A summary of significant accounting policies of Western Lucrative Enterprises, Inc. (A Development Stage Company) (the Company) is presented to assist in understanding the Companys financial statements. The accounting policies presented in these footnotes conform to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America and have been consistently applied in the preparation of the accompanying financial statements. These financial statements and notes are representations of the Companys management who are responsible for their integrity and objectivity. The Company has not realized revenues from its planned principal business purpose and is considered to be in its development state in accordance with ASC 915, Development Stage Entities.
Organization, Nature of Business and Trade Name
The Company was incorporated in the State of Iowa on July 14, 2008 and has as a principal business objective of becoming an online landscape design, construction, and consulting service.
The Company intends to develop procedures to make the information given to a prospective purchaser as accurate as possible to lead to the highest percentage of successful Western Lucrative purchases.

Neville Pearson was being appointed as a Director of the Company on August 14, 2010. Subsequently on August 17, 2010, he was appointed as President, Treasurer, and Secretary of the Company.
Concentration of Risk
The Company at times may maintain a cash balance in excess of insured limits. However, as of December 31, 2011, the Company has no cash in excess of insured limits.
Basis of Presentation
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reported period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Management further acknowledges that it is solely responsible for adopting sound accounting practices, establishing and maintaining a system of internal accounting control and preventing and detecting fraud. The Company's system of internal accounting control is designed to assure, among other items, that (1) recorded transactions are valid; (2) all valid transactions are recorded and (3) transactions are recorded in the period in a timely manner to produce financial statements which present fairly the financial condition, results of operations and cash flows of the company for the respective periods being presented.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America 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 period. A change in managements estimates or assumptions could have a material impact on the Companys financial condition and results of operations during the period in which such changes occurred. Actual results could differ from those estimates. The Companys financial statements reflect all adjustments that management believes are necessary for the fair presentation of their financial condition and results of operations for the periods presented.
Cash and Cash Equivalents
For purposes of the statement of cash flows, the Company considers all short-term debt securities purchased with maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents.
Accounts receivable, if any, is carried at the expected net realizable value. The allowance for doubtful accounts, when determined, will be based on management's assessment of the collectability of specific customer accounts and the aging of the accounts receivables. If there were a deterioration of a major customer's creditworthiness, or actual defaults were higher than historical experience, our estimates of the recoverability of the amounts due to us could be overstated, which could have a negative impact on operations.
The Company has been in the developmental stage since inception and has no operation to date. The Company currently does not have any accounts receivable. The above accounting policies will be adopted upon the Company carries accounts receivable.
Property and Equipment
Property and equipment are carried at cost. Expenditures for maintenance and repairs are charged against operations. Renewals and betterments that materially extend the life of the assets are capitalized. When assets are retired or otherwise disposed of, the cost and related accumulated depreciation are removed from the accounts, and any resulting gain or loss is reflected in income for the period.
Depreciation is computed for financial statement purposes on a straight-line basis over estimated useful lives of the related assets. The estimated useful lives of depreciable assets are:
For federal income tax purposes, depreciation is computed under the modified accelerated cost recovery system. For financial statements purposes, depreciation is computed under the straight-line method.
The Company has been in the developmental stage since inception and has no operation to date. The Company currently does not have any property and equipment. The above accounting policies will be adopted upon the Company maintaining property and equipment.
Item Estimated Useful Lives
Office Equipment 5-10 years
Vehicles 5-10 years
Website/Software 10-15 years
The Company has accounts payable in the amount of $25,197 as of December 31, 2011. The Company has accounts payable in the amount of $251 as of December 31, 2010.
Revenue and Cost Recognition
The Company intends to provide a landscape design and consulting service via a web site. The Company reports income and expenses on the accrual basis of accounting, whereby income is recorded when it is earned and expenses recorded when they are incurred. The Company currently does not yet have a working website; therefore, it has not realized any sales that would require recognition of revenue.
Advertising expenses related to specific jobs are allocated and classified as costs of goods sold. Advertising expenses not related to specific jobs are recorded as general and administrative expenses.
Stockholders Equity: Common Stock
The holders of the Companys common stock are entitled to receive dividends out of assets or funds legally available for the payment of dividends of such times and in such amounts as the board from time to time may determine. Holders of common stock are entitled to one vote for each share held on all matters submitted to a vote of shareholders. There is no cumulative voting of the election of directors then standing for election. The common stock is not entitled to pre-emptive rights and is not subject to conversion or redemption. Upon liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the company, the assets legally available for distribution to stockholders are distributable ratably among the holders of the common stock after payment of liquidation preferences, if any, on any outstanding payment of other claims of creditors.
The Company has authorized seven hundred and fifty million (750,000,000) shares of common stock with a par value of $.001. As of December 31, 2011 and 2010, there are 8,505,000 shares of common stock issued and outstanding.
Fair Value Measurements
In January 2010, the FASB ASC Topic 825, Financial Instruments, requires disclosures about fair value of financial instruments in quarterly reports as well as in annual reports. For the Company, this statement applies to certain investments and long-term debt. Also, the FASB ASC Topic 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures, clarifies the definition of fair value for financial reporting, establishes a framework for measuring fair value and requires additional disclosures about the use of fair value measurements.
Various inputs are considered when determining the value of the Companys investments and long-term debt. The inputs or methodologies used for valuing securities are not necessarily an indication of the risk associated with investing in these securities. These inputs are summarized in the three broad levels listed below.
· Level 1 observable market inputs that are unadjusted quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in active markets.
· Level 2 other significant observable inputs (including quoted prices for similar securities, interest rates, credit risk, etc
· Level 3 significant unobservable inputs (including the Companys own assumptions in determining the fair value of investments).
The Companys adoption of FASB ASC Topic 825 effectively at the inception did not have a material impact on the Companys financial statements.
The carrying value of financial assets and liabilities recorded at fair value is measured on a recurring or nonrecurring basis. Financial assets and liabilities measured on a non-recurring basis are those that are adjusted to fair value when a significant event occurs. The Company had no financial assets or liabilities carried and measured on a nonrecurring basis during the reporting periods. Financial assets and liabilities measured on a recurring basis are those that are adjusted to fair value each time a financial statement is prepared. The Company does not have financial assets as an investment carried at fair value on a recurring basis as of December 31, 2011.
The availability of inputs observable in the market varies from instrument to instrument and depends on a variety of factors including the type of instrument, whether the instrument is actively traded, and other characteristics particular to the transaction. For many financial instruments, pricing inputs are readily observable in the market, the valuation methodology used is widely accepted by market participants, and the valuation does not require significant management discretion. For other financial instruments, pricing inputs are less observable in the market and may require management judgment. As of December 31, 2011, the Company has assets and liabilities in cash, various receivables, property and equipments, and various payables. Management believes that they are being presented at their fair market value.
Basic and Diluted Loss per Common Share
Net loss per share is calculated in accordance with SFAS No. 128, "Earnings per Share." The weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during each period is used to compute basic loss per share. Diluted loss per share is computed using the weighted average number of shares and dilutive potential common shares outstanding. Dilutive potential common shares are additional common shares assumed to be exercised. We do not calculate loss per diluted shares to prevent understating the actual loss per share
Basic net loss per common share is based on the weighted-average number of share of common stock outstanding since inception. As of
December 31, 2011 and since inception, the Company had 8,505,000 common shares outstanding and 8,845,200 dilutive potential common shares.
Basic earnings per share are based on the weighted-average number of shares of common stock outstanding. Diluted earnings per share is based on the weighted-average number of shares of common stock outstanding adjusted for the effects of common stock that may be issued as a result of the following types of potentially dilutive instruments:
Employee stock options, and
Other equity awards, which include long-term incentive awards. The FASB ASC Topic 260, Earnings per Share, requires the Company to include additional shares in the computation of earnings per share, assuming dilution.
Diluted earnings per share are based on the assumption that all dilutive options were converted or exercised. Dilution is computed by applying the treasury stock method. Under this method, options are assumed to be exercised at the time of issuance, and as if funds obtained thereby were used to purchase common stock at the average market price during the period. The Company does not have diluted effects on common stock as there was no warrant or option issued.
Basic and diluted earnings per share are the same as there was no dilutive effect of outstanding stock options for the period ended December 31, 2011.
The following is a reconciliation of basic and diluted earnings per share for 2011:
December 31, 2011
Net income (loss) available to common shareholders
Weighted average shares basic 8,505,000
Net income (loss) per share basic and diluted $ (0.00)
Provision for Income Taxes
We are subject to state and federal income taxes in the U.S. Significant judgment is required in evaluating our uncertain tax positions and determining our provision for income taxes. In accordance with FASB ASC Topic 740, Income Taxes, we provide for the recognition of deferred tax assets if realization of such assets is more likely than not.
Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements
In January 2010, the FASB issued ASU 2010-06, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures (ASC 820): Improving Disclosures about Fair Value Measurements. This update will require (1) an entity to disclose separately the amounts of significant transfers in and out of Levels 1 and 2 fair value measurements and to describe the reasons for the transfers; and (2) information about purchases, sales, issuances and settlements to be presented separately (i.e. present the activity on a gross basis rather than net) in the reconciliation for fair value measurements using significant unobservable inputs (Level 3 inputs). This guidance clarifies existing disclosure requirements for the level of disaggregation used for classes of assets and liabilities measured at fair value and require disclosures about the valuation techniques and inputs used to measure fair value for both recurring and nonrecurring fair value measurements using Level 2 and Level 3 inputs. The new disclosures and clarifications of existing disclosure are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2009, except for the disclosure requirements for related to the purchases, sales, issuances and settlements in the roll forward activity of Level 3 fair value measurements. Those disclosure requirements are
effective for fiscal years ending after December 31, 2010. The Company is still assessing the impact on this guidance and does not believe the adoption of this guidance will have a material impact to its financial statements. Management does not believe that other recent accounting pronouncements issued by the FASB (including its Emerging Issues Task Force), the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants or the SEC have a material impact on the Companys present or future financial statements.
In February 2010, the FASB issued guidance to remove the requirement for an entity that files financial statements with the SEC to disclose a date through which subsequent events have been evaluated. The adoption of this guidance during our current fiscal quarter did not have any impact on our Consolidated Financial Statements.
The Company has evaluated recent accounting pronouncements and their adoption has not had or is not expected to have a material impact on the Companys financial statements.
