Note 1 - Operations and significant accounting policies (continued)
Use of estimates
The preparation of the consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods. Such estimates include, but are not limited to, revenue recognition, impairment and allowances of trade receivable, other receivables, amounts due from related parties, useful life of property, plant and equipment, employee benefit accruals, income taxes and fair value measurements. Actual results could differ materially from those estimates.
Cash and cash equivalents
Cash and cash equivalents consist primarily of highly liquid investments with an original maturity of three months or less. Cash and cash equivalents are carried at cost which approximates market value.
Accounts receivable, net
Accounts receivable are recognized at invoiced amounts and do not bear interest. The Group maintains an allowance for doubtful accounts for estimated losses resulting from the inability of its customers to make required payments. The Group reviews its allowance for doubtful accounts receivable on an ongoing basis. In establishing the required allowance, management considers any historical losses, the customer’s financial condition, the accounts receivable aging, and the customer’s payment patterns. After all attempts to collect a receivable have failed and the potential for recovery is remote, the receivable is written off against the allowance.
Property and equipment, net
Property, plant and equipment are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation. Expenditures for major renewals and improvements, which extend the original estimated economic useful lives of applicable assets, are capitalized. Expenditures for normal repairs and maintenance are charged to expense as incurred. The costs and related accumulated depreciation of assets sold or retired are removed from the accounts and any gain or loss thereon is recognized in the consolidated statement of operations. Depreciation is provided for on a straight-line basis method over the estimated useful lives of the respective assets. The estimated useful lives of the assets are as follows:
