Question:

You are the financial accountant for Superstore Ltd, and are in the process of preparing its financial statements for the year ended 30 June 2018.  Whilst preparing the financial statements, you become aware of the following situations:

  1. On 1 July 2017, the directors made a decision, using information obtained over the last couple of years, to revise the useful life of an item of manufacturing equipment.  The equipment was acquired on 1 July 2015 for $800,000, and has been depreciated on a straight-line basis, based on an estimated useful life of 10 years and residual value of nil.  Superstore Ltd uses the cost model for manufacturing equipment.  The directors estimate that as at 1 July 2017, the equipment has a remaining useful life of 6 years and a residual value of nil.  No depreciation has been recorded as yet for the year ended 30 June 2018 as the directors were unsure how to account for the change in the 2018 financial statements, and unsure whether the 2016 and 2017 financial statements will need to be revised as a result of the change.
  2. In June 2018, the accounts payable officer discovered that an invoice for repairs to equipment, with an amount due of $20,000, incurred in June 2017, had not been paid or provided for in the 2017 financial statements.  The invoice was paid on 12 July 2018.  The repairs are deductible for tax purposes.  The accountant responsible for preparing the company’s income tax returns will amend the 2017 tax return, and the company will receive a tax refund of $6,000 as a result (30% x $20,000).  No journal entries have been done as yet in the accounting records of Superstore Ltd, as the directors are unsure how to account for this situation, and what period adjustments need to be made in.
  3. Superstore Ltd holds shares in a listed public company, ABC Ltd, which are valued in the draft financial statements on 30 June 2018 at their market value on that date - $600,000.  A major fall in the stock market occurred on 10 July 2018, and the value of Superstore’s shares in ABC Ltd declined to $250,000.
  4. On 21 July 2018, you discovered a cheque dated 20 April 2018 of $32,000 authorised by the company’s previous accountant, Max. The payment was for the purchase of a swimming pool at Max’s house.  The payment had been recorded in the accounting system as an advertising expense.  You advise the directors of this fraudulent activity, and they will investigate.

Assume that each event is material.

Required

  1. i) State the appropriate accounting treatment for each situation. Provide explanations and references to relevant paragraphs in the accounting standards to support your answers.  Where adjustments to Superstore Ltd’s financial statements are required, explain which financial statements need to be adjusted (ie. 2016, 2017, 2018 or 2019).  
  2. ii) Prepare any note disclosures and adjusting journal entries that are needed in the 2018 financial statements for each situation.  

Accounting for share capital

Rippa Ltd was incorporated on 1 July 2017.  The following transactions and events occurred during the year ended 30 June 2018:

1 Jul 2017:  Rippa Ltd makes an offer to the public for investors to subscribe for 5,000,000 shares, at an issue price of $4.00 per share, with $2.50 payable on application, $1.00 being payable within one month of allotment, and $0.50 payable on a call to be made at a later date.  The issue is underwritten at a commission of $12,000.

31 Jul 2017:  Applications close, with applications received for 6,000,000 shares.

10 Aug 2017:  5,000,000 shares are allotted in proportion to the number of shares for which applications had been made.  The surplus application money is offset against the amount payable on allotment.

12 Aug 2017:  The underwriter’s commission is paid.10 Sep 2017:  All allotment money is received.

1 Feb 2018:  The call is made, with money due by 28 February 2018.  

28 Feb 2018:  All call money is received except for holders of 40,000 shares who fail to meet the call. 

20 Mar 2018:  The shares on which call money was not received are forfeited and sold as fully paid.  An amount of $3.20 is received for each share sold.  Costs of the forfeiture and reissue amount to $4,000, and are paid.  25 Mar 2018:  The balance of the Forfeited Shares Account is returned to the former shareholders.

Required:

  1. i)  Prepare the journal entries to record the transactions of Rippa Ltd up to and including that which took place on 25 March 2018.  Show all relevant dates and narrations.
  2. ii)  After returning money to the former shareholders on 25 March 2018, one of the former shareholders has contacted you in relation to the amount of money that he received.  He tells you that he paid the application money and allotment money for the shares that he had, so he should get an amount back of $3.50 per share.  Explain why the amount returned to the former shareholders was not $3.50 per share, and prepare workings to show how the refund per share was calculated.
