    Dear Sirs, I studied in Dr. Gary Leung ACCA P2 course on Aug to Sept this year! I have following questions: 1. When an e-payment (Debit card) company received deposit from customers, some of them will be used but balance payment keep in e-payment (Debit card) company (example, Autoplus or 共享單車 or 微信支付--) 2. Where is balance payment in the statement of Financial Position? I think that it can't put as revenue because the customer still not consume the balance payment. 3. Where is the balance payment in the statement of cash flow? In the Operating activities? Victor,

    I'm confuse in: In lease IFRS 16 - lease for a low value asset - slide 87 Lessee can elect to use simplified accounting consistently for particular class of underlying asset. Illustration 15 slide 89 Lessee can elect to apply simplified accounting to the leases. ⋯⋯, as the election is available on a lease-by-lease basis.

Short-term leases – made by class of underlying asset Low value assets – lease by lease basis

    In Earnings per share (IAS 33) PPT, bonus fraction for adjustment of previous year is (no. of shs before bonus shs) / no. of shs after bonus shs. but does it take into the consideration of time the bonus shs issued? in illustration 3, for weighted average no of shares in 2016 should be 175,000shs if 25,000shs for 1-3/2016 and 150,000 shs for 4-12/2016 so the adjustment for previous year is 100,000/175,000? or we don't need to take consideration if the bonus issue is not a whole year event so that for 1 for 1 bonus shs, the previous year adjustment is 1/2? Thanks

Key point: Bonus issues …..as if the bonus issues had occurred at the beginning of the earliest period presented. For last year: It is already taken into consideration of time issue as if it were issued on 1 Jan 2015. For current year: It is also taken into consideration of time issue as if it were issued on 1 Jan 2015. Therefore, the total number of shares are 200,000. I always use the table format to present the computation of WANOS in order to reduce the mistake on calculation. This is only a matter of presentation of the 200,000 shs in the current year.

    Fair value Measurement 29 June 2017 One error in the slide 43 IFRS 16 – Insurance contract (replaces IFRS 4 in 2021) --> IFRS 16 - Leases

Reply: Time : 03 July 2017 00:04

Thanks for pointing out the typo. It should be IFRS 17, not IFRS 16.

    IFRS 5 question A parent put a wholly-owned subsidiary for sale on 31 Mar 2017, the intention of sale was announced on 15 May 2017 and no buyer has been identified. If no buyer is found before 31 Mar 2018, the subsidiary would be discontinued. If the subsidiary is discontinued, the parent would retain the subsidiary's trademarks of $10m. Investment in subsidiary: $40m Fair value less cost of sale: $35m The financial year end date is 31 Mar 2017. Given the sale is not guaranteed, is it correct to use 10m as initial measurement?

Reply: Time : 04 June 2017 10:21

IFRS 5 is not applied at 31 March 2017 as the recognition criteria are not met. Instead, IAS 36 shall apply for at 31 March 2017.

    Initial recognition of goodwill no deferred tax, why deferred tax should be debited to goodwill?

  • Document : image.jpg

Reply: Time : 31 May 2017 00:04

It refers to two different statements. 1) Deferred tax is not required for goodwill itself. 2) Deferred tax arises on the fair value adjustments of identifiable assets should be adjusted to Goodwill.
