(1) SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
ORGANIZATION AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION
Yacht Finders, Inc. (the “Company”) was incorporated in Delaware on August 15, 2000 as Sneeoosh Corporation. On October 20, 2000 the company filed an amended Certificate of Incorporation to change the name to Snohomish Corporation. The Company did not conduct any operations until April 15, 2003, the date the Company entered the development stage. On April 15, 2003 the company filed a subsequent amendment to change the name to Yacht Finders, Inc. Yacht Finder's Inc. business plan was to create an online database for public buyers and yacht brokers to interface immediately with each other while capturing the benefits of targeting a larger market. On November 6, 2007, the Company discontinued its prior business and changed its business plan. The Company’s business plan now consists of exploring potential targets for a business combination through the purchase of assets, share purchase or exchange, merger or similar type of transaction. The Company is a development stage enterprise in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 915 (Statement of Financial Accounting Standards ("SFAS") No. 7).
USE OF ESTIMATES
The preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
CASH AND CASH EQUIVALENTS
The Company had $-0- cash and no cash equivalents at December 31, 2011 and December 31, 2010. The Company considers all highly liquid securities with original maturities of three months or less when acquired to be cash equivalents.
LOSS PER COMMON SHARE
The Company reports loss per share using a dual presentation of basic and diluted loss per share. Basic loss per share excludes the impact of common stock equivalents and is determined by dividing income available to common shareholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted loss per share reflects the potential dilution that could occur if securities and other contracts to issue common stock were exercised or converted into common stock. At December 31, 2011 and December 31, 2010, there were no variances between the basic and diluted loss per share as there were no potentially dilutive securities outstanding.
The Company accounts for income taxes under the provisions of Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") ASC-740 “Accounting for Income Taxes”. ASC-740 requires recognition of deferred tax liabilities and assets for the expected future tax consequences of events that have been included in the financial statements or tax returns. Under this method, deferred tax liabilities and assets are determined based on the difference between the financial statement and tax bases of assets and liabilities using enacted tax rates in effect for the year in which the differences are expected to reverse.
In addition ASC-740 seeks to reduce the diversity in practice associated with certain aspects of the recognition and measurement related to accounting for income taxes and has analyzed filing positions in all of the federal and state jurisdictions where it is required to file income tax returns, as well as all open tax years in these jurisdictions. The Company has identified its federal tax return and its state tax return in California as “major” tax jurisdictions, as defined. The Company believes that its income tax filing positions and deductions will be sustained on audit and does not anticipate any adjustments that will result in a material adverse effect on the Company’s financial condition, results of operations, or cash flow. Therefore, no reserves for uncertain income tax positions have been recorded pursuant to ASC-740. The Company did not record a cumulative effect adjustment related to the adoption of ASC-740.
The Company has evaluated all subsequent events through March 6, 2012, the date the financial statements were issued, and no additional items were noted that need to be disclosed.
The Company operates on a December 31 year-end.
WARRANTS AND OPTIONS
There are no warrants or options outstanding to acquire any additional shares of common or preferred stock.
The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. The Company generated net losses of $317,482 during the period of April 15, 2003 (inception) to December 31, 2011. This condition raises substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. The Company's continuation as a going concern is dependent on its ability to meet its obligations, to obtain additional financing as may be required and ultimately to attain profitability. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty. The Company's continuation as a going concern is dependent upon working capital advances provided by the Company's majority shareholder. There is no assurance that the working capital advances will continue in the future nor that Company will be successful in raising additional funds through other sources.
FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS
The Company adopted the provisions of ASC Topic 820, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures”, which defines fair value as used in numerous accounting pronouncements, establishes a framework for measuring fair value and expands disclosure of fair value measurements.
The estimated fair value of certain financial instruments, including cash and cash equivalents, payables to related parties, and accounts payable and accrued expenses are carried at historical cost basis, which approximates their fair values because of the short-term nature of these instruments.
ASC 820 defines fair value as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. ASC 820 also establishes a fair value hierarchy, which requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. ASC 820 describes three levels of inputs that may be used to measure fair value:
Level 1 — quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities
Level 2 — quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets or inputs that are observable
Level 3 — inputs that are unobservable (for example cash flow modeling inputs based on assumptions)
RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS
From time to time, new accounting pronouncements are issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board or other standard setting bodies that may have an impact on the Company’s accounting and reporting. The Company believes that such recently issued accounting pronouncements and other authoritative guidance for which the effective date is in the future either will not have an impact on its accounting or reporting or that such impact will not be material to its financial position, results of operations, and cash flows when implemented.
