Q59 Ans A:

CFF will decrease, where as current ratio will increase. If the current ratio were less than 1, then the current ratio would have decreased. Any time when the current ratio is more than 1, repayment of short term debt, accounts payable etc will result in increase in current ratio.

Q 61 Ans A:

Inventory = Lower (cost, market)
Market = Replacement cost ; subject to the condition that NRV – profit margin < Market < NRV

First find NRV – profit margin => 120 – 15 = \$105
Replacement cost = \$100, which is less than NRV – profit margin, so market is \$105
Lower (\$110, \$105) = \$105
Hence inventory is \$105
In IFRS, Lower (Cost, market) => Lower ( \$110, \$120) = \$110

================================================== =====================================[/QUOTE]

Reason being: In judging impairment for an asset, the following 2 points should be noted:
1. Recoverability - Measured by whether Carrying Value > Undiscounted expected future CFs.
2. If irrecoverable, then Impairment Loss = Fair Value (a.k.a. discounted expected future CFs) - Carrying Value.

If we reverse the steps, then Carrying Value has to be at least equal to Fair Value to NOT be impaired (i.e., when Carrying Value = Fair Value, Impairment Loss = 0).

P.S. I'm new here, so I'm just providing an opinion; hopefully I'm right! I'm taking the June exams lol!

Q 62 Ans C:

Under IFRS upward valuation of the inventory is allowed but the valuation should be done only the value of the write-down which in this case was \$20 million. So the new inventory value will be \$430 + \$20 = \$450 million

Today's Question (Questions and answers provided by Knowledge Varsity)

Q 63 Suppose a firm over a year (the accounting period has the following inventory transactions:-

Beginning Inventory( Jan 1st) : 100 Units @ 30 per unit
Purchases and Sales during the year:
Jan 3rd : Purchased 60 units @ \$40 per unit
Jan 5th : Sold 70 units
Jan 10th : Purchased 20 units @ \$50 per unit
Jan 11th : Sold 90 units
Jan 20th : Purchased 50 units @ \$60 per unit
Jan 21st: Sold 40 units

LIFO COGS for the year will be, assuming perpetual method:-

A. \$8500
B. \$8200
C. \$7600

================================================== =====================================

Q 63 Ans B:

Under perpetual method we will consider the inventory inflow and outflow on a rolling basis. So on the 1st sale date, 60 units recently purchased were sold and 10 units were sold from the beginning inventory, on 2nd sale, 20 units were sold costing \$50 each and 70 units were sold from the beginning inventory. In the last sale transaction, all the 40 items were sold from the last purchase. So at the end we are left with 20 units from the beginning inventory and 10 units of the last made purchase.

units-------------------------------price--------------------------total
60-----------------------------------40---------------------------2400
10-----------------------------------30----------------------------300
20-----------------------------------50---------------------------1000
70-----------------------------------30---------------------------2100
40-----------------------------------60---------------------------2400
200----------------------------------------------------------------8200

However, under periodic method, we would have seen that all the 30 units left would have been from the beginning inventory.

Q 64 Which of the following is the most likely impact of capitalization as compared to expensing on the financial statement?

A. Cash flow from operations is lower
B. Results in lower income in the year on which the expense is capitalized
C. Variability in the net income is lower

================================================== =====================================

Q 64 Ans C :

Capitalization will result in higher assets and then depreciation of this asset for the life of the asset. This results in lower variability of the income. Also the cash outflow it is determined as cash flow from investing rather than cash flow from operations, as a result CFO is higher. In the year in which capitalization is done, expensing will result in lower income as compared to capitalization, however in the subsequent periods, capitalization will have lower income.

Thanks to all the members for participating in the Forum. I believe that these questions would be useful for your preparation.

This is Clarification Regarding Question No - 8.
Please note that the amount of loan taken was Rs. 10,00,000 and Not 10,000,000
so the answer related to the interest is correct.

There will be instances where due to delivery pressure we have some error and we will post errata to those in the forum.
I will now be actively taking part in the discussion, please feel free to post on the forum.

Thanks

2nd month the interest will be paid on the reduced principal => 10,00,000
