Leading Tax and Forensic Accounting Firm Gettry Marcus Discusses the Timing of Year-End Bonuses for Tax Purposes

Woodbury, NY (PRWEB) December 11, 2013

Leading accounting and business valuation Gettry Marcus CPA, P.C., discusses various methods to time year-end bonuses for tax purposes.

Taxpayers generally prefer to accelerate deductions to reduce their current year income and taxes. In some situations, the tax code's accounting rules allow an accrual-basis employer to deduct a year-end employee bonus in the current year, even though the bonus will not be paid until the following year. A recent IRS Chief Counsel memorandum (FAA 20134301F) highlights some of the pitfalls that can affect when bonus compensation is deductible.

Accrual Method

Under the accrual-method of accounting (in contrast to the cash-method of accounting), a liability is incurred, and can be deducted, in the year in which:

1.    All the events have occurred that establish the fact of the liability;

2.    The amount of the liability can be determined with reasonable accuracy; and

3.    Economic performance has occurred.

The first factor, the all-events test, is met when the event fixing the liability occurs and payment is unconditionally due. Although an expense may be deductible before it is payable, liability must be firmly established. The "fact of liability" depends on whether legal rights or obligations exist as of the close of the year, not the probability that the rights will arise in the future.

Bonus Plans

An employer may establish an arrangement or plan that will pay a bonus to its employees in the succeeding year, based on an evaluation of current year performance.

Performance could be determined by objective factors, such as numerical goals set for the company or the employee. These bonuses may be deductible in the earlier year even though the employee, who must figure taxes on the cash method, won't need to recognize the income until it is paid. Or performance may be based on more subjective factors, such as an individual performance appraisal or the employer's discretion. These bonuses may be deductible in the later year. The requirements for awarding the bonus must be scrutinized, to determine when the liability becomes certain.

Is the liability deductible?

The IRS has stated that a bonus can be deducted in the current year if, under a bonus plan, the employee is notified in the current year the employee will receive a bonus, even though the bonus is not calculated or paid until the following year. An employer's bonus liability that is ascertainable by a fixed standard, such as a percentage of profits at the close of the year, accrues and is deductible in the current year even though the computations are not made until the following year.

For information about instances when a bonus cannot be accrued or employers may be denied a deduction in the current year, read the Gettry Marcus tax update.

Private Investigator Birmingham Announce Forensic Investigation Services in Light of BBC Report by Michelle Roberts on 18th Dec 2012: King Ramesses IIIs Throat was Slit

(PRWEB UK) 9 January 2013

The first CT scan to be carried out on the mummy believed to be King Ramesses III revealed that he had his throat cut. It is hotly debated how the king died and now it is hoped that through the new technology this controversy can be ended. The history is shrouded in mystery; The Judicial Papyrus tells of four separate trials of those listed in a plot which involved two of the kings known wives one called Tiye and her son Prince Pentawere who was a possible heir to the throne. Pentawere was found guilty at the trial and took his own life.

Two mummies are housed at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo one is King Ramesses III and the other found in a royal tomb near the Valley of the Kings is believed to be the kings son Pentawere. CT scans and DNA test were carried out on the mummies which found a deep, 2.7in (7cm) wound to the throat of the King. Scientists believe this could have killed him immediately. The DNA tests showed that the unidentified body was of a young man who was a blood relative of Ramesses III and probably his son.

The body of the young man was also examined by CT scan and it was found that he had unusual skin folds and wrinkles around the neck and an inflated chest this person could have been strangled to death. The body was not mummified in the normal way and was covered in a goatskin which could have been a punishment of a non-royal burial. These are surprising and fascinating results to the forensic analysis.

Private Investigator Birmingham offer DNA testing for paternity investigations and forensic investigation services that can be carried out on computers and laptops. These services are very interesting and hugely popular and helpful.

A spokesperson for Private Investigator Birmingham said:

Forensic services are interesting and helpful to clients in many ways. We have a PC forensic service which helps with broken and locked up computers. DNA testing is also popular for paternity cases and can lead to many surprises.

Private Investigator Birmingham along with their sister company Detective Agency London is a team of highly trained professional and discreet private investigators and detectives with over 35 years experience in the industry.

Oxygen Forensic Kit ? Portable Phone Forensics Solution For Complete On-The-Spot Analysis

Oxygen Forensic Kit – Portable Phone Forensics Solution For Complete On-The-Spot Analysis











Oxygen Forensic Kit


Moscow, Russia (PRWEB) June 02, 2011

Oxygen Software, the provider of computer forensic technologies and software products for police and security services, today announces a new portable device for on-the-spot extraction and analysis of forensic data from mobile devices, Oxygen Forensic Kit.

Mobile phone data is an important part of any police investigation, and extracting on-the-spot data from a seized device is crucial to collecting evidence. Typically, to examine a mobile phone, the investigator has to take the device to the forensic laboratory where a computer with specialized software is installed. The recent innovation from Oxygen Software is changing this scheme completely. All the tools the investigator needs for a fully-fledged forensic investigation are in the bag, so it is possible to examine the contents of the phone right at the crime scene.

Oxygen Forensic Kit is a complete and open solution at the same time. On the one hand, it contains preinstalled phone forensics software and drivers required to connect various devices. The set of cables allows connecting both modern and old devices. On the other hand, experts can add their own preferred software, plug other specific cables and use the kit as if it were your regular workflow in the forensic lab.

"With Oxygen Forensic Kit, you get the complete solution not only to perform data extraction, but also to analyze user data and get first results immediately without having to send a device to the lab. Moreover, you can install any additional software and use it as part of your portable phone forensics kit. Oxygen Forensic Kit has several unbeatable advantages: portability, completeness, scalability and the price, of course. Don’t you want to save about 2500 USD and get a complete ready-to-work solution, rather than order all components separately and spend your own time on configuration?" says Nikolay Golubev, Manager of Public Relations, Oxygen Software.

Oxygen Forensic Kit includes:


    Tablet PC 10.1" Multi-touch screen, Intel Atom 1.6 GHz, 250GB HDD (or 32Gb SSD + 32Gb USB Flash Drive), 2GB RAM, 3 x USB ports, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Camera;
    Tablet PC stand and leather carrying case;
    Preinstalled Windows 7 OS Home Premium 32 bit with the original DVD from Microsoft Company;
    Preinstalled, tuned and ready to use Oxygen Forensic Suite, Analyst license;
    DVD Box with Oxygen Forensic Suite, USB Dongle Analyst for another Desktop computer;
    Preinstalled and configured Oxygen Drivers Pack;
    Full and up-to-date Oxygen Cable Set;
    Printed Getting Started Guide for Oxygen Forensic Suite;
    Printed Devices and Cables Compatibility Guide;
    Roomy suitcase.

The solution is targeted at experts from forensic investigation departments of police and other law enforcement agencies, security services in organizations and enterprises, ensuring the protection of trade secrets, as well as experts from private detective agencies. Depending on the requirements of the client, Oxygen Software can replace Tablet PC with any other model of a computer with the agreed configuration.

The solution is scheduled for release on September 1, 2011. Pre-order of the product is available instantly at a special price.

As a part of Oxygen Forensic Kit, Oxygen Forensic Suite 2011 (Analyst license) acquires all phone data and presents it onto the computer screen providing powerful data carving tools, printing and reporting abilities. With Oxygen Forensic Suite experts can find out the exact place where the suspect was at the time of a call or used internet connection; reconstruct the approximate route of the suspect on Google Maps and Google Earth using geolocation coordinates stored by the smart phone; view all actions of the phone user in the chronological order; ascertain people who actively contact the suspect. By analyzing user data from applications, experts can reveal logins and passwords to popular social services, extract cached files and deleted data, analyze user correspondence and dictionaries. Extracted information also includes a basic data set, including phone and SIM-card data, phonebook contacts, calls, SMS / MMS / Email messages, tasks, notes, camera pictures and video, Lifeblog data, GPRS and Wi-Fi data traffic, mobile applications data (passwords and logins) and a lot of other valuable information.

Pricing & Availability

The release of Oxygen Forensic Kit is scheduled for September 1, 2011. However the pre-sale of the kit started today and interested users can order the product instantly. For all customers who buy the kit before September 1, the product is available at a discounted price, only 3799 USD (2799 EUR). Volume discounts are available.

New Software Tool Enhances Evidence Gathering Capabilities of Computer Forensic Investigators and Cyber-Crime Fighters

New Software Tool Enhances Evidence Gathering Capabilities of Computer Forensic Investigators and Cyber-Crime Fighters











Monroe, WA (PRWEB) April 4, 2006

Xolide Media and CyberSecurity Institute have developed the first digital forensic software tool capable of automatically reassembling fragments of graphic images, even if information regarding the locations of the fragments no longer exists. The two companies have been collaborating on the project, called FERS (Fragmented Evidence Recovery Suite) now for over a year.

File fragmentation occurs when parts of a file are stored in non-contiguous areas of a hard drive or other form of media. Attempts to recover and reassemble these fragments using current methods can take hundreds of hours when dealing with an average size hard drive. Because of this, important evidence is often not recovered during an investigation.

“The FERS will greatly enhance the amount of evidence that can be gathered during digital forensic investigations such as those involving child pornography and counterfeiting, “ said Steve Hailey, President and CEO of CyberSecurity Institute. “I’ve never seen capability like this in any forensic tool. What used to be an insurmountable task can now be completed within minutes,” said Hailey.

David and Michael Martinek of Xolide Media started working on the tool with Steve Hailey after attending a digital forensics class that Hailey teaches. “We saw how difficult and time consuming it was to reassemble fragmented files using current tools,” said David Martinek. “With our knowledge of graphic file formats, we knew we could come up with a solution,” Martinek said. Michael Martinek, the lead developer of the program commented: “This has been by far the most difficult project we've worked on to date, but everyone involved has been consistently impressed with the results. We're hopeful the law enforcement community will be able to embrace this tool and benefit from it.”

FERS has the capability to identify when known contraband such as child pornography has been stored on hard drives and other media by finding a single fragment of the file - all of the fragments related to a file do not need to be found. The tool also has the capability to display partial graphic images when some of the fragments are missing.

CyberSecurity Institute and Xolide Media will be presenting the FERS to a group of local and federal law enforcement officials this month that will be testing the tool and providing feedback. A finalized version is expected in approximately six months. The two companies are also looking for funding sources for continued development and to provide training and certification on the tool to those in the law enforcement community.

About Xolide Media:

Xolide Media provides programming services and custom software solutions to companies throughout the Pacific Northwest.

About CyberSecurity Institute:

CyberSecurity Institute is a leader in computer forensic services and training and provides computer forensic services to businesses, government, and attorneys. Forensic analysis services are provided to law enforcement agencies at reduced cost, with cases involving the exploitation of children being worked pro-bono.

The Disk Jockey mounts IDE hard disk drives via USB 2.0 or Firewire (IEEE 1394) as well as mirrors, spans, copies, compares, tests and erases hard disk drives using either a 1-pass or a 3-pass erase per the National Security Administration (NSA) guidelines.

The Disk Jockey has been called “a dream come true for any PC hobbyist or technician” – CPU, Oct. 04 and has been deemed “a worthy addition to the IT professional’s toolbox” – Macworld, December 04. The product also won the Editor’s Choice award from MacAddict magazine (April 05) where it was called “geekily cool and useful.”

The Disk Jockey “Forensic Kit” retails for $ 429 and includes the write-blocking Disk Jockey, SATA adapter and extended 2.5” and 3.5” cables. The standard Disk Jockey sans write blocking is available for $ 349. More information on the Disk Jockey or on Diskology, Inc., can be found at http://www.diskology.com.

ElcomSoft Updates Advanced Office Password Recovery with Forensic Technologies

ElcomSoft Updates Advanced Office Password Recovery with Forensic Technologies












Office Password Recovery

(Vocus) August 18, 2010

ElcomSoft Co. Ltd. releases a major update to Advanced Office Password Recovery, a Windows tool to remove document restrictions and recover passwords protecting Microsoft Office documents. This consumer package is upgraded with features and high-end technologies used in ElcomSoft’s forensic suite, including the patent-pending GPU acceleration, multi-CPU and multiple core support with zero scalability overhead, and simultaneous CPU/GPU operation. The latest release of Advanced Office Password Recovery adds MS Office 2010 support.

Background

Microsoft has strengthened password protection in Office 2007, further improving its strength in Office 2010. With computation-intensive encryption used in latest versions of Microsoft Office, password recovery tools relying solely on computer’s CPU are no longer able to provide reasonable recovery times.

Forensic Technologies Used in a Consumer Product Provide Accelerated Password Recovery

The newly updated Elcomsoft Advanced Office Password Recovery, in addition to Microsoft Office 2010 support, introduces the ability to use multiple CPUs and CPU cores found in modern computers, and further boosts recovery speeds by offloading resource-intensive computations onto graphic processors (GPU) found in modern video cards manufactured by ATI and NVIDIA. The proprietary GPU acceleration algorithm is patent-pending, and speeds up password recovery for Office 2007 and 2010 documents 20 to 40 times compared to Intel top of the line CPUs.

To further boost the recovery speed, Elcomsoft enables support for multiple video cards and simultaneous operation of all CPU and GPU cores. All or some CPU/GPU cores can be designated to the password recovery task, enabling maximum performance or allowing for nonintrusive background processing. Company’s zero overhead technology ensures linear scalability for the number of CPU and GPU cores installed.

These technologies were previously available in ElcomSoft’s high-end forensic solutions such as Elcomsoft Distributed Password Recovery. Today, these high-end technologies become available to homes and small offices for a fraction of the price of forensic products.

About Advanced Office Password Recovery

Elcomsoft Advanced Office Password Recovery unlocks documents created with all versions of Microsoft Office from version 2.0 to 2010. The tool recovers passwords for Microsoft Word, Excel, Access, Outlook, Project, Money, PowerPoint, Visio, Publisher, and OneNote. Instant password recovery is available for most Office products, while advanced dictionary attacks and brute-force password recovery are available to recover original passwords to open protecting Microsoft Office 97-2010 documents.

The tool exploits all known security issues discovered in Microsoft Office, and provides instant recovery for many types of documents. In addition, Advanced Office Password Recovery performs a completely automated preliminary attack that may recover passwords to documents in less than 10 minutes. Advanced users have the ability to fine-tune preliminary attacks to include passwords and rules most commonly used within a particular organization. The tool caches all previously recovered passwords, providing near-instant recovery for all documents using the same password.

Versions and Compatibility

Advanced Office Password Recovery supports Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista and Windows 7 with x32 and x64 architectures. Full product compatibility chart is available at Advanced Office Password Recovery page.

Advanced Office Password Recovery comes in three editions: Home, Standard, and Professional. The most affordable Home edition only supports a single CPU. The Standard edition supports up to 4 CPU units, and a single GPU unit. The Professional edition has no restrictions, and can use all CPU and GPU units installed. Pricing starts at $ 49 for the Home edition to $ 249 for the Professional edition.
