Q:Sometimes a business entity changes its method of accounting forSometimes a business entity changes its method of accounting for certain items. The change may be classified as a change in accounting principle, a change in accounting estimate, or a change in reporting entity. Following are three independent, unrelated sets of facts relating to accounting changes.
Situation 1
A company determined that the depreciable lives of its fixed assets were currently too long to fairly match the cost of the fixed assets with the revenue produced. The company decided at the beginning of the current year to reduce the depreciable lives of all its existing fixed assets by five years.
Situation 2
On December 31, 2016, Gary Company owned 51 percent of Allen Company, at which time Gary reported its investment using the cost method owing to political uncertainties in the country in which Allen was located. On January 2, 2017, the management of Gary Company was satisfied that the political uncertainties were resolved and that the assets of the company were in no danger of nationalization. Accordingly, Gary will prepare consolidated financial statements for Gary and Allen for the year ended December 31, 2017.
Situation 3
A company decides in January 2017 to adopt the straight‐line method of depreciation for plant equipment. This method will be used for new acquisitions as well as for previously acquired plant equipment for which depreciation had been provided on an accelerated basis.
Required:
For each of the preceding situations, provide the following information. Complete your discussion of each situation before going on to the next situation.

Q:The following financial statement was prepared by employees of your

The following financial statement was prepared by employees of your client, Linus Construction Company. The statement is not accompanied by footnotes, but you have discovered the following:

• The average completion period for the company’s jobs is 18 months. The company’s method of journalizing contract transactions is summarized in the following pro forma entries.
• Linus both owns and leases equipment used on construction jobs. Typically, its equipment lease contracts provide that Linus may return the equipment upon completion of a job or may apply all rentals in full toward purchase of the equipment. About 70 percent of lease rental payments made in the past have been applied to the purchase of equipment. While leased equipment is in use, rents are charged to the account payments made on leased equipment (except for \$1 balance) and to jobs on which the equipment has been used. In the event of purchase
• The balance in the payments made on leased equipment account is transferred to the machinery and equipment account, and the depreciation and other related accounts are corrected.
Management is unable to develop dependable estimates of costs to complete contracts in progress.

Q:Jay Manufacturing, Inc., began operations five years ago producing theJay Manufacturing, Inc., began operations five years ago producing the probos, a new type of instrument it hoped to sell to doctors, dentists, and hospitals. The demand for probos far exceeded initial expectations, and the company was unable to produce enough probos to meet that demand. Jay was manufacturing probos on equipment it built at the start of its operations, but it needed more efficient equipment to meet demand. Company management decided to design and build the equipment because no equipment currently available on the market was suitable for producing probos.
In 2017, a section of the plant was devoted to development of the new equipment and a special staff of personnel was hired. Within six months, a machine was developed at a cost of \$170,000 that increased production and reduced labor cost substantially. Sparked by the success of the new machine, the company built three more machines of the same type at a cost of \$80,000 each.
Required:
a. In addition to satisfying a need that outsiders cannot meet within the desired time, what other reasons might cause a firm to construct fixed assets for its own use?
b. In general, what costs should be capitalized for a self‐constructed asset?
c. Discuss the appropriateness (give pros and cons) of including these charges in the capitalized cost of self‐constructed assets:
i. The increase in overhead caused by the self‐construction of fixed assets
ii. A proportionate share of overhead on the same basis as that applied to goods manufactured for sale (consider whether the company is at full capacity)
d. Discuss the proper accounting treatment of the \$90,000 (\$170,000 – \$80,000) by which the cost of the first machine exceeded the cost of the subsequent machines.

Q:Whiley Company issued a \$100,000, five‐year, 10 percent note toWhiley Company issued a \$100,000, five‐year, 10 percent note to Security Company on January 2, 2016. Interest was to be paid annually each December 31. The stated rate of interest reflected the market rate of interest on similar notes.
Whiley made the first interest payment on December 31, 2016. Owing to financial difficulties, the firm was unable to pay any interest on December 31, 2017. Security Co. agreed to the following terms:
1. The \$100,000 principal would be payable in five equal installments, beginning December 31, 2017.
2. The accrued interest at December 31, 2017, would be forgiven.
3. Whiley would be required to make no other payments. Because of the risk associated with the note, it has no determinable fair value. The note is secured by equipment having a fair value of \$80,000 at December 31, 2017. The present value of the five equal installments discounted at 10 percent is \$75,815.
Required:
a. Under current U.S. GAAP, at which amount would Whiley report the restructured liability at December 31, 2017? Explain. How much gain would Whiley recognize in its income statement for 2017? Explain. How much interest expense would Whiley recognize in 2016? Explain.
b. Under current U.S. GAAP, what alternatives does Security have for reporting the restructured receivable? Explain. How would each alternative affect the 2017 income statement and future interest revenue? Explain.
c. Discuss the pros and cons of the alternatives in (b) and compare them to the prior U.S. GAAP treatment (treatment that was reciprocal to the debtor).
Q:Baker Company needs \$1 million to expand its existing plant.

Baker Company needs \$1 million to expand its existing plant. Baker management is considering the following two alternative forms of financing:

1. At the beginning of 2017, issue \$1 million of convertible, 10‐year, 10 percent bonds. Each \$1,000 bond can be converted into 20 shares of Baker \$10 par value common stock. The conversion may take place any time after three years.

2. At the beginning of 2017, issue 10,000 shares of \$100 par value, \$10, redeemable preferred stock. The preferred is redeemable at \$102 ten years from the date of issue.

Baker’s management is concerned about the effects of the two alternatives on cash flows, their financial statements, and future financing for other planned expansion activities. Also, existing debt covenants restrict the debt‐to‐equity ratio to 2:1; \$1 million in new debt would cause the debt‐to‐equity ratio to be close to 2:1. Baker believes that either the bonds or the preferred stock could be sold at par value. Their income tax rate is 34 percent.

Baker Company common stock is currently selling for \$45 per share.

Required:

a. Discuss the theoretical and current U.S. GAAP treatments for convertible bonds.

b. Discuss the current U.S. GAAP treatment for redeemable preferred stock.

c. Compare the effects of the two financing alternatives on Baker Company’s balance sheet, income statement, and cash flows under current U.S. GAAP. Your comparison should consider 2017 and future years, the potential conversion of the bonds, and the debt covenant restrictions.
