Chapter 7 Homework Solutions LO 2 EXERCISE 7-3 COMPARISON OF THE DIRECT WRITE-OFF AND ALLOWANCE METHODS OF ACCOUNTING FOR BAD DEBTS Net income under each of the two alternatives is as follows: Direct write-off method: $145,000 – $10,500 = $134,500 Allowance method: $145,000 – (2% × $650,000) = $145,000 – $13,000 = $132,000 Conclusion: The direct write-off method would result in a lesser amount of expense and therefore in a higher net income. However, under current accounting standards, if bad debts are material in amount, the allowance method must be used. In addition, it is not acceptable for a company to choose accounting methods on the basis of their ef- fects on net income.
