1 1 - Accrual vs Deferral Accrual vs Cash Basis - understanding debits and credits a transaction either increases or decreases the balance of accounts. increases and decreases in accounts are based on the convention of debits and credits. debit means left side of accounts, and credit means right side of accounts. the following is the accounting equation in T-account form and the rules for how debits and credits operate to reflect increases or decreases to various accounts. Stockholders' Asset Accounts = Liability Accounts + Equity Accounts DR CR DR CR DR CR increase decrease decrease increase decrease increase the account the account the account the account the account the account balance balance balance balance balance balance the DR and CR rules treat revenue and expense accounts like stockholders' equity account. Revenues Expenses (that is, SE increases) (that is, SE decreases) DR CR DR CR decrease increase increase decrease the account the account the account the account balance balance balance balance for each transaction, the dollar total of the debits must equal the dollar total of the credits. Example 1: cash-basis income determination on 1/1/1st year, SK sells a 3-year subscription to its quarterly magazine to 1,000 subscribers. on 1/1/1st year, SK receives the full subsription price of \$240 (12 issues \$20 per issue) from each of the subscribers (\$240 1,000 = \$240,000). on 1/1/1st year, SK borrows \$100,000 (interest rate: 10%). total interest of \$30,000 is payable on 12/31/3rd year. the cost of publishing and distributing the magazine amounts to \$20,000 each year, which is paid in cash at the time of publication. cash-basis entries for 1st year

3 3 - the magazine is delivered to the subscriber and the revenues are earned. likewise, accrual accounting recognizes interest expense in each year the bank loan is outstanding, not just when the interest is paid. these modifications to the cash basis results are made via a series of adjusting entries. accrual basis accounting requires the reporting of revenues when earned and expenses when incurred, regardless of timing of cash receipts and cash payments. accrual accounting better matches economic benefit with economic effort, thereby producing a measure of operating performance that provides a more realistic picture of past economic activities. - principles of accrual accounting revenue is normally recognized when earned regardless of when cash is actually received. if cash is collected before goods or services are delivered, revenue has not yet been earned. Therefore, revenue is deferred, and a liability account (not a revenue account) is used. deferrals of revenue occur because cash came in before the earnings process was completed. if goods or services are delivered and cash is not collected, the earnings are accrued before cash is actually collected. Therefore, the asset results from a revenue accrual and an asset account (a receivable) is used. accruals of revenue occur when the earnings process has been completed before the cash has been received. matching principle requires that costs incurred to generate revenues must be recognized in the same period. a matching of costs with benefits is required regardless of when cash is actually paid. expenses are resources "used up" to generate revenues. when cash is paid for assets or services before they are used up, an expense is deferred since it will be used in the future. therefore, an asset account is established. deferrals of expenses occur because cash has been spent but the acquired assets are not yet used. if employees provide services or goods are received from suppliers and payment has not yet been made, the expense has been accrued before cash is actually spent. since the cash payment will occur in the future, a liability results from an expense accrual. accruals of expenses occur because goods or services have been provided to

5 5 - entries of this type: Expense Asset (or contra-asset) adjustments for unearned revenue recognize that amounts paid in advance have been earned. Entries of this type: Liability Revenue adjustments for accrued expenses recognize that expenses are incurred when the underlying economic event occurs, not necessarily when the cash flows out. Entries of this type: Expense Liability adjustments for accrued revenue recognize that revenue is earned when the services have been performed or when goods are exchanged, not necessarily when cash is received. Entries of this type: Asset Revenue Example 2: adjustments for prepayments on 12/1/1st year, an insurance policy for one year is acquired for \$1,200. on 12/31/1st year, one month's coverage has elapsed. initial transaction adjusting entry Prepaid insurance 1,200 Insurance expense 100 Cash 1,200 Prepaid insurance 100 on 12/1/1st year, a building is acquired for \$50,000. building depreciation for December amounts to \$300.

The bank is requesting 2008 financial statements prepared on the accrual basis of accounting from Baron. During the course of a review engagement, Baron's accountant obtained the following additional information: 1. Amounts due from customers totaled \$32,000 at Decemebr 31, An analysis of the receivables revealed that an allowance for uncollectible accounts for \$3,800 should be provided. 3. Unpaid invoices for flower purchases totaled \$30,500 and \$17,000 at December 31, 2008, and December 31, 2007, respectively. 4. A physical count of the goods at December 31, 2008 determined that the inventory totaled \$72,800. The inventory was priced at cost, which approximates market value. 5.

As

10 10 - agreed to in the lease, Baron paved and fenced in the lot at a cost of \$45,000. The improvements were completed on April 1, 2008, and have an estimated useful life of 15 years. No provision for depreciation or amortization has been recorded. Depreciation on furniture and fixtures was \$12,000 for Accrued expenses at December 31, 2007 and 2008 follows: utilities, \$900 \$1,500 payroll taxes 1,100 1,600 \$2,000 \$3, Baron was notified late in the year of a lawsuit filed against his business for an injury to a customer. His attorney believes that the unfavorable outcome is probable and that a reasonable estimate of the settlement exclusive of amounts covered by insurance is \$50, The Salaries account includes \$4,000 per month paid to the proprietor. He also receives \$250 per week for living expenses. These amounts should have been charged to Baron's drawing account.
