sources:
Debt - funds

Equity - funds
from owners

Learning Objectives
Report notes payable and explain the time
value of money.
9-14
Notes Payable
A note payable specifies the interest
rate associated with the borrowing.
To
the lender, interest is a revenue.
To the borrower, interest is an expense.
Interest = Principal &times; Interest Rate &times; Time
When computing interest for one
year, “Time” equals 1. When the
computation period is less than
one year, then “Time” is a fraction.

Borrowing in Foreign Currencies

When a company has operations in a foreign
country, it often borrows in the local currency.
This reduces exchange rate risk.
 Because interest rates vary from country to
country, companies may borrow in the foreign
market with the lowest interest rate.

2. Ownership of asset is transferred to lessee at endand

3. Lease permits lessee to purchase the asset at a price that is lower than its

4. The present value of the lease payments is 90% or more of the fair market
value of the asset when the lease is signed.

Learning Objectives
Compute present values.
Apply present value concepts to liabilities.

Present Value Concepts
\$1,000

today at 10%.
In 5 years it
will be worth
\$1,610.51.
In 25 years it
will be worth
\$10,834.71!
Money can grow over time,
because it can earn interest.

Present Value Concepts

4.
The growth is a mathematical
function of four variables:
The value today (present value).
The value in the future (future
value).
The interest rate.
The time period.
9-29
Present Value Concepts
Most analysts use present value
tables, calculators, or Excel to solve
time value of money problems.
We will use the present value tables in
our illustrations (an explanation of
how to use Excel is included in the
supplement to this chapter).

Accounting Applications of Present Values
On January 1, 2006, Starbucks bought some new
delivery trucks. The company signed a note
agreeing to pay \$200,000 on December 31, 2007.
The market interest rate for this note is 12%.

9-41
Income Taxes and Retirement Benefits
Deferred Taxes
Exist because of timing differences
caused by reporting revenues and
expenses according to GAAP on a
company’s income statement and
according to the Internal Revenue
Code on the tax return.
Temporary
Differences
Timing differences that cause
deferred income taxes and will
reverse, or turn around, in the
future.
9-42
Income Taxes and Retirement Benefits
Some pension plans
create obligations during
employees’ service periods
that must be paid during
their retirement periods.
The amounts contributed
during the employment
period are determined
using present value
computations of the
estimate of the future
amount to be paid during
retirement.

Tax Obligation
Determined by multiplying

Revenue and Expense Recognition for
Income Tax Purposes
1. Interest revenue on state and municipal bonds is generally
excluded from taxable income although it is included in
accounting income.
2. Revenue collected in advance is included in taxable income when
it is collected and in accounting income when it is earned.
3. Proceeds from life insurance policies are excluded from taxable
income but included in accounting income.
4. Corporations that own less than 20% of another corporation’s
stock may exclude 70% of the dividends received from taxable
income, although all dividends are included in accounting income.
5. For tax purposes, depreciation expense is generally based on the
Accelerated Cost Recovery System (ACRS) or on the Modified
Accelerated Cost Recovery System (MACRS).
