Doing Some Work for My Boss

by newpost ·

I have been given a rather strange assignment, which in a normal company would probably be something that could get you in trouble. In this case the difference between the company and the boss is rather insignificant, so doing stuff for him is not going to get me in trouble. He is going to spend a fortune on his daughter’s marriage and I have been optioned off to his wife, apparently so that he does not have to be involved. Today I was looking at Toronto party buses, because she is thinking that they are going to need to have the wedding reception at some place other than the site of the wedding. They are going to get married at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, so the wedding reception is going to be some place else. They have not yet figured out the exact details of where. The question is pretty big. Read More »

I Feel Like a Important Customer

by newpost ·

I was looking for a new bank because the current bank that I have been with over the years has acquired many other banks and has become so impersonal. They also started charging for every little thing I needed from them. So I went online to do some research and locate a new bank. I did a Google search for Banks and found this website http://www.bankaislemleri.net.

A few different results of different banks came up, but most of them just didn’t have the personal service I was looking for. One of the things I was looking for was the ability to pay my bills online. I don’t like to do the traditional method of paying bills. Read More »

A Limo Bus is Really Nice!

by newpost ·

When I found out that a theater was going to have a play that my family absolutely loves, I knew that we had to all go see it together. We bought tickets on the first day so we could all sit together, and there ended up being 47 of us going to see it. We thought it would be really nice to all go together, so I looked at http://platinumpartybusrentaltoronto.com to see how much it would cost us if we all chipped in and rented a party bus together.

I thought that we would end up getting one that has the bench seats all facing forward, so I was in for a treat in a couple different ways. The first one was the price. Read More »

Pink Limo for Breast Cancer Patient

by newpost ·

When my mother-in-law was diagnosed with breast cancer it scared everyone. She is a very important part of the whole family. She underwent surgery and radiation. Fortunately, her chemo agents were just oral. All she had to do was take pills. She had to go in for a few radiation treatments. When she had her last one, we picked her up in a pink limo from Exec Limo Rental in Toronto. She cried. We all did. The plan was to go out for lunch in the limo. She was planning to go out to a local restaurant with my father-in-law anyway.

We took a ride around the city. The riverfront was pretty that time of year. We congratulated her on successfully completing her cancer treatments. The pink limo from execlimorentalstoronto.com was the perfect color for her ride home that day. We had lunch in the party room of a local restaurant. There was a bunch of us. Read More »

Financial Literacy Appreciation for Depreciation and Time Value of Money

by como ·

In today’s society, instant gratification and the desire to buy everything brand-new seems to be a typical behavior among most consumers. However, many consumers may decide to reevaluate their spending habits and proposed purchases if they better understood how quickly the book value of various items depreciated. Cars (vehicles), jewelry, books (especially text books), electronics, cds, dvds, power tools, and furniture all represent commodities with book values that depreciate at an exponentially fast rate. All of the aforementioned items could be bought at full price, but buying a used item could save consumers a considerable amount of money as well as still allow them to benefit from the useable life of the item. Ideally, enhancing financial literacy regarding depreciation would help individuals to reduce personal debt by reinforcing the disproportion between the quality of an item and what it cost. Nevertheless, having a working understanding of the various depreciation methods would definitely assist consumers to make conscious decisions when making purchases.

Depreciation is defined as the expenses associated with spreading-out or allocating the cost of an asset over its useful life by accounting for physical wear and tear, decay, and obsolescence. In order to measure depreciation several factors must be determined which include, the cost of the asset, the estimated useful life, and the estimated residual value. Typically, the cost to purchase an asset is a known amount by the purchasing entity, but the estimated useful life and the estimated residual value need to be determined. The estimated useful life of the asset represents the length of service that is expected from using the asset, which can be indicated in years, units of output, miles, and other measures. Next, the estimated residual value (which is also commonly referred to as the scrap value or salvage value) is expected to be the cash value of an asset at the end of its useful life or when the asset is sold or discarded. Typically, the estimated residual value will be determined by the owner of the property or another reliable source (i.e. Kelley-Blue Book). Straight line (SL) depreciation represents the simplest and most-often-applied depreciation method, in which an equal amount of depreciation is assigned to each year (or period) of asset use. For the most part, depreciation on goods purchased by consumers can be calculated through the SL depreciation method. In essence, SL depreciation per year = Cost-Residual Value/ Useful life in years. With this method, the depreciable cost can be determined by deducting the estimated residual value from the asset’s original cost. Consumers should also keep in mind that depreciation decreases the value of the asset, because the amount of depreciation continues to accumulate each year. Also, the valued equity of the asset decreases as a result to the depreciation expense. Thus, as the asset is used during operations, the accumulated depreciation increases while the book value of the asset decreases. In SL depreciation, the asset depreciates until the book value equals salvage value. When the estimated useful life is achieved, the asset is considered to be fully depreciated. For example, if an individual purchases a sports car for $55,000, with an estimated useful life of 10 years and an estimated salvage value of $8,000. The SL depreciation for the sports car would be determined by using the SL depreciation equation of (Cost-Residual Value/ Useful life in years) which equates to ($55,000-$8,000/10 years). In essence, the sports car would depreciate by $ 4, 700 per year.

In addition, many consumers that can’t afford to buy brand new big ticket items, often satisfy their wants and needs through participating in rent to own agreements with companies like Rent- A-Center and Aaron’s. Most consumers that make agreements with rent to own businesses often don’t fully understand the ins and outs of their contract. Typically, these rent to own business organizations earn revenue through marking up the retail price of items and by charging high interest rates, which are most likely compounded daily. In the end, the consumer that shops at rent to own stores sometimes end up paying twice as much as the item is worth and in many cases once the customer finally owns the item, it most likely has depreciated to its salvage value.

Long Term Home Loan Advantages That You Should Not Ignore

by como ·

If you have eventually figured out your dream house, you have come to the next important stage of realizing that dream house. You have to make a decision whether to go for a long term home loan or a short term home loan. Before making a decision given that you can also afford to avail of the latter loan term, you may like to look at the main advantages of a long term loan.

Availing of a long term home means paying a lower monthly amortisation. More often, the maturity period for a long term loan can be 25 or 30 years. A long term loan in a way provides you a sense of security since there is much lesser pressure in tightening your budget. Definitely, the trade off is that you must shoulder the load of paying a higher interest rate. The accumulated interest payment for the whole loan duration is significantly higher compared to a short loan term.

You must not solely look at the total amount that you expect to cash out. Note that if you can take a short term home loan but you opt for a long term loan, you possess usable savings which you can invest on high yielding investment endeavors. This makes sense if you earn more from your investment than the savings you generate from paying the lower interest of a short term home loan. Your sense of entrepreneurship then must come into play to allow your funds to grow significantly.
