...Question 1: Case analysis There are many similarities between IFRS and pre-IFRS Canadian GAAP, however there are also significant differences. They are both similar in terms of style and the form of the individual standards because they are based on similar conceptual frameworks. The main objective of both IFRS and pre-IFRS Canadian GAAP is for financial statements to give a fair presentation. When there is a choice of accounting policies, the one that can reflect the most accurate economic portrait should be selected. Since Extract Tar Sands it traded publicly, included in its stakeholders are international investors. It’s compliance with IFRS is necessary to be a global competitor. IFRS will allow easier financial performance benchmarking amongst competing companies. This in turn will provide better access to capital. With the adoption of IFRS it will also eliminate Extract’s need to reconcile information reported under different national standards while providing consistent information for decision making purposes. The two areas with IFRS that represent the greatest change for Extract tar sands are: 1. Impairment: With IFRS impairments are usually triggered more frequently and unlike pre-IFRS Canadian GAAP, impairments under IFRS can be reversed. 2. Revaluations: Some IFRS including Property, Plant and Equipment, Investment Property and Intangibles allow the revaluation of assets under certain circumstances. This is quite a change from pre-IFRS Canadian GAAP......

...Financial Management is one of the key disciplines necessary for the successful management of business corporations and other organisations. Studying the theories underlying Financial Management practices allows students to understand and explain the financial behaviours of corporations and other organisations. An understanding of the practices of Financial Management equips students with the knowledge and understanding necessary to apply this knowledge to real-life business situations. In an organisation financial management is split into its two principal roles. These are the accounting function, usually under the direction of the financial controller, and the corporate finance function directed by the treasurer. Accounting is concerned with the provision and interpretation of information for economic decision making. Accounting is itself split between management accounting - the internal facing function - which services the information needs of the organisation’s management and financial accounting - the external facing, highly regulated, function - which provides information for investors, the general public, regulatory bodies etc. The corporate finance function is concerned with managing the finances of the organisation and is involved in cash management, asset allocation, capital structuring and financial risk management in areas such as interest rates, foreign currency exchange rates and commodity trading. The programme is structured so that students......

...ADVANCED FINANCIAL ACCOUNTING 260 IMPAIRMENT QUIZ QUESTIONS 1. When should an entity conduct an impairment test? (2 Marks) The following assets require an impairment test every year: • Intangible assets with indefinite useful lives • Intangible assets not yet available for use • Goodwill acquired in a business combination The impairment test is undertaken when there is indication that an asset may be impaired. This means that, at the end of each reporting period, an entity has to test for the probability that an asset has been impaired. An entity, therefore, has to determine after analysing certain sources of information whether there is sufficient evidence to suspect that an asset may be impaired. It is not automatically undertaken at the end of each reporting period or at the end of any set of period of time. 2. How is an impairment test undertaken? (2 Marks) The first step is to determine the fair value, costs of disposal, and value in use. Having determined the fair value less costs of disposal and the value in use, these two amounts are compared and the recoverable amount is the higher of these two amounts. The second step is then to compare the recoverable amount with the carrying amount of the asset as recorded by the entity. The second step is then to compare the recoverable amount with the carrying amount of the asset as recorded by the entity. If the recoverable amount is less than the carrying amount, an...

The impact of the financial collapse caused many Americans to lose their homes and their jobs. Across the country, mortgage delinquencies and foreclosures have hit an all-time recorded high, with 11% of loans currently two or more payments behind. Complicating matters, 24% of borrowers are “underwater,” having mortgage balances greater than the values of their homes.

P4: Difference Between Financial and Advanced Financial Management

...Paper P4 is the advanced financial MANAGEMENT paper at the Professional level. It follows on from Paper F9 at the Fundamentals level. As throughout the ACCA syllabus, the Fundamentals paper covers the main technical areas that all accountants are required to master, whereas the Professional paper builds on that knowledge and explores advanced skills and techniques. In particular Paper P4 expects candidates to have more depth of knowledge, better analytical skills, and to be able to exercise greater professional judgement than at Paper F9. Hence, instead of being asked to value a bond, a potential Paper F9 question, candidates will need to be able to recognise the need to calculate a bond value given the scenario. For instance candidates may be required to evaluate the potential gain to the shareholders of a target company, of various offers from a predator company. If one of these offers includes bonds then the value of the bonds will need to be calculated, unless of course it is given in the question. Another key distinction between Paper F9 and Paper P4 is that in general the scenarios that candidates will be faced with will refer to larger, more complex and more international organisations. A calculative example of this is the need to be able to appraise projects carried out overseas whereas a discursive example is the need to be able to discuss the role of key international organisations such as the International Monetary......

USERS AND ACCOUNTING INFORMATION PREFERENCES OF GOVERNMENT DEPARTMENT FINANCIAL REPORTS by Helen R Mignot B (Bus) A thesis submitted in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the award of Master of Business (Accounting) at the Faculty of Business Edith Cowan University Date of Submission: 05 February 1996 ACKNOWLEDGMENTS AND DEDICATION I wish to thank all those who provided me with support in completing this thesis. In particular I am grateful to my supervisor Associate Professor Colin Dolley for his care, encouragement and time; Magda Kaziniec at Curtin University School of Accounting for her vital clerical assistance; and the office staff at Edith Cowan University School of Accounting for organising necessary resources. I would also like to dedicate this work to my father Ray, and mother Rosemary (posthumously) who always told me I was capable of achieving anything, and my partner Tony King for his encouraging support. iii ABSTRACT The introduction of an accounting standard requiring government departments to replace fund-type, cash-based accounting statements with business-type, accrual based accounting statements has led to criticism that business-type, general purpose financial statements do not take account of the information requirements of major users. Such criticism echoes a long standing debate in which the users of public sector financial statements and their informational requirements are......

Google and Microsoft are two major corporations that lead Internet technology and information retrieval. Both corporations list their financial information on their respective websites ( and on their Investor Relations pages for easy access. Google Incorporated (Google) was founded in 1998 by Larry Page and Sergey Brin and was incorporated on September 04, 2008.
