Question and answer
Discuss the advantages and disadvantages in regards to financing with bonds.
You can benefit from bond financing programs because they offer a cost-effective way to finance real estate and equipment. Lower rates and flexible terms keep you competitive while providing a smart solution for the refinancing of debt. [ You also win by taking advantage of the opportunity to obtain tax-exempt bonds. Disadvantage of bonds is that they are only as good as the borrower's ability
to pay the loans back. If the issuers of the bonds cannot pay back what they agreed to, the bonds will default. It is also a disadvantage if bonds are repaid early in a bond mutual fund. ]

In accounting, a contingent liability and the related contingent loss are recorded with a journal entry only if the contingency is both probable and the amount can be estimated.

If a contingent liability is only possible (not probable), or if the amount cannot be estimated, a journal entry is not required. However, a disclosure is required.

When a contingent liability is remote (such as a nuisance suit), then neither a journal nor a disclosure is required.
