Percentage of Sales Method

  • amount of credit sales から貸倒引当金を決めるやり方 → bad debt expense を計算する
  • income statement approach → 信用売上高から当期の貸倒引当金繰入額を計算する
  • だから、直接 33,000 を計算する
  • 計算問題で、ending balance が credit で与えられて、written-off の金額を金額を聞かれることがある

Percentage of Receivables Method

  • the year-end receivables から貸倒引当金を決めるやり方 → ending balance を計算する
  • balance sheet approach → 期末売上債権から、期末貸倒引当金残高を計算する
  • だから、あるべき期末残高 15,000 を先に求めて、貸借差額で 33,000 が求まる
  • エイジング法は、この方式に含まれる


A company sold $150,000 of its accounts receivable without recourse.
The purchaser assessed a finance charge of 5%.

-> Whether receivables are sold with recourse or without recourse, the sold receivables need to be written off the books.

  • The transferred assets must be isolated from the transferor (the party that sells the assets).

Impairment 減損

The impairment process in U.S. GAAP is a two-step process.

  1. recoverable test
    • the carrying amount ⇔ the estimated undiscounted future cash flows
  2. The impaired asset must be written down to its fair value.

Intangible Assets 無形資産

● Leaseholds: 借地権

● Goodwill:  not a specifically identifiable intangible asset

● ASC 730, Research and Development
Research and development costs are usually expensed as they are incurred. However, if the equipment will have a use outside of the project for which it was originally purchased, the asset may be capitalizedand depreciated. When it is used in R&D projects, the depreciation expense should be recorded as R&D expense and not depreciation expense.
Costs of internal development must be expensed as incurred under U.S. GAAP.
Under IFRS, internal development expenditures are capitalized if technical and economic feasibility of a project can be demonstrated in accordance with specific criteria, including intent to complete the asset and ability to sell the asset in the future.
The costs of development must be expensed under U.S. GAAP but are capitalized under IFRS if they meet specific criteria.
Internal costs related to the research phase of research and development are expensed as incurred under both standards.

Under U.S. GAAP, research and development costs are expensed as incurred, per ASC 730-10-25-1. Development costs may not be capitalized unless they are for materials, equipment, or facilities that have alternative future uses, for R&D or otherwise, according to ASC 730-10-25-2.

IFRS does permit capitalization of development costs, but only if technical feasibility has been established. IAS 38.57, specifies that development costs may be recognized as an intangible asset if and only if an entity can demonstrate all of the following: (a) technical feasibility of completing the asset so it will be available for use or sale; (b) its intention to complete the asset and use or sell it; (c) its ability to use or sell the intangible asset; (d) how the intangible asset will generate probable future economic benefits; (e) the availability of adequate technical, financial and other resources to complete the development and to use or sell the intangible asset; (f) its ability to measure reliably the expenditure attributable to the intangible asset during its development.
