Yes No Yes No Likely Likely A provision: provision: Accrue & Notes * Accrue Notes A contingent liability: Notes* Not Likely A contingent liability: contingent No Disclosure No A contingent liability: No Disclosure Not Determinable A contingent liability: Notes* Notes* A contingent liability: Notes* * Appropriate detail regarding the nature of the provisions and uncertainties Appropriate should be disclosed. Measurement of Provisions Measurement of Provisions Provision relating to Methodology Large number of items Expected value method—assess all outcomes and assign probabilities to each outcome. Large number of items with a continuous range of possible outcomes, each as likely as the other Use the midpoint of the range Single item Use the most likely outcome but take into account the probability of possible outcomes to refine if the information is available. Example of Provision Example of Provision Garaway Limited produces machines that are used in large institutions to make soft ice cream. All sales are accompanied by a one-year warranty, under which the company will fix the machine (on-site) or replace it. At year end, the accounting staff is looking to estimate the warranty provision and have the following historical data: • 1,000 units were sold during the year. • Over the past five years, 3% of the machines were defective in some way and had to be fixed. • Of the above-noted 3%, half required a full replacement of the equipment at a cost of $5,000 per unit and half were fixable at an average cost of $500. Garaway feels that the data are indicative of the current situation. In addition, the company is concerned about a potential liability relating to a recent lawsuit. The company’s lawyers estimate that it is likely that it will lose the lawsuit and have to pay $100,000. Example of Provision Example of Provision For the warranty costs (since there are multiple items and the likelihood of outcomes are different), a provision of $82,500 will be recognized. (1,000*3%*50%*$5,000)+(1,000*3%*50%*$500)=$82,500 For the lawsuit (since this is a single item and this is the most likely outcome), a provision of $100,000 will be recognized. Dr. Lawsuit Loss Cr.
