Staff Accounting Bulletin 108 provides guidance for correcting financial statement misstatements. The SAB discusses the consideration of prior year’s misstatements when quantifying misstatements in the current year’s financial statements. In this SAB, the SEC identified two methods to quantify current-year misstatements: the rollover approach and the iron curtain approach. The rollover approach quantifies a misstatement using the amount of error in the current year’s income statement. This approach can result in accumulation of significant misstatements on the balance sheet that are deemed immaterial because the amount each year is relatively small. On this other hand, the iron curtain approach quantifies a misstatement based on the effects of correcting the misstatement existing in the balance sheet at the end of the current year. However, this approach does not consider the correction of prior year misstatements in the current year. Through SAB 108, the SEC requires registrants to quantify misstatements using both approaches. If either method results in a material error, the financial statements must be adjusted. This SAB relates to materiality because prior to SAB 108, an error may have been immaterial in relation to the balance sheet, while it may have been material to the current year income statement. SAB 108 standardized the methods used to determine materiality for a prior year misstatement. SAB 99 expressed the SEC’s views that materiality must be decided on both quantitatively and qualitatively, and SAB 108 further described the methods that were to be used to decide if a misstatement was…...

Summary of Sab 108

...Name: Tran Van Accounting 4022-Fall 2012 Homework 17 Due Date: November 7, 2012 Summary of SAB 108: On September 13, 2006, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) issued Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 108, Considering the Effects of Prior Year Misstatements when Quantifying Misstatements in Current Year Financial Statements. The most two commonly methods used in practice to accumulate and quantify misstatements in current years which resulted from prior year misstatements are the “rollover” and “iron curtain” approaches: 1/ The rollover approach, quantifies the amount of errors originating from current-year income statement. This method ignores the effects of correcting the portion of the current-year balance sheet misstatement that originated in prior years. Thus, the errors on the balance sheet can significantly accumulate over time. 2/ The iron curtain approach, quantifies the cumulative amount of misstatement existing in the balance sheet at the end of the current year to determine materiality. This method ignores the effect of correction of prior year misstatements in the current year income statement. A misstatement in the current year income statement is not considered as an error. The staff does not believe the exclusive reliance on either the rollover or iron curtain approach appropriately quantifies all misstatements that could be material to users of financial statements. They believe that registrants must quantify misstatements using both the......

...SAB 104’s main topic is regarding revenue recognition and the various conditions that need to be fulfilled. This includes, persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, delivery has occurred and services rendered, seller’s price is fixed/determinable, and collectability is reasonably assured. SAB104 also goes into frequent questions one may have about the conditions in which revenues are required. Persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists: When products are passed on to a 3rd party seller ( consignment arrangement) or distributed other wise, it does not qualify for revenue recognition. Only when the risk and rewards and ownership of a product is passed on to another party has a sale occurred. Even if the title changes hands, some factors need to be taken into account to consider revenue recognition. * When seller has the right to return items * When the seller has to repurchase products due to fluctuations in the environment, and seller is responsible for all fluctuations in cost incurred by the buyer. * When other countries don’t require the company to hand over title until payment has been received. * This is like consignment, so no revenue cannot be recognized till received. Delivery has occurred: * Risk has to have been passed on * Written documentation to prove commitment to purchase goods * Buyer requests bill and hold basis * Date of delivery must be consistent with the businesses purpose * Ordered goods are segregated...

...SABMiller. This has become a huge threat for SABMiller; but it does also hold opportunities to weaken this threat down. For example the company has the opportunity to acquire more stakes in the Brazilian Market; or become the owner of China resources which is the largest brewer in China. Both these markets I have mentioned are matured yet and still hold many growing estimates. After conducting a stakeholder analysis; I have come up with simple assessments that SABMiller had to make some strategic choices to please its key players. SAB's acquisition of Miller was largely due to the pressure from the London Stock Exchange. It is felt that SAB was at risk due to it's over reliance of soft currencies in certain market. This resulted in a poor performance in the London Stock Exchange in the year of 2000. Even though their core competences were elsewhere, SAB went on with the takeover to please the stakeholders. Media and analysts have come out with unfavourable reports on SABMiller. These particular stakeholders needed to be pleased. From my BCG Matrix; its conclusive that its' Western European operations are a 'dog' and SABMiller should ideally get out of the market as further investment will end up little positive results. But this won't be possible due to the investors' expectations of a market presence in Western Europe. Internal Analysis: SABMiller's Core Competences: Core Competences are the skills and abilities by which Resources are deployed through an Organisation's......

Difference Between Frs 14 and Frs 108

...Overview The newly implemented FRS 108 requires identification of operating segments on the basis of internal reports that are regularly reviewed by the entity’s chief operating decision maker in order to allocate resources to the segment and assess its performance. On the other hand, the old FRS 14 requires companies to identify two sets of segments which are primary and secondary segments. One is based on related products and services (Business Segmentation), and the other on geographical areas (Geographical Segmentation). In addition, according to FRS 108, companies have to disclose further information such as major customers whom contributed more than 10% of the Group’s revenue. Company Overview As such, the two companies that we have chosen to analyze the addition costs and benefits by the implementation of FRS 108 are Aztech Group Limited (Aztech) as well as Singapore Telecommunications Limited (SingTel). Aztech is incorporated in 1986 and is subsequently listed on the Main Board of the Singapore Stock Exchange. Aztech being a dynamic international group with key activities in Electronics Design & Manufacturing, Materials Supply and Marine Logistics is operating in six countries over three continents. On the other hand, SingTel which is the largest listed company on the Singapore Exchange by market capitalisation is listed on the Singapore Exchange (SGX) in November 1993. SingTel is a leading telecommunication company which offers a wide range of services such as......

...BEER FOR ALL: SABMiller in Mozambique MGMT 205: International Business Discuss the local conditions that make SAB Miller’s traditional model unsuitable for Mozambique. SABMiller’s traditional model was based on repeating well-known processes worldwide and was heavily reliant on global supply chains. This approach proved to be the most suitable option for entering and operating in rich countries, where SAB Miller could benefit from short and cost-efficient supply chains. Furthermore, the high demand of commercially brewed beer, which was globally based on malted barley and hops, allowed them to pursue a mass-production strategy. In Mozambique on the other hand, the demand for commercially brewed beer was, with an average per capita consumption of 8 liters per year, very slim. Yet, there was a huge market that wanted to drink beer but could not afford to because many people in Mozambique were living in poverty. That is why the price was their major decision criterion when it came to buying alcoholic beverages. As a result SABMiller´s potential low-income customers would rather satisfy their needs with considerably less costly homebrewed beer or even dangerous alcohol from the unregulated and untaxed illicit alcohol market, than with SABMiller´s relatively expensive commercial beer. In order to offer a legal alternative, the brewery had to cut costs even more. Therefore the brewery had to start using locally grown cassava as a new raw material, as it was very costly......

Sab 101 Explained

...DISCUSSION OF SAB 101 Q & A Definition of Revenue (FASB Concepts Statement No. 6): Inflows or other enhancements of assets of an entity or settlements of its liabilities (or a combination of both) from delivery or producing goods, rendering services, or other activities that constitute the entity’s ongoing major or central operations. Separate definition for Gains Guidelines for Revenue Recognition The revenue recognition principle (FASB Concept Stmt. No. 5) provides that companies should recognize revenue 1) when it is realized or realizable and 2) when it is earned. Revenues are realized when goods and services are exchanged for cash or claims to cash (receivables). Revenues are realizable when assets received in exchange are readily convertible to known amounts of cash or claims to cash. Revenues are earned when the entity has substantially accomplished what it must do to be entitled to the benefits represented by the revenues, that is, when the earnings process is complete or virtually complete. Revenue Recognition Issues Usually revenue is recognized at the point of sale because most of the uncertainties related to the earning process are removed and the exchange price is known. But, the earning process itself is not defined precisely anywhere in the authoritative literature. More importantly, an entity's earnings process(es) is (are) determined by its business model(s) and the number of business models can grow...

...Group 4 Acct 495-01 Case 11-6 Lessee Ltd. Lessee Ltd. (a British company that applies IFRSs) and Lessor Inc. had a lease agreement starting on January 1, 2007 which Lessee Ltd. rents equipment from Lessor Inc. for three years. The remaining useful life of the equipment is four years. The fair value of the equipment is $265,000. At the end of the lease term, Lessee Ltd. has guaranteed $20,000 as the residual value. The agreement contains no purchase or renewal options, which means at the end of the lease term, Lessee Ltd. needs to return this equipment to Lessor Inc. in original condition. According to the agreement, Lessee Ltd. needs to make lease payments of $100,000 to Lessor Inc. each year. Also, Lessee Ltd. is responsible for other expenses like insurance, tax and maintenance that cost $2,000 per year. The lessee’s incremental borrowing rate is 11% and Lessor’s implicit rate is 10%. Two accountants of Lessee Ltd. analyzed the assets of the lease. For the present value of lease obligation, if using the implicit rate in the lease (10%), the residual value would be $15,026 and the present value of annual payment would be $248,690. If using the incremental borrowing rate (11%), the residual value would be $14,624 and present value of annual payment would be $244,370. But on the computations of lease payments, the junior and senior accountant used two different ways. The junior accountant defined it is an operating lease and simply added lease expense and insurance......

...prices established in advance are commonly available, and revenues may be recognized as earned as time passes." The staff believes that revenue generally is realized or realizable and earned when all of the following criteria are met: • Persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, • Delivery has occurred or services have been rendered, • The seller's price to the buyer is fixed or determinable, • Collectability is reasonably assured. Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 101 (SAB 101), “Revenue Recognition in Financial Statements” summarizes the staff’s beliefs regarding the application of generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) to revenue recognition in the financial statements (Securities and Exchange, 1999). Specifically AIA 2-3 relates SAB 101 to Wal-Mart stores and its recognition of revenues due to layaway contracts. Before the issuance of SAB 101, Wal-Mart was recording the revenue from layaway contracts and membership fees at the point of sale and time of receipt, respectively. SAB 101 caused retailers such as Wal-Mart to adhere more closely to basic accounting principles while recording layaway transactions and the collection of membership fees, resulting in increased comparability amongst competitors. During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2000, the Company adopted changes in its method of accounting for membership revenue recognition. This change was made in response to the issuance of the Securities and Exchange Commission Staff Accounting Bulletin No......
