What is contingent liability?..

Answer / pravin kale

Contingent liabilities are liabilities that may or may not
be incurred by an entity depending on the outcome of a
future event such as a court case. These liabilities are
recorded in a company's accounts and shown in the balance
sheet when both probable and reasonably estimable. A
footnote to the balance sheet describes the nature and
extent of the contingent liabilities. The likelihood of
loss is described as probable, reasonably possible, or
remote. The ability to estimate a loss is described as
known, reasonably estimable, or not reasonably estimable.

What is contingent liability?..

Answer / sivadas

a) A possible obligation that arises from past events and
the existence of which will be confirmed only by the
occurrence or non-occurrence of one or more uncertain
future events not wholly within the control of the
enterprise; or
b)A present obligation that arises from past events but is
not recognised because:
(i)it is not probable that an outflow of resources
embodying economic benefits will be required to settle the
obligation; or
(ii) a reliable estimate of the amount of the
obligation cannot be made.


Possible obligation - an obligation is a possible
obligation if, based on the evidence available, its
existence at the balance sheet date is considered not
probable.

Present obligation - an obligation is a present obligation
if, based on the evidence available, its existence at the
balance sheet date is considered probable, i.e., more
likely than not.
