Case 2:

Narda Corporation agreed to sell all of its (capital) stock to Effie Corporation for three monthly payments of $200,000.  After Effie made the first required payment, it ceased making other payments.  The stock subscription agreement states that Effie, thus, forfeits its payments and is entitled to no other future consideration.  How should Narda record the $200,000 forfeited payment?

Case 3:

Lowland Appliance Stores offers customers purchasing its appliances separately priced (extended) warranties. Lowland services these extended warranties.  Its customers can receive no refunds for not using these warranties, and, of course, Lowland must honor these contracts—regardless of any future costs in doing so.  It also “tracks” the profits and losses these types of warranties generate by appliance category—in order to help maintain a competitive price and costing structures.  How should Lowland recognize the revenues of such extended warranties?  



Problem Identification

  1. How should a company recognize revenues associated with separately priced extended warranties?
    • There is a codification that speaks to this. (See Keyword search below.)

Case 4:

As of January 1, the Lohse Company owes the First Arbor Bank $350,000 which is due on December 31. Since Lohse seems unable to repay the note, the bank agreed that Lohse can “settle” this balance by agreeing to make four, annual installments on each of the next four years, provided that it adds a “due on demand” clause to the note.  Specifically, the lender will “do its best” not to call the note “provided that no adverse significant shift in operations occurs.”  However, First Arbor Bank has the sole discretion to ascertain if these adverse conditions arose, and then to call the note due immediately.  How should Lohse account for this above situation?


Problem Identification:

  1. How should a company account for notes payable containing a “due on demand clause” and both a short- and long-term schedule of payments due?
    • Classify the obligation as current, long term, or both?
