the answer to this question provided on ACCA page, does not cancel the interests on the loan notes of 275 and gives therefore different values of NCI – 8,480 and Retained Earnings – 36,380, kindly reply

Cancellation of the intra-group loan interest is a presentation point only. So far as the subsidiary is concerned, it’s an expense and therefore the nci share should be calculated on the uncancelled profits
Have I given them their share of the profit as adjusted for the cancelled interest? I need to check it out before I go definite on this – I need to see the question again and I don’t have it to hand

Hi, you Dr Asset and CR Retained Earnings by 800. Is that a typo? Is it suppose to be by 600?

Hi, In W5 A, could you please tell me where the 800 asset increase and ret earnings increase came from. thanks.

Hi sir, I facing the problem of note no 2 I feeling confused the loan note why need to deduct $2500 in square’s loan note,can you explain to me? Thx
December 29, 2014 at 8:55 pm
Because the 2500 is owed to the parent and therefore is not a liability of a group to the outside world.

I think it would be a good idea if you did a few mini questions on reconciling current accounts… That area in F7 questions is a pain in the butt. I am now confident in all other workings and I would have balanced the question had it not been for the current accounts.
Kudos to you sir
December 29, 2014 at 8:56 pm
God, I hate these current accounts, they seem to be a little work, but always confuses me.
December 30, 2014 at 12:45 pm
Go back to basics and open up two T accounts.
The first, in the parent’s records is called “Current Account with Subsidiary”
The second, in the subsidiary’s records is called “Current Account with Parent”
Put in the balances given to you in the question. Account for the in-transit items, then cancel the (now) reconciled balances from Receivables and from Payables
When accounting for the in-transit items, write the adjustment on your QUESTION paper
Hope that helps

note 3 says sales were 1600 to square: why used 1500 in calculting your pup n the current account balances?
April 16, 2013 at 5:29 pm
Sales from P to S were $16,000 and P had correctly recorded that. However, the goods were still in-transit and had not arrived at S, which means S’s accounts lagged behind by exactly the amount of this last unrecorded purchase which has to be $1,500 since then by adding it to S’s current balance of $14,500, they will have recorded the same amount i.e. $16,000.
But as the question mentions “S’s inventory was counted on 31 Mar 2012 and DOES NOT INCLUDE ANY GOODS purchased from Pyramid” anymore I would add, since they were all sold out. Thus, the PURP will be calculated only on the new goods that were received on the 4 Apr 2012, i.e. the $1,500 goods-in-transit.
Hope that answers your question.

I’m sorry this might be a stupid question but I really didn’t understand, from point no.3, why only $1500 was accounted for pup! There’s no mention of selling the rest $14500 goods that I might assume only $1500 left in inventory to be dealt with. So, if Square didn’t sell any of the $16000 goods purchased, why should we not calculate the pup on full amount but only on $1500?
And that you calculated the cost of investment, on g/w section, exploring share and share premium separately taking the 80% of Square’s share owned by P, why doesn’t the same method work with the examples in the course note? Example 1 of chapter 9 from the course note for an instance.
Please spend a few minutes and explain these two issues briefly when you’re free. Please

The question mentions “S’s inventory was counted on 31 Mar 2012 and DOES NOT INCLUDE ANY GOODS purchased from Pyramid” so the only goods that contain unrealised profits are the goods in transit as at the year end ie $1,500

Thank you so much for this. All your efforts are greatly appreciated.

Look at the question, note 3. You see how it says “Sales to Square 16,000″ and “Purchases from Pyramid 14,500″?
Does that answer your question?
It’s even explained for you in the two lines after the table of figures: “On 26 March 2012, Pyramid sold and despatched goods to Square, which Square did not record until they were received on 2 April 2012″
