June 09-Q3 Coaltown, the note of PPE, C.V. of property is revalued upwards by 5m, accumulated depren is 2m. Why 5m-2m added to PPE. I think just 5m which is already net.May 6, 2012 at 12:42 am #97151
I think the C.V. has already been deducted 2m accu derpn for getting to 5m net increase, why wrong?May 6, 2012 at 8:41 am #97152
qn says: “revalued the carrying amount of its property upwards by $5 million”.
the adjustment 5m-2m is done to the cost, not carrying value, in the answer. depreciation part is done separately.May 6, 2012 at 10:13 am #97153
Thanks, Najiya, I cant still understand why less 2m. Carrying amount is not C.V.? I think here Carrying amount is the NBV after charging this year’s deprn? Why wrong?May 6, 2012 at 10:45 am #97154
qn gives cost & depreciation separately and there are other adjustments also.
Regarding revaluation, CV is up by 5m. (CV = Carrying value = carrying amount)
here, we are doing the adjustment separately to cost & depreciation.
entry for revaluation is:
Dr Accum depn
the amount which goes to R.R is the revaluation on CV, here, 5m.
accum depn for this asset given 2m
what is balance?…..5m-2m= 3m debit asset
hope that clears ur doubt.May 6, 2012 at 11:36 am #97155
I am also confused how 2m depreciation goes to the Revaluation reserve.
Revaluation entry would be:
Dt Asset 5m
Cr RR 5m
Then depreciation charge entry:
Dt Depreciation expense 2m
Cr Accumulated depr 2m
And why in the end there is Dt Acc depr/ Cr RR?May 6, 2012 at 2:03 pm #97156
I found the answer of my above post question.
It is under IFRS 3, in the additional guidance:
“During the measurement period, the acquirer shall recognise adjustments to the
provisional amounts as if the accounting for the business combination had been
completed at the acquisition date. Thus, the acquirer shall revise comparative
information for prior periods presented in financial statements as needed,
including making any change in depreciation, amortisation or other income
effects recognised in completing the initial accounting”
I.e. depreciation expense shall be accounted as if it existed as at the acquisition date and this can be done only affecting the Retained earnings.May 6, 2012 at 4:06 pm #97157
Why not think about it this way? If an asset is to be revalued, is that not effectively saying that the depreciation charged in prior years was over / under provided. So the revaluation is first of all set against the Accumulated Depreciation. Only after that account has been reduced to zero will we then turn to the asset account and debit the additional revaluation to the asset account.May 7, 2012 at 8:38 am #97158
the gain in revaluation is 5m.
cv+gain =revalued amt.
cost-acc depn+gain= revalued amt. (since CV=cost-acc depn)
gain = revalued amt-cost +acc depn.
in other words,
CR RR 5m
DR PPE (revalued amt-cost) 3m
DR acc depn 2mMay 7, 2012 at 9:38 am #97159
Thanks for these detailed steps. Very useful. But I still think the question expression leads misunderstanding.May 7, 2012 at 10:11 am #97160
1981, you are right, if were understandable who would buy the textbooks and the kits of the publishers, already have a headache of this examMay 7, 2012 at 11:02 am #97161
dont expect ur examiner use same style in your text book. this is a professional exam. they may ask a simple concept in little confusuing style. here, they didnt ask anything confusing. you are not thorough with the concept, that is all.
when u r in doubt, think postively, it is good. doubt arise when a concept is not understood enough. or it could be you had misunderstanding in your first reading. very often, i read something i understand something else esp if the concept is new for me. it gets clear and more obvious when we practise questions.
