Case 12.4: Surfer Dude Duds, Inc.: Considering the Going- Concern Assumption 1. What are Mark's options? Mark has several options first; he can demand that George disclose the plans about how the company is going to continue for the next year. These plans need to be disclosed in the financial statements. Next, if the going concern issue is not resolved to the satisfaction of Mark then he should ask George to give a note in the financial statements that discloses the matters that raise doubts about the going concern assumption. If the disclosures are adequate, then George should give an unqualified opinion but should add a paragraph that draws attention to the note in the financial statements. Lastly, if George refuses to make a sufficient disclosure in the financial statement, Mark has to express either a qualified or an adverse opinion. Whether it will be a qualified opinion or an adverse opinion will depend on the results of additional procedures carried out by Mark to examine the evidence relating to going concern assumptions. 2. How might a going-concern explanatory paragraph become a "self-fulfilling prophecy" for Surfer Dude?

    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.
