(b) Basu Company uses a lot of production equipment to
manufacture its goods. For a specific assembly line, it leases a
set of equipment, with the leases starting 4 years ago. Basu
management negotiated lease terms of 10 years for this equipment.

years. Which assertions are impacted by management’s choice to

(c) Thimble Company’s manufacturing process creates excess bits
of metal scrap (called ‘offal’) that
Thimble ships monthly to scrap dealers for disposal. During
October, Thimble collects the offal from the factory, and on
December 20, 2017 places it in storage bins in a warehouse to await
shipment. On December 26 a large rainstorm floods the warehouse and
washes most all of the offal into a stream. The stream flows into
land owned by Dosch Brewery (DB), which uses water from the stream
to make its premium ale. Thimble management believes the offal
washed into the stream, knows the stream flows into DB land, and
knows DB uses stream water to make its ale. Management does not
know how DB filters its water before brewing the ale, and is
therefore unsure whether the filters will keep the offal out of the
ale. Thimble management decides not to

tell DB of the event as of December 31.

What types of assertions would management potentially make about
the above event in 2017’sfinancial reports? Explain fully in a few
sentences.

interest payment, to receive either a stated amount of cash
interest or a stated number of shares of Kat’s common stock. Each
bondholder notifies Kat within 2 weeks of each interest payment
date of its preference, and Kat

must honor the bondholders’ choices on the payment dates.

Which types of assertions are particularly difficult for
management to make for this txn? Explain Fully in a few
sentences.
