Question Description:

30

Mar 31, 2015. Widjaja Company is accounting for a long-term construction contract using the percentage-of-completion method. It is a 4-year contract that is currently in its second year. The latest estimates of total contract costs indicate that the contract will be completed at a profit to Widjaja Company. How would progress billings be accounted for? Include in your discussion the classification of progress billings in Widjaja Company financial statements. How would the income recognized in the second year of the 4-year contract be determined using the cost-to-cost method of determining percentage of completion? What would be the effect on earnings per share in the second year of the 4-year contract of using the percentage-of-completion method instead of the completed-contract method? Discuss. Assume you are the company’s controller and a CPA (since this is a AICPA adapted question). The company’s CEO, Ms. Widjaja, has approached you with the questions presented. Prepare a memo to her that answers the questions. vickiniuniu
