Samsung Galaxy Tab

Last year, I was thankful to received a gift from my brother, a Samsung Galaxy Tab (oldest model) which is a necessary in my online and offline daily activities.

The good thing about the gadget is that I can access sites through the internet with its built-in wifi to download apps, social media network applications and other related documents and accessories. Besides, it has also a camera that cannot only capture images but also can record videos.

Instead of using notebook in taking notes, I can use the Memo note application which is easy to access and convenient for me.


Declaration of Treasury Shares as Dividend

May treasury shares be declared as dividend?

According to Philippine General Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), treasury shares may be reissued as dividends in which case the cost of the shares shall be charged to retained earnings or accumulated profits (IAS Term).

But under the Philippine Corporation Code, the declaration of treasury shares as dividend is termed as property dividend.

However, under Philippine Accounting Standards (PAS) 32, treasury shares are a component of shareholders’ equity and not a financial asset.
