Members should use the AICPA conceptual framework for independence to:a) come to different conclusions than the interpretations of the code of professional conduct.
b) Evaluate independence matters not addressed in the code of professional conduct.
c) understand the rules on the confidential client information and acts discreditable to the profession.
d) more easily interpret conflicts of interest and subordination of judgement by a member.

Answers

Answer 1
Answer:

Option C is the correct answer. The AICPA's conceptual framework for independence is utilized or used to assess any challenges to members' independence.

Litigation, adverse interest between or among the CPA firm and the client, self-interest, familiarity outcoming in a financial benefit result to the CPA firm, CPA firm owning stock in the client's firm, and so on are all examples of threats

In the new AICPA Code, two conceptual frameworks;

  • One for participants in public accounting

  • One for participants in the sector reflects a significant change in substance.

The conceptual framework strategy is one manner in which warnings to completely comply with rules originating from a specific link or condition that are not covered by the code can be;

  • Discovered

  • Assessed

  • Resolved

Therefore, Option C) "Understand the rules of confidential client information and professional misconduct." is the correct answer.

Answer 2
Answer:

Members should use the AICPA conceptual framework for independence to  understand the rules on the confidential client information and acts discreditable to the profession.

Option C

Explanation:

Two conceptual frameworks, one each for participants in public accounting and one for participants in the sector, represent a major change to substance in the updated AICPA Code.

In all of these two implementation frameworks, the conceptual framework strategy is one way in which warnings to fully comply with rules arising from a specific connection or circumstance which are not covered by the code can be identified, assessed and addressed.

If Garden Variety Flower Shop uses 750 clay pots a month. The pots are purchased at $2 each. Annual carrying costs per pot are estimated to be 30 percent of cost, and ordering costs are $20 per order. The manager has been using an order size of 1,500 flower pots:

  • a. What additional annual cost is the shop incurring by staying with this order size will be: $105.24
  • b. What benefit would using the optimal order quantity yield will be 51.63%

a. Additional annual cost

Annual demand (D) =$750 x 12= $9,000

Ordering cost=$20 per order

Annual carrying costs(H)=0.30 ×$2.00 = $0.60

Order Quantity(Q) = 1,500

Find TC for Q

TC=Q÷2×H + D÷Q × S

TC=1,500÷2 × $0.60 + $9,000÷1,500×$20

TC=$450+$120

TC=$570............. (1)

Now find Qo

Qo=√2DS÷H

Qo=√2×$9,000×$20÷0.60

Qo=√600,000

Qo=$774.596

Qo=$774.60 (Approximately)

Find TC for Qo

TC=Q÷2×H + D÷Q ×

TC=774.60÷2 × $0.60 + $9,000÷774.60×$20

TC=$232.38+$232.38

TC=$464.76................(2)

Now let determine the additional annual cost

Additional annual cost=$570-$464.56

Additional annual cost=$105.24

b. Benefit would using the optimal order quantity yield (relative to the order size of 1,500)

Benefit=Qo÷Q

Benefit=$774.60÷1,500×100

Benefit=51.63%

The benefit is that about 51.63% of the storage space would be needed.

Answer:

Additional cost= $570

Explanation:

Monthly demand = 750

Annual demand (D) = Monthly Demand x Number of months in a year

Annual demand (D) = 750 x 12 = 9,000

Cost (C) = $2.00 each

Annual carrying costs (Cc) = 30 percent of cost

Annual carrying costs (Cc) = 30% of $2.00 = $0.60

Ordering costs (Co) = $20

Current order quantity (Q1) = 1,500

Solution:

(a) Current cost is calculated as,

Current cost = Annual carrying costs + Annual ordering costs

Current cost = [(Quantity / 2) x Carrying cost] + [(Annual demand / Current Quantity) x Ordering cost]

Current cost = [(1500 / 2) x $0.60] + [(9000 / 1500) x $20]

Current cost = $450 + $120

Current cost = $570

What are​ price, output,​ profits, marginal​ revenues, and deadweight loss if the monopolist can price​ discriminate? ​(round all answers to two decimal​ places) In market​ 1, the price is ​$nothing and the quantity is nothing. In market​ 2, the price is ​$nothing and the quantity is nothing.

Answers

Complete question:

A   monopolist   is   deciding   how   to   allocate   output   between   two   geographically separated markets (East Coast and Midwest).  Demand and marginal revenue for the two markets are: P1 = 15 - Q1MR1 = 15 - 2Q1P2 = 25 - 2Q2MR2 = 25 - 4Q2. The monopolist’s total cost is C = 5 + 3(Q1 + Q2  ).  

What are price, output, profits, marginal revenues, and dead-weight loss

(i) if the monopolist can price discriminate?

(ii) if the law prohibits charging different prices in the two regions?

Solution:

Through price control, the monopolist selects quantity in each sector in such a manner that total income of each business is equivalent to total expense. The marginal cost is equivalent to three (the slope of the overall cost curve).

In the first market

15 - 2Q1 = 3, or Q1 = 6.

In the second market

25 - 4Q2 = 3, or Q2 = 5.5

Substituting into the respective demand equations, we find the following prices for the two markets : P1 = 15 - 6 = $9  and P2 = 25 - 2(5.5) = $14.

Noting that the total quantity produced is 11.5, then

π = ((6)(9) + (5.5)(14)) - (5 + (3)(11.5)) = $91.5.

The monopoly dead-weight loss in general is equal to  

DWL = (0.5)(QC - QM)(PM - PC ).

Here, DWL1 = (0.5)(12 - 6)(9 - 3) = $18  and                

         DWL2 = (0.5)(11 - 5.5)(14 - 3) = $30.25.

Therefore, the total dead-weight loss is $48.25.

Without pricing disparity, the monopoly holder would demand a single price for the whole sector. To optimize income, we find that the total revenue is equivalent to the total expense. Using demand calculations, we note that the complete market curve is kinked to Q = 5:  

P=25-2Q, if Q≤518.33-0.67Q, if Q5 .

This implies marginal revenue equations of MR=25-4Q, if Q≤518.33-1.33Q, if Q5

With marginal cost equal to 3, MR = 18.33 - 1.33Q is relevant here because the marginal   revenue   curve   “kinks”   when  P  =   $15.    

To   determine   the   profit-maximising quantity, equate marginal revenue and marginal cost: 18.33 - 1.33Q = 3, or Q = 11.5.

Substituting the profit-maximizing quantity into the demand equation to determine price :P = 18.33 - (0.67)(11.5) = $10.6.

With this price, Q1 = 4.3 and Q2 = 7.2.  

(Note that at these quantities MR1 = 6.3 and MR2 = -3.7).

Profit is(11.5)(10.6) - (5 + (3)(11.5)) = $83.2.

Dead-weight loss in the first market is DWL1 = (0.5)(10.6-3)(12-4.3) = $29.26.

If any, which of the following statements is FALSE?A. NPV measures the value created by taking on an investmentB. NPV indicates how much a project will improve owner wealthC. NPV is the discounted present value of a project's expected future accounting net income at the required return, subtracting the initial investmentD. None of the above statements is false

Answers

Answer:

C. NPV is the discounted present value of a project's expected future accounting net income at the required return, subtracting the initial investment.

Explanation:

NPV means Net Present Value, this is calculated by computing the present value of cash returns and not the accounting income, as accounting income takes in account non cash items also, although while computing returns the non cash transactions are not considered.

Therefore the chosen statement which states about accounting income less initial investment is false as even in case the project requires additional mid term investment then that is also considered.

Thus, false statement is

Kirby just inherited $250,000. He would like to hire a financial advisor to provide financial advice and to manage the inheritance. Kirby has interviewed two potential advisors. The first person indicated that he would not charge for his advice but would charge a 4.50% commission on any mutual funds purchased when managing the $250,000. The second person indicated that she would charge $2,500 to write a financial plan and 1% of any asset she manages. Which advisor should Kirby choose if he wants the $250,000 managed and is interested in minimizing his upfront expenses?A. The first advisor because there is no planning fee.
B. The second advisor because the total first-year cost is $5,000.
C. The first advisor because the total first-year cost is $5,000.
D. Because the cost is approximately the same, either advisor could be selected.

Answers

Answer:

The answer is A.

Explanation:

According to the details given in the question on the two financial advisor's approach, the first advisor does not request a payment but a commission on the funds purchased with the inheritance money. The second advisor does request payment for the job and also a share on the assets managed with the inheritance money.

If Kirby wants to minimize the upfront expenses which can be described as the sum that is paid before a service or a job is done, then the first advisor is the better option. So the answer is A.

I hope this answer helps.
