The following information is relevant:


The profit after tax of Muscle PLC and Oyster Ltd for the year to 31 December 2010 were 10 million and 4 million respectively. Muscle PLC have a policy of revaluing property to fair value. At the date of acquisition, Oyster Ltds property had a fair value of 6 million higher than the book value. Additional depreciation of 500,000 needs to be recognised in the post-acquisition period. The fair value has not been reflected in the Oyster Ltds Statement of Financial Position.

3. 4. 5. 6. 7.

Included in Oyster Ltds intangibles is a development project with a capitalised cost of 3 million. Muscle PLCs Directors are of the opinion that this development project, at 31 December 2010, does not meet the criteria set out in IAS 38 Intangible Assets for recognition as an asset. Oyster Ltd sold goods to Muscle PLC during the year totalling 4m. One quarter of these goods are still in the inventory of Muscle PLC at 31 December 2010. Goods are sold at cost plus one third. A cheque for 2m from Muscle PLC sent to Oyster Ltd before the end of the financial year was not received until January 2011.

Muscle PLCs policy is to value the non-controlling interest using fair value at the date of acquisition. The market price of Oyster Ltds shares at the date of acquisition was 1. Year 1 - 0.8929 Year 2 - 0.7972 12% Present Value Factor:

(4 marks) Lobster PLC operates in the same market as Muscle PLC and holds the following investments: (i) 6,000 of the 20,000 1 ordinary shares in Shrimp Ltd. These were recently acquired, as the Directors of Lobster PLC believe that Shrimp Ltd has excellent growth prospects for the future.

Lobster PLC intends to hold its shares for a couple of years but not to influence the board in any way.


Discuss the nature of each of the above holdings and state the method of accounting that should be used in the group accounts of Lobster PLC under IAS 27 Consolidated and Separate Financial Statements and IAS 28 Investments in Associates. (6 marks) [Total: 30 MARKS]

Answer either Question 4 or Question 5


New factory premises were completed and ready for occupation on 1 April 2010. Production was not transferred to the factory until 30 September 2010 due to an industrial dispute arising from a decision by the company to make some compulsory redundancies. Capital expenditure in relation to the new factory premises is recorded in the Statement of Financial Position for the year ended 31 October 2009 at 1.4 million (including land of 800,000).

Fees of 3,000 were paid to Casement Haulage for the cost of transporting the machinery to the factory.



Norfolk PLCs headquarters building was acquired on 1 November 2003 for 2.5 million and depreciated at 4% per annum. On 1 November 2007, it was revalued to 3 million. Following this revaluation, the company did not make any reserve transfers for additional depreciation. As a consequence of the recent financial downturn, professional valuers have advised that as at 31 October 2010, the building was worth 2 million.

(5) (a)


Norfolk PLC uses the straight line method of depreciation, and depreciates buildings at 4% per annum and machinery at 20%. The company values investment properties using the fair value model.

Norfolk PLC also has a leasehold property held under a finance lease and leased out under an operating lease. The carrying value of the property at 1 November 2009 was 2 million and during the year Norfolk PLC spent 300,000 in extending the rented floor capacity of the property.

An important business issue arises when an entity closes or discontinues a part of its overall business activity. IFRS 5 Non Current Assets Held for Sale and Discontinued Operations provides guidance on the accounting treatment in such circumstances.


Archway PLC, a company that prepares its financial statements to 31 December each year, manufactures light fittings which it sells to the European market. The company has three manufacturing plants based in Limerick, Dublin and Barcelona. Due to increased competition and a change in consumer buying patterns within the Spanish market, the performance of the Barcelona operation has deteriorated over the last twelve months. At a Board meeting on 14 December 2010, the Directors of Archway PLC decided, reluctantly, to cease manufacturing at the Barcelona site and sell the factory. Immediately after the meeting the staff, suppliers and key customers were notified and an announcement was made to the press. You are employed as the Financial Accountant for the company and the Managing Director has let it be known that that the Barcelona operations results should be shown as a discontinued operation in the financial statements for the year ending 31 December 2010. Due to the declining business performance of the Barcelona site on 1 October 2010, Archway PLC increased production capacity at its Limerick site. The following are the extracts from Archway PLCs Statement of Comprehensive Income: 31 December 2010 Dublin Barcelona Limerick 000 000 000 30,000 19,000 4,500 (23,500) (23,180) (3,375) 6,500 (4,180) 1,125 (1,800) (1,100) (225) 4,700 (5,280) 900 Total 000 53,500 (50,055) 3,445 (3,125) 320 31 December 2009 Total 000 61,000 (51,800) 9,200 (2,400) 6,800

Explain whether the Managing Directors wish to show the results of the Barcelona operation as a discontinued operation is justifiable. (4 marks)


Explain how the above transaction should be treated in the financial statements for the year ending 31 December 2010. (3 marks) [Total: 20 MARKS]

On 1 October 2010 the Directors of Archway PLC decided to sell a machine, used within the Dublin operation and which was now surplus to requirements. The machine had a cost of 60,000 on 1 January 2008 and was expected to sell for 25,000. A buyer was found on 20 December 2010 at that price, although the sale was not completed until after the year end. On 1 October 2010, the machine met the held for sale criteria of IFRS 5. The company charges depreciation on plant and equipment at 20% on cost.

Assuming the Barcelona operation is to be treated as a discontinued operation, re-draft the extracts from the Statement of Comprehensive Income for the year ended 31 December 2010 (including comparatives) in accordance with the requirements of IFRS 5, and draft a suitable note relating to discontinued operations which would appear in the notes to the financial statements.

A gain on a bargain purchase arises if the fair value of the net assets acquired exceeds the total of the consideration transferred and the value of any non-controlling interest, i.e. there is negative goodwill.
Page 11

IFRS 3 (revised) any excess of the consideration transferred plus the value of any non-controlling interest over the fair value of any net assets acquired should be described as goodwill and recognised as an asset.


Lobster holds 42.5% of the equity shares in Prawn Ltd which carry significant influence, suggesting that Prawn Ltd is an associate. However, the following indicates that Prawn Ltd is in fact a subsidiary of Lobster PLC:

Lobster PLC holds 30% of the ordinary shares in Shrimp Ltd. Under IAS 28 significant influence is deemed to exist when a holding reaches 20%; however, this can be rebutted in the light of further evidence. Lobster takes no part in the decision making of Shrimp Ltd. The holding company is purely held for its investment potential and the substance of the holding is better reflected as a trade investment. On consolidation, Lobster PLCs investment would be shown at cost as a non-current asset investment.

If the gain still remains once these reassessments have been made, then it is attributable to a bargain purchase. The gain must be recognised as part of equity via recognition within profit/loss for the period. (4 marks)

IFRS 3 (revised) is based on the assumption that this usually arises because of errors in the measurement of the acquirees net assets and or/consideration transferred. So the first action is always to reassess the identification and measurement of the net assets and the measurement of the consideration transferred, checking in particular whether the fair values of the net assets acquired correctly reflect future costs arising in respect of the acquiree.

In the absence of any evidence to the contrary, Prawn Ltd should be accounted for as a subsidiary and consolidated using the acquisition method of accounting. (6 marks) [Total: 30 Marks]

Lobster controls the board of Prawn Ltd, appointing five of the board members, and can therefore control the operating and financial decision making within the company. Furthermore, Clam Ltd has agreed to vote its 20% alongside Lobster PLC, thus giving Lobster effective voting control.

The warranty provision meets the criteria for recognition as set out in IAS 37: There is a present obligation It is probable that a payment will have to be made; and It is possible to estimate the obligation reliably.

Candidates should describe and justify their accounting treatment.

The unsold element of inventory held on a sale or return basis should be excluded from sales and accounts receivable and recognised as closing inventory. This is in accordance with the prudence and realisation conventions. (8 marks) [Total: 30 Marks]

There are no specific accounting rules in relation to the trade fair. However, it is unlikely that the company could justify doing anything other than writing off the cost because the there is no reason to believe that the costs will be fully recovered. It would be a different matter if the company had obtained firm orders from the fair. The 25,000 should be treated as selling and distribution expenses as opposed to cost of sales.

The increase in the warranty of 8,000 should be recognised as an expense in the SCI under cost of sales.

SOLUTION 5 (a) IFRS 5 Non Current Assets Held for Sale and Discontinued Operations defines non current assets held for sale as those assets (or a group of assets) whose carrying amounts will be recovered principally through a sale transaction rather than through continuing use. For this to be the case the assets must be available for immediate sale and sale must be highly probable (e.g. completed within next 12 months).

A discontinued operation is a component of an entity that has either been disposed of, or is classified as held for re-sale and (i) (ii) (iii) Represents a separate major line of business or geographical area of operations Is part of a single co-ordinated plan to dispose of such or is a subsidiary acquired exclusively for sale.



Timing of the board meeting and consequent actions and notifications is within the accounting period ended 31 December 2010. Notification of suppliers and the press is indicative that a sale will be highly probable and the directors are committed to a plan to sell assets and are actively locating a buyer. From the financial information provided in the question it appears that Barcelonas operations and cash flows can be clearly distinguished from its other operations. The assets of the Barcelona operation appear to meet the definition of non current assets held for sale. The major issue is a separate geographical area of operations, and it is clear that the Barcelona operation meets this criteria. So the closure does meet the definition of a discontinued business.

IFRS 5 says that a component of an entity must have operations and cash flows that can be clearly distinguished from the rest of the entity and will in all probability be cash generating unit whilst held for use. This definition also means that a discontinued operation will also fall to be treated as a disposal group as defined in IFRS 5. (5 marks)
