Chapter 6

Illustrated Solution: Exercise 6-20

Warranty Liability

Using

Service Contracts


Background warranties

Background–Warranties

  • Warranties

    • Obligate the seller to bear repair costs for a specified time period.

    • Create an expense and estimated liability at the time of sale.

    • All estimated expenses are matched against revenues in the period when the item is sold.

    • No revenues or expenses are shown in future years.


Background warranty service contracts

Background–Warranty Service Contracts

  • Warranty Service Contracts

    • Customer pays fixed rate in advance for all repairs and/or maintenance for a specified time period. Services they are not entitled to under standard warranty.

    • Upon receipt, this payment creates a liability (unearned revenue) for the service provider.

    • Liability is reduced over the life of the service contract as revenue is earned.

    • Contract was priced originally so that revenues will exceed expenses (estimated) which will allow the provider to show a profit on the service contracts.
