Lessee Ltd.

Lessee Ltd., a British company that applies IFRSs, leased equipment from Lessor Inc. on
January 1, 2007, for a period of three years. Lease payments of $100,000 are due to
Lessor Inc. each year. Other expenses (e.g., insurance, taxes, maintenance) are also to be paid by Lessee Ltd. and amount to $2,000 per year. The lessor did not incur any initial direct costs. The lease contains no purchase or renewal options and the equipment reverts back to Lessor Inc. on the expiration of the lease. The remaining useful life of the equipment is four years. The fair value of the equipment at lease inception is $265,000.
Lessee Ltd. has guaranteed $20,000 as the residual value at the end of the lease term. The
$20,000 represents the expected value of the leased equipment to the lessee at the end of the lease term. The salvage value of the equipment is expected to be $2,000 after the end of its economic life. The lessee’s incremental borrowing rate is 11 percent (Lessor’s implicit rate is 10 percent and is calculable by the lessee from the lease agreement).

The junior accountant of Lessee Ltd. analyzed the assets under lease and prepared a computation. The senior accountant of Lessee Ltd. reviewed the analysis and the computation and prepared a separate analysis. As the finance controller, you were given both of the computations to determine the correct accounting treatment. Calculations and journal entries performed by your junior and senior accountant are below.

Present Value of the Lease Obligation

Using the rate implicit in the lease (10 percent), the present value of the guaranteed residual value would be $15,026 ($20,000 × 0.7513), and the present value of the annual payments would be $248,690 ($100,000 × 2.4869).

Using the incremental borrowing rate (11 percent), the present value of the guaranteed residual value would be $14,624…...

Hutchison Whampoa Ltd Case Summary

...integral to an organization’s strategic plan. It sets out how the organization plans to finance its overall operations to meet its objectives now and in the future. Hutchison, like other large firms in Hong Kong, relied heavily on internally generated funds to fuel growth. Having reserves of 67,994m (more than twiceof operating expenses in 1996), it is stable enough to continue without external funding, indicating a conservative financing strategy. Debt ratios for 1995 & 1996 are 46% and 42% respectively, showing HWL’s relatively medium dependency on debt . With approximate interest coverage ratio of 4.96 and an A3/A+ credit rating from Moody’s and S&P respectively, HWL was considered to have a relatively low default risk. As stated in the case, HWL had “drawn on short-and medium-term loan facilities underwritten by banking syndicates for external financing”. Prior to June 1997, the longest debt maturity HWL had offered was 9 years including subsidiary loans. Looking at HWL’s long term liabilities in 1996, 69.5% of its loans are repayable in 5 years which further indicates the firm’s strategy of borrowing without long term obligations to maintain liquidity and flexibility. There is a net cash outflow of 5,486 compared to cash inflow of 3,950 – this was mainly due to the increase in purchase of and advances to associated companies, additions to managed funds and other investments, and purchase of fixed assets. This was in line with the firm’s overall strategy of expanding......

Boeing Australia Ltd Case Study

...get the same results, large percentage of staff and management resistant to change. Boeing Australia Limited (BAL) Due to the costs involved in upgrading their entire system, was BAL large enough to proceed without thought to the costs. BAL really only had one major customer the ADF and what would happen in the future if they lost those contracts. But, would not upgrading to a new full system or upgrading the e-procurement portion to work with the systems that are already in place cause them to lose the contracts as they could not provide the information needed by their major customers to monitor the progress of projects they were working on. Quantitative Issues Key Cost Assumptions a) Hardware is not needed – mention of Dell purchase in case b) Internal IT staff available c) All costs include installation and training. Alternatives and/ or Options ALT 1: BAL implements a sophisticated e-Procurement System that integrates all parts of the current technology legacy system that is already in place. (Assumes that the systems are authorized for usage by major customer ADF) PROS: BAL employees are already comfortable in using the old system, not a huge learning curve. Not as expensive in the short term as a whole new ERP system would be. Hopefully lower costs, larger savings long term. BAL would be able to pass on information between departments, suppliers and customers with ease. CONS: Costs are high, no guarantee that new procedures would save money in......

Case Study Rochem Ltd

... the Chemling’s machine total cost per unit is by £7.17 higher. 2. Evaluating the two alternative technologies according to their features and the long term valuation, the new Chemling is manual testing unlike AFU that is automatically testing. Also, the delivery for the AFU is immediate and tree months for the Chemling. So the AFU is more feasible. The AFU technology is how all future similar technologies will be. By the acceptability of the technology the company will improve the competitiveness and will give a return on investment as well as adding to the resource base. In the end, any manufacturing operation has to bear in mind that, the unit cost of the product is a critical factor in measuring performance. In the case of the Rochem Ltd, the Chemling’s machine total cost per unit is by £7.17 higher. So, as a long term investment the AFU is more profitable. 3. The recommendation for the company is to buy the AFU because: I. Of the immediate delivery, so the new production will be directly available. II. The testing is automatically. III. The production is higher. IV. The production cost is lower. V. The AFU is a modernized machine and the company will be able to adapt in the new technologies and market requirements. Another solution is to fix the old Chemling machine, in order to save money, time and the workers will be satisfied. Replacing the older machine with a substantially better one would entail a much greater cost more than £590,000 and......

...Contents Executive Summary 2 Issues Identification 2 Environmental and Root Cause Analysis 3 Alternatives and Options 4 Alternative 1 4 Alternative 2 4 Recommendation 5 Implementation 5 Monitor and Control 7 Appendix 9 Appendix 1 – Total Cost Analysis 9 Appendix 2 – Weighted Evaluation 10   Executive Summary Platinum Box Ltd. Is a small design house and printing operation that is well known for their superior graphic designs in the competitive printing industry. They have announced that they are looking to expand their market into the United States, and in order to do so they need to purchase five new presses to meet the goals of expanded production. Jared John, the procurement manager from Platinum Box, is charged with the responsibility of making a recommendation for the new presses. This recommendation is based on the decision of whether or not to single source to the existing supplier, Jabaking Ltd, or to engage in multiple sourcing from two other interested parties, Merakuri and Pnutype Press. This poses as an issue since there is a close personal relationship between the founders of Jabaking and Platinum Box. After conducting a weighted evaluation and total cost analysis of all three suppliers, Pnutype press appears to have the best product in terms of total price, quality, maintenance, and product capability. Choosing to use multiple sourcing would give Platinum an advantage in finding the best product in the market to meet the needs of their......

Lesse Ltd Case

...Patrick Killeavy 6/4/2015 ACCT 7116 Lessee Ltd. INTRODUCTION: Lessee Ltd. is a British company that applies IFRS for financial reporting purposes. On January 1, 2013, Lessee Ltd. leased equipment from Lessor Inc. The lease term covers a period of three years and reverts back to the lessor at the end of three years. The lease costs consist of $100,000 annual rental payments as well as $2000 of annual expenses that relate to insurance, maintenance, and taxes. The equipment has a 4 year useful life, $265,000 fair value, $20,000 guaranteed residual value, and $2000 salvage value. According to IFRS IAS 17, a lease can either be classified as a finance lease or as an operating lease. Lessee Ltd. has several concerns about the classification of the lease and whether to use the 10% implicit rate in the lease or the 11% incremental borrowing rate. As a result, both a junior and senior accountant of Lessee Ltd. provided an analysis discussing whether the lease was an operating or capital lease and each prepared the applicable journal entries. Was the junior accountant's analysis correct?: According to the junior accountant, the lease should be classified as an operating lease because the equipment reverts back to the lessor. The accountant believed that the proper annual journal entry consists of debiting legal expense of $100,000, insurance expense of $2000, and crediting cash of $102,000. According to IFRS IAS 17.10 "Whether a lease is a finance lease......

Abc Ltd Case Study

...Case Study: ABC Learning Background ABC Developmental Learning Centres was founded in 1988. ABC rapidly expanded, reaching 43 childcare centres by June 30, 2001. By November 2005, it had 697 Early Childhood Education centres throughout Australia and New Zealand. In March 2006, it forecast that would have 950 centres in Australia and New Zealand by June 30, 2006. It was a highly profitable company in the 2004/5 financial year, recording net profit after tax of $52.3 million from total revenues of $292.7 million. The six months ending 31 December 2005 showed no slowing in the financial momentum for the company with profit after tax reaching $38 million and revenues of $219.8 million. Trading in ABC Learning shares was suspended in August 2008 after the company failed to release its earnings for the 2007-08 financial year. Despite selling off assets, the company fell into receivership in November 2008 after increasing debt servicing obligations and its auditors were unable to sign off on its accounts. The federal government injected $22 million into the company to keep its childcare centers open until the end of 2008. The company was subsequently delisted. Creditors voted to wind up the company in June 2010. ‘Lessons to be learnt from ABC Learning's collapse’ Colin Kruger January 2, 2009 Dr Philip Ross, the head of the school of accounting at the University of Western Sydney, describes it as a "failure of regulatory and accounting processes" and says that despite...

Scott & Company Ltd, a poultry-processing company, is the employer * Canadian Food and Allied Workers Union is the griever * The union requested the Board to review an arbitration made under collective agreement between the company and member of union * The award is the dismissal of Margaret Martelli on September 4, 1975 * She called a newspaper and reported that employees were never asked to do overtime to keep up with the poultry meat that was backing up * She also mentioned that the company had many inefficiencies and mentioned the time women were wasting arguing everyday over irrelevant things as the use of a hose * The company deemed these reports were false and unfounded and Margaret knew that * Margaret was dismissed before this event, but was reinstated in April 1975 after an arbitration board substituted the dismissal with a year of suspension * The Arbitration Board found her comments to be unwarranted, and found she was justly dismissed and did not substitute the company’s decision as done before * The union appealed the decision to the BC Labour Relations Board * The Board denies application under section 108 * After the Board considered the facts involved in Margaret’s dismissal, it considered her suspension as a disciplinary action, where a second opportunity was given, but since the......

Case 11-6 Lessee, Ltd

...other features that the lease does not transfer substantially all risks and rewards incidental to ownership, is classified as an operating lease. The examples and indicators from IAS (17) Leases are not always conclusive and in our case we are solely relying on an accountant’s professional judgment in determining the type of lease we are dealing with. Lessee Ltd. leased equipment from Lessor Inc. for a period of three years and payments of $100,000 due each year. Analyzing examples given in paragraph 10, the equipment reverts back to Lessor Inc. on the expiration of the lease and there is no purchase or renewal options, therefore neither IAS 17-10 (a) nor (b) applies to our lease contract. Similarly, IAS 17-10 (c) does not apply as the equipment is not of such “a specialized nature that only the lessee can use it.” The remaining examples, IAS 17-10 (c) and (d) are taken under our consideration and since there is no specific guidance we need to rely on our professional judgment. The equipment is being leased for a period of three years with the remaining useful life of four years. If we assume that the lease term of three years constitutes the major part of the remaining economic life of the equipment that is four years, we would classify Lessee Ltd.’s lease as a finance lease. Likewise, we could classify the lease as a finance lease under IAS 17-10 (d) if we determine that “the present value of the minimum lease payments amounts to at least substantially all of the fair......

Dorchester Ltd Mini Case

...Dorchester Ltd is a famous high-quality chocolate maker based in the United Kingdom. Through its facilities in the United Kingdom, Dorchester manufactures candies that it sells throughout Western Europe and North America (United States and Canada). Dorchester has been struggling with supplying the United States with their demand of 390,000 pounds (with 5% annual growth rate) of candies. Due to limited production capacity, only 65,000 pounds per year of candies are supplied throughout that region. The company deems that an additional manufacturing facility situated in the U.S would easily supply Dorchester’s product throughout the entire U.S. market and Canada. The current spot exchange rate is US$1.50/GBP, while the U.S is predicting a 3% inflation rate and 5% for the U.K. Dorchester’s expansion possibility to the United States will cost them US$7,000,000 to build a factory. This would allow Dorchester to fulfill all 390,000 pounds expected demand and its profit per pound would increase from US$4.305 to US4.400. The factory has planned to operate for seven years, at that time, the United States Internal Revenue Service considers the factory fully depreciated with straight-line depreciation, but Dorchester’s management suggests that the remaining equipment can be sold for US$2,000,000. Should Dorchester choose to invest in the new U.S factory, they plan to pay it off with a combination of equity capital and debt. The company would borrow at most £2,000,000......
