Hi.
In the December 2010 past exam paper of F7(international), the question 2, the note 2 is about 8% loan note with a premium. After looking through the answer, i still cannot understand how to get the carrying amount of the loan note of ‘\$30.6 million’. At first, i planed to use the present value method, but i got a number which is less then \$30 million.
Thank you. Best wishes

(in \$000)
1 Oct 20X0 – loan issued = \$30,000
1st yr
effective interest for the yr = 10% * \$30,000 = 3,000
interest paid = 8% * 30,000 = 2,400
Carrying value as at 1 Oct 20X1 = 30,000 + 3,000 – 2,400 =30,600 (given in trial balance)

2nd yr
effective interest for the yr = 10% * 30,600 = 3,060
interest paid (given) = 2,400
Carrying value as at 1 Oct 20X2 = 30,600 + 3,060 – 2,400 = 31,260

I/S finance cost for the yr ended 30 Sept 20X2 = 3,060
SFP 8% loan note = 31,260

Hope that helps
