Characteristics of a Corporation

1. Separate legal entity – A corporation is an artificial being with a personality separate from that of its individual owners.

2. Created by operation of law – A corporation is generally created by operation of law. The mere agreement of the parties cannot give rise to a corporation.

4. Powers, attributes, properties expressly authorized by law – Being a creation of law, a corporation can only exercise powers provided by law and powers which are incidental to its existence.

5. Ownership divided into shares – Proprietorship in a corporation is divided into units known as shares of stocks.

6. Board of Directors (BOD) – Management of the business is vested in a board of directors elected by the stockholders. The BOD is the governing body or decision-making body of the corporation.

Picking Professors to be in his class + I have some old tests that you could really USE :) As for Mr. MERCADO, very funny prof. MODERATE QUIZZES. Okay when it comes to teaching. I was never in his class but I have heard from a lot of people that he's funny talaga and he's worth taking as well. Good grades too if you are fond of studying ;) Also, he adjusts depending on the highest grade in your class. As for Ms. Clerigo, sure pass prof. Not that "maarte" when it comes to folder/business case. Gives away powerpoints. If you want an easy prof, go for her. But she's not really for BSA Majors because she is quite boring and she doesn't teach that good as what I have heard. But when it comes to grades, I think she's lenient and she's nice + approachable. ACTPACO - Mr. Gonzales / Mr. Menaje / Ms. Baluran / Ms. Velasco -Same comment for Mr. Menaje and Ms. Velasco. As for Ms. Baluran, she's motherly but you need to do some self-studying. She's nice and a sure pass prof if you will let her feel that you want to listen to her. Quizzes are rather hard but she's really considerate. As for Mr. Gonzales, a cool prof (the fact na mohawk pa ang hair niya). Quizzes are rather hard and tricky but he teaches really well. Possible maka-4.0 if you understand fully what he is teaching but you really need to be careful when answering his quizzes. Also, he's considerate & fun. Adjusts grades too (depending on the highest grade among the people in his class). ACTMANA - Mr. Magcale / Mr. Quijano -Same comment......

Actpaco Business Case

...ACTPACO INDIVIDUAL BUSINESS CASE 1T AY 2013-14 Reference: Accounting 2nd edition. Waren,C., Reeve, J.,and Duchac, J. ( with slight modifications) Case 1. Partnership agreement Jose Reyes, M.D. and Joseph Luke, M.D. are sole owners of two medical practices that operate in the same medical building. The two doctors agree to combine assets and liabilities of the two businesses to form a partnership. The partnership agreement calls for dividing income equally between the two doctors. After several months, the following conversation takes place between the two doctors: Reyes: I have noticed that your patient load has dropped over the last couple of months. When we formed our partnership, we were seeing about the same number of patients per week. However, now our patient records show that you have been seeing about half as many patients as I have. Are there any issued I should be aware of? Luke: I see. Well, I find that I am working as hard as I did when I was on my own, yet making less that I did previously. Essentially, you are sharing in half of my billings and I am sharing in half of yours. Since you are working much less than I am, I end up on the short end of the bargain. Reyes: Well, I don’t know what to say. An agreement is an agreement. The partnership is based on a 50/50 split. That’s what a partnership is all about. Luke: I that is so, then it applies equally well on the effort end of the equation as on the income end. Answer...
