Prepare your solution in an MS Excel Workbook with one Worksheet devoted to each question. Each worksheet should contain the answers to only one question. Name the bottom tab of each worksheet according to the question number being addressed. Failure to follow the above instructions may cost you some points. o Only MS Excel format is acceptable for submission. Please do not use any other software or I may have to return the file without grading it. o All questions should be answered keeping in mind “US GAAP”, unless mentioned otherwise. Read each question carefully before you attempt to answer. 1. UM Contractors received a contract to construct a mental health facility for $2,500,000. Construction was begun in 2008 and completed in 2009. Cost and other data are presented below: 2008 2009 Cost incurred during the year 1,500,000 1,300,000 Estimated costs to complete 1,200,000 0 Billings during the year 1,200,000 1,300,000 Cash collections during the year 1,000,000 1,500,000 (i) Assume that UMU uses the percentage-of-completion method for revenue recognition. Required: Compute and show separately the amounts of gross profit (loss) recognized during 2008 and 2009 from the above contract. (6 points) (ii) Assume that UMU reports under the completed contract method of revenue recognition. Required: Compute and show separately the amounts of gross profit (loss) recognized during 2008 and 2009 from the above contract. (4 points) 2. Answer each of the following multiple-choice questions by picking the appropriate answer from the given choices. (1 point each) (i) The percentage-of-completion method violates the general rule on revenue recognition that: A. Collection is reasonably assured. B. Costs are known or reasonably estimated. C. The earnings process is complete. D. Collections have been received. (ii) For a typical manufacturing company, the most common critical point for recognizing revenue is the date: A. An order is received. B. Production is completed. C. The product is delivered. D. Payment is received. (iii) Reliable Enterprises sells distressed merchandise on extended credit terms. Collections on these sales are not reasonably assured and bad debt losses cannot be reasonably predicted. It is unlikely that repossessed merchandise will be in salable condition. Merchandise costing $30,000 was sold for $55,000 in 2008. Collections on this sale were $20,000 in 2008, $15,000 in 2009, and $20,000 in 2010. In 2008, Reliable would recognize gross profit of: A. $ 0. B. $25,000. C. $ 8,090. D. $ 8,333. (iv) Boomerang Computer Company sells computers with an unconditional right to return the computer if the customer is not satisfied.

Boomerang most likely should recognize revenue: A. When Boomerang delivers a computer to a customer. B. When Boomerang receives cash from the customer. C. When a customer returns a computer. D. Never, because the right of return is unconditional. (v) Gunk Goblin sells vacuums and just launched a policy where customers have the right to return a vacuum during a three-year period following purchase. Gunk management has no experience under this sort of policy, and does not believe it can accurately estimate returns. What is the longest period of time that Gunk may have to wait before recognizing gross profit associated with one of these sales? A. No time delay, recognize gross profit upon delivery. B. Gunk should recognize gross profit as cash is received under the installment method. C. Gunk should defer gross until costs are recovered under the cost recovery method. D. Three years, after the right of return has expired. (vi) Todd Sweeney is an artist who sells his work under consignment (he displays his work in local barbershops, and customers buy the work there). Sweeney recently transferred a painting to a local barbershop. 83. Sweeney most likely should recognize revenue when: A. He paints the painting, as the painting is accreting. B. When he transfers a painting to a barbershop. C. When the barbershop sells the painting. D. When the barbershop's right of return expires. (vii) In question vi above, after Sweeney has transferred a painting to a barbershop, the painting: A. Should be counted in Sweeney's inventory until the barbershop sells it. B. Should be counted in the barbershop's inventory, as they now possess it. C. Should be counted in either Sweeney's or the barbershop's inventory, depending on which incurred the cost of preparing the painting for display. D. None of these. Chapter 6 3. Answer each of the following multiple-choice questions by picking the appropriate answer from the given choices.

The maturity date of Loan A will be: A. Earlier than Loan B. B. Later than Loan B. C. The same as Loan B. D. Indeterminate with respect to loan B. (iv) Yamaha Inc. hires a new chief financial officer and promises to pay him a lump sum bonus four years after he joins the company. The new CFO insists that the company invest an amount of money at the beginning of each year in a 7% fixed rate investment fund to insure the bonus will be available. To determine the amount that must be invested each year, a computation must be made using the formula for: A. The future value of a deferred annuity. B. The future value of an ordinary annuity. C. The future value of an annuity due. D. None of these is correct. (v) Zulu Corporation hires a new chief executive officer and promises to pay her a signing bonus of $2 million per year for 10 years, starting five years after she joins the company.

Companies can have accounts receivable from ordinary trade customers and from related parties (e.g., directors, employees or large shareholders).

Why might separate disclosure of related party receivables be useful? (4 points) Chapter 8 6. Indicate in each of the spaces provided, the effect of the described errors on the various elements of our company's financial statements. Use the following codes: O = amount is overstated; U = amount is understated; NE = no effect. Assume a periodic inventory system, and that all purchases and sales are on credit.

C Goods in transit shipped by us "f.o.b. destination" to a customer were recorded by us as a sale and were not included in our ending inventory.
