19 Assets Property, Plant, and Equipment (PP&E)  The relative proportion of fixed assets in a company’s asset structure will largely be determined by the nature of the business.  Manufacturing firms typically have higher percentages of fixed assets than retailers or wholesalers.  Firms with newly purchased assets will have higher percentages of fixed assets than firms with older fixed assets. 2-19

21 Assets Example – Assume that Sage Inc. purchases an artificial ski mountain for its Phoenix flagship store in order to demonstrate skis and allow prospective customers to test-run skis on a simulated course. The cost of the mountain is $50,000 and is expected to have a five-year useful life and $0 salvage value at the end of that period. 2-21

26 Liabilities Current Liabilities – Accrued Liabilities Example – Assume that a company has a $100,000 note outstanding with 12% interest due in semiannual installments on March 31 and September 30. For a balance sheet prepared on December 31, interest will be accrued for three months (October, November, and December). The December 31 balance sheet would include an accrued liability of $3,000: $100,000 x 0.12 = $12,000 annual interest $12,000/12 = $1,000 monthly interest $1,000 x 3 = $3,000 accrued interest for three months 2-26

27 Liabilities Deferred Taxes  Result of temporary differences in the recognition of revenue and expense for taxable income relative to reported income  Depreciation methods are the most common source for temporary differences. 2-27

The income for tax reporting purposes would be computed two ways, assuming a 34% tax rate: 2-28

29 Liabilities Taxes actually paid ($51,000) are less than the tax expense ($68,000) reported in the financial statements. To reconcile the $17,000 difference between the expense recorded and the cash outflow, there is a deferred tax liability of $17,000: 2-29
