Thus, R&D help improve business performance. Slide 3How companies in US and the world are investing in R&D?

Slide 4: Both US GAAP and IFRS recognize the importance of appropriate accounting treatment for R&D activities but take a different viewpoint on the method should be used. It’s clear that if future economic benefit gonna flow into the entity as the result of R&D activities. These cost should be classified as asset rather than expense. But whether future economic benefit are certain to flow into entity are impossible to predict. Thus the difference between GAAP and IFRS arise Slide 5: Talk about how US GAAP account for R&D cost.

...earnings (impacting both the company and shareholders) arises when the company has a greater number of shares outstanding. To keep ahead of this possibility, earnings must increase at a rate equal to the rate at which outstanding shares increase. Otherwise, the company must repurchase shares on the open market to reduce the number of outstanding shares. One benefit to offering stock options is a company's ability to take a tax deduction for compensation expense when it issues shares to employees who are exercising their options. Another benefit to offering options is that while they could be considered a portion of compensation, current accounting methods do not require businesses to show options as an expense on their books. This tends to inflate the value of a company. Companies should think carefully about this as a benefit, however. If accounting rules were to become more conservative, corporate earnings could be impacted as a result. Cash While incentive program participants often state that they prefer cash to non-cash rewards, research has shown that cash is a poor motivator due to its lack of "trophy value." In a recent study conducted by the Center for Concept Development, three of five respondents agree that a cash payment is perceived to be part of an employee’s total compensation package and not as part of an incentive program. Additionally, cash is quickly forgotten as many participants tend to spend it on everyday items or use it to pay bills. Given that......

Accounting and Communication: Final Project

...Accounting and Communication: Final Project I plan on graduating from Temple with a bachelors in science in Accounting. Afterward, I desire to enroll in Graduate school at Temple University to complete my Masters degree. Hoping I will be skilled enough (CPA test preparatory classes may be necessary) to pass the CPA (Certified Public Accountants) exam, I intend to apply to a private accounting firm. In order for an Accountant to internally do their job correct, they need to ensure that firms are efficiently run financially while also making business decisions that would lead to prevented loss/future profit. They prepare, analyze and verify financial documents that are recorded in an accounting journal, balance sheet, income statement, statement of cash flows and shareholders’ equity. Externally, an Accountant could be employed by a public corporation and sent out to off-premise locations to perform audits. The duties of an accountant depend on whether they are a private or public accountant and which department they work in. Public accounting for the most part has to do with auditing, taxation, and external duties. Private accountants are more internal and deal with budgeting, inventory, cost accounting and internal auditing. In 2009, the median annual wage for accountants and auditors was $60,340, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Personally, I like the internal work that has to do with financial accounting, not managerial accounting. I’m more of a numbers type......
