Chapter 8--Learning Objectives
  • 1. Understand the composition and control of cash
what is cash3
What is cash ?
  • For accounting purposes, cash includes:
  • Currency and coins (including petty cash)
  • Demand deposits (checking accounts)
  • Checks, drafts and money orders
  • Readily usable foreign currency
  • Savings accounts (technically investments)
what is not cash
What is NOT cash ?
  • Postage stamps
  • Post-dated checks
  • Certificates of deposit
  • IOUs and notes receivable
cash equivalents
Cash equivalents
  • Must be readily convertible to cash
  • Must be close to maturity
  • Cash equivalents frequently include:
  • Treasury bills
  • Commercial paper
  • Certificates of deposit
  • (within 90 days of maturity)
internal control
Internal control
  • Procedures used to safeguard assets
  • Probably cannot prevent theft altogether
  • But can make the potential crook’s job more difficult
  • Separate duties
  • Create paper trails
cash control
Cash Control
  • Record and deposit receipts promptly
  • Separation of duties
  • No unauthorized or undocumented disbursements
  • Job rotation
  • Imprest funds
  • Internal and external audits
  • Bank reconciliations
petty cash fund
Petty cash fund
  • Known as imprest (advanced) fund
  • Establish fund with set amount
  • Debit “Petty Cash” when fund set up
  • Subsequent entries debit various expenses and credit “Cash”
  • Shortages debited to “Cash Over and Short,” treated as misc. expense
bank reconciliation
Bank reconciliation
  • Prepared when statements received
  • Start with “balance per bank” and “balance per books”
  • Bring both numbers to “corrected cash” or “true cash”
  • Adjust books for items on “books” side of reconciliation
typical items on bank side of reconciliation

Trade Receivables
  • Result from sales of goods or services on account
  • Balance Sheet Measurement:
    • Net Realizable Value
  • Discounts
    • Trade Discounts
    • Cash Discounts

Net Realizable Value
  • Amount expected to be realized (collected)
  • Gross Accounts Receivable, net of
    • Expected returns & Allowances

bad debts
BAD DEBTS

If you do business on credit,

the question is not “whether”

but “how much”

Some people cannot or will not pay their bills

You know that they are out there

You just don’t know who they are

valuation of accounts receivable or estimating bad debt expense

Two methods will be examined:

1. The percentage of sales method

(also known as the income

statement method)

2. The percentage of receivables

method (also known as the balance

sheet method)

percentage of sales method
Percentage of sales method
  • An income statement approach
  • The more you sell--the more you can expect to lose
  • Consistent with matching principle
  • Select a percentage based on past experience or industry averages
  • Multiply the percentage by total credit sales
percentage of sales method33
Percentage of sales method
  • Assume $1,000,000 sales and 3% estimated bad debts

Bad Debt Expense 30,000

Allow. for Bad Debts 30,000

percentage of receivables
Percentage of receivables
  • Based on “aging” the individual accounts receivable
  • The later they are in paying--the less likely they are to pay up
  • Percentages likely to default are assigned to each age category
  • The result is the balance needed in the “Allowance for Bad Debts” account
assume that an aging schedule yields the following information
Assume that an aging schedule yields the following information:

30-60 days overdue 40,000 5 2,000

60-90 days overdue 30,000 10 3,000

90-180 days overdue 30,000 25 7,500

Over 180 days 10,000 30 3,000

Totals $180,000 $15,500

the 15 500 is the total amount needed in the allowance account
Allowance for Bad DebtsThe $15,500 is the total amount needed in the “Allowance” account
  • Assume that the “Allowance for Bad Debts” account has a $3,000 credit balance prior to adjustment

3,000

the 15 500 is the total amount needed in the allowance account37
The $15,500 is the total amount needed in the “Allowance” account
  • To go from a $3,000 credit to a $15,500 credit will require a $12,500 credit

3,000

12,500

15,500

12 500 is the amount needed to adjust the allowance account
$12,500 is the amount needed to adjust the “Allowance” account
  • The necessary entry is:

Bad Debt Expense 12,500

Allow. for Bad Debts 12,500

account write offs do not reduce total assets
Account write-offs do not reduce total assets !
  • Assume $10,000 of Accts. Receivable and a $1,000 Allowance for Bad Debts
  • Net collectible receivables are $9,000

Accounts receivable $10,000

Less: AFBD 1,000

Net receivables $ 9,000

Now assume we write off a $100 account
  • The entry to write off the account is
  • Allowance for Bad Debts 100
  • Account Receivable 100

Now assume we write off a $100 account
  • The entry to write off the account is

Chapter 8--Learning Objectives
  • 3. Demonstrate how accounts receivable are used as the basis for financing
receivables can be used as an immediate source of cash
Receivables can be used as an immediate source of cash
  • Assigning accounts receivable means using them as collateral for a loan
  • Factoring accounts receivable means selling them
  • Factoring can be with recourse or without recourse
  • Recourse refers to ultimate responsibility for payment
factoring with recourse
Factoring with recourse

When accounts are factored with recourse, uncollectible accounts are absorbed by the transferor

Transaction is treated as a sale if all of the following conditions are met:

1. Risks, rewards & benefits are transferred

2. Future cash flows are estimable at time of transfer

3. Transferee cannot require transferor to repurchase receivables except under recourse provisions

factoring with recourse as a borrowing
Factoring with recourseas a borrowing
  • If all conditions for treatment as a sale are not meant, factoring with recourse is treated as a borrowing

  • Effective interest rate is assigned to note
  • Determine whether fair market value (FMV) of assets surrendered is known or unknown
  • If FMV is known, use as present value of note
  • If FMV not known, use current rate for borrower or rate on other similar loans

  • Discount rate for note is 12 percent ($7,120 is the present value of $10,000 to be received in 3 years at 12 percent)

formulas for discounting notes receivable
Formulas for discounting notes receivable

Interest (I) = P x R x T

P = Principal

R = Interest Rate

T = Time

Maturity Value (MV) = P + I

Discount = MV x DR x DP

DR = Discount Rate

DP = Discount Period

Proceeds = MV - Discount

discounting note receivable assumptions
Discounting note receivable assumptions
  • $1,000, six month note dated 3-1-95
  • Face interest rate 10 percent
  • Discounted on 7-1-95
  • Discount rate 12 percent
  • Time to maturity (discount period) is two months
  • Discounted without recourse
discount calculations
Discount calculations
  • Interest = $1,000 x .10 x 6/12 = $50
  • Maturity Value = $1,000 + $50 = $1,050
  • Discount = $1,050 x .12 x 2/12 = $21
  • Proceeds = $1,050 - $21 = $1,029
  • Note value at discount date
  • Interest = $1,000 x .10 x 4/12 = $33
  • Value = $1,000 + $33 = $1,033

  • The bad news here is that if the original maker of the note defaults when the note is due...
  • The bank or finance company will hold the party discounting the note responsible for payment
