In as much as your bank has reached its quota for loans of this type, only one of these requests is to be granted.

Assume that the ending account balances are representative of the entire year. CA24-2 (Disclosures Required in Various Situations) Rem Inc. produces electronic components for sale to manufacturers of radios, television sets, and digital sound systems. In connection with her examination of Rem’s financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2007, Maggie Zeen, CPA, completed field work 2 weeks ago. Ms. Zeen now is evaluating the significance of the following items prior to preparing her auditor’s report. Except as noted, none of these items have been disclosed in the financial statements or notes. Item 1 A 10-year loan agreement, which the company entered into 3 years ago, provides that dividend payments may not exceed net income earned after taxes subsequent to the date of the agreement. The balance of retained earnings at the date of the loan agreement was $420,000. From that date through December 31, 2007, net income after taxes has totaled $570,000 and cash dividends have totaled $320,000. On the basis of these data, the staff auditor assigned to this review concluded that there was no retained earnings restriction at December 31, 2007. Item 2 Recently Rem interrupted its policy of paying cash dividends quarterly to its stockholders. Dividends were paid regularly through 2006, discontinued for all of 2007 to finance purchase of equipment for the company’s new plant, and resumed in the first quarter of 2008. In the annual report dividend policy is to be discussed in the president’s letter to stockholders. Item 3 A major electronics firm has introduced a line of products that will compete directly with Rem’s priXXXXX XXXXXne, now being produced in the specially designed new plant. Because of manufacturing innovations, the competitor’s line will be of comparable quality but priced 50% below Rem’s line. The competitor announced its new line during the week following completion of field work. Ms. Zeen read the announcement in the newspaper and discussed the situation by telephone with Rem executives. Rem will meet the lower prices that are high enough to cover variable manufacturing and selling expenses but willpermit recovery of only a portion of fixed costs. Item 4 The company’s new manufacturing plant building, which cost $2,400,000 and has an estimated life of 25 years, is leased from Ancient National Bank at an annual rental of $600,000. The company is obligated to pay property taxes, insurance, and maintenance. At the conclusion of its 10-year noncancellable lease, the company has the option of purchasing the property for $1. In Rem’s income statement the rental payment is reported on a separate line. Instructions For each of the items above discuss any additional disclosures in the financial statements and notes that the auditor should recommend to her client. (The cumulative effect of the four items should not be considered)</p><p> </p><p>I'd like to get it back by Sat evening Thx</p>

Anyway, if you click "My Questions" tab above, you will see the post that starts with "For BusinessTutor E5-12 ", that is the one that you have not accepted. I am also not sure why when you click accept nothing happens, I checked with management and I have been posting solutions and nobody had problems like that at all. I am not sure if there is a problem with your pc
