13-2 The audit of plant and equipment would probably require less time than the audit of current assets because: (1) Transactions in plant and equipment are usually of substantial dollar amount, and relatively few transactions may account for the $5,000,000 balance of plant and equipment. (2) There is often little change in the property accounts from year to year. (3) Errors in year-end cutoff of plant assets transactions do not usually affect net income as do cutoff errors in inventory. 13-7 Yes. Failure to record the retirement of machinery can affect net income. The machines will continue to be depreciated if not already fully depreciated, and any loss on the retirement will be omitted from the income statement. 13-9 In the first audit of a company for which other independent public accountants have previously made satisfactory audits, the auditors normally may limit their work on the beginning balances of plant and equipment to a general review of past transactions in plant assets. In the first audit of a concern that has not been previously audited by independent public accountants, the auditors must make a complete historical analysis of the property account. Only by such an approach can the costs and depreciation charges shown by the records be verified.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
