First, I’d like to thank you for the incredible service you provide. I discovered and joined OpenTuition a couple of months ago and have been immensely benefitting from it. So, I’d like to thank you once again for this service.
Regarding the question, I would kindly like your help with (a)(i) (in the P&R Kit)
This question also appeared in Sep/Dec 2015 in P2
In the answer (Page 144 – BPP SBR P&R Kit Sep 2019 – Jun 2020),
On 1 Feb 20X5, Tyslar recorded the loan in its financial statements at 90m dinars ($10m × 9)
On 1 Jul 20X5, Tyslar repaid 50m dinars ($5m × 10)
And therefore deducted 50m dinars from 90m dinars leaving the balance of the loan in their financial statements at 40m dinars.
Then, on 31 Oct 20X5, the remaining balance of $5m was translated at 9.5 dinars bringing the balance in Tyslar’s financial statements to 47.5m dinars and giving an exchange loss of 7.5m dinars
However, I want to ask that before Tyslar repaid 50m dinars, shouldn’t we retranslate the full loan amount of $10m at the rate of 10 dinars:$1 at 1 Jul 20X5 and then record the exchange loss in P/L as follows:
$10m × 10 = 100m dinars
100m dinars – 90m dinars = 10m dinars (Exchange loss)
Dr. P/L – 10m dinars
Dr. Non-current Liabilities – 40m dinars
Cr. Cash – 50m dinars
Therefore, we’ll have to deduct 40m dinars from 100m dinars bringing the balance of the loan in Tyslar’s financial statements to 60m dinars rather than the previous 40m dinars.
On 31 Oct 20X5, the remaining balance will be the same 47.5m dinars ($5m × 9.5) but the exchange loss will be 12.5m dinars (60m dinars – 47.5m dinars) rather than the previous 7.5m dinars
I’m asking this because the answer to Activity 1 (Chapter 16 – BPP SBR Course Notes Sep 2019 – Jun 2020) in the appendix (Page 575) shows the same way of calculation as I have suggested above.

There are 2 exchange differences:
On the amount repaid (from start of year to repayment date)
(5×9) – (5×10) = 5
On the amount not yet repaid (from start of year to end of year)
(5×9) – (5×9.5) = 2,5
Total loss = 7.5
Best way to do it is use BPP working – that’s what I’ve always taught
You only remeasure at monetary assets and liabilities at the reporting date- I can’t work out where your numbers have gone wrong – but don’t do it again!May 23, 2020 at 3:14 pm
So, they calculated the exchange loss separately on the $5m that was repaid and the $5m yet to be repaid and aggregated it (5 + 2.5 = 7.5) at the year-end (31 Oct 20X5)?May 24, 2020 at 11:10 am
You don’t need to separate the 2 bits out – they’ve done the XD as a single balancing figure
I just broke it apart to show that their answer was right.
