excellent lectures. What a wondeful sentence “reduce the penumbral areas of divergent possibilities”. Clear as mud!

Chapter 5. The Framework. Current cost accounting (cca). The framework has now created a penumbral area in my understanding the linkage to physical capital maintenance which may affect my position on historical cost accounting (hca). Where is cca used as all financial performance is measured on historical basis?
The theory says it will maintain the existing activities of an entity however does this imply that hca does not maintain the present capabilities of an entity?

What about lecture on IAS 12 – Taxation?
February 17, 2015 at 3:34 pm
There isn’t one – it’s not such a major part of the syllabus – at least it’s asked only very infrequently

I am just inquisitive to know that which element does irredeemable preference shares are part of? And do they really exist (for ex. Irredeemable debentures do not exist in real life)?
February 2, 2014 at 10:43 am
You say “irredeemable debentures don’t exist in real life” What about the “Undated Government Bonds” like 2% Treasury Stock and 3% War Loan. (The percentages may be incorrect, but the principle remains valid)
I’ve never personally come across any Irredeemable Preference Shares in any of my dealings / dabblings / losings in the shares market but I see no reason why they shouldn’t exist.
Now, where to classify them? That’s a good question and one I keep asking myself together with the promise to myself that I shall someday write to the P2 and F7 examiners and ask them the same question. Where preference shares are redeemable on a fixed or determinable future date, clearly they are classified as debt with “dividends” being included as a Finance Charge.
But Irredeemable Preference Shares – well, that’s a problem. They don’t satisfy the definition of equity nor are they redeemable on some fixed or determinable future date.
In brief ……I don’t know

Lloys TSB has irredeemable pref shares. They classify them as debt.
February 2, 2014 at 4:40 pm
Thanks Christine – and do Lloyds classify them as long term debt or as equity?
February 9, 2014 at 4:00 pm
I dont understand why you are asking me.
I wrote that they classify them as debt.
Is there problem?
February 9, 2014 at 4:03 pm
and i guess irredeemable debt is classified as debt.
so why should irredeemable pref be different!
February 2, 2014 at 12:55 pm
I am completely sure your initiative will bring amendments in the definition of either equity or debt. Because I see no point in birth of a new element in the framework.
And thank you for your guidance

and you mention undated government bonds. There are only 8 of them in the uk and they are all very very old. They do not issue any more.
