question 1, according to Statement of Practice A32, https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/statement-of-practice-a32/statement-of-practice-a32
goods for own use should be treated as sale at market value.
so the correct answer should be
Dr Drawings 3840
Cr Sales 3840
am I getting something wrong?

Yes you are. As the document states, that relates to the tax treatment in the UK. The tax authorities adjust the financial accounting profit when calculating the tax (as you will discover in Paper TX). They do not (and cannot) dictate how a business prepares it’s accounts. (And tax rules (apart from the accounting treatment of sales tax) are not examinable in Paper FA). The same applies for the charging of depreciation (as I explain the lectures on depreciation) – in the financial accounts the business does what they think best, but when the tax is calculated the authorities change the depreciation to their own rules for calculating the profit on which the tax is calculated, but it does not affect the financial accounts.

Thanks. This is very tricky to me. If this is not allowed in tax, why not just treat it directly as tax regulations require.
This is different from depreciation which is generally accepted globally.

Our FA lectures teach the ‘rules’ applicable to Paper FA exam questions and tax computations are not relevant until Paper TX.
Also appreciate that the case you quote may well be relevant for Paper TX, but concerned horses, and as the document states, inspectors take a reasonably broad view.
As you will find in Paper TX there are many things that are not allowable for UK tax purposes (for example, gifts to employees over a certain limit and provisions for irrecoverable debts) but that does not affect at all how businesses choose to deal with them in their financial accounts (or in many cases are required to deal with them per accounting standards).

I appreciate you people providing us free resources. But the questions are relatively easy. It would be great if you could provide us more difcult questions. And best of luck for PQ awards. I hope you guys get it

Thanks for the comment.
The tests are only meant to be quick checks after each chapter. We state throughout the website that is is vital to buy a Revision Kit from one of the ACCA approved publishers, because they are full of exam standard questions for practice.

Are these notes applicable for March 2019 attempt as well? On the notes, it is mentioned Sept-Dec 2018.
December 6, 2018 at 7:05 am
Yes – they are fine for March 2019. The syllabus is remaining the same.

Hi, with regards to question 3 my answer is 188500 and I chose 188.500. I know that a . And a , brings different amount. However the answer is the same as my answer. Could it be spelling mistake please?

That won’t be a problem in the real exam 🙂

Was wondering, if sales tax is included into the cost of goods (valuation).
1) If sales tax is recoverable, do not include it into inventory.
2) If sales tax is irrecoverable, include it into inventory.
Is my above illustrations correct?
Another question: What is the difference between registered and non registered sales companies?
1) Registered: Collect taxes on behalf of government and can claim on input taxes. [Illustration]
2) Non registered: No claims can be made on taxes, paid taxes either capital or revenue expenditure [Illustration]
3) Does non registered company charge/collect taxes on it product or services? [Question]
Please do correct my above illustration and question if wrong.
Thanks in advance for your greatly appreciated help, your site is a great aid to my F3 studies.

Cost should include all: [IAS 2.10]
costs of purchase (including taxes, transport, and handling) net of trade discounts received
Question: Given that only trade discount is mentioned, do i have to exclude purchase discount and purchase allowance as well?
For example, purchase of 5000, purchase discount 50, thus inventory valuation is 4950 or in short net purchases. However given that only trade discount was mentioned my bet would be on 5000.
Thks in advance for the help.

You must ask these questions in the Ask the Tutor Forum and not as a comment on a test.

For question 1 in this chapter, the underlying method is periodic period, am i right.
Assume if the underlying method is perpetual (aka continuous), answer should be Debit Drawing and Credit Inventory, am i right?
Thanks in advance for the help.
June 26, 2017 at 3:45 pm
You are right, but in the exam is it always periodic as in that question:-)
