The 2010 financial statements of Bice Company reported net income for the year ended December 31, 2010, of $2,000,000. On July 1, 2011, subsequent to the issuance of the 2010 financial statements, Bice changed from an accounting principle that is not generally accepted to one that is generally accepted. If the generally accepted accounting principle had been used in 2010, net income for the year ended December 31, 2010, would have been decreased $1,000,000. On August 1, 2011, Bice discovered a mathematical error relating to its 2010 financial statements. If this error had been discovered in 2010, net income for the year ended December 31, 2010, would have been increased $500,000.
