The accounts which have been outstanding over 75 days ($15,000)


and have zero probability of collection would be written off immediately by
a debit to Allowance for Doubtful Accounts for $15,000 and a credit to
Accounts Receivable for $15,000. It is not considered when deter-
mining the proper amount for the Allowance for Doubtful Accounts.

SOAL 4

P7-4 (Bad-Debt Reporting) From inception of operations to December 31, 2012, Fortner Corporation
provided
for uncollectible accounts receivable under the allowance method: provisions were made monthly at
2% of credit sales; bad debts written off were charged to the allowance account; recoveries of bad debts
previously written off were credited to the allowance account; and no year-end adjustments to the
allowance
account were made. Fortners usual credit terms are net 30 days.
The balance in Allowance for Doubtful Accounts was $130,000 at January 1, 2012. During 2012,
credit sales totaled $9,000,000, interim provisions for doubtful accounts were made at 2% of credit sales,
$90,000 of bad debts were written off, and recoveries of accounts previously written off amounted to
$15,000.Fortner installed a computer system in November 2012, and an aging of accounts receivable was
prepared for the first time as of December 31, 2012. A summary of the aging is as follows.
Classification by Balance in Estimated %
Month of Sale Each Category Uncollectible
NovemberDecember 2012 $1,080,000 2%
JulyOctober 650,000 10%
JanuaryJune 420,000 25%
Prior to 1/1/12 150,000 80%
$2,300,000
Based on the review of collectibility of the account balances in the prior to 1/1/12 aging category,
additional receivables totaling $60,000 were written off as of December 31, 2012. The 80% uncollectible
estimate applies to the remaining $90,000 in the category. Effective with the year ended December 31,
2012, Fortner adopted a different method for estimating the allowance for doubtful accounts at the amount
indicated by the year-end aging analysis of accounts receivable.
Instructions
(a) Prepare a schedule analyzing the changes in Allowance for Doubtful Accounts for the year ended
December 31, 2012. Show supporting computations in good form. (Hint: In computing the 12/31/12
allowance, subtract the $60,000 write-off).

P10-7 (Capitalization of Interest) Laserwords Inc. is a book distributor that had been operating in its
original facility since 1985. The increase in certification programs and continuing education requirements in
several professions has contributed to an annual growth rate of 15% for Laserwords since 2007.
Laserwordsoriginal facility became obsolete by early 2012 because of the increased sales volume and the
fact that Laserwords now carries CDs in addition to books.
On June 1, 2012, Laserwords contracted with Black Construction to have a new building
constructed for $4,000,000 on land owned by Laserwords. The payments made by Laserwords to Black
Construction are shown in the schedule below.
Date Amount
July 30, 2012 $ 900,000
January 30, 2013 1,500,000
May 30, 2013 1,600,000
Total payments $4,000,000
Construction was completed and the building was ready for occupancy on May 27, 2013.
Laserwords had no new borrowings directly associated with the new building but had the following debt
outstanding at May 31, 2013, the end of its fiscal year.
10%, 5-year note payable of $2,000,000, dated April 1, 2009, with interest payable annually on
April 1.
12%, 10-year bond issue of $3,000,000 sold at par on June 30, 2005, with interest payable
annually on June 30.

The new building qualifies for interest capitalization. The effect of capitalizing the interest on the
new building, compared with the effect of expensing the interest, is material.

P11-1 (Depreciation for Partial PeriodSL, SYD, and DDB) Alladin Company purchased Machine
#201 on May 1, 2012. The following information relating to Machine #201 was gathered at the end of May.
Price $85,000
Credit terms 2/10, n/30
Freight-in costs $ 800
Preparation and installation costs $ 3,800
Labor costs during regular production operations $10,500
It was expected that the machine could be used for 10 years, after which the salvage value would be
zero. Alladin intends to use the machine for only 8 years, however, after which it expects to be able to sell
it for $1,500. The invoice for Machine #201 was paid May 5, 2012. Alladin uses the calendar year as the
basis for the preparation of financial statements.

Instructions
(a) Compute the depreciation expense for the years indicated using the following methods. (Round to
the nearest dollar.)
(1) Straight-line method for 2012.
(2) Sum-of-the-years-digits method for 2013.
(3) Double-declining-balance method for 2012.

(b) Suppose Kate Crow, the president of Alladin, tells you that because the company is a new
organization, she expects it will be several years before production and sales reach optimum levels. She
asks you to recommend a depreciation method that will allocate less of the companys depreciation
expense to the early years and more to later years of the assets lives. What method would you
recommend?

P12-2 (Accounting for Patents) Fields Laboratories holds a valuable patent (No. 758-6002-
1A) on a precipitator that prevents certain types of air pollution. Fields does not manufacture
or sell the products and processes it develops. Instead, it conducts research and develops
products and processes which it patents, and then assigns the patents to manufacturers on
a royalty basis. Occasionally it sells a patent. The history of Fields patent number 758-6002-
1A is as follows.

P12-5 (Goodwill, Impairment) On July 31, 2012, Mexico Company paid $3,000,000 to
acquire all of the common stock of Conchita Incorporated, which became a division of
Mexico. Conchita reported the following balance sheet at the time of the acquisition.
Current assets $ 800,000 Current liabilities $ 600,000
Noncurrent assets 2,700,000 Long-term liabilities 500,000
Total assets $3,500,000 Stockholders equity 2,400,000
Total liabilities and
stockholders equity $3,500,000
It was determined at the date of the purchase that the fair value of the identifiable net assets
of Conchita was $2,750,000. Over the next 6 months of operations, the newly purchased
division experienced operating losses. In addition, it now appears that it will generate
substantial losses for the foreseeable future. At December 31, 2012, Conchita reports the
following balance sheet information.
Current assets $ 450,000
Noncurrent assets (including goodwill recognized in purchase) 2,400,000
Current liabilities (700,000)
Long-term liabilities (500,000)
Net assets $1,650,000
It is determined that the fair value of the Conchita Division is $1,850,000. The recorded
amount for Conchitas net assets (excluding goodwill) is the same as fair value, except for
property, plant, and equipment, which has a fair value $150,000 above the carrying value.
Instructions
(a) Compute the amount of goodwill recognized, if any, on July 31, 2012.
(b) Determine the impairment loss, if any, to be recorded on December 31, 2012.
(c) Assume that fair value of the Conchita Division is $1,600,000 instead of $1,850,000.
Determine the impairment loss, if any, to be recorded on December 31, 2012.
(d) Prepare the journal entry to record the impairment loss, if any, and indicate where the
loss would be reported in the income statement.

PROBLEM 12-5

(a) Goodwill = Excess of the cost of the division over the fair
value of the identifiable assets:

$3,000,000 $2,750,000 = $250,000

(b) No impairment loss is recorded, because the recoverable


amount of Conchita ($1,850,000) is greater than carrying value
of the net assets ($1,650,000).

(c) Computation of impairment:

Goodwill impairment = Recoverable amount of division less


the carrying value of the division (adjusted for fair value
changes), net of goodwill:
Recoverable amount of Conchita division...... $1,600,000
Carrying value of division .................................... 1,800,000
Impairment loss .................................................... ($ 200,000)

(d) Loss on Impairment.............................$200,000


Goodwill.................................................... 200,000

This loss will be reported in income as a separate line item before


the subtotal income from continuing operations.
