Chat 6 Solutions 6-29 There can be a variety of estimates, but those suggested in the text include: (a) (b) Franklin Co. Tyler Co. Rules of Thumb: 5 percent of net income before taxes $ 80,000 $ 4,500 10 percent of net income before taxes 160,000 9,000 1/2 percent of total assets 174,500 13,500 1 percent of total assets 349,000 27,000 1/2 percent of total revenues 148,000 22,500 1 percent of total revenues 296,000 45,000 1 percent of total equity 138,000 10,000 Sliding scale illustration 193,337 48,350 If the auditors use the rule of thumb guidelines they will usually use the amounts for any rule (e.g., 5 versus 10 percent of sales) in such a manner as to function as a sliding scale in which the materiality measure increases at less than a pro-rata amount as entity size increases.
