Mr. Mike, little confusing….
what I understood is….subsequent expenses(related to non current assets) can’t be capitalized, even if they caused to increase the useful life time of the asset,but they are unable to improve the ability of assets to generate additional revenue….
Thank in advance

I believe this explains it!
“To capitalise costs associated with existing property, plant, and equipment, one of the following three conditions must be met:
the quality of output is enhanced in some manner. The units produced contain functionality that was not present prior to the investment.
the useful life of the asset is extended. For example, the expected service life of the asset is longer after the investment.
the capacity or productivity of the equipment increases. The units of output are higher.”
In future, please post this type of question on the Ask the Tutor forum

Thank you very much for all the advices…

Hi Mike. I want to make it clear to you in which cases the borrowing costs calculated using weighted average interest rate will be more than the total actual finance cost incurred. It’s very simple. It happens when the cost of the project (construction etc.) is so high that when you multiply it by the percentage that we came up with we get borrowing costs that are also very high and ultimately higher than the actual finance costs incurred by the entity. I hope it’s clear now to you.

I’m not sure how the last 3 figures ( 90, 30 , 90) for the Investment column came about in Example 1. Can u please clarify?
July 24, 2015 at 9:10 am
Can you please give me a page number in the course notes where I can find the example?
July 24, 2015 at 9:13 am
Ah! It’s the borrowing cost example! Have the printed solution in front of you and read the question following through each line of the answer as you come to an event in the question.
Continually, repeatedly ask yourself “What figures will change on the occurrence of this event?” and you should be able to follow the logic of how these figures are arrived at.
If you still have a problem, post again

Unfortunately I still don’t get it.
June 2, 2015 at 8:16 am
Hi Mike, I don’t really understand the concept behind borrowing cost.Why we have borrowing cost? Got confused. Thank you
June 2, 2015 at 8:18 am
And also why we have to capitalise the borrowing cost

Hi Mike thank you for these excellent lectures !!
I found them very useful but I’m taking the Singapore variant exam do you know if it would be ok to use your lectures for the exam?
April 15, 2015 at 7:49 am
#1 if ever you want to be certain that I shall see your question and therefore be certain to get a response from me, then please post your question on the Ask the Tutor page and not in the general forum
#2 I know very little about Singapore, to my shame, but I can’t believe that there is a great deal of difference between the Singapore and the Global treatment of non-current assets
I imagine that you should be fine using these notes and lectures
April 16, 2015 at 1:59 am
Thank you sir!
February 28, 2015 at 9:11 pm

Appearing for P2 on 9th 😀 I hope to ace it too 😀
December 7, 2014 at 10:22 pm
Good luck, and thanks for those kind words
December 5, 2014 at 7:47 am
if an asset which is previously revalued is impaired then what is accounting treatment of this in according to IAS 6……….I also wnat to know its impact on deffered tax calculation…..
December 5, 2014 at 3:22 pm
Write the impairment off first against the relevant amount in the revaluation reserve. If there is a surplus amount to impair, that is charged to PorL
As for deferred tax implications, the tax base will be compared with the carrying value and tax calculated on the difference
Will that do?
December 6, 2014 at 3:50 am
Thanks a lot

Dear Little, there was a question asked by olfavladi says:
November 11, 2013 at 10:04 am you said that you had answer please help and just copy for us that answer i would also like to get the the answer to that question. thanks
November 28, 2013 at 6:42 am
olfavladi posted the same question in two different threads. I can’t remember what the heading was for the other thread. In addition, I was not really happy that I was being asked to give advice about a practical matter from his employment. The site is not here to provide professional consultation. There are firms of accountants that provide such services. This site is here to assist students to prepare for and to pass their accountancy exams.
If you wish to search through the site, you may find the earlier thread to which I have just referred but I’m not prepared to do that – I have students’ genuine questions to answer
November 11, 2013 at 10:04 am
I’ve got a question which we can not resolve in my company.
We acquired the intangible asset (licence) for 100 USD, partly this acquisition financed through the government grant (60 USD),
we are going to sell this asset for 15 USD in the 1-st year and for 15 USD in the 2-d year (total benefit of 30 USD). What will be Impairment Loss when we test for impairment?
Is it possible to include grant’s proceeds in calculation of recoverable amount?
We account for the grant as a deferred income, separately from the related intangible asset.
Please help me with this problem.
November 11, 2013 at 9:06 pm
I’ve already answered this!
November 1, 2013 at 5:28 pm
Hello, are there solution for example 1 (Edigijus) please?
November 1, 2013 at 8:10 pm
I thought there was a solution at the back of the notes
September 3, 2013 at 2:58 pm
are there no revision notes for the exam ? they are very helpful
September 3, 2013 at 3:24 pm
Hi, no, sorry
August 26, 2013 at 3:38 pm
hi Mike i have this question to ask, if a company has been depreciating an asset and at the end of the asset useful life, if they still want to keep the asset , what is the accounting treating?
August 26, 2013 at 8:30 pm
Why would they wish to keep it beyond its useful life? Are they still using it? In which case, it has not reached the end of its useful life! And if, in fact, it HAS reached the end of its useful life and has been fully depreciated, then there’s nothing to do – it is no longer contributing to the activities of the company. If, getting towards the end of its originally estimated useful life, the company decides that the asset is going to last longer than first estimated, then its estimated useful life should be re-assessed and whatever carrying value remains will then be written off over its new remaining estimated useful life. And then, next year, its remaining useful life will be further re-assessed …. and again the year after, and after. In theory, it should never be fully depreciated.
Is that ok?
August 27, 2013 at 11:14 am
yes mike, i was asking because the furnitures and computers in my company have been fully depreciated but the company doesn’t want to dispose them off because some are still in a good state. so my boss was telling us the other day that they will be bringing in experts to revalue the computers and the furnitures. I don’t know why he calls it a revaluation because i thought it is a reassessment of the asset extimated useful life ie an extension of the useful life of the asset
August 27, 2013 at 7:32 pm
I think you’re right – it’s a reassessment of estimated remaining useful life. IF the boss revalues these written down pieces of furniture, he should ensure that ALL assets in that class are reassessed / revalued. He should not “cherry pick”
August 28, 2013 at 10:18 am
thank you sir
June 21, 2013 at 11:34 am
hellow, when come to NCA’s vedio, it appeared 404 not found, I cannot play the vedio, the pevious early part can play, may I know what happen?
April 1, 2013 at 11:18 am
Hello. The standard says we are not allowed to capitalise any interest where the interest no longer mets certain criteria, one is the stoppage of work on site. what happens to the interest earned( i.e. where the loan has been invested) when work is stopped temporarily,do you match the income with the expense from the date it starts to meets the recognition criteria again or do you backdate the int income to match the int expense to be capitalised.?
June 22, 2013 at 9:13 pm
We capitalise so long as the criteria are met. If they are not met, then we must not capitalise. So interest accrued in that period is expensed to Statement of Income and any interest earned on the temporary investment of surplus funds will be credited to Statement of Income – I imagine that set-off would be acceptable. We do not backdate the capitalisation – if the interest is accrued during that period of inactivity, it’s expensed and not backdate-capitalisable
March 10, 2013 at 3:39 pm
Is there a video to guide us for slowing example 1 (Edigiius) on borrowing cost? Pls advise. Thanks

April 21, 2012 at 6:07 pm
When do we conduct a revaluation of an asset????
April 21, 2012 at 9:14 pm
@neetish, when you want to and, particularly when you have adopted the valuation model rather than the cost model. Revaluing downwards? – whenever there are indications that the asset / assets may have suffered impairment
