ITEM 1. DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS

On November 10, 2005, Cardiff International, Inc. (“Cardiff”), a Colorado corporation, acquired Legacy Card Company, Inc. (“Legacy”), a privately held Nevada corporation in a triangular merger transaction (the “Merger”). The effective date of the Merger was November 10, 2005. As a result of the Merger, Legacy is now a wholly owned subsidiary of Cardiff.

Legacy was formed as a California limited liability company in August 2001. In April 2005, Legacy was converted into a Nevada corporation.

The Plan of Merger provided for the issuance by Cardiff to the stockholders of Legacy of an aggregate of 18,000,000 shares of Cardiff common stock, no par value per share in connection with the Merger. As a result of the Merger, the former stockholders of Legacy are now the controlling stockholders of Cardiff. As part of the Merger, the officers and directors of Cardiff, resigned from their positions as officers and directors of Cardiff and the officers and directors of Legacy were appointed as officers and directors of Cardiff at the effective time of the Merger.

As a result of the Merger described above, on November 1, 2005 Legacy became a subsidiary of Cardiff.  Cardiff International, Inc. is the parent company for the Mission Tuition Rewards program, which is targeted to families focused on saving money for educational needs.

            In January 2006, Cardiff changed its fiscal year end to December 31st from September 30th.

Description of Business

Cardiff International, Inc., a tech company who has developed a proprietary software system to track and manage consumer purchases from unlimited businesses: service companies, retailers, merchants, health industry, insurance industry, most consumer orientated businesses. Our software infrastructure tracks all commissions, rebates, discounts providing the public the ability to track all savings regardless of what program they participate in as long as the program utilizes the Cardiff technology.

Cardiff’s first national program will be ready to launch in July 1, 2011 is “Mission Tuition” a rewards program that helps solve a real need for families – saving for education.  The Mission Tuition program is easy to understand and use, and is emotionally positioned to appeal to all consumers.  The Mission Tuition Rewards program will become the rewards program of preference for every day spending for families with young children.

The program leverages the two biggest economic forces in society – consumer spending and consumer savings –to create the most unique value-added rewards program in decades.

The potential success of the Mission Tuition program involves the participation of three groups: (i) Cardiff as the marketer, (ii) The merchant coalition, (iii) the member. As a result of our merchant coalition and cash rebate program we expect that the member will become loyal customers of the coalition merchants and participating banks.

      Participating merchants will provide a cash rebate on total purchases between 1% to 30% to our member’s educational savings account.  The retailer contribution can be supplemented by additional cash rebates by using the Mission Tuition MasterCard.  This issuing bank contribution is applicable no matter where the cardholder shops, therefore encouraging regular and daily usage of the Mission Tuition MasterCard.

The Mission Tuition program is expected to launch during the third quarter 2011.

What Is Mission Tuition

Mission Tuition is building one of the largest on-line shopping malls in America consisting of all the top name merchants; offering in-store savings and coupon savings with local, regional and national merchants throughout America. Each merchant providing savings and/or a cash rebate to our members educational account. Thousands of leading retailers are part of the rewards program.  Our tax-free educational savings program provides a platform for “educational savings” which encourages regular and daily use of the program. Cardiff’s Mission Tuition program helps families save for college.  Mission Tuition encourages members to contribute to their educational savings with contributions generated by on-line and in-store purchases. Mission Tuition also offers zip code shopping with proprietary software allowing the member to see what stores are offering the best cash-rebates and discounts within 10, 25 or 50 miles radius of their location.

The Mission Tuition MasterCard

The Mission Tuition MasterCard is a unique credit card that provides the user the opportunity to earn additional cash contributions anywhere MasterCard is honored.  Regardless a Mission Tuition merchant or not the user earns additional cash rewards on total spending.  Thousands leading retailers are part of our tuition rewards program. Contributions range from 1% to 30% on total purchases plus with the use of the Mission Tuition MasterCard users can earn additional cash rebates.
 
The Mission Tuition Card is the result of years of development, focus groups and other market research studies. Our brand, image, programming, sales and marketing have been carefully crafted to appeal to virtually every concerned American parent and grandparent, since our card addresses every family’s critical need -- saving for college -- and every family's fear -- not having enough when the time comes, to send junior to college.

Wells Fargo Bank

The Omnibus account will reside at Wells Fargo Bank. Cardholders who elect not to activate a 529 immediately will have the option to participate in Higher Educational Omnibus Savings program managed by Wells Fargo Bank. Once the cardholder reaches the required amount ($250 minimum in most states) Cardiff will notify Mission Tuition members they now qualify for their state’s 529 program providing them the necessary information to designate a State Fund Manager.

Omnibus Account

Cardiff opened an account with Wells Fargo Bank so all cash rebates will go directly into this account prior to any transfer to a 529 State Managed account.

State Managed 529 Plans

Each state has entered into a contractual agreement with accredited fund managers (i.e.) Alliance Bernstein, JP Morgan, CIAA-CREF, Wells Fargo, etc. to manage and administer their 529 programs.

Description of Section 529 Plans
 
Section 529 plans were authorized by congress to provide tax incentives savings for qualified higher education expenses (QHEE). Earnings in 529 plans are tax-free if withdrawals are made for QHEE, otherwise there is a 10% penalty on the earnings, which are taxed at ordinary rates. Although nonqualified withdrawals are subject to a 10% penalty on the earnings, taxes on the earnings are deferred until withdrawal. Federal legislation passed in 1996 allows states to create section 529 plans.
 
Section 529 plans are of two types. One is a tuition credit plan and the other is a savings plan. Section 529 provides that qualified state tuition programs shall be exempt from taxation. Such plans must be established and maintained by a State agency or instrumentality thereof. Most states have outsourced the management of their programs to investment advisory or financial service firms. While each state has its own specific requirements, the salient requirements applicable to all plans are:

1. Only cash contributions are allowed.
 
2. There must be separate accounting for each designated beneficiary.
 
3. There may be no investment direction by any contributor to, or designated beneficiary under, such program. The account owner may choose among several broad-based investment options once per year.
 
4. No interest in the program may be used as security for a loan.
 
5. The program must provide adequate safeguards to prevent contributions on behalf of a designated beneficiary in excess of those necessary to provide for the QHEE of the beneficiary.
 
6. There must be a penalty imposed on distributions from an account that are not used for QHEE, except death or disability of the designated beneficiary, or to the extent the designated beneficiary receives a scholarship.
 

 
 
5

 
 
 
QHEE include tuition, fees, books, supplies, and equipment required for the enrollment or attendance of a designated beneficiary at an eligible educational institution. Reasonable costs for room and board are also QHEE for students who are enrolled at least half-time. An eligible educational institution is one which is described in section 481 of the Higher Education Act of 1965 (20 U.S. C. 1088) and which is eligible to participate in a program under Title IV of such act. The designated beneficiary is the individual designated at the commencement of the participation in the qualified state tuition program. If the designated beneficiary is changed, the new beneficiary must be a member of the original designated beneficiary’s family (as defined in the code) to avoid treatment as a nonqualified withdrawal.

Launching  Mission Tuition
 
Cardiff International, Inc. is poised to achieve spectacular success. With over five years of investment, hard work, and hard learning, we believe that our company has the contractual arrangements, functional abilities, and most significantly, the revolutionary “best widget” that has ever been actualized in our sphere.  Tying together these factors, we are pleased to offer our partners an undeniable business model.
 
Cardiff Merchant Coalition
 
As of December 31, 2008, approximately 3,000 businesses were part of the Cardiff Merchant Coalition, with multiple locations throughout America.

Issuer of the  Mission Tuition MasterCard
 
Currently in negotiations with several issuing banks.

Various Agreements
 
In connection with the activities related to the Mission Tuition Rewards program Cardiff has entered into two agreements with merchant providers.  It is intended that each of these providers will continue to provide services to Cardiff which will aid in the marketing of the Mission Tuition.

Employees
 
Cardiff currently has two  employees but anticipates it will hire additional personnel as the Mission Tuition program is launched.
 
Overview of Cardiff Prior to the Merger

Prior to the Merger Cardiff was an inactive, publicly held, SEC reporting company. Cardiff was incorporated under the laws of the State of Colorado under the name “Cardiff Financial, Inc.,” on October 14, 1986. Effective April 1989, Cardiff completed an acquisition transaction with, and changed its name to, United American, Inc. The transaction was subsequently rescinded and on December 4, 1989, Cardiff changed its name from United American, Inc., to Cardiff International, Inc. Since that time, Cardiff has been a shell corporation seeking to commence active business operations by acquiring a business opportunity.
 
Immediately prior to the Merger with Legacy, there were approximately 725,000 shares of Cardiff common stock issued and outstanding. Following the Merger, there were approximately 19,900,000 shares of Cardiff common stock issued and outstanding.
 
Legacy Acquisition Corp. (“LAC”) was a Nevada corporation, which prior to the Merger, was a wholly-owned subsidiary of Cardiff.  LAC was formed solely to facilitate the Merger. As a result of the Merger, LAC was merged into Legacy and no longer exists as of the effective time of the Merger.

ITEM 1A.    Risk Factors

Operating History:. We have not commenced active business operations. We anticipate we will commence active operations during the third quarter of 2011. Potential investors should be aware that there is only a limited basis upon which to evaluate our prospects for achieving our intended business objectives. We have limited resources and have had no revenues since our formation.
 
Possibility of Total Loss of Investment: An investment in Cardiff is an extremely high risk investment, and should not be made unless the investor has no need for current income from the invested funds and unless the investor can afford a total loss of his or her investment.

Additional Financing Requirements: We will likely be required to seek additional financing in order to fund our operations and carry out our business plan. In order to fund our operations and effect additional acquisitions, we will be required to obtain additional capital. There can be no assurance that such financing will be available on acceptable terms, or at all. We do not have any arrangements with any bank or financial institution to secure additional financing and there can be no assurance that any such arrangement, if required or otherwise sought, would be available on terms deemed to be commercially acceptable and in our best interest.

No Public Market for Securities: There is no active public market for our common stock and we can give no assurance that an active market will develop, or if developed, that it will be sustained.

Auditor’s Opinion has a Going Concern Qualification: Our auditor’s report dated June 9, 2011 for the years ended December 31, 2008 and 2007 and for the period from August 29, 2001 (date of inception) through December 31, 2008 includes a going concern qualification which states that our significant recurring operating losses and negative working capital raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.

We do not anticipate paying any dividends and any gains from your investment in our stock will have to come from increases in the price of such stock: We currently intend to retain any future earnings for use in our business and do not anticipate paying any cash dividends in the foreseeable future.

We Operate in a Competitive Market: The credit card industry is competitive and new offerings and technologies are becoming available regularly. We cannot guarantee that we will compete successfully against our potential competitors, especially those with significantly greater financial resources or brand name recognition.

ITEM 1B.  Unresolved Staff Comments

Not Applicable.

ITEM 2.   PROPERTIES

Currently, Cardiff has not entered into any lease agreement for office facilities. Cardiff is currently using facilities in Encino, California, Las Vegas, Nevada and Chicago, Illinois.

PART II

ITEM 5.   MARKET FOR THE REGISTRANT’S COMMON STOCK AND RELATED SECURITY HOLDER MATTERS

Our common stock is quoted on the OTC “Bulletin Board” under the symbol “CDIF”. During the last three years, there has only been limited trading in our common stock.

As of December 31, 2008, there were 49,473,683 shares of common stock outstanding and approximately 710 stockholders of record of common stock.

Shares Issued in Unregistered Transactions

We issued shares of our common stock in unregistered transactions during 2005. All of the shares of common stock issued were issued in non-registered transactions in reliance on Section 4(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). As a result of the Merger, Cardiff issued 18,000,000 shares of its common stock to the shareholders of Legacy pursuant to the terms of the Plan of Merger.

No underwriter or placement agent was involved in the above referenced transactions. Cardiff is relying on the exemption from registration provided by Section 4(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, (the “Securities Act”), and Rule 506 of Regulation D promulgated by the Securities Act.

Dividends

We have not paid cash dividends since our inception and do not anticipate paying dividends in the foreseeable future.

Recent Purchases of Securities

None

Limitation on Directors’ Liability, Charter Provisions and Other Matters

Colorado law authorizes corporations to limit or eliminate the personal liability of directors to corporations and their stockholders for monetary damages for breach of directors’ fiduciary duty of care. The duty of care requires that, when acting on behalf of the corporation, directors must exercise an informed business judgment based on all material information reasonably available to them. Absent the limitations authorized by Colorado law, directors are accountable to corporations and their stockholders for monetary damages for conduct constituting gross negligence in the exercise of their duty of care. Colorado law enables corporations to limit available relief to equitable remedies such as injunction or rescission. Our Certificate of Incorporation limits the liability of our directors to us or to our stockholders (in their capacity as directors but not in their capacity as officers) to the fullest extent permitted by Colorado law.

The inclusion of this provision in the Certificate of Incorporation may have the effect of reducing the likelihood of derivative litigation against directors and may discourage or deter stockholders or management from bringing a lawsuit against directors for breach of their duty of care, even though such an action, if successful, might otherwise have benefited the Company and its stockholders.

Our Bylaws provide indemnification to our officers and directors and certain other persons with respect to certain matters. Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the 1933 Act may be permitted to our directors and officers, we have been advised that in the opinion of the Securities and Exchange Commission, such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the 1933 Act and is, therefore, unenforceable.

Transfer Agent and Registrar

Our transfer agent is Standard Registrar and Transfer, 12528 South 1840 East, Draper, Utah 84020; Tel: (801) 571-8844.

ITEM 6.  SELECTED FINANCIAL DATA

Not applicable.

ITEM 7.  MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

The following discussion should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto appearing elsewhere in this Form 10-K. All statements contained herein that are not historical facts, including, but not limited to, statements regarding anticipated future capital requirements, our future plan of operations, our ability to obtain debt, equity or other financing, and our ability to generate cash from operations, are based on current expectations. These statements are forward-looking in nature and involve a number of risks and uncertainties that may cause the Company’s actual results in future periods to differ materially from forecasted results.

Overview

Cardiff International, Inc. (“Cardiff”) acquired Legacy Card Company, Inc. (“Legacy”) in a merger transaction in November 2005. The transaction was accounted for as a reverse merger transaction whereby Legacy, although a subsidiary of Cardiff, was deemed to be the surviving entity for accounting purposes. In January 2006, Cardiff changed its fiscal year end to December 31st from September 30th to have the same year-end as Legacy.

Cardiff International, Inc., a tech company who has developed a proprietary software system to track and manage consumer purchases from unlimited businesses: service companies, retailers, merchants, health industry, insurance industry, most consumer orientated businesses. Our software infrastructure tracks all commissions, rebates, discounts providing the public the ability to track all savings regardless of what program they participate in as long as the program utilizes the Cardiff technology.

Critical Accounting Policies

The discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations is based upon our financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP). GAAP require management to make estimates, judgments and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. We base our estimates on experience and on various other assumptions that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that may not be readily apparent from other sources. On an on-going basis, we evaluate the appropriateness of our estimates and we maintain a thorough process to review the application of our accounting policies. Our actual results may differ from these estimates.

We consider our critical accounting estimates to be those that (1) involve significant judgments and uncertainties, (2) require estimates that are more difficult for management to determine, and (3) may produce materially different results when using different assumptions. We have discussed these critical accounting estimates, the basis for their underlying assumptions and estimates and the nature of our related disclosures herein with the audit committee of our Board of Directors. We believe our accounting policies related to income taxes, share-based compensation expense, and estimation of the fair value of derivative liabilities involve our most significant judgments and estimates that are material to our consolidated financial statements. They are discussed further below.

Income Taxes

Income taxes are accounted for under the asset and liability method. Under this method, to the extent that we believe that the deferred tax asset is not likely to be recovered, a valuation allowance is provided. In making this determination, we consider estimated future taxable income and taxable timing differences expected to reverse in the future. Actual results may differ from those estimates.

Share-based Compensation Expense

Commencing January 1, 2006, we implemented changes that the FASB issued related to the accounting for employee stock options, on a modified-prospective basis, to recognize share-based compensation for employee stock option awards in our statements of operations. We account for the issuance of stock, stock options and warrants for services based on the estimated fair value of options and warrants using the Black-Scholes pricing model. This model’s calculations include the exercise price, the market price of shares on grant date, weighted average assumptions for risk-free interest rates, expected life of the option or warrant, expected volatility of our stock and expected dividend yield. The amounts recorded in the financial statements for share-based expense could vary significantly based on the subjective assumptions used in the pricing model.

We account for the issuance of stock, stock options and warrants for services from non-employees based on an estimate of the fair value of options and warrants issued using the Black-Scholes pricing model. This model’s calculations include the exercise price, the market price of shares on grant date, weighted average assumptions for risk-free interest rates, expected life of the option or warrant, expected volatility of our stock and expected dividend yield. The amounts recorded in the financial statements for share-based expense could vary significantly if we were to use different assumptions.

Year Ended December 31, 2008 Compared to the Year Ended December 31, 2007

The Company had no operating revenues for the years ended December 31, 2008 or 2007.

The Company had operating expenses of $1,884,353 for the year ended December 31, 2008 compared to $690,979 for the year ended December 31, 2007, representing an increase of $1,193,374. This increase was primarily a result increases in advertising/marketing, outside services /consultants, professional fees, two officers ceasing their salary waiver in the 4th quarter of 2008, and offset by decreases in salaries. These factors resulted in a net loss of $1,896,782 for the year ended December 31, 2008 compared to $788,596 for the year ended December 31, 2007, representing an increase of $1,108,186.

Other income (expenses) decreased $85,188 from 2007 to 2008 primarily because the company incurred an expense of $228,492 in interest expense during 2008 which was offset by the change in value of derivative liability of $192,628 during 2008.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Since inception, the principal sources of cash have been funds raised from the sale of common stock, advances from shareholders, and loans in the form of debentures and convertible notes. At December 31, 2008, we had $994 of cash and cash equivalents, and total assets amounted to $4,657. At December 31, 2007 we had no cash and cash equivalents, and total assets amounted to $4,362.

Net cash used in operating activities was $176,980 and $763,206 for the years ended December 31, 2008 and 2007, respectively. The decrease in the amount of net cash used in operating activities during these periods was attributable to issuance of common stock for services, accrual of officers salaries and accrual of the loan discount of the convertible note and related change in value on the derivative liability which were offset by the net loss.
 
Net cash provided by financing activities was $177,974 and $756,775 for the years ended December 31, 2008 and 2007, respectively. The cash flows from financing activities during the year end December 31, 2008 was attributable to proceeds from the sale of common stock of $ 201,000 and proceeds from notes payable of $150,000. In addition, we received $40,560 and repaid $207,288 of shareholder advances during the year ended December 31, 2008.
 
Since inception, we have incurred operating losses and, at December 31, 2008 we had an accumulated deficit of $9,484,763.

Current liabilities at December 31, 2008 consisted primarily of accounts payable, accrued expenses and accrued payroll of $968,963, amounts due to shareholders of $22,473, accrued officers’ salaries of $150,000, derivative liability of $29,947, convertible and non-convertible promissory notes net of loan discount in the amount of $768,000, and accrued interest in the amount of $360,780. Current liabilities at December 31, 2007 consisted primarily of accounts payable and accrued payroll $839,597, amounts due to shareholders of $179,620, convertible and non-convertible promissory notes in the amount of $668,000, a subscription payable of $179,380, and accrued interest in the amount of $242,783.

Gary R. Teel and Daniel Thompson, the officers and directors of the Company, have each entered into employment agreements for a monthly salary of $25,000 ($300,000 annually); however, both have waived their unpaid salaries through September 30, 2008. Commencing October 1, 2008, the Company began accruing for these salaries at a rate of $50,000 per month. This waiver of salary, when in effect, not only reduced our operating expenses and net loss, it reduced the amount of capital needed to fund operations. During the year ended December 31, 2008, $118,288 was repaid to Mr. Teel and $89,000 was repaid to Mr. Thompson on outstanding advances. In addition, Mr. Teel advanced the Company $24,273 and Mr. Thompson advanced the Company $16,287 during the year ended December 31, 2008.

There can be no assurance that we will be able to obtain sufficient capital from debt or equity transactions or from operations in the necessary time frame or on terms acceptable to us. Should we be unable to raise sufficient funds, we may be required to curtail our operating plans and possibly relinquish rights to portions of our technology or products. In addition, increases in expenses or delays in product development may adversely impact our cash position and may require cost reductions. No assurance can be given that we will be able to operate profitably on a consistent basis, or at all, in the future.

In order to continue our operations, development of our products, and implementation of our business plan, we need additional financing. We are currently attempting to obtain additional working capital. Additionally, we anticipate that our credit card will launch in the third quarter of 2011, thereby commencing the generation of revenues shortly thereafter. Finally, we also anticipate that we will continue to operate at a loss for the foreseeable future.

Plan of Operation

Our current business plan is described in “Item 1 - Description of Business”.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED
PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM




To the Board of Directors
Cardiff International, Inc. dba Legacy Card Company

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Cardiff International, Inc. dba Legacy Card Company (a development stage Company) (the “Company”) as of December 31, 2008 and 2007 and the related consolidated statements of operations, shareholders’ equity (deficit) and cash flows for the years then ended and for the period from August 29, 2001 (date of inception) through December 31, 2008. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits.
 
We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards established by the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audits to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. Our audits included consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.
 
In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Cardiff International, Inc. dba Legacy Card Company as of December 31, 2008 and 2007, and the results of its operations and cash flows for the years then ended and for the period from August 29, 2001 (date of inception) through December 31, 2008, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 1 to the consolidated financial statements, the Company is in the development stage and has sustained operating losses since its inception and has negative working capital and an accumulated deficit during the years ended December 31, 2008 and 2007. These conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. Management's plans regarding those matters also are described in Note 1. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

Legacy Card Company was formed as a Limited Liability Company on August 29, 2001. On April 18, 2005, the Company converted from a California Limited Liability Company to a Nevada Corporation. On November 10, 2005, the Company merged with Cardiff International, Inc. (“Cardiff”), a publicly held corporation. The purpose of the Company is to develop a co-marketing agreement with a premier national bank to offer an integrated financial program to consumers.  Cardiff International, Inc., is a tech company who has developed a proprietary software system to track and manage consumer purchases from unlimited businesses: service companies, retailers, merchants, health industry, insurance industry, most consumer orientated businesses. Our software infrastructure tracks all commissions, rebates, discounts providing the public the ability to track all savings regardless of what program they participate in as long as the program utilizes the Cardiff technology. 
 
The Company will derive its revenues from merchant commissions, interest earned on member’s savings accounts as well as credit card activation fees, commission earned on all transactions, renewal fee and interest earned on revolving credit balances.   The Company expects to commence the launch of Mission Tuition in the fall of 2011.
 
Development Stage Activities
The Company is focusing its efforts in two areas during the development stage.  First, the Company is devoting substantial time to the development of credit card technology software, which will be used to capture information at the credit card transaction level.  Second, the Company is working to contract with merchants to participate in the program and add incentives for consumers to both use the credit card and make purchases from these merchants.

Going Concern
The accompanying financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis of accounting, which contemplates continuity of operations, realization of assets and liabilities and commitments in the normal course of business.  The Company is in the development stage and as such has sustained operating losses since its inception and has negative working capital and an accumulated deficit. These factors raise substantial doubts about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The accompanying financial statements do not reflect any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts or the amounts and classifications of liabilities that might result if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern and appropriateness of using the going concern basis is dependent upon, among other things, additional cash infusions.  Management has prospective investors and believes the raising of capital will allow the Company to pursue the development of its credit card business. Should the Company not be able to rise sufficient funds, they may cease their operations.

Cash and Cash Equivalents
The Company considers all highly liquid investments with an original maturity of three (3) months or less to be cash equivalents.

Advertising Costs
Advertising costs are charged to expense when incurred.  During the years ended December 31, 2008 and 2007, the amount charged to expense was $180,000 and $0, respectively.  From inception through December 31, 2008, advertising costs was $543,800.

Use of Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect certain reported amounts and disclosures.  Management uses its historical records and knowledge of its business in making estimates.  Accordingly, actual results could differ from those estimates.

Valuation of Derivative Instruments

FASB ASC 815-10, Derivatives and Hedging, requires that embedded derivative instruments be bifurcated and assessed, along with free-standing derivative instruments such as warrants, on their issuance date and in accordance with EITF 00-19 “Accounting for Derivative Financial Instruments Indexed to, and Potentially Settled in, a Company’s Own Stock” to determine whether they would be considered a derivative liability and measured at their fair value for accounting purposes. In determining the appropriate fair value, the Company uses the Black-Scholes pricing model. At December 31, 2008, the Company adjusted its derivative liability to its fair value and reflected the decrease in fair value of $192,628 as other income on the Consolidated Statement of Operations.

Fair Value Measurements

Fair value is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. Assets and liabilities recorded at fair value in the consolidated balance sheets are categorized based upon the level of judgment associated with the inputs used to measure their fair value. The fair value hierarchy distinguishes between (1) market participant assumptions developed based on market data obtained from independent sources (observable inputs) and (2) an entity’s own assumptions about market participant assumptions developed based on the best information available in the circumstances (unobservable inputs). The fair value hierarchy consists of three broad levels, which gives the highest priority to unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (Level 1) and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs (Level 3). The three levels of the fair value hierarchy are described below:

Level Input:
 
Input Definition:         
     
Level 1
 
Inputs are unadjusted, quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in
   
active markets at the measurement date.
Level 2
 
Inputs, other than quoted prices included in Level I, that are observable
   
for the asset or liability through corroboration with market data at the
   
measurement date.
Level 3
 
Unobservable inputs that reflect management's best estimate of what
   
market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability at the
   
measurement date.
 
The following table summarizes fair value measurements by level at December 31, 2008 for assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis:
     
Level 1
   
Level 2
   
Level 3
   
Total
 
 
Derivative liability
  $ -     $ -     $ 29,947     $ 29,947  
 
The carrying amounts reported on the balance sheet of accounts payable and other accrued expenses approximate fair value due to their relatively short maturity. The carrying amount of notes payable and advances from shareholders approximate fair value based on prevailing interest rates.

Stock Based Compensation
The Company accounts for stock options in accordance with guidance issued by the FASB using the modified prospective method. Under this method, compensation cost recognized during fiscal years 2008 and 2007 includes: (a) compensation cost for all share-based payments granted prior to, but not yet vested as of January 1, 2006, based on the grant-date fair value estimated in accordance with guidance issued by the FASB amortized over the options' vesting period, and (b) compensation cost for all share-based payments granted subsequent to January 1, 2006, based on the grant-date fair value estimated in accordance with guidance issued by the FASB amortized on a straight-line basis over the options' vesting period. Stock-based compensation was $0 for the years ended December 31, 2008 and 2007 and $122,740 from August 29, 2011 (date of inception) through December 31, 2008.

Property and Equipment
Property and equipment are carried at cost.  Expenditures for major renewals and betterments that extend the useful lives of property and equipment are capitalized.  Expenditures for maintenance and repairs are charged to expense as incurred. Depreciation and amortization of property and equipment is provided using the straight-line method for financial reporting purposes at rates based on the following estimated useful lives:
 
   
Years
Artwork
 
7
Computer equipment
 
3
Domain and software
 
3
Furniture and fixtures
 
5
Office equipment

Leasehold improvements
 
life of lease
 
During the years ended December 31, 2008 and 2007, depreciation expense was $699 and $13,023, respectively.

Income Taxes
The Company was treated as a partnership for federal income tax purposes up to April 18, 2005, when it converted to a Nevada Corporation.  Consequently, federal income taxes were not payable by, or provided for, the Company.  Members were taxed individually on their shares of the Company’s earnings.  The Company’s net income or loss was allocated among the members in accordance with the regulations of the Company since April 18, 2005, when the Company was incorporated, the Company accounts for income taxes under the liability method, which requires the recognition of deferred tax assets and liabilities for the expected future tax consequences of events that have been included in the financial statements or tax returns. Under this method, deferred income taxes are recognized for the tax consequences in future years of differences between the tax bases of assets and liabilities and their financial reporting amounts at each period end based on enacted tax laws and statutory tax rates applicable to the periods in which the differences are expected to affect taxable income. Valuation allowances are established, when necessary, to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount expected to be realized. The provision for income taxes, if any, represents the tax payable for the period and the change during the period in deferred tax assets and liabilities.

Earnings (Loss) per Share
The Company reports its earnings (loss) per share in accordance with guidance issued by the FASB. Basic earnings per share is computed by dividing income available to common shareholders by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding. Diluted earnings per share is computed similar to basic earnings per share except that the denominator is increased to include the number of additional common shares that would have been outstanding if the potential common shares had been issued and if the additional common shares were dilutive. Common equivalent shares are excluded from the computation if their effect is anti-dilutive.

Principles of Consolidation

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Cardiff International, Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiary, Legacy Card Company. All significant intercompany accounts and transactions are eliminated in consolidation.

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

In September 2006, the FASB issued SFAS 157 (ASC Topic 820), Fair Value Measurements, which defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value in GAAP, and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. The Statement is effective for financial statements issued for fiscal years beginning after November 15, 2007, and interim periods within those fiscal years. In February 2008, FASB Staff Position (FSP) FAS 157-2, Effective Date of FASB Statement No. 157, which delays the effective date of SFAS 157 to fiscal years and interim periods within those fiscal years beginning after November 15, 2008 for non-financial assets and non-financial liabilities, except for items that are recognized or disclosed at fair value in the financial statements on a recurring basis (at least annually). We elected to defer the adoption of the Standard for these non-financial assets and liabilities, and are currently evaluating the impact, if any, that the deferred provisions of the Standard will have on our consolidated financial statements. Because we did not elect to apply the fair value accounting option, the adoption of SFAS 157 for our financial assets and liabilities did not have an impact on our financial position or operating results.
 
In December 2007, the FASB issued SFAS No. 141(R) (ASC Topic 805), Business Combinations, and SFAS No. 160 (ASC Topic 810), Accounting and Reporting of Noncontrolling Interests in Consolidated Financial Statements, an amendment of ARB No. 51. These new standards will significantly change the financial accounting and reporting of business combination transactions and noncontrolling (or minority) interests in consolidated financial statements. SFAS 141(R) is required to be adopted concurrently with SFAS 160 and is effective for business combination transactions for which the acquisition date is on or after the beginning of the first annual reporting period beginning on or after December 15, 2008. Early adoption is prohibited. We do not anticipate that the adoption of this accounting pronouncement will have a material effect on our consolidated financial statements.
 
In February 2007, the FASB issued SFAS No. 159 (ASC Topic 825), The Fair Value Option for Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities-Including an Amendment of FASB Statement No. 115, which is effective for us in fiscal years beginning after July 1, 2008. This statement permits an entity to choose to measure many financial instruments and certain other items at fair value at specified election dates. Subsequent unrealized gains and losses on items for which the fair value option has been elected will be reported in earnings. We do not anticipate that the adoption of this accounting pronouncement will have a material effect on our consolidated financial statements.

In March 2008, the FASB issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standards ("SFAS") No. 161 (ASC Topic 815), Disclosures about Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities, an amendment of FASB Statement No. 133. SFAS No. 161 requires enhanced disclosures about a company's derivative and hedging activities. These enhanced disclosures will discuss (a) how and why a company uses derivative instruments, (b) how derivative instruments and related hedged items are accounted for under FASB Statement No. 133 and its related interpretations and (c) how derivative instruments and related hedged items affect a company's financial position, results of operations and cash flows. SFAS No. 161 is effective for fiscal years beginning on or after November 15, 2008, with earlier adoption allowed. We do not anticipate that the adoption of this accounting pronouncement will have a material effect on our consolidated financial statements.

In June 2009 the FASB established the Accounting Standards Codification ("Codification" or "ASC") as the source of authoritative accounting principles recognized by the FASB to be applied by nongovernmental entities in the preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"). Rules and interpretive releases of the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") issued under authority of federal securities laws are also sources of GAAP for SEC registrants. Existing GAAP was not intended to be changed as a result of the Codification, and accordingly the change will not impact our financial statements. The ASC does change the way the guidance is organized and presented.

In February 2010, the FASB issued ASU 2010-09, “Subsequent Events, Amendments to Certain Recognition and Disclosure Requirements” which made a number of changes to the existing requirements to the FASB Accounting Standards Codification 855 Subsequent Events. The amended guidance was effective upon issuance and as a result of the amendments, SEC filers that file financial statements after February 24, 2010 are not required to disclose the date through which subsequent events have been evaluated.

In January 2010, the FASB issued ASU 2010-06, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures: Improving Disclosures about Fair Value Measurements” which is intended to enhance the usefulness of fair value measurements by requiring both the disaggregation of the information in certain existing disclosures, as well as the inclusion of more robust disclosures about valuation techniques and inputs to recurring and non-recurring fair value measurements. The amended guidance is effective for interim and annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2009, except for the disaggregation requirement for the reconciliation disclosure of Level 3 measurements, which is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 31, 2010 and for interim periods within those years. This ASU is not expected to have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

In January 2010, the FASB issued ASU 2010-02, “Accounting and Reporting for Decreases in Ownership of a Subsidiary – Scope Clarification” which is intended to clarify which transactions require a decrease in ownership provisions particularly for non-controlling interests in consolidated financial statements. In addition, it requires increased disclosures about deconsolidation of a subsidiary. It requires retrospective application and is effective for the first interim or annual periods ending on or after December 15, 2009. Adoption of this ASU is not expected to have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

In January 2010, the FASB issued ASU 2020-01 “Accounting for Distributions to Shareholders with Components of Stock and Cash” which is intended to clarify the accounting treatment for a stock portion of a shareholder distribution that (1) contains both cash and stock components, (2) allows shareholders to select their preferred form of distribution, and (3) limits the total amount of cash to be distributed. It defines a stock dividend as a dividend that takes nothing from the property of an entity and adds nothing to the interests of an entity’s shareholders because the proportional interest of each shareholder remains the same. The stock portion of the distribution must be treated as a stock issuance and be reflected in the EPS calculation prospectively. It requires retrospective application and is effective for annual periods ending on or after December 15, 2009. Adoption of this ASU is not expected to have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

In August 2009, the FASB issued ASU 2009-15, which changes the fair value accounting for liabilities. These changes clarify existing guidance that in circumstances in which a quoted price in an active market for the identical liability is not available, an entity is required to measure fair value using either a valuation technique that uses a quoted price of either a similar liability or a quoted price of an identical or similar liability when traded as an asset, or another valuation technique that is consistent with the principles of fair value measurements, such as an income approach (e.g., present value technique). This guidance also states that both a quoted price in an active market for the identical liability and a quoted price for the identical liability when traded as an asset in an active market when no adjustments to the quoted price of the asset are required are Level 1 fair value measurements. This ASU will be adopted effective on January 1, 2010 and we do not expect it will have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

4.         COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
 
Operating Leases
In July 2006, the Company assumed auto leases for the two officers of the Company, of which one expired in July 2008 and the other expired in June 2009.   The Company is expected to pay future minimum rental payments under the leases in the amount of $11,359 during 2009.

Lease expense for the years ended December 31, 2008 and 2007 was $48,390 and $18,751, respectively.  From inception through December 31, 2008, rent expense was $459,976.

Litigation
On June 2, 2005, the Company went to trial for a complaint filed by a prior officer of the Company, alleging that his employment was not terminated in January 2002, and claiming back wages.  The Court issued a ruling and order that found that the officer was entitled to back pay.  On September 15, 2006, the Company reached a settlement with the prior officer of the Company in the amount of $225,000, payable in monthly installments of $25,000, which resulted in a gain of $36,958.  The unpaid amount balance amounted to $156,250 at December 31, 2006. The remaining balance due was paid in 2007.

Payroll Taxes
The Company has failed to remit payroll tax payments since 2006, as required by various taxing authorities. When payment is ultimately made management believes that the Company will be assessed various penalties for the delayed payments. As of December 31, 2008, management was unable to estimate the amount of penalties that the Company would incur as a result of these unpaid taxes.

Cash Deposits
The Company maintains its cash at a financial institution which may at times exceed federally insured limits. The Company had no uninsured deposits as of December 31, 2008.

5.         RECAPITALIZATION

In November 2005, Legacy Card consummated a transaction, pursuant to which Cardiff International, Inc. acquired all the outstanding shares of Legacy Card, with Legacy Card surviving as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Cardiff International.  Legacy Card recorded this transaction as a recapitalization followed by the issuance of shares to the shareholders of Cardiff International.  Prior to the recapitalization transaction, Cardiff International was not an operating company, and had no assets.  Under the terms of the transaction, Cardiff International issued 18,000,000 shares of Cardiff International common stock to the former shareholders of Legacy Card in exchange for all the outstanding shares of Legacy Card.

6.         INCOME TAXES

At December 31, 2008, the Company has net operating loss carryforwards available for federal tax purposes. Because of statutory “ownership changes” the amount of net operating losses which may be utilized in future years are subject to significant annual limitations. The Company also has operating loss carryforwards available for state tax purposes. As of December 31, 2008 management is still determining the amount of net operating loss carryforwards that are available to offset federal and state taxable income and their respective expiration dates.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
DECEMBER 31, 2008 AND 2007
 

As December 31, 2008 and 2007, total deferred income tax assets consist principally of net operating loss carryforwards which have been fully reduced by a valuation allowance due to the uncertainty surrounding their ultimate realization.
 
The Company has adopted guidance issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) that clarifies the accounting for uncertainty in income taxes recognized in an enterprise's financial statements and prescribes a recognition threshold of more likely than not and a measurement process for financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. In making this assessment, a company must determine whether it is more likely than not that a tax position will be sustained upon examination, based solely on the technical merits of the position and must assume that the tax position will be examined by taxing authorities. Our policy is to include interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits in income tax expense. There were no interest and penalties for the years ended December 31, 2008 and 2007, respectively. The Company files income tax returns with the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) and various states. For jurisdictions in which tax filings are prepared, the Company is no longer subject to income tax examinations by state tax authorities for tax years through 2003, and by the IRS for tax years through 2004. The Company’s net operating loss carryforwards are subject to IRS examination until they are fully utilized and such tax years are closed. As of December 31, 2008 the Company has not filed all statutory filings.

ITEM 9. CHANGES IN AND DISAGREEMENTS WITH ACCOUNTANTS ON ACCOUNTING AND FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE

None.

ITEM 9A. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

     Under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, we have evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as required by Exchange Act Rule 13a-15(b) as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based on that evaluation, the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer have concluded that these disclosure controls and procedures are ineffective.

As described below under Management's Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting, our management has identified and reported to our audit committee and Rose, Snyder & Jacobs, our independent registered public accounting firm, material weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting. As a result of these material weaknesses, our CEO and CFO have concluded that, as of December 31, 2008, our internal controls over financial reporting were not effective.

Report of Management on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting for the Company. Internal control over financial reporting is a process to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of our financial reporting for external purposes in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. Internal control over financial reporting includes maintaining records that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect our transactions; providing reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary for preparation of our financial statements; providing reasonable assurance that receipts and expenditures of company assets are made in accordance with management authorization; and providing reasonable assurance that unauthorized acquisition, use or disposition of company assets that could have a material effect on our financial statements would be prevented or detected on a timely basis. Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting is not intended to provide absolute assurance that a misstatement of our financial statements would be prevented or detected.

Management conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting based on the framework in Internal Control – Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission. Based on this evaluation, management concluded that the company’s internal control over financial reporting was ineffective as of December 31, 2008. There were no significant changes in our internal control over financial reporting during the year ended December 31, 2008 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

This annual report does not include an attestation report of the company’s registered public accounting firm regarding internal controls over financial reporting.  Management’s report was not subject to attestation by the company’s registered public accounting firm pursuant to temporary rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission that permit the company to provide only management’s report in this annual report.
 
 
31

 

 
Ineffective controls over the accounting for cash disbursements

Management has not obtained or maintained documentation supporting all cash disbursements.  This control deficiency arose during the year ended December 31, 2007 and was identified by management during the annual evaluation of the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting.

Ineffective controls over the recording of equity transactions
 
Management does not have an adequate process to ensure that all equity transactions are properly recorded in a timely manner.
 
Lack of segregation of duties and ineffective review process

Management does not have proper segregation of duties and does not have an effective review process in place.
 
Lack of oversight by Audit Committee
 
The Company does not have a functioning audit committee due to a lack of independent members and a lack of outside directors on our board of directors, resulting in ineffective oversight in the establishment and monitoring of required internal controls, approvals and procedures.

 
Item 9B.  Other Information.

Not Applicable.

Audit Committee – Pre-Approval
 
All services provided to the Company by Rose, Snyder & Jacobs as detailed above, were pre-approved by the Board of Directors and all work of said firm was performed solely by their permanent employees.
 
The Securities and Exchange Commission adopted rules that require that before Rose Snyder & Jacobs is engaged by us to render any auditing or permitted non-audit related services, the engagement must be:
 
·  
approved by our Audit Committee (our entire Board serves as our audit committee); or
·  
entered into pursuant to pre-approval policies and procedures established by the Audit Committee, provided the policies and procedures are detailed as to the particular service, the Audit Committee is informed of each service, and such policies and procedures do not include delegation of the Audit Committee’s responsibilities to management.

Under the direction of our Chairman, Gary Teel, our Board of Directors, acting as our audit committee, pre-approves all services provided by our independent auditors. All of the above services and fees were reviewed and approved by the Board of Directors either before or after the respective services were rendered. The Board of Directors has considered the nature and amount of fees billed by Rose Snyder & Jacobs and believes that the provision of services for activities unrelated to the audit is compatible with maintaining the firm’s independence.
