Running head: EMERGING ISSUES Assignment #2 Emerging Issues Task Force Accounting 557: Financial Accounting Abstract In 1982, the Financial Accounting Foundation Structure Committee produced a report on operating efficiency that indicated a need for more timely guidance on implementation questions. That report resulted in the formation of an advisory group, which evolved into the Emerging Issues Task Force (EITF). This task force was established to assist the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) in improving financial reporting through the timely identification, discussion, and resolution of financial accounting issues. (FASB, 2011) This paper discusses and explores the EITF in greater detail. Discussion Question 1 Discuss how the Emerging Issues Task Force influences Generally Accepted Accounting Standards.

Assume first that the Bernoulli will be introduced, with its new cost structure, one year from now, and then calculate a cost forecast assuming that the $18 million is not provided for development of the new product. 3. Using the information developed for Questions 1 and 2, develop a discounted cash flow analysis for the Bernoulli division for 2004 through 2009.

The Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) started in 1973 to provide standards for private sector companies to prepare their financial statements. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) recognizes the standards given by the FASB as authoritative as long as the FASB fully acts in public interest. FASB standards are used by companies in the United States and IASB standards are used for companies in other areas of the world (Schroeder, Clark, & Cathey, 2011). The International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) was formed in 2001 to promote the use of international accounting standards. The IASB was formed to replace the IASC.

An inventory rollback is typically performed when the inventory audit occurs after the year-end date. The rollback procedures will remove the effects of inventory transactions, such as purchases and cost of goods sold, to obtain a correct balance of inventory at the year-end date. The outcome yielded by this audit procedure is reliable enough to validate the inventory balance recorded on the client’s book. If the value obtained after the rollback procedures differ from the inventory balance recorded on the client’s books, the auditors can immediately see a discrepancy and apply all other substantive procedures to reason out the mismatch. 4.

But in the reality, tax administration can't detect all the mistakes or the omissions and
