...Accounting I 280 Solution to Quick Quiz State the four most common forms of business enterprises and briefly describe them.  Answer: 1. Sole Proprietorship is an unincorporated business owned by one person. 2. Partnership is an unincorporated business owned by two or more persons. 3. Corporation is a type of business organization recognized under the law as an entity separate from its owners. It provides certain legal protection for the owners against lawsuits brought against the company. They are allowed to do many of the same things any person would be able to do: own land and other property; enter into contracts; sue and be sued in court; pay taxes; conduct business, and so forth. 4. Limited Liability Company (LLC) is a type of business organization recognized under the law as an entity separate from its owners. It has features of both a Corporation and Partnership. It provides certain legal protection for the owners against lawsuits brought against the company. LLCs provide certain tax benefits to the company and the owners. The Sole Proprietorship and Partnership forms are often considered "natural" business forms, because they can be created with only the actions of the owners. The mere conduct of business by an individual creates a Sole Proprietorship automatically. Two or more individuals conducing business together automatically creates a Partnership, although that may not have been the intention of the people originally. Corporations and LLCs......

...to possible gain (gain contingency) or loss (loss contingency) to an enterprise that will ultimately be resolved when one or more future events occur or fail to occur.” Liabilities are contingent on one or more future events to confirm the potential loss, payee, date payable or even existence of the loss. FASB identifies three categories to define the likelihood of losses that include probable, reasonably possible and remote. Liabilities that are probable and can be reasonably estimated should be accrued including pending litigation. The company should disclose the information that it has about the case including the probability of a favorable outcome and similarities to other cases. Kieso, Weygandt, & Warfield. (2012). Intermediate Accounting. 14th ed. Hoboken, NJ: John, Wiley & Sons. (a) Warranty costs are expensed as incurred under the cash-basis method. The costs are charged in the period in which the seller or manufacturer complies with the warranty. No liability is recorded for the future warranty costs and charges are not recorded at the time of sale. This method is normally used when the costs are immaterial or the warranty covers a short period. The cash-basis must be used when a liability is not probable or cannot be reasonably estimated. However, if it is probable that a warranty will occur and the costs can be reasonably estimated, the accrual method must be used. The costs are charged as an expense in the year of the sale. The accrual......

These standards are important to be useful because it allows investors to make informed decisions. Financial information must be reliable, consistent and transparent. Since 1973, FASB has been part of a structure that’s independent of all other business and professional organizations. The rest of the parts are Financial Accounting Foundation (FAF), Financial Accounting Standards Advisory Council (FASAC), Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) and Governmental Accounting Standards Advisory Council (GASAC). The role of monitoring and controlling business reporting and accounting practices in a modern organization is to establish and improve standards of financial accounting. FASB has a board full of members that participate in accomplishing the mission. There are 7 board members as well as several staff members that help assist. The board members are: * Russell Golden is a chairman. He began in July of 2013. He served six years as a staff member (technical Director) for the FASB before he got appointed to the chairmen.
