NOTE 2 - BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
Basis of Presentation
The consolidated financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America. This basis of accounting involves the application of accrual accounting and consequently, revenues and gains are recognized when earned, and expenses and losses are recognized when incurred. The Companys consolidated financial statements are expressed in U.S. dollars.
Use of Estimates and Assumptions
The preparation of consolidated financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles 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 period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Goa Excursion. All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. The consolidated financial statements of fiscal year 2012 were restated to reflect the discontinuation of Goa Excursion. See Note 4.
The Company sold out its Indian subsidiary, Goa Excursion, on May 1, 2012. Goa Excursion has been reflected as discontinued operations for periods presented in the Companys consolidated financial statements. Accordingly, the revenues, costs, expenses, assets, and liabilities of the Goa Excursion have been reported separately in the consolidated statements of operations and consolidated balance sheets for all periods presented. The results of discontinued operations do not reflect any allocation of the Companys general and administrative expenses.
Cash and Cash Equivalents
The Company considers all highly liquid investments with an original maturity of three months or less when purchased to be cash equivalents.
A deferred tax asset or liability is recorded for all temporary differences between financial and tax reporting and net operating loss carry forwards. Deferred tax expense (benefit) results from the net change during the year of deferred tax assets and liabilities. Deferred tax assets are reduced by a valuation allowance when, in the opinion of management, it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are adjusted for the effects of changes in tax laws and rates on the date of enactment. At October 31, 2012 and July 31, 2012, a full deferred tax asset valuation allowance has been provided and no deferred tax asset benefit has been recorded.
Foreign Currency Translation
The Companys functional currency is United States (U.S.) dollars as substantially all of the Companys operations use this denomination. The consolidated financial statements are presented in U.S. dollars. Foreign denominated monetary assets and liabilities are translated into their United States dollar equivalents using foreign exchange rates which prevailed at the balance sheet date. Non-monetary assets and liabilities are translated at the exchange rates prevailing at the transaction date. Revenues and expenses are translated at average rates of exchange during the year. Gains or losses resulting from foreign currency transactions are included in results of operations.
Earnings (Loss) per Share
Basic earnings per common share is computed by dividing net income available to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period, excluding the effects of any potentially dilutive securities. Diluted earnings per common share gives effect to all dilutive potential of shares of common stock outstanding during the period including stock options or warrants, using the treasury stock method (by using the average stock price for the period to determine the number of shares assumed to be purchased from the exercise of stock options or warrants), and convertible debt or convertible preferred stock, using the if-converted method. Earnings per share excludes all potential dilutive shares of common stock if their effect is anti-dilutive. There were no potential dilutive securities outstanding during the three months ended October 31, 2012 or 2011.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
The Company does not expect the adoption of recently issued accounting pronouncements to have a significant impact on the Companys results of operations, financial position or cash flows.
The Company evaluated events subsequent to October 31, 2012 through the date the consolidated financial statements were issued for disclosure considerations.
