a. P. Stebbins, PA, helped Price Corporation prepare a cash flow forecast of hospital operations. The forecast was presented by Stebbins at a city council hearing for approval under the city’s health services ordinance. Stebbins’s report, which accompanied the forecast, consisted entirely of a full description of the sources of information used and the major assumptions made but did not include a disclaimer on the achievability of the forecast.
b. Kim Philby of Philby & Burgess, PAs, received a telephone call from his friend John, who is financial vice-president of U.K. Auto Parts. U.K. distributes parts over a wide area and does about $40 million of business a year. U.K. is not a client but is audited by Anderson, Olds & Watershed PAs, a venerable firm in the city. Kim has been hoping that John would switch auditors. Today, John wants to get Kim’s opinion about accounting for lease capitalizations related to a particularly complicated agreement with franchise dealers. Kim makes notes and promises to call John tomorrow.

Huber’s controller, also a PA, has conducted his own audit of Little Hope, Inc., Huber’s single subsidiary, which amounts to 10% of the total assets, revenue, and income of the consolidated entity.
