Chapter 13 HW Assignment: E13-4, 6, 7, 8, 10, 14, 15, 17, 19, 20, 21, 22; P13-4, 5, 10, 21 (1 – 12) Solutions E13-4 a. In general, San Miguel should not recognize revenue until: i. It has completed most of the activities necessary to produce and sell the goods or services, ii. It has incurred the costs associated with producing and selling the goods or services, iii. It can objectively measure the amount of revenue it has earned, and iv. It is reasonably sure that it is going to collect cash from the purchaser. In other words, revenue cannot be recognized until the company has performed those activities that earn it the right to receive payment from the buyer. Also, the amount of revenue and collectibility must be reasonably determinable. The critical point for the sale of equipment appears to be when title passes to the purchaser. At this point, San Miguel has performed those activities necessary to earn the revenue and is reasonably assured of receiving payment (otherwise they wouldn’t turn over the equipment). Payment of cash prior to or subsequent to the passage of title normally does not affect revenue recognition unless substantial uncertainty about receipt of the cash exists. b. San Miguel’s service contracts provide for service over a period of time. Therefore, service revenue should be recognized as time passes. For example, if a three-year contract is sold for $6,000, San Miguel would recognize $2,000 of service revenue during the first year of the contract. Other types of contracts might result in a different recognition process. E13-6 a.
