CHAPTER 6: ACCOUNTING FOR GENERAL LONG-TERM LIABILITIES AND DEBT SERVICE Answers to Questions 6-1. General long-term liabilities are those that are incurred by activities financed by the General Fund or some other governmental fund. These liabilities are distinguished from “fund” long-term liabilities that are incurred by a proprietary or fiduciary fund and for which debt service will be paid from that fund. General long-term liabilities are reported only in the Governmental Activities column of the government-wide financial statements and not in any fund. 6-2. As shown in Illustration 6-1 for the City and County of Denver, note disclosures about long-term debt (such as bonds, notes, and capital leases) and other long-term liabilities (such as claims and judgments, compensated absences, and other accrued liabilities) should show the beginning balance of each major class of long-term liability and additions to, deletions from, and the ending balance of each major class. These disclosures should present separate sections for governmental activities and business-type activities. Presenting long-term liability disclosures for discretely presented component units, as the City and County of Denver has done, is discretionary and is a matter of professional judgment.
