Question description

"Intangibles and Research and Development Cost" Please respond to the following:

  • Compare and contrast the write-off methods for limited-life intangibles and indefinite-life intangibles. Suggest one (1) way in which a company could decrease the likelihood of recording a write-off of long-lived assets.
  • Imagine that you are the senior accountant at your organization, and management is unsure of what the generally accepted accounting principles are for recognizing research and development cost. Explain to management what qualifies as research and development cost, and infer the major impact that research and development cost has on the financial statements. Recommend to management whether the company should conduct its own research and development or hire a research and development firm. Justify your rationale.
