On January 4, 2012, Kiley Co. leased a building to Dodd Corp. for a ten-year term at an annual rental of $100,000. At inception of the lease, Dodd received $400,000 covering the first two years' rent of $200,000 and a security deposit of $200,000. This deposit will not be returned to Dodd upon expiration of the lease but will be applied to payment of rent for the last two years of the lease. What portion of the $400,000 should be shown as a current and long-term liability in Kiley's December 31, 2012 balance sheet?
     Current Liability         Long-term Liability

$100,000         $200,000

$0         $400,000

One criticism not normally aimed at a balance sheet prepared using current accounting and reporting standards is

failure to include items of financial value that cannot be recorded objectively.
failure to reflect current value information.
the extensive use of separate classifications.
an extensive use of estimates.

Balance sheet information is useful for all of the following except to

analyze cash inflows and outflows for the period.
evaluate capital structure.
assess future cash flows.
compute rates of return.

The net assets of a business are equal to

current assets minus current liabilities.
total assets plus total liabilities.
total assets minus total stockholders' equity.
None of these.

The basis for classifying assets as current or noncurrent is the period of time normally required by the accounting entity to convert cash invested in

inventory back into cash, or 12 months, whichever is longer.
inventory back into cash, or 12 months, whichever is shorter.
receivables back into cash, or 12 months, whichever is longer.
tangible fixed assets back into cash, or 12 months, whichever is longer.
