Deposits outstanding totalled $6,300, and all cheques written by the company were processed by the bank, except for those totalling $8,420. In addition, a $2,000 July deposit from a credit customer was recorded as a $200 debit to cash and credit to accounts receivable, and a cheque correctly recorded by the company as a $30 disbursement was incorrectly processed by the bank as a $300 disbursement.

...company are found in Exhibit 4. Accounting Standards for Private Enterprises (ASPE) As the company is a private company, it was decided that the accounting standards for private enterprises would be adopted for 2011. Consequently, the company’s date of transition is May 1, 2009. The statements for the fiscal year ending April 2010 were restated under ASPE and the 2011 statements were prepared using ASPE. On transition, the following changes and elections were made: 1. Employee defined benefit plan – The company has a defined benefit pension plan for its key managers. Prior to transition, the company had used the corridor approach for recognizing actuarial gains and losses arising from the plan. On transition, at May 1, 2009, the company elected to measure its benefits using the funding valuation method. As a result, the amount reported on the balance sheet as an obligation increased to a net obligation of $130,000 from $60,000 at May 1, 2009. Retained earnings at May 1, 2009 were decreased by $70,000 to reflect this adjustment. During the fiscal year ending April 30, 2010, the net benefit obligation had decreased to $120,000 resulting in a credit to the pension expense of $10,000 in 2010 under ASPE. 2. Investments – The company owns a small investment in three publicly traded companies. Under pre-changeover Canadian GAAP, investments for a private company could be recorded at cost. On transition to ASPE, if the shares have a quoted market price, then the shares must be shown......

Wonder Amusement Limited

...for the company, the stakeholders and their needs, cost capitalization, revenue recognition, necessary disclosures, and risk factors pertaining to Leo's business proposals. The purpose of this report is to give feedback to Leo Titan regarding his accounting strategy and ensure that Wonder Amusement Limited is compliant with the necessary GAAP. We present our findings, focusing on individual points of our previous discussion with Leo. Background and Introduction WAL is a private corporation; all of the shareholders are family members of Howard Smith, the majority and controlling shareholder. None of the family is actively involved in operating the business, and are thus quite dependent on the financial statements. WAL uses ASPE, and there is no indication because of stakeholder needs or future plans that IFRS would be more appropriate. The standard accounting assumptions seem appropriate, including continuity; there is no indication of a continuity problem. There are many users of WAL’s financial statements and the objectives of each user may conflict. The users include: * Creditors. WAL’s creditors look to the financial statements to predict future cash flows so as to determine whether their loans will be repaid. Further, they look to the financial statements to ensure that the loan covenants are not violated. * Minority shareholders. The minority shareholders are not active in the business and need the financial statements to assess and......

Comparative International Accounting

...using the Canadian private enterprise, Good Group. This paper will primarily focus on the Private sector that choose to present under the ASPE system, as both Canada and UK use different accounting standards for which they implement in this sector. Canada’s Accounting System Like many other countries around the world, Canada has multiple accounting standards to meet the needs of different segments within their accounting environment. The system is categorized into three sections: Public Companies: IFRS or US GAAP (Only SEC registrants can apply US GAAP) Private Businesses: IFRS or ASPE Not for Profit Organizations: IFRS or MIC (Made in Canada) The reason for the multiple standards is because as the AcSB stated, “One size does not necessarily fit all” (NotforProfit). Culturally it’s a feminine approach to accounting, which will be explained in more detail further on in this paper. Private Businesses – ASPE (Accounting Standards for Private Enterprises) For Private Companies at stated above, they had the choice of selecting one out of two accounting systems to implement after January 2011, IFRS or ASPE. The ASPE standards are in essence, based on the foundation of their old GAAP system, meaning that most private companies were expected to adopt this system just as Good Group did. The reason for the existence of ASPE is because the old GAAP was heavily critized for being too complex and often required accounting resources that was beyond many of the......

...audit report that Mangle requests. The two other options are (1) international financial reporting standards (IFRS) or (2) Canadian accounting standards for private enteprises (ASPE). IFRS are mandatory for Canadian public companies, but they are much more complex than ASPE. Dubois is still a private company, although some directors indicate that Dubois may issue share to the public in the future. My advice is to use ASPE for the foreseeable future. ASPE has far fewer reporting requirements and more closely corresponds to the historical-cost accounting that Dubois has been using. As well, the financial statements are simpler and will be quite adequate for Mangle and the bank. If the company decides to “go public” in the future, the accounting basis will need to change to IFRS. The prospectus for an initial public offering (IPO) must have comparative financial statements prepared on the basis of IFRS. Therefore, if and when Dubois becomes a public company, prior year’s financial statements will need to be adjusted to a new basis. I see little reason to use IFRS at present, however. I am very glad to be of assistance. If I can provide any additional information or advice, please contact me at 555-217-1937. Sincerely, Note: While this sample response ends with a recommendation for ASPE, students could also recommend IFRS on the basis that if an IPO is in the future, it would be better to get the accounting system operating on that basis. Also, depending on......

Immersive Case

... On December 11, MD received an order for a total price of $22,100. Barbor Furniture Ltd. (Barbor) provided a deposit of $9,000 which was recorded as revenue when it was received on December 13. Barbor was not billed until January 2. The order was not shipped until after the year end on January 2. The remaining balance owing was recorded in accounts receivable and sales. The inventory was excluded from the ending inventory count as well. The issue is whether this is the appropriate time to record the revenue or if another time is more appropriate. The other issue is that the balance owing is not a receivable until the product has left the warehouse. The cost of the sofas should also be included in inventory. Analysis According to ASPE 3400, revenue cannot be recognized until: 1. The seller of the goods has transferred to the buyer the significant risks and rewards of ownership, in that all significant acts have been completed and the seller retains no continuing managerial involvement in, or effective control of, the goods transferred to a degree usually associated with ownership. Not met: MD has not yet provided any goods to the customer, they still owe them an obligation. As such, the couches have not been transferred and the revenue recognition criteria have not been met. 2. Reasonable assurance exists regarding the measurement of the consideration that will be derived from the sale of goods, and the extent to which goods may be returned;......

Case Issues - Accounting

...Angela Kellett, Barrister and Solicitor Common Error Sheet • IFRS/ASPE are the new accounting standard and must be used when discussing all accounting issues. Although the case mentioned GAAP, you learned in class that IFRS was to be used. Going forward, discuss the case using IFRS/ASPE, even if the case says GAAP. • A lot of students missed mentioning that an unqualified audit opinion was needed; this was a constraint in the case. • The required in this case was to “provide advice about terms that should be included in the sale agreement to minimize the risks to Mr. Jones of being affected by accounting choices made by the new owner of the company”. Therefore, you are to write the case from the perspective that the new owner would make accounting choices that would not be fair to Mr. Jones, and to conclude on what is FAIR. • When discussing users and objective, make sure that you conclude on the primary user and objective. Also, make sure you are discussing users based on what is asked of you in the case. This case asked for advice on terms to be included in the sale agreement to minimize the risks to Mr. Jones; therefore, Mr. Jones is the primary user. Since Angela requested this case, she is also the main user. The buyer, CRA, auditor, etc. are not relevant users for this advice. • When discussing the new equipment purchase, a lot of students did not discuss the amortization policy that is to be used. This is an important issue within......

Accounting Case Study

...Enterprises (ASPE) and as the advisor my recommendations will be based on my unbiased and independent understanding of these standards. The primary users of this information will be ABC management who have the objective of understanding their balance sheet post acquisitions to determine whether a request to increase their line of credit is viable. The secondary users include ABC silent investors, who have a financial stake in the business and want to ensure that the company has line of sight to profitability. Also, the bank that provides funds to ABC Company may also be a user of this report to assess the financial health of the firm and determine whether providing more loans to the institutions is warranted. Although this company is privately owned and is not legally subject to using any of the prescribed accounting standards laid out by the Canadian government, I would still recommend the usage of Accounting Standards for Private Enterprises (ASPE) given this company is interested in obtaining external loans from financial institutions that would likely require the use of ASPE. This presents a constraint in that we must diligently follow the rules laid out by ASPE. There are a number of issues relating to patent purchase and accounting for basket purchases presented by the firm. Below is a detailed account, analysis and recommendation of each of the issues encountered: 1. Patent Purchase a. Amortization over Economic versus Legal life According to ASPE there......

For the growing population of the elderly and people with disabilities, ensuring the adequacy and availability of direct care workers is key to meeting this goal. The report showed, “the aging"baby boomer generation" as the most significant factor increasing the demand for long-term care services over the next half century.
