Here below is question from Dec 2020 ACCA exam.
Answer to this question is that FC of Investment should be calculated as [3 + 0.5*(4-3)] + [6 + 0.5*(10-6)] = 11.5mm. As well, 2.5mm is recognized in P&L. So it means that instead of selling the Assets for theit FV on the market (10+4 =14), recognizing Sale gain as 5mm and investing those 14 in JV, we invest 11.5 mm and “loose” 2.5mm in Revenue on this operation.
Yes, it is in line with the p.30 of IAS 28. But where is the logic here?
