Note 2 – Summary of Significant Accounting Policies


Basis of Presentation - Unaudited Interim Financial Information


The accompanying unaudited condensed financial statements and related notes have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) for interim financial information, and in accordance with the rules and regulations of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) with respect to Form 10-Q and Article 8 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements. The unaudited condensed financial statements reflect all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) which are, in the opinion of management, necessary to a fair statement of the results for the interim periods presented. Interim results are not necessarily indicative of the results for the full year.


Use of Estimates


The Company prepares its financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, which requires management to use its judgment to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and related disclosures at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of expenses during the reported period. These assumptions and estimates could have a material effect on the financial statements. Actual results may differ materially from those estimates. The Company’s management periodically reviews estimates on an ongoing basis based on information currently available, and changes in facts and circumstances may cause the Company to revise these estimates.


Cash and Cash Equivalents


Cash and cash equivalents include all cash on hand, demand deposits and short-term investments with original maturities of three months or less when purchased. As of September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the Company’s cash and cash equivalents were $1,099,761and $424,445, respectively.



Prepaid Expenses


Prepaid expenses consist prepaid professional fees related to a scheduled filing and other receivables of $123,838 and $0 at September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively.


Property and Equipment


Property and equipment, which consists of computer equipment is recorded at cost and depreciated using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives. Ordinary repair and maintenance costs are included in general and administrative expenses on our statement of operations. However, expenditures for additions or improvements that significantly extend the useful life of the asset are capitalized in the period incurred. At the time assets are sold or disposed of, the cost and accumulated depreciation are removed from their respective accounts and the related gains or losses are reflected in the statements of operations in gains from sales of property and equipment, net.


The estimated useful life for computer equipment is three years. We periodically evaluate the appropriateness of remaining depreciable lives assigned to computer equipment. Depreciation expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021 was $1,620 and $476, respectively.


Revenue Recognition


The Company accounts for revenue in accordance with ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers. The underlying principle of ASC 606 is to recognize revenue to depict the transfer of goods or services to customers at the amount expected to be collected.


Revenues are recognized when control of the promised goods or services are transferred to a customer, in an amount that reflects the consideration that we expect to receive in exchange for those goods or services. The Company applies the following five steps in order to determine the appropriate amount of revenue to be recognized as we fulfill our obligations under each of our agreements:


  identify the contract with a customer;
  identify the performance obligations in the contract;
  determine the transaction price;
  allocate the transaction price to performance obligations in the contract; and
  recognize revenue as the performance obligation is satisfied.


The Company realizes revenue upon the fulfillment of its performance obligations to customers. As of September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the Company had deferred revenue of $2,863and $0, respectively, for contracts under which the customer had paid for and the Company had not yet delivered.


Research and Development Costs


Research and development expenses primarily consist of outside contractor costs related to engineering, design and development of a working prototype ThumzupTM App. Generally accepted accounting principles define research costs as a planned search or investigation to discover new knowledge with the hope that the results will eventually be useful in creating new products or services or significant improvements in existing products or services. Capitalization of research and development costs for software begins upon the establishment of technological feasibility, which is generally the completion of a working prototype that has been certified as having no critical bugs and is a release candidate. For the nine months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, research and development costs for software were expensed when incurred as they related to the initial product development stage for our ThumzupTM App.



Income Taxes


The Company utilizes the asset and liability approach to measure deferred tax assets and liabilities based on temporary differences existing at each balance sheet date using currently enacted tax rates in accordance with ASC 740. ASC 740 considers the differences between financial statement treatment and tax treatment of certain transactions. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect of a change in tax rate is recognized as income or expense in the period that includes the enactment date of that rate.


The Company has an accumulated deficit of approximately $1,655,388 as of September 30, 2022, and at the current corporate tax rate of 21% results in an estimated net operating loss (“NOL”) of $348,000. The Company has no income tax effect due to the recognition of a full valuation allowance on the expected tax benefits of future loss carry forwards based on uncertainty surrounding the realization of such tax assets.
