Current Liabilities and
(Appendix C at end of text)
Time Value of Money
PART A: CURRENT LIABILITIES
1) Probable future sacrifices of economic benefits
2) Arising from present obligations to other entities
3) As a result of past transactions or events
Current liabilities are short-term obligations that will be paid within the current operating
cycle or one year, whichever is longer (normally one year). Current liabilities are recorded at
face value because the time to maturity is short.
Non-current liabilities include all other liabilities that are not current liabilities. Non-current
liabilities are recorded at their cash equivalent amount (present value).
Cash equivalent- (the cash amount that the creditor would accept to settle the liability today)
-Does not include interest until interest is accrued
Order of Liabilities on Balance Sheet
-Current Liabilities go first, then
-Long term (non-current) Liabilities
-Evidenced by a contract
Interest Calculation (Revisited)
P = Principal (FACE Value) is the amount borrowed
R = Annual interest rate
T = length of time the money was used this accounting period (fraction of year).
Chapter 8 Fall 2011 Page 8-1
Accrued interest—(interest incurred; earned but not paid/received yet)
-current liability (if payments are made periodically and interest is due within the year)
-non-current liability (if interest is added to the liability and the liability is non-current)
On December 1, Casino Cruise Lines borrows $1,000,000 from Bank of America signing a 6
month, 5% (simple interest) note. Principal and interest is payable at maturity.

How would Casino Cruise Lines treat the note on their Balance Sheet?
What affect does the note have on Casino Cruise Line’s Income Statement?
Record the entry for Casino Cruise Lines on May 31 when the note matures:
Line of Credit—an arrangement with a lending institution that allows the company to
continuously borrow up to prearranged limit.
Commercial Paper—when a company borrows from another company, the note is referred as
commercial paper; usually matures from 30 – 270 days.
Accounts Payable (A/P) trade accounts payable—arise through the normal course of business
(purchase inventory, goods or services on credit)
PAYROLL LIABILITIES—examples include: salaries and wages, taxes, and fringe benefits.
Federal Income taxes—amount withheld depends on income and exemptions
Chapter 8 Fall 2011 Page 8-2
--Social security: 6.2% up to a maximum amount (increases each year)
FUTA/SUTA (Federal/State Unemployment taxes—only employer pays)
-assessed on the first $7,000 of earnings per employee
-Health/Dental/Vision insurance premiums
-Life insurance premiums

Current Portion of Long-Term Debt
-the principal amount of the debt coming due within a year of the balance sheet date
United Supply has a $25 million liability at December 31, 20C, of which $5 million of the
principal is payable in each of the next five years. How should the liability be shown on the
balance sheet at December 31, 20C?
What about interest on the loan?
PART B: LOSS CONTINGENCIES AND ANALYSIS
Loss Contingency-an existing uncertain situation that might result in a loss
A contingent liability is a “potential” liability that has arisen from a past event or transaction.
-contingent liabilities are reported on the financial statements if they are probable and the
liability can be estimated.
-contingent liabilities are disclosed in the notes if they are probable and cannot be estimated;
OR if they are reasonably possible (regardless if they can be estimated or not).
Estimable Within a Range
-use the more likely amount
-no “more likely amount” use lower loss amount and disclose the potential additional loss.
Chapter 8 Fall 2011 Page 8-4
Product Warranties and Guarantees (estimated liability)
Warranty liabilityWarranty expense (based on estimated amounts)—matching principle
-current liability if warranty period is for a year or less
-noncurrent liability if warranty period is more than a year.
Premiums or Coupons (estimate amount that will be redeemed)
-not recorded until gain is certain
Working Capital = CA - CL
Current Ratio = CA/CL
Acid-test Ratio aka Quick Ratio = (Cash + Current investments +A/R)/CL
--does not include inventory or prepaid-assets
--uses assets that can be easily converted to cash

2. The dollar is earning a positive return
Simple interest: P x R x T
PV and FV Tables (Located on last pages of textbook) & included herewith on pages 8-9, 8-10
(or BAII Plus Financial Calculator)
Future Value of a Single Amount (FV$1)
Equation: (1 + i)n
Where i is the interest rate and n is the number of compounding periods.
Present Value of a Single Amount (PV$1)
Equation: 1/(1 + i)n [the is the reciprocal of (FV$1)]
Future Value of an Ordinary Annuity (FVA)
Equation: (1+i)n – 1
Present Value of an Ordinary Annuity (PVA)
Equation: 1 – (1/(1 + i)n )
Interest rates are stated in annual terms (one year, 12 months, 365 days…sometimes 360 days)
Chapter 8 Fall 2011 Page 8-6
If compounding occurs more than once a year, the interest rate i needs to be adjusted to reflect
the number of compounding periods in a year. And “n” needs to reflect the total number of
An investment pays 12% interest annually for 5 years: (12%, 5n)
An investment pays 12% interest semiannually for 5 years: (6%, 10n) interest is cut in half,
compounding periods are doubled.
An investment pays 12% interest quarterly for 5 years: (3%, 20n) interest is cut in fourth,
compounding periods are quadrupled.
ACCOUNTING APPLICATIONS OF FUTURE AND PRESENT VALUES
Use PV and FV Tables (Located on last pages in text or pages 8-9 and 8-10) or BAII Plus
1. Type of cash flow: Single sum or Annuity (Payment)
2. Present Value or Future Value
3. Number of compounding periods (n)
4. Interest rate (i)
For BAII Plus:
Set P/Y to 1 by pressing the 2ND key and then the (I/Y) key. Type in 1 and press enter. Then
press the 2ND key and then the CPT key.
N = number of compounding periods
I/Y = interest rate
PV = present value
PMT = annuity cash flow (payment)
FV = Future Value
CPT = compute key
To quit/clear, press 2ND then CPT and then 2ND then FV. (Note: turning off the calculator will
not clear the TVM items).
