this chapter you should be able to De ne liabilities and distinguish between current and longterm liabilities Account for the issuance and payment of various forms of notes and record the interest on the notes Characterize accrued liabilities and describe when and how they should be recorded l Determine when a liability can be classi ed as a noncurrent obligation including the exceptions to the general classi cation criteria Identify situations that constitute contingencies and the circumstances under which they should be accrued Describe the appropriate accounting treatment for contingencies including unasserted claims and assessments Discuss the primary differences between US GAAP and IFRS with respect to current liabilities and contingencies N Aw tn 1 F CHer HIGHLIGHTS

present values However liabilities payable within aneyear are exempted from this requirement and may be recorded at their face values For nancial reporting purposes liabilities are classi ed as either current liabilities or long term liabilities Current liabilities are those expected to be satis ed with current assets or by the creation of other current liabilities Usually with exceptions these are

Contingencies as either current or longterm assists investors and creditors in assessing the riskiness of a company s obligations The usual types of current liabilities and related accounting issues are described below Accounts Payable and Trade Notes Payable Accounts payable are obligations to suppliers of goods or services that are used in the production andor sale of goods and services and are purchased on credit These liabilities typically are nonintercst bearin The critical accounting aspects of accounts payable are determining their existence and insuring that they are recorded in the proper accounting period Trade notes payable differ from accounts payable in that they are formally recognized by a written note and generally bear interest Interest is calculated as Ft39lMUllNT X ANNUAL RAT X TIME TO MAlllRl39lY Short Term Notes Payable Shortterm notes payable may also arise from cash borrowings from banks or other nancial institutions Most companies rely heavily on short term

denominations of 25000 with maturities ranging from 30 to 270 days Commercial paper Frequently is purchased by other companies as a short term investment and interest usually is discounted at the issuance of the note It usually is backed by a line of credit with a bank allowing the interest rate to be lower than in a bank loan Accounting for commercial paper is exactly the same as for other shortterm notes as shown in our previous illustration Accrued Liabilities Accrued liabilities arise when expenses already have been incurred but cash has not yet been paid accrued expenses These are recorded by adjusting entries at the end of the reporting period prior to preparing nancial statements Examples are salaries payable income taxes payable and interest payable For illustration assume salaries of 600000 have been earned by employees by the end of the period but will not be paid to employees until the following period The expense and related liability are recorded as Salaries e pen c 600000 Salaries payable 600000 Compensation for Future Absences An employer accrues an expense and related liability for employees compensation for future absences such as vacation pay if the obligation meets four conditions 1 The obligation is attributable to employees39 services already performed 2 The paid absence can be taken in a later ear 7 the bene t vests will be compensated even if employment is terminated or the bene t can be accumulated over time 3 Payment is probable 4 The amount can be reasonably estimated Deposits and Advances from Customers When cash is received from a customer as a refundable deposit or as an advance payment for products or services a liability is created to return the deposit or to supply the products or services For instance if a utility company collects a deposit when service is begun for a new customer a liability say Liability 7 refundable deposits is recorded Similarly a magazine publisher records a liability from the sale of magazine subscriptions The liability say Liability 7 magazine subscriptions converts to revenue when magazines are mailed in Chapter 5 we discuss circumsmnces in which customers have paid but the company isn t allowed to recognize revenue because it hasn t performed what needs to be performed to earn revenue in those circumstances we debit the asset paid by the customer typically cash and TheMchw7 quot I 21111 g 174 Intermediate Accounting le Slutml Study Guide Current Liabilities and Contingencies credit unearned revenue a liability When the company performs we debit unearned revenue and credit revenue Like other liabilities obligations produced by customer deposits and advances are classi ed as current or long term liabilities depending on when the obligation is expected to be satis ed Gift Cards Gi cards are a particular type of unearned revenuei Revenue is recognized either when the gi card is redeemed or when the probability of redemption is viewed as remote based on expiration or the company s experience Collections for Third Parties Firms often make collections from customers or from employees on behalf of tax authorities or other third parties The companies then periodically remit these amounts to the appropriate parties in the meantime these amounts represent liabilities Examples include sales taxes payroll taxes employee withholding taxes insurance and union dues Current Maturities of LongTerm Debt A long term obligation usually is reclassified as a current liability when it becomes payable or callable within the coming year or operating cycle For instance a 30 year note is reported as a longterm liability for 29 years but is classi ed as a current liability in its 30th year Exception SherHem obligations can be reported as noncurrent liabilities if the company intend to re nance on a longterm basis an b demonstrates the ability to do so by a re nancing agreement or by actual nancing For instance if new longterm notes or bonds or even new stock will be issued and the proceeds used to pay the maturity amount of the 30year notes above the liability is classi ed as a long term liability Several weeks usually pass between the end of a company s scal year and the date the nancial statements are issued To su rt a company s ability to re nance on a longterm basis a re nancing agreement or actual nancing can occur after the end of the scal year but must exist prior to the issuance of nancial statements An existing credit agreement with a bank that permits longterm borrowing of a suf cient amount can be used to meet this criterion International Financial Reporting Standards Classi cation of the current portion of longterm debt is an area of difference between US GAAP and FRSi Under US GAAP liabilities payable within the coming year are classi ed as longterm liabilities if re nancing is completed before date of issuance of the nancial statements Under IFRS re nancing must be completed before the balance sheet dare on M Ll l 39lnc2ll

outcome will not be known until after the nancial statements are issued Whether a contingency is accrued and reported as a liability depends on a the likelihood that the con rming event will occur It pro able con rming event is likely to occur 2 reasonably possible 7 the chance the continuing event will occur is more than remote but less than likely 34 remote the chance the continuing event will occur is slight and b what can be determined about the amount of loss 1 own 2 reasonably estimable 3 not reasonably estimable A contingent liability is recorded if 1 a loss is probable the continuing event is likely to occur and 2 the amount of loss can be at least reasonably estimated Loss or a pm 9 Liability xxxx xxxx If either of these criteria is not met and if there is at least a reasonable possibility that the loss will occur only footnote disclosure should be made The possibilities are illustrated below Donna AMqu39r 01quot POTENTIAL Loss Reasona easonabiy Known Estlmablc Estimablc

guarantee Warranties and guarantees are loss contingencies for which the conditions for accrual almost always are met Warranty expense 113quot 4jx 39 Estimated warranty liability 140000 l4tt Thus we record the costs of satisfying guarantees as expenses in the same accounting period as the revenues from the products sold matching principle Similarly we also accrue a liability in connection with premium offers Companies frequently offer premium cash rebates centsoff coupons toys For box tops etc to stimulate sales The cost ofpremiums estimated to be provided to customers represents an expense and an estimated liability in the reporting period the product is sold Subsequent Events Recall that several weeks usually pass between the end ofa company s scal year and the date the nancial statements or that year are issued When the cause of a loss contingency occurs before the yearend a clarifying event after the ycar cnd but before the Financial statements are issued can be used to determine how the contingency is reported Unasserted Claims and Assessments Even ifa claim has yet to be made when the nancial statements are issued we still may necd to accrue or disclose a contingency For instance the EPA may have been investigating a chemical spill by a chemical company but hasn t yet proposed a penalty for violation of environmental laws Even then if it is probable that an unassertcd claim or assessment or an untiled lawsuit will occur we apply the usual criteria probable unfavorable outcome and reasonably estimable amount to consider whether and how to report the possible loss Gain Contingencies A gain contingency an uncertain situation that might result in a gain is not accrued Instead we disclose them in the notes to the nancial statements being careful not to give misleading implications about the likelihood of their being realized Executory Contracts Executory unpcrformed contracts or agreements such as Jurymm lgl39eumcnm39 and lines of credit usuall are not rccordcd because a transfer of assets or liabilities has not yet occurred However if the anticipated considerations are material note disulosurc is require i m womanIII CowmanJ 111 Smdem Sttmiv meIc 1L 7 Current Liabilities and Contingencies International Financial Reporting Standards Overall accounting for contingent losses currently is quite similar between IFRS and US GAAP IFRS defines probable as more likely than not which is a lower threshold than typically associated with probable in US GAAP Also lFRS refer to these accrued liabilities as provisions and refer to possible obligations that are not accrued as contingent liabilities The term contingent liabilitiesquot is used for all of these obligations in Us GAAPr And if there is a range of equally likely outcomes associated with a contingency IFRS requires using the midpoint of the range while US GAAP requires using the low end of the range Last IFRS requires reporting present values of estimated cash ows when the effect oftimc value of mono is material US GAAP allows using present values under some circumstances when the timing of cash ows is xed or reliably determinable SELF STUDY QUESTIONS AND
