ACC 405 Final Project One Guidelines and Rubric

Overview

The first final project for this course is to prepare computations, consolidation entries, and a consolidation worksheet in an Excel worksheet. This worksheet focuses on the consolidation of the parent company and a less-than-wholly-owned subsidiary with differential, intercompany transfers and indebtedness. Additionally, you will create a memo outlining the unique calculations required on the consolidation worksheet and on the statement of cash flows if Posey also obtains an international subsidiary with non-US$ functioning currency. The final product represents an authentic demonstration of competency because accounting professionals are often asked to work within complex or unique business situations. Your response will rely heavily on using accounting standards to create reports, as well as considering any outstanding factors that could affect the report. Final Project One has one milestone, which will be submitted in Module Four to scaffold learning and ensure quality final submissions. Final Project One will be submitted in Module Six. In this assignment, you will demonstrate your mastery of the following course competencies:

 ACC-405-01: Analyze economic activity of complex or unique business situations

 ACC-405-02: Use accounting standards to create various financial reports intended for a variety of stakeholders.

Prompt

Review the Project One Scenario document. Then address the critical elements listed below. Most of the critical elements align with a particular course outcome (shown in brackets).

I. Excel Workbook: In this section you will prepare computations, consolidation entries, and a consolidation worksheet for the preparation of consolidated financial statements for 20X7. Do not round your intermediate calculations. Round your final answer to the nearest whole dollar. If no entry is required for a transaction/event, select “No journal entry required” in the first account field. In regard to the three-part worksheet for the preparation of consolidated financial statements, values in the first two columns (the “parent” and “subsidiary” balances) that are to be deducted should be indicated with a minus sign, while all values in the “Consolidation Entries” columns should be entered as positive values. For accounts where multiple adjusting entries are required, combine all debit entries into one amount and enter this amount in the debit column of the worksheet. Similarly, combine all credit entries into one amount and enter this amount in the credit column of the worksheet.

A. Calculate the amount of the goodwill as of January 1, 20X7. [ACC-405-01]

Milestones

Milestone One: Consolidation Calculations, Entries, and Worksheets In Module Four, you will submit an Excel worksheet. This milestone will have the completed calculations and consolidation entries for the requirements for this project. This milestone will be graded with the Milestone One Rubric. Final Submission: Consolidation Workbook and Memo In Module Six, you will submit Final Project One. It should be a complete, polished artifact containing all of the critical elements of the final product. It should reflect the incorporation of feedback gained throughout the course. In addition to revising your milestone work, make sure that you include Section II: Memo, which was not included in the milestone. This submission will be graded with the Final Project One Rubric.
