Chapter 6 of the textbook is titled ‘Accounting and the Time Value of Money’ and
introduces the concepts of the time value of money and how to apply such concepts to
the accounting.
The Time value of money is an important topic in the finance field and I think most of you
have learned these concepts from a basic finance class. Please take look at Chapter 6 of
the textbook to make sure that you fully understand the concepts of the time value of
In particular, I want you to double check yourself whether you understand and are able to
calculate the present value of a single sum (future money), the present value of an ordinary
annuity, the present value of an annuity due.
Once you computed the present value, the difference between the present value and the
future value is recorded as ‘Discount to Present Value’. Discount to Present Value’ need to
be amortized over the discount period using the so-called ‘the effective interest rate
method’. I cannot over-emphasize the importance of knowing how to amortize ‘Discount
to Present Value’ over the discount period using the effective interest method in accounting
for such areas as corporate bons payable, lease transactions, investments in debt securities
and many other transactions with a long-term payment term.
Once you complete your self-study of Chapter 6, solve the following exercises in the
textbook as the first homework of this semester.
