Question 1 (June 2011)
(i)The currency that mainly influences sales prices for goods or services.(ii)(iii)The currency that mainly influences labour, material and other costs of providing goods and services.(iv)The currency in which funding from issuing debt and equity is generated.(v)The currency in which receipts from operating activities are usually retained.Therefore, it can be concluded that the functional currency of Stem is the dinar.Stem is not dependent upon group companies for finance which means that Stem generates its own fundsfrom equity or debt in its local currency, i.e. the dinar.The functional currency is the currency of the primary economic environment in which an entity operates. Inmost cases, this will be the local currency. It is the currency that an entity will use in its day to daytransactions.IAS 21
The Effects of Changes in Foreign Exchange Rates 
states that an entity should consider the followingfactors in determining its functional currency:The currency of the country whose competitive forces and regulations mainly determine the sales pricesof goods and services.In the case of Stem, the currency that mainly influences the sales prices of its mine output is the dinar as it'sincome is denominated and settled in dinars.As the output of the mine is routinely traded in dinars and its price is determined initially by local supply anddemand, the currency of the country whose competitive forces and regulations mainly determine the salesprices of goods and in which receipts from operating activities are retained is also the dinar.In addition, Stem pays 40% of its costs and expenses in dollars with the remainder being incurred locally andsettled in dinars. This means that the dinar is the currency that mainly influences labour, material and othercosts of operating the mine.1
