with a maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalent.
Use of Estimates and Assumptions
Preparation of the financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect certain reported amounts and disclosures. Accordingly, actual results could differ from those estimates.
The Company accounts for income taxes under FASB ASC 740 “Income Taxes,” Under the asset and liability method of FASB ASC 740, deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statements carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. Under FASB ASC 740, the effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period the enactment occurs. A valuation allowance is provided for certain deferred tax assets if it is more likely than not that the Company will not realize tax assets through future operations
NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)
Fair Value of Financial Instruments
As required by the Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures Topic of the Financial Accounting Standards Board Accounting Standards Codification (“FASB ASC”), fair value is measured based on a three-tier fair value hierarchy, which prioritizes the inputs used in measuring fair value as follows: (Level 1) observable inputs such as quoted prices in active markets; (Level 2) inputs, other than the quoted prices in active markets, that are observable either directly or indirectly; and (Level 3) unobservable inputs in which there is little or no market data, which require the reporting entity to develop its own assumptions.
FASB ASC 718 “Compensation – Stock Compensation” prescribes accounting and reporting standards for all stock-based payments award to employees, including employee stock option, restricted stock, employee stock purchase plans and stock appreciation rights, may be classified as either equity or liabilities. The Company determines if a present obligation to settle the share-based payment transaction in cash or other assets exists. A present obligation to settle in cash or other assets exists if: (A) the option to settle by issuing equity instruments lacks commercial substance or (B) the present obligation is implied because of an entity’s past practice or stated policies. If a present obligation exists, the transaction should be recognized as a liability; otherwise, the transaction should be recognized as equity.
The Company has not adopted a stock option plan and has not granted any stock options. Accordingly, no stock-based compensation has been recorded.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
Recent accounting pronouncements issued by the FASB (including its Emerging Issues Task Force), the AICPA, and the SEC did not, or are not believed by management to, have a material impact on the Company’s present or future consolidated financial statements.
NOTE 3 – CAPITAL STOCK
The Company is authorized to issue an aggregate of 200,000,000 common shares with a par value of $0.001 per share. No preferred shares have been authorized or issued.
On November 23, 2011 the Company issued 1,682,000,000 Founder’s Shares at $0.001 each for cash of $7,500 and common stock subscription receivable of $2,500.
NOTE 3 – CAPITAL STOCK (continued)
On September 13, 2013, the Company received a stock subscription of 29,997,796 at $0.000018 per share for $5,350.
On December 9, 2013 the authorized common shares available to be issued has been increased to 200,000,000 shares of common stock.
On December 10, 2013 1,597,900,000 shares of common stock were redeemed for $10.
NOTE 4 – INCOME TAXES
We did not provide any current or deferred U.S. federal income tax provision or benefit for any of the periods presented because we have experienced operating losses since inception. Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes when it is more likely than not that a tax asset cannot be realized through future income the Company must allow for this future tax benefit.
We provided a full valuation allowance on the net deferred tax asset, consisting of net operating loss carry forwards, because management has determined that it is more likely than not that we will not earn income sufficient to realize the deferred tax assets during the carry forward period.
The components of the Company’s deferred tax asset and reconciliation of income taxes computed at the statutory rate to the income tax amount recorded as of August 31, 2015 is as follows:
Net operating loss carry forward
Effective Tax rate
Deferred Tax Assets
Less: Valuation Allowance
Net deferred tax asset
The reconciliation of income taxes computed at the statutory rate to the income tax recorded is as follows:
The Company did not pay any income taxes during the periods ended August 31, 2015 and 2014 and the tax returns for the years have not been filed.
The net federal operating loss carry forward will expire between 2031 and 2035. This carry forward may be limited upon the consummation of a business combination under IRC Section 381.
NOTE 5 – RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS
The Company neither owns nor leases any real or personal property. An officer provides office services without charge. Such costs are immaterial to the financial statements and accordingly, have not been reflected therein. The officers and directors for the Company are involved in other business activities and may, in the future, become involved in other business opportunities. If a specific business opportunity becomes available, such persons may face a conflict in selecting between the Company and their other business interest. The Company has not formulated a policy for the resolution of such conflicts.
As of August 31, 2015 and 2014, the Company owed officers $6,352 and $2,207 respectively.
NOTE 6 - SUBSEQUENT EVENTS
On October 20, 2015 the President, Lawrence Chenard, sold 84,100,000 common stocks to J. Edward Daniels thus causing a change in control. Mr. Daniels was appointed the new President on the same day.
The Company has evaluated subsequent events from the balance sheet date through the date the financial statements were available to be issued and has determined that there are no additional events to disclose.
ITEM 9. CHANGES AND DISAGREEMENTS WITH ACCOUNTS ON ACCOUNTING AND FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE
Our auditor is Kyle L. Tingle, operating from his office in Las Vegas, Nevada. There have not been any changes in or disagreements with our accountant on accounting, financial disclosure or any other matter.
ITEM 9A. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES
In accordance with Rule 13a-15(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 as amended (the “Exchange Act”), as of the end of the period covered by this
Annual Report on Form 10-K,
the Company’s management evaluated, with the participation of the Company’s
principal executive officer, the effectiveness of the design and operation of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) or Rule 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act).
Under the supervision and with the participation of management, the Company conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of the Company's internal control over financial reporting as of August 31, 2015, using the criteria established in
"Internal Control - Integrated Framework"
issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission ("COSO").
Disclosure controls and procedures are defined as those controls and other procedures of an issuer that are designed to ensure that the information required to be disclosed by the issuer in the reports it files or submits under the Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the Commission’s rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by an issuer in the reports that it files or submits under the Act is accumulated and communicated to the issuer's management, including its principal executive and principal financial officers, or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Based on that Evaluation he concluded that the Registrant’s disclosure controls and procedures are ineffective in gathering, analyzing and disclosing information needed to satisfy the registrant’s disclosure obligations under the Exchange Act. Based upon an evaluation of the effectiveness of disclosure controls and procedures, our Company’s principal executive and principal financial officer has concluded that as of the end of the period covered by this Annual Report on Form 10K our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) or 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act) are not effective because of the material weaknesses in our disclosure controls and procedures
which is identified below. It should be noted that the design of any system of controls is based in part upon certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions, regardless of how remote.”
The material weaknesses in our disclosure control procedures are as follows:
Lack of formal policies and procedures necessary to adequately review significant accounting transactions.
The Company utilizes a third party independent contractor for the preparation of its financial statements. Although the financial statements and footnotes are reviewed by our management, we do not have a formal policy to review significant accounting transactions and the accounting treatment of such transactions. The third party independent contractor is not involved in the day to day operations of the Company and may not be provided information from management on a timely basis to allow for adequate reporting/consideration of certain transactions.
Audit Committee and Financial Expert
. The Company does not have a formal audit committee with a financial expert, and thus the Company lacks the board oversight role within the financial reporting process.
We intend to initiate measures to remediate the identified material weaknesses including, but not necessarily limited to, the following:
Establishing a formal review process of significant accounting transactions that includes participation of the Chief Executive Officer, the Chief Financial Officer and the Company’s corporate legal counsel.
Form an Audit Committee that will establish policies and procedures that will provide the Board of Directors a formal review process that will among other things, assure that management controls and procedures are in place and being maintained consistently.
Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting for the company (as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act). Internal control over financial reporting is to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of our financial reporting for external purposes in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. Internal control over financial reporting includes maintain records that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect our transactions; providing reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary for preparation of our financial statements; providing reasonable assurance that receipts and expenditures of company assets are made in accordance with management authorization; and providing reasonable assurance that unauthorized acquisition , use or disposition of company assets that could have a material effect on our financial statements would be prevented or detected.
As of August 31, 2015, management assessed the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting based on the criteria for effective internal control over financial reporting established in SEC guidance on conducting such assessments. Based on this evaluation under the COSO Framework, our management concluded that our internal control over financial reporting are not effective as of August 31, 2015. In making this assessment, our management used the criteria set forth by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (“COSO”) in Internal Control-Integrated Framework. Based on that evaluation, they concluded that, as of August 31, 2015, such internal controls and procedures were not effective to detect the inappropriate application of US GAAP rules as more fully described below. This was due to deficiencies that existed in the design or operation of our internal control over financial reporting that adversely affected our internal controls and that may be considered to be material weaknesses.
The matters involving internal controls and procedures that the Company’s management considered to be material weaknesses under the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board were: (1) lack of a functioning audit committee and lack of a majority of outside directors on the Company's board of directors, resulting in ineffective oversight in the establishment and monitoring of required internal controls and procedures; (2) inadequate segregation of duties consistent with control objectives; (3) insufficient written policies and procedures for accounting and financial reporting with respect to the requirements and application of US GAAP and SEC disclosure requirements; and (4) ineffective controls over period end financial disclosure and reporting processes. The aforementioned material weaknesses were identified by the Company's Chief Financial Officer in connection with the review of our financial statements as of August 31, 2015 and communicated to our management.
Management believes that the material weaknesses set forth in items (2), (3) and (4) above did not have an effect on the Company's financial results. However, management believes that the lack of a functioning audit committee and lack of a majority of outside directors on the Company's board of directors, resulting in ineffective oversight in the establishment and monitoring of required internal controls and procedures can result in the Company's determination to its financial statements for the future years.
We are committed to improving our financial organization. As part of this commitment, we will create a position to segregate duties consistent with control objectives and will increase our personnel resources and technical accounting expertise within the accounting function when funds are available to the Company: i) Appointing one or more outside directors to our board of directors who shall be appointed to the audit committee of the Company resulting in a fully functioning audit committee who will undertake the oversight in the establishment and monitoring of required internal controls and procedures; and ii) Preparing and implementing sufficient written policies and checklists which will set forth procedures for accounting and financial reporting with respect to the requirements and application of US GAAP and SEC disclosure requirements.
Management believes that the appointment of more outside directors, who shall be appointed to a fully functioning audit committee, will remedy the lack of a functioning audit committee and a lack of a majority of outside directors on the Company's Board. In addition, management believes that preparing and implementing sufficient written policies and checklists will remedy the following material weaknesses (i) insufficient written policies and procedures for accounting and financial reporting with respect to the requirements and application of US GAAP and SEC disclosure requirements; and (ii) ineffective controls over period end financial close and reporting processes. Further, management believes that the hiring of additional personnel who have the technical expertise and knowledge will result proper segregation of duties and provide more checks and balances within the department. Additional personnel will also provide the cross training needed to support the Company if personnel turn over issues within the department occur. This coupled with the appointment of additional outside directors will greatly decrease any control and procedure issues the company may encounter in the future.
