LIFO Reserve (LIFO Effect)
 
04:07
This video discusses the LIFO Reserve, also known as the LIFO effect. Some firms keep two sets of books, using FIFO to value inventory for internal reporting (used by managers) and FIFO to value inventory for external reporting (to prepare financial statements). In periods of rising prices FIFO results in higher inventory, so these firms must record an adjusting journal entry to reduce inventory to a LIFO basis. This video provides an example to show this LIFO Reserve is recorded. Edspira is your source for business and financial education.

Defined Benefit vs. Defined Contribution Pension Plan
 
08:27
This video shows the difference between a defined-benefit pension plan and a defined-contribution plan. The core difference between these two types of plans boils down to what the employer is promising: with a defined-benefit pension plan, the employer is promising the employee a series of annuity payments after the employee retires. With the defined-contribution pension plan (e.g., a 401(k) plan), the employer is promising to make contributions to the employee's retirement account.

Net Operating Loss (Carrybacks and Carryforwards) in Financial Accounting
 
06:52
This video discusses how to account for the effects of Net Operating Losses in Financial Accounting. The IRS permits taxpayers to carry a Net Operating Loss (NOL) back two years or forward twenty years to offset taxable income. An NOL carryback allows a firm to receive a refund of taxes previously paid, whereas a carryforward allows a firm to offset future taxable income (thus, the firm recognizes a deferred tax asset). This video shows the journal entries that are used to record an NOL carryback as well as an NOL carryforward. Edspira is your source for business and financial education.

The Difference between Subsidized and Unsubsidized Student Loans
 
06:44
This video explains the difference between subsidized and unsubsidized student loans. "Subsidized" means that the U.S. government pays the interest that accrues while the student is attending school at least half-time, in a grace period, or in deferment. Unsubsidized begin incurring interest immediately, and the interest is added to the loan's balance at the end of each period assuming the student does not pay the interest. The video provides an example to illustrate how this process (known as interest capitalization) works with an unsubsidized loan. Edspira is your source for business and financial education.

Temporary vs. Permanent Tax Differences in Financial Accounting
 
07:23
This video discusses the difference between a temporary tax difference and a permanent tax difference. Tax differences arise because "book income" (income computed for financial reporting purposes, according to GAAP) is different from "tax income" (income computed for purposes of calculating the amount of corporate income tax due). Temporary tax differences reverse over time, whereas permanent tax differences never reverse. For example, the IRS allows U.S. firms to accelerate their depreciation deductions. This often results in firms front-loading the depreciation expense of an asset (taking more depreciation in the early years of the asset, and less depreciation in the later years of the asset). This difference is only temporary, however, as the same total amount of depreciation is taken for both book and tax purposes. Thus, the difference is merely one of timing, and it reverses itself over time. Permanent tax differences never reverse. An example of a permanent tax difference is the proceeds from a life insurance policy. Life insurance proceeds are not taxable so they will never appear in taxable income. Life insurance proceeds do appear in book income, however, so this creates a permanent tax difference (it does not reverse in a later period).

Deciding whether to Drop a Product Line
 
06:48
When deciding whether to drop a product line, the only things that should be considered are the contribution margin provided by the product line and the fixed costs that could be avoided by dropping the product line. This is important because fixed costs are sometimes allocated to product lines, which can distort managerial decision-making by creating the appearance that the firm would be more profitable by dropping a product line that may appear unprofitable because it is being allocated fixed costs that would not disappear if the product line were dropped.

This video discusses the Deferred Tax Asset Valuation Allowance in Financial Accounting. Deferred Tax Assets provide future tax savings by reducing income tax payable in the future. A firm cannot realize these tax savings, however, if the firm does not generate taxable income in the future. Thus, if management believes it is more likely than not that some of the tax benefits provided by a deferred tax asset will not be realized, the firm must set up a valuation allowance as a contra-account to offset the value of the deferred tax asset on the balance sheet. If at some point in the future the firm does generate taxable income, it can reduce the valuation allowance. Management has considerable discretion in making decisions regarding the likelihood that the benefits from a deferred tax asset will be realized. In some cases, management may exploit the deferred tax asset valuation allowance for purposes of earnings management. Edspira is your source for business and financial education.

3 Ways to Allocate Costs to Multiple Support Departments (Direct, Step-down, and Reciprocal methods)

This video discusses three different ways to allocate the costs of multiple support departments when the support departments provide services to each other. The key question is how to treat the costs of services that the support departments provide to each other. The Direct Method does not allocate any of these costs, the Step-down Method allocates some of these costs, and the Reciprocal Method allocates all of these costs.

Goodwill Impairment Single Step Test (ASU 2017-04)
 
05:11
This video shows how to calculate a goodwill impairment using the single-step goodwill impairment test outlined by Accounting Standards Update 2017-04 (U.S. GAAP). Under the single-step test, you compare the fair value of the reporting unit to the carrying value (the value on the Balance Sheet). If the fair value is lower than the carrying value, the difference is recognized as a goodwill impairment (this reduces Net Income). However, the amount of any goodwill impairment is limited by the amount of goodwill that is on the Balance Sheet. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ✅ Subscribe: https://www.youtube.com/user/EducationUnlocked?sub_confirmation=1 Edspira website: https://www.edspira.com/ Article: https://www.edspira.com/goodwill-impairments/ Edspira is the creation of Michael McLaughlin, who went from teenage homelessness to a PhD.

Book vs. Tax Income (Accounting for Taxes)
 
05:14
This video discusses the difference between book income and taxable income in the United States. Book income is pre-tax financial income that is reported on an accrual basis in accordance with U.S. GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles). Book income is the income that is reported on the financial statements (the Income Statement). Taxable income, on the other hand, is that which is computed for purposes of filing the corporation's income tax return. There are many differences between book income and taxable income. This is because book income and taxable income have different objectives. Book income measures the change in a corporation's wealth and is used by investors and creditors to predict the timing and certainty of the firm's cash flows. Taxable income is computed on a modfied cash-basis and is based on the ability-to-pay doctrine (when a taxpayer receives cash, he or she is able to pay the tax on it even if the revenue hasn't been "earned"). Taxable income is used to compute the firm's tax due to raise revenue for the United States government. The differences between book and tax income can be temporary (this means the difference will reverse in a future period) or permanent (this means the difference never reverses).
