- Managers want their companies to appear successful when financial statements are issued. With revenues as high as possible and expenses as low as possible, net income will be elevated. Managers might be tempted to report revenues even though the earnings process is not complete. Also, if some expenses can be put off until a later time, net income will appear larger. Many times manager bonuses are calculated based on net income. Lower net income could cause an adverse reaction in the market place regarding share prices. This could cause some managers to lose their jobs.
- Net income on the income statement is an application of the accrual basis of accounting. Revenues are reported when earned and expenses incurred are matched to those earned revenues. The net cash flows from operating activities on the statement of cash flows are reported on the cash basis of accounting. That is, amounts received from customers and amounts paid for expenses are on the statement of cash flows. Therefore, the difference in net income and net cash from operating activities is a timing issue.
- (a) 2.05, (b) 1.95
- Accrued expense :: An expense incurred, but not yet recorded nor paid. and Deferred expense :: An expense paid, but not yet
incurred. and Accrued revenue :: revenue earned, but not yet recorded nor collected. and Deferred revenue :: A revenue collected, but not yet earned.

- Noncurrent assets are those that a business retains for long periods of time for use in the course of normal operations rather than for sale.
- One of the most important challenges facing managers is forecasting the level of productive capacity (fixed assets) needed in the long run to meet customer demand.
- Because of its large investment in equipment, West Jet closely monitors the unused seats on flights since it may be more profitable to reduce fares to fill more seats thereby using more of the capacity.
- The cost allocation method utilized affects the amount of net property, plant, and equipment that is used in the computation of the fixed asset turnover ratio.
- Building and equipment are recorded at their cost at acquisition and are subsequently reported at cost less accumulated amortization.
- When an operational asset is acquired for noncash consideration, the cost of the asset received always is measured as the book value of the noncash consideration given up.
- If a second-hand machine is purchased for operational use in a business, all renovation and repair costs on the used machine incurred by the purchaser prior to its operational use should be excluded from the cost of the asset.
- Acquisition cost of property, plant, and equipment is the cash-equivalent purchase price plus all reasonable and necessary expenditures made to acquire and prepare the asset for its intended use. True False
- Expenditures made after the asset is in use are always capital expenditures. True False
- Behren Company purchased a building and the parcel of land on which the building was located for a total purchase price of $810,000. To record the acquisition, the account, Building, should be debited for $810,000.
- Because of depreciation, the net carrying amount of an asset declines over time and profit is reduced by the amount of the expense.
- When a company acquires land by issuing 10,000 of its common shares currently trading for $20 per share, the company must get an appraisal of the land and recognize a gain if the appraised value is more than the $200,000 value of the shares issued.
- A company that is self-constructing a new store, which will open upon completion, is allowed to capitalize the interest during the period of construction if they finance the construction with actual loans.
- In conformity with the historical cost principle, cost (less any estimated residual value) is allocated to periodic expense over the periods benefited.
- The cost of a major addition to an operational asset should be recorded as an asset and amortized over its useful life.
- All tangible operational assets (classified as property, plant, and equipment) are subject to amortization.
- When events or changes in circumstances reduce the estimated future cash flows of long-lived assets below their book value, the book values should be written down (by recording a loss) to the fair value of the assets.
- In accounting for amortization, acquisition cost and useful life usually are known quantities, whereas residual value is an estimate because it relates to an amount in the future.
- Revenue expenditures on operational assets are accounted for as expenses, while capital expenditures are accounted for as assets.
- Extraordinary repairs on operational assets are classified as capital expenditures if they extend the life of the asset.
- Ordinary repairs and maintenance of operational assets should be capitalized and amortized over the remaining useful life of the related asset.
- Only the actual acquisition cost, the estimated useful life, and the method of amortization of an operational asset are required to compute the amortization expense for a period.
- Amortization and depletion conceptually are different because they apply to different kinds of operational assets.
- One example of a capital expenditure is ordinary maintenance cost such as an oil change for a company truck.
- If an accountant calculates amortization expense on an asset without taking into account the assets residual value of $5,000, amortization expense for the periods will be lower than it should have been. True False
- No clear line distinguishes capital expenditures (assets) from revenue expenditures (expenses); therefore, it requires managers to exercise judgment in making a subjective decision.
- When Ford Motor Company expenses a $200 tool used in manufacturing, instead of capitalizing its cost as an asset, it does so because of the conservatism convention.
- The estimated useful life is the total years we expect an asset to be used by all potential users. True False
- The declining-balance method of amortization is based on the assumption that amortization expenses can be regarded as a constant function of time.
- The book value of an operational asset initially declines less rapidly under the straight-line method than under the declining-balance method.
- When using the declining-balance method of amortization, a declining percentage is applied to a constant book value.
- The straight-line amortization method assumes an approximately equal decline in the economic usefulness of the asset each period and provides greater tax benefits early in the useful life of the asset.
- Accelerated amortization methods are not desirable from the income tax point of view because the asset will produce a greater net income when it is new (the early years) than when it is older (the later years).
- When either the estimated useful life or estimated residual value (or both) of an operational asset are changed, all prior financial statements are reissued reflecting the correction retroactively.
- A change in the estimated useful life of a tangible operational asset may be required due to economic or technological changes.
- The declining-balance method of amortization is appropriate for companies that expect their equipment or other assets to become obsolete fairly rapidly.
- Regardless of the method of amortization used under generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the ending book value will be the same at the end of the assets economic life.
- The estimate of residual value made at the beginning of the useful life has no relationship to the book value at the end of the assets useful life.
- Since the Capital Cost Allowance is used by most corporations for tax reporting, the majority of corporations no longer use accelerated methods for financial reporting since there is no tax advantage to be gained by using those methods.
- While estimated residual value is not used to calculate annual amortization expense under the double declining-balance method, it is used in calculating the assets book value at the end of its estimated useful life.
- The consistency principle requires we use only one method of amortization for all our types of operational assets.
- Use of an accelerated amortization method would lead to a higher reported expense and lower income in the first year of an assets life in comparison to a non-accelerated method.
- It is illegal to maintain two sets of books so we must adopt the same amortization method for both financial reporting and tax reporting.
- Companies cannot change the method of amortization adopted for a group of assets. True False
- Amortization expense, as computed for financial reporting, has a direct effect on a corporations cash flow.
- Acquiring and disposing of long-lived assets are financing activities on the cash flow statement. True False
- Depreciation expense is a noncash expense that has no effect on cash. True False

- When assets are disposed of through sale or abandonment, recognize any gains or losses when the assets net carrying amount is not equal to the cash received.
- When assets are disposed of through sale or abandonment, record additional depreciation since the last adjustment was made.
- The fixed asset turnover ratio measures how much net income is generated by use of operational (fixed) assets.
- A company with relatively small amounts of long-lived operational assets but which has a high level of inventory would most likely have a lower total asset turnover but a higher fixed asset turnover ratio. True False
- Use of straight-line amortization will lead to reporting a higher fixed asset turnover in the early years of an assets life in comparison to using an accelerated amortization method.
- An expanding company that is acquiring more operational assets most likely will experience a decrease in its asset turnover ratio until higher future sales are generated.
- The cost principle should be applied in recording the acquisition of natural resources and intangible assets.
- Natural resources should be depleted (usually by the units-of-production method) usually with the amount of the depletion expense capitalized to a revenue account.
- Intangibles with definite useful lives are amortized using the straight-line method. True False
- Most companies do not estimate a residual value for intangible assets since the legal benefits they provide are completely used up at the end of their useful or legal lives, whichever is shorter.
