Chapter 10: The Balance Sheet


Two types of relationships between balance sheet income statement l.jpg
Two Types of Relationships between Balance Sheet & Income Statement

  • Articulated

    • The two statements are mathematically linked

    • Net income is equal to the change in owners’ equity for a period, assuming no capital transactions or prior period adjustments

  • Nonarticulated

    • The two statements are independently defined

    • The relationship between the balance sheet and the income statement is severed

Accounting classification system l.jpg
Accounting Classification System Statement

  • Rather simple

  • Complex transactions do not always fit neatly into one of the categories

  • Surprisingly, current accounting classification system is virtually unchanged since Luca Pacioli’s time


Articulated system alternatives l.jpg
Articulated System Alternatives Statement

  • Revenue-Expense approach

    • Concerned with the definition, recognition, and measurement of income

    • Result is that balance sheet contains assets, liabilities and ambiguous debits and credits called deferred charges and deferred credits

  • Asset-Liability approach

    • SFAC No. 6 defines comprehensive income as the change in the firm’s net assets from nonowner sources

    • Focuses on the measurement of net assets


Definitions assets l.jpg
Definitions: Assets Statement

  • Something represented by a debit balance that is or would be properly carried forward upon a closing of books of account according to the rules or principles of accounting…

  • Economic resources of an enterprise that are recognized and measured in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles. Assets also include certain deferred charges...

  • Assets are probable future economic benefits obtained or controlled by a particular entity as a result of past transactions or events.


Asset definition trend l.jpg

Definitions of assets have evolved from a narrow legal orientation to a broader concept of economic resources.

As the definition has broadened, the boundary around what is and what is not an asset has become hazy and ambiguous.

Asset Definition Trend


Executory contracts assets l.jpg
Executory Contracts: Assets? orientation to a broader concept of economic resources.

  • a contract unperformed by both parties.

  • A long-standing problem in accounting has been the question of how to account (if at all) for mutually unperformed executory contracts.

  • traditional accounting view is that no recognition is required in financial statements because a binding exchange has not yet occurred. The contract is prospective.


Recognition and measurement l.jpg
Recognition and Measurement orientation to a broader concept of economic resources.

  • Assets and liabilities generally are initially recorded on the basis of events in which the enterprise acquires resources from other entities or incurs obligations to other entities.

  • The assets and liabilities are measured by the exchange prices at which the transfers take place.


Assets l.jpg
Assets orientation to a broader concept of economic resources.

  • Initially recognized when the transaction transferring control occurs

  • At this point in time, a potential exists for future economic benefits

  • Measured at the market value (exchange price) of the consideration exchanged or sacrificed to acquire the assets and place them in operating condition

    • called historical acquisition cost

    • however, an asset should not be recorded in an amount greater than its cash equivalent purchase price


Asset valuation a lack of additivity l.jpg
Asset Valuation: A Lack of orientation to a broader concept of economic resources.Additivity

  • original acquisition cost (historical cost)

  • historical cost less cumulative charges to income (book value)

  • replacement cost

  • selling prices

  • net realizable value

  • net realizable value less normal markups


Asset classification l.jpg
Asset Classification orientation to a broader concept of economic resources.

  • Tangible

  • Intangible

    • Copyrights

    • Patents

    • Trademarks

    • Purchased goodwill

    • Franchise agreements


Assets intangibles l.jpg
Assets: Intangibles orientation to a broader concept of economic resources.

  • Period cost R&D; do not capitalize

  • Lev and Zarowin (1999)

    • Immediate write-off of intangibles lowers correlation between earnings and security prices; consistent with prior studies

    • Propose extending capitalization of some intangibles similar to software cost capitalization

Definition liabilities l.jpg
Definition: Liabilities orientation to a broader concept of economic resources.

  • ... not only items which constitute liabilities in the popular sense of debts or obligations ...but also credit balances to be accounted for which do not involve a debtor and creditor relation

  • economic obligations of an enterprise recognized and measured in conformity with GAAP

  • probable future sacrifices of economic benefits

Definition hybrid securities l.jpg
Definition: Hybrid Securities orientation to a broader concept of economic resources.

  • Redeemable preferred stock

  • Trust preferred stock

  • Two types

    • Forward-based derivatives

    • Options-based derivatives


Types of derivatives l.jpg
Types of Derivatives orientation to a broader concept of economic resources.

  • Forward-based derivatives arise between two parties where one party will realize a gain and the other party will realize a loss due to a change in value of the factor underlying the instrument.

  • Option holders pay a specific “up front” price that gives them the right to buy (“call”) or sell (“put”) a specific quantity at a specific price of a standard commodity or a financial or equity instrument.


Balance sheet classification issues l.jpg
Balance Sheet Classification Issues orientation to a broader concept of economic resources.

  • There are five distinctly different types of accounting liabilities:

    • contractual,

    • constructive,

    • equitable,

    • contingent,

    • and deferred charges


Improving accounting standards l.jpg
