The verb manage comes from the Italian maneggiare (to handle, especially tools), which derives from the Latin word manus (hand). The French word mesnagement (later ménagement) influenced the development in meaning of the English word management in the 17th and 18th centuries.[1]
Views on the definition and scope of management include: * Management defined as the organization and coordination of the activities of an enterprise in accordance with certain policies and in achievement of clearly defined objectives * Fredmund Malik defines as Management is the transformation of resources into utility. * Management included as one of the factors of production - along with machines, materials and money * Peter Drucker (1909–2005) sees the basic task of a management as twofold: marketing and innovation. Nevertheless, innovation is also linked to marketing (product innovation is a central strategic marketing issue). Peter Drucker identifies marketing as a key essence for business success, but management and marketing are generally understood[by whom?] as two different branches of business administration knowledge. * Directors and managers should have the authority and responsibility to make decisions to direct an enterprise when given the authority[citation needed] * As a discipline, management comprises the interlocking functions of formulating corporate policy and organizing, planning, controlling, and directing a firm's resources to achieve a policy's objectives * The size of management can range from one person in a small firm to hundreds or thousands of managers in multinational companies. * In large firms, the board of directors formulates the policy that the chief executive officer implements.[2]

Management involves the manipulation of the human capital of an enterprise to contribute to the…...

...FASB Statement No. 13: Accounting for Leases Asim Yunus ACC 632 – Critique of Accounting Theory Professor Lynch October 16, 2012   FASB Statement 13: Accounting for Leases FASB Statement 13, Accounting for Leases, was established by the FASB and made effective starting January 1st, 1977. As early as 1949, leasing was recognized as an important financial tool by the accounting business when the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) issued Accounting Research Bulletin No. 38, “Disclosure of Long-Term Leases in the Financial Statements of Lessees.” In the 1960s, the APB recognized how important accounting for leases was when they included it in the top five topics that were to be studied by the AICPA’s Accounting Research Division. In 1962, the Accounting Research Study No. 4, “Reporting of Leases in Financial Statements”, was released and eventually APB picked up the subject. For the next ten years, the APB released four opinions (No. 5, 7, 27 & 31) concerning leases which were improved by three AICPA Accounting Interpretations. Even though progress was made when it came to the topic of Accounting for Leases, certain questions remained. The SEC helped out on the topic as well by issuing three pronouncements concerning leases (Accounting Series Releases No. 132, 141 & 147) on October 5, 1973. Like APB Opinion No. 31, Accounting Research Series No. 147 only dealt with disclosure. There were still many holes in the lease accounting practice. The FASB......

Accounting for Leases

...Introduction A lease is a contractual arrangement that involves the coming together of two patties for the hire of an asset. The party that owns the asset is called the lessor. The other party in this agreement is the Lessee. The Lessee is the party which hires the asset which is leased. The asset is hired for a specified period of time. During this period, the Lessee makes rental payment to the lessor. After the lease period is over, the asset can be returned to the lessor. However, the asset can also be owned by the Lessee. The nature of ownership of the asset after the lease period is over depends on the initial details of the contract (Young, 2008). During the period of the lease, the Lessee takes care of the asset. The Lessee maintains the asset and is responsible for any damage on the asset. In order to record the leased asset, various entries must be made in the books of the Lessee. The different accounting treatments arise at this point. The accounting treatments are dependent on the nature of the lease. Section A: The three treatments There are three accounting treatments that the Lessee can apply in recording the accounting details for the lease agreement. In the first scenario, the Lessee takes acknowledgement of the fact that the lease is a liability to the business. It is a liability in the sense that payments have to be made for it to be used. The asset has to be returned back to the owner after the end of the lease period. Therefore, the asset is hired for a...

...Death of the Operating Lease Running head: DEATH OF THE OPERATING LEASE 1 Death of the Operating Lease and its Impact on Leading U.S. Companies Mark S. Lynn Mount St. Mary’s University Copyright 2010, Mark S. Lynn Death of the Operating Lease Abstract The proposed elimination of operating lease treatment by the IASB and FASB, as outlined in 2 their discussion paper, Leases – Preliminary Views, will have a varying degree of impact on U.S firms. After a review of the evolution of lease accounting and a discussion of financial ratio analysis, this paper examines the impact of the proposed accounting change on common financial ratios of 142 large public companies. The proposal requiring the capitalization of all lease arrangements is generally detrimental to such financial measurements, with significant variability among industry sectors. Through surveys and interviews, it is further determined that while a majority of corporate financial executives do not support the proposed accounting change, they have yet to analyze the impact and prepare for the effects of the change within their own companies.

Lease Exposure Draft

...Group 1 ACCT 5321.001 Dr. Martin Taylor FASB/IASB Exposure Draft on Leases The International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) and the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) published comment a revised Exposure Draft on Leases on May 16th, 2013 and closed on September 13th, 2013. Based on this exposure, two boards claimed that the existing financial reporting of leasing activities fails to meet the needs of users of financial statements. While the existing accounting principles require to record the leased assets and liabilities on the lessee’s financial statements under capital/finance lease but not under operational leases, the new approach would require a lessee to recognize assets and liabilities for all leases with a maximum possible term (including any option to extend) of more than 12 months. This new approach also changes lessor accounting that it more accurately reflect the leasing activities of different lessors. The boards received 786 comment letters in response to the 2010 Exposure Draft from entities and organizations from many industries, including nonpublic entities. Some respondents supported the effects of the proposed model, some respondents disagreed with the lessor accounting proposals. The reasons are that it was not consistent with the single accounting model proposed for lessees; it did not support the performance obligation approach; and the existing lessor accounting requirements still work well in practice. Respondents also concerned......

...appropriate risk evaluations of a firms statement of financial position”’. Leases are a common financial tool used by many businesses and individuals on a daily basis to transfer the ownership of many different types of assets. Creditors are largely involved with many leases and company balance sheets as they are always interested in making valued judgements of their financial position with the current leasing disclosure requirements providing some discrepancies for creditors in making these risk evaluations. These issues surrounding the treatment and disclosure of leases provide the need for rigorous speculation into the accounting treatment and classification of the different types of leases so that the users of financial statements are provided with a clear view of a firm’s financial position and performance. With the relative ease in which a company can manipulate the classification of their leases, it makes it hard for creditors to make valued judgements of a company’s balance sheet. The current guidelines of AASB 117 require a company to classify its leases as either a finance lease or an operating lease. Only finance leases are required to be disclosed on a company’s statement of financial position with operating leases being excluded. This is one potential issue arising for creditors as the balance sheet might therefore be an unreliable measure of a company’s financial position. Operating leases are a form of off-balance sheet reporting that “potentially enhances......

...Leases: Practical implications of the new Leases Standard Introduction The International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) and the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) (the Boards) are working together to improve the accounting for leases. In an effort to achieve this objective, the Boards reached a common ground that a customer (lessee) leasing assets should recognise assets and liabilities arising from those leases, including leases that are off balance sheet today. The Boards jointly published a revised Exposure Draft Leases (the 2013 ED) in May 2013. The Boards received extensive feedback on their proposals, and have heard a broad range of views. Since March 2014 the Boards have re-deliberated on nearly all aspects of the project. They will decide upon the effective date of the new Leases Standard in the next few months. The IASB has indicated that it has plans to issue the new Leases Standard before the end of 2015. The lessee accounting model developed The model is from the view that, at the inception of a lease, the lessee obtains the right to use an asset for a period of time and has an obligation to pay for that right. Therefore, it requires that for all leases, the lessee should: * recognise lease assets and liabilities on the balance sheet, initially measured at the present value of unavoidable lease payments; * recognise amortisation of lease assets and interest on lease liabilities over the lease term; and * separate the total amount of cash paid......

Lease lease can be recognized. The accounting method for a finance lease and for an operating lease is different. In the leases-joint project of IASB and FASB, opinions about accounting method of lessee divided under two accounting systems. FASB uses a dual approach and IFRS uses a single approach for lessee accounting. Under the single approach, a lessee will recognize all leases as “Type A” leases, which means recognize amortization of the right-of-use (ROU) asset separately from interest on the lease liability. Under IFRS, there are exemption of small-ticket leases and short-term leases for the accounting of lessee. For small-ticket leases, there is no clear benchmark about the classification of “small”. But short-term leases are leases that have leasing term of 12 months or less. Financial reports need to disclose more information weighing the cost. Considering this exemption is for the convenience of companies with insignificant leases, we design the line of 1% of total asset amount. As far as we concerned, comparing to the time limit, the proportion can reflect more precisely the impact on the company. Besides, for a small corporation, making an option for a lease whether to be finance lease or operating lease will cause a huge change of revenue of this year. In other words, we propose a new criterial for defining small assets and small-ticket leases. Therefore, the new standard is aligned with IASB. Scope The standard will be applied in accounting for leases......

...Changes to Accounting Standards for Leases Who is likely to be affected? Businesses which are lessees or lessors of assets and account for lease transactions using a leasing accounting standard which changes on or after 1 January 2011. General description of the measure Current accounting standards are International Accounting Standards (IAS) and UK Generally Accepted Accounting Practice (UK GAAP). Changes to the IAS lease accounting standard are expected during 2011, and changes to UK GAAP might follow in 2013. Legislation will be introduced in Finance Bill 2011 to ensure continuity of tax treatment for lease transactions for businesses which begin to account for the transactions under new accounting standards, expected to be introduced from 2011. The measure will require tax profits and losses to continue to be calculated as if the changes to lease accounting standards had not taken place. Policy objective The measure will ensure that existing tax rules that rely on accounting classifications of leases as operating or finance leases, and the accounting treatment of lease transactions, continue to operate in the way they currently do. The objectives are to: • • ensure that lessors and lessees will be neither disadvantaged nor advantaged by the proposed accounting changes; remove uncertainty for businesses about the future tax treatment of leasing contracts, arising from uncertainty about future lease accounting standards and their interaction with current tax......

Accounting Exposure Draft

...Exposure Draft: Revenue Recognition (Topic 605): Revenue from Contracts with Customers The Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) and the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) have publishing this exposure draft as revenue is a vital number that financial statement users use to value a company’s performance. Both Boards require improvements in their revenue recognition requirements, therefore joined forces to refine the principles for revenue recognition. The goal of the FASB and the IASB is to “develop a common” revenue recognition principle that would: 1. Strengthen the current revenue recognition procedure; 2. Enhance revenue recognition procedures throughout organizations; and 3. Provide a simplified method of preparing financial statements. The proposal would affect all organizations that “enter into contracts to provide goods and services” (Financial Accounting Standards Board, June 2010) which they would normally provide. The following questions will be addressed to clarify our position on the Exposure Draft: Question 1: Paragraphs 12 – 19 (see Exhibit A) propose a principle (price interdependence) to help an entity determine whether to: a.) Combine two or more contracts and account for them as a single contract; b.) Segment a single contract and account for it as two or more contracts; and c.) Account for a contract modification as a separate contract or as part of the original contract. Do we agree with that......
