Ex. 18-121— Revenue recognition (essay).
The revenue recognition principle provides that revenue is recognized when (1) it is realized or realizable and (2) it is earned.
Explain when revenues are (a) realized, (b) realizable, and (c) earned.
(a) Revenues are realized when goods or services are exchanged for cash or claims to cash (receivables).
(b) Revenues are realizable when assets received in exchange are readily convertible to known amounts of cash or claims to cash.
(c) Revenues are earned when the earnings process is complete or virtually complete.
Ex. 18-122—Revenue recognition (essay).
The earning of revenue by a business is recognized for accounting purposes when the transaction is recorded. Revenue is often recognized at time of sale.
At what times, other than at time of sale, may it be appropriate to recognize revenue? Explain and justify each of these times.
Revenue is also recognized (1) during production, (2) at completion, and (3) at collection.
(1) During production. The most common situation is the use of the percentage-of-completion method for long-term construction contracts. The point of sale is much less significant than production activity. If the contractor can expect to perform the contractual obligation, the revenue is assured by the contract. To defer recognition until completion of the entire contract misrepresents the efforts (costs) and accomplishments (revenues) of the interim periods. If progress toward completion can be estimated with reasonable accuracy, the percentage-of-completion method should be used.
(2) At completion. Examples of revenue recognition at completion of production involve precious metals and agricultural products with quoted prices. These sales prices are reasonably assured, there are low additional costs of distribution, and unit costs cannot be determined because of joint costs.
(3) At collection. When collection is highly uncertain and there is no reasonably objective basis for estimating the degree of collectibility, revenue should not be recognized until cash is received. In addition, if collection costs and bad debts are expected to be high and their amount cannot be reasonably estimated, revenue recognition should be deferred.
Ex. 18-123—Long-term construction contracts (essay).
In accounting for long-term construction contracts (those taking longer than one year to complete), the two methods commonly followed are percentage-of-completion and completed-contract.
(a) Discuss how earnings on long-term construction contracts are recognized and computed under these two methods.
(b) Under what circumstances should one method be used over the other?
(c) How are job costs and interim billings reflected on the balance sheet under the percentage-of-completion method and the completed-contract method?
(a) The revenue recognized on a long-term construction contract under the percentage-of-completion method is determined by applying a percentage representing the degree of completion to the total contract price at the end of the accounting period. The percentage may be derived by dividing the costs incurred to date by the total estimated costs of the entire contract based on the most recent information. The revenue so derived is then reduced by the direct contract costs to determine the gross profit recognized in the initial period.
In subsequent periods, since the percentage-of-completion method described produces cumulative results, revenue and gross profit recognized in prior periods must be subtracted to obtain current revenue and gross profit to be recognized.
Solution 18-123 (cont.)
Under the completed-contract method, no earnings are recognized until the contract is substantially completed. For the period in which completion occurs, gross revenues include the total contract price. Total job costs incurred are deducted from gross revenues, resulting in recognition of the entire amount of gross profit in the completion period. If it is expected that a loss will occur on the contract, a provision for loss should be recognized immediately under both the completed-contract method and the percentage-of-completion method.
(b) The percentage-of-completion method should be used when estimates of the bases upon which progress is measured are reasonably dependable and all the following conditions exist:
1. The contract clearly specifies the enforceable rights regarding goods or services to be provided and received by the parties, the consideration to be exchanged, and the manner and terms of settlement.
2. The buyer can be expected to satisfy all obligations under the contract.
3. The contractor can be expected to perform the contractual obligation.
The completed-contract method should be used when inherent hazards or lack of depend-able estimates cause the forecasts to be of doubtful value.
(c) Under the percentage-of-completion method, a schedule is made of the contracts in process, showing the total costs incurred as of the end of a given period, the estimated gross profit recognized based on the degree of completion, and the total billings rendered on each individual contract. If costs incurred plus recognized profits exceed the related billings on a contract, this net figure is shown as a current asset. This treatment shows that the contractor has not fully billed the customer for work performed to date and has a claim against the customer for that portion of work completed but not yet billed. If billings on a contract exceed costs incurred plus estimated profits, this net figure is shown as a current liability, which means that the contractor has overbilled the customer for work done to date and must complete the work represented by the excess billings.
Under the completed-contract method, the treatment of excess costs and billings is the same as under the percentage-of-completion method except that estimated profits are not computed because profit recognition is deferred until a contract is completed. The excess of costs over related billings on a contract is a current asset while the excess of billings over related costs on a contract is a current liability.

The cost of sales relating to the equipment is $3,438,000.
The finance charges relating to the installment period are $780,000 based on a stated interest rate of 7% which is appropriate. For tax purposes, Finley appropriately uses the accrual basis for recording finance charges.
Circumstances are such that the collection of the installment sale is reasonably assured.
The installment sale qualified for the installment method of reporting for tax purposes.
Assume that the income tax rate is 30%.
What income (loss) before income taxes should Finley appropriately record as a result of this transaction for the year ended December 31, 2013? Show supporting computations in good form.
(Note: For financial accounting purposes, the installment-sales method is not used, and the full gross profit is recognized in the year of sale, because collection of the receivable is reasonably assured.)

Pr. 18-132—Long-term construction project accounting.
Dobson Construction specializes in the construction of commercial and industrial buildings. The contractor is experienced in bidding long-term construction projects of this type, with the typical project lasting fifteen to twenty-four months. The contractor uses the percentage-of-completion method of revenue recognition since, given the characteristics of the contractor's business and contracts, it is the most appropriate method. Progress toward completion is measured on a cost to cost basis. Dobson began work on a lump-sum contract at the beginning of 2013. As bid, the statistics were as follows:
Lump-sum price (contract price) $4,000,000
Labor $ 850,000
Materials and subcontractor 1,750,000
Indirect costs 400,000 3,000,000

4. IFRS requires immediate recognition of a loss if the overall contract is going to be unprofitable.
5. Terry Company is unable to reliably estimate revenues and costs associated with its only long-term construction contract. Under IFRS, Terry Company must use the completed-contract method to account for this contract.
1. The joint project of the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) and the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) related to revenue recognition includes
I. Evaluating a “customer-consideration” model
II. Eliminating inconsistencies in the existing conceptual guidance
III. Establishing a single, comprehensive standard
