You are the independent auditor engaged to audit Christine Agazzi Corporationâ€™s December 31, 2008, financial statements. Christine Agazzi manufactures household appliances. During the course of your audit, you discovered the following contingent liabilities. 1. Christine Agazzi began production on a new dishwasher in June 2008 and, by December 31, 2008, sold 100,000 to various retailers for $500 each. Each dishwasher is under a one-year warranty. The company estimates that its warranty expense per dishwasher will amount to $25. At year-end, the company had already paid out $1,000,000 in warranty expenses. Christine Agazziâ€™s income statement shows warranty expenses of $1,000,000 for 2008. Agazzi accounts for warranty costs on the accrual basis. 2. In response to your attorneyâ€™s letter, Robert Sklodowski, Esq., has informed you that Agazzi has been cited for dumping toxic waste into the Kishwaukee River. Clean-up costs and fines amount to $3,330,000. Although the case is still being contested, Sklodowski is certain that Agazzi will most probably have to pay the fine and clean-up costs. No disclosure of this situation was found in the financial statements. 3. Christine Agazzi is the defendant in a patent infringement lawsuit by Heidi Goldman over Agazziâ€™s use of a hydraulic compressor in several of its products. Sklodowski claims that, if the suit goes against Agazzi, the loss may be as much as $5,000,000; however, Sklodowski believes the loss of this suit to be only reasonably possible. Again, no mention of this suit occurs in the financial statements. As presented, these contingencies are not reported in accordance with GAAP which may create problems in issuing a clean audit report. You feel the need to note these problems in the work papers.
Instructions Heading each page with the name of the company, balance sheet date, and a brief description of the problem, write a brief narrative for each of the above issues in the form of a memorandum to be incorporated in the audit work papers. Explain what led to the discovery of each problem and what the problem really is. In addition, indicate the proper accounting (along with any appropriate journal entries) to record these contingencies in accordance with GAAP.
