Limited Liability Entities
Some special considerations
Reporting entities frequently are formed as limited liability entities, particularly limited liability companies and limited liability partnerships.

The accounting literature that particularly relates to these types of entities, herein referred to collectively as "LLCs", is found in the FASB Accounting Standards Codification (FASB ASC) Topic 272, Limited Liability Entities.
LLCs are formed in accordance with laws of various jurisdictions under which the entities are organized. Given that laws in this arena are not uniform, characteristics of LLCs may likely vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.
Contact WEC today to speak with one of our A & A experts and learn more about limited liability entities.
Have you analyzed your company's cash flow lately?
Why it's important.
We've all heard the age-old expression: "Cash is king." No other place is this more true than in business.
Cash is the key component that makes any business function because it's needed to pay banks, vendors, suppliers and employees. Having sufficient cash on hand may also keep a company out of debt by removing a motive for taking out loans and by preventing unnecessary expenses such as late payment charges.
In addition, when trying to determine how much a company is worth, one fundamental rule many investors use is to invest in stock that earns a lot of cash year in and year out. After all, a company is only worth what it can deliver in the form of cash to investors in the long run.

Update addresses impairment of certain intangible assets
The Financial Accounting Standards Board issued guidance in July 2012 that applies to all reporting entities - public, private and not-for-profit - for testing impairment of indefinite-lived intangible assets.
Some examples of intangible assets that will be subject to the new "optional" qualitative impairment testing guidance include indefinite-lived trademarks, licenses and distribution rights.
