3. Fair Value Measurement: Practical Guidance and Implementation

Fair Value

Pengarang   :  Mark L. Zyla            

Imprint           :  New Jersey:  Wiley, 2020 

Mukasurat    :  492  

Sinopsis :

Fair Value Measurement provides hands-on guidance and the latest best practices for measuring fair value in financial reporting. The Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB), the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), and the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) have all updated their guidelines for practitioners, and this book details the changes from a practical perspective. This new third edition includes a discussion on Private Company Council accounting alternatives for business combinations and impairment testing, with a detailed example of the Market Participant Acquisition Premium (MPAP), including European and Asian examples and expanded discussion of IFRS.

Fair value measurement guidelines continue to evolve, and this comprehensive reference provides a valuable, up-to-date resource for preparers, auditors, and valuation specialists.

  • Adopt the best practices for implementing the FASB's Topic 820 (Fair Value Measurement);
  • Learn the latest reporting requirements for fair value measurements;
  • Understand accounting alternatives for business combinations; and
  • Examine the details of MPAP in Europe and Asia.

Applying fair value measurements to financial statements requires a move away from rules-based standards and toward application of professional judgment. This controversial shift has led to a reliance on valuation specialists, who face their own challenges in applying Topic 820 (Fair Value Measurement) amidst an economic downturn and recovery, leading to an ever-evolving set of best practices. Practitioners must stay up to date and be aware of the changes as they occur. Fair Value Measurement provides the most recent information and a practical approach to this area of financial reporting.

10. Andai Umat ini Hidup seperti Umar Al-Khatab

Andai Umat

Pengarang   : Ustaz Wadi Annuar             

Imprint           : Batu Cave:  Publishing House, 2019

Muka surat   : 239  

Sinopsis :

Siapa yang tidak mengenali tokoh dan sahabat Rasulullah S.A.W. yang mulia, bernama Umar al-Khattab? Kasih sayang Allah S.W.T. kepada Saidina Umar R.A. amat besar. Selain memberi hidayah kepada beliau, Allah S.W.T. juga mengilhamkan kebijaksanaan dan keistimewaan kepadanya. Antaranya;

  • Diberikan ilham yang bertepatan dengan dalil;
  • Seorang pengikut dan umat setia kepada Rasulullah S.A.W.;
  • Pemimpin yang adil dan amanah;
  • Salah seorang penulis wahyu;
  • Sahabat yang dijamin masuk syurga; dan
  • Menjadi anggota keluarga kepada Rasulullah S.A.W.

Di sebalik kemuliaan yang dikurniakan kepada beliau, sosok Saidina Umar sememangnya sangat terkenal dengan nilai-nilai murni dan kepimpinan yang gagah dan mempersonakan. Ketokohan yang ada pada dirinya diserlahkan lagi apabila beliau memilih untuk menjadi seorang Muslim dan pembela agama Islam. Keislaman ini juga adalah jawapan kepada doa baginda S.A.W. :

“Ya Allah, muliakanlah Islam dengan satu di antara kedua orang yang paling engkau cinta, Abu Jahal ataupun Umar bin Khattab. Dan ternyata yang lebih Allah S.W.T. cinta antara keduanya adalah Umar bin Khattab.”

Andainya Umat Ini Hidup Seperti Umar Al-Khattab ...

Terdapat pelbagai sifat dan akhlak yang dapat kita contohi dan mengambil inspirasi daripada kehidupan Saidina Umar sehingga beliau dihormati oleh semua manusia. Rasulullah S.A.W. pernah menyatakan bahawa Saidina Umar adalah antara contoh manusia yang memberi inspirasi kepada ummat. Kita boleh jadikan sifat yang ada pada beliau sebagai sumber inspirasi dan semangat. 

Adil, Takwa dan Tawaduk.

Walaupun menjadi insan terpuji, Saidina Umar memilih untuk sentiasa merendahkan diri dan kekal tunduk kepada Maha Kuasa.

Akhlak ini adalah lambang keperibadian dan kehebatan Saidina Umar sehingga beliau disayangi oleh semua manusia bahkan beliau juga disayangi dan dicintai oleh Allah dan Nabi Muhammad S.A.W. Jadi, sebagai umat manusia di zaman yang maju ini, kita cuba menerokai dan mengambil inspirasi daripada akhlak Saidina Umar tersebut agar kita menjadi umat yang cemerlang di dunia dan akhirat.
