A. On June 30, 2011, Barbie Company was considering alternatives to bolster its cash position. Option One called for transferring $400,000 in accounts receivables to ABC Finance Company without recourse for a 5% fee. Option Two calls for Barbie to transfer the $400,000 in receivables to ABC with recourse. ABC charges a 4% fee for receivables factored with recourse. Option Two meets the conditions to be considered a sale, but Barbie estimates a $3,000 recourse liability. Under either option, ABC will immediately remit 90% of the factored receivables to Barbie, and retain 10%. When ABC collects the remaining receivables, it remits the amount, less the fee, to Barbie. Barbie estimates that the fair value of the final 10% of the receivables is $25,000 (ignoring the factoring fee).
