Question Description

Percentage of Completion Method

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.

Answer the following questions in the Discussion Board:

  1. What theoretical justification is there for Widjaja Company’s use of the percentage-of-completion method?
  2. How would progress billings be accounted for? Include in your discussion the classification of progress billings in Widjaja Company financial statements.
  3. 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?
  4. 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.

Tutor went the extra mile to help me with this essay. Citations were a bit shaky but I appreciated how well he handled APA styles and how ok he was to change them even though I didnt specify. Got a B+ which is believable and acceptable.
