Background Company A PLC is a company listed on the London Stock Exchange. The company has operated successfully in the manufacturing sector for more than twenty years and for many years has prepared its financial statements in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). Although Company A presents its financial statements in British Pounds (£), its functional currency is the Euro (€). In 20X0 Company A’s board of directors decide to expand Company A’s operations into new types of business and into a geographical location in which it currently does not operate—Sub-Saharan Africa. Accordingly, management selects a number of activities in Southern Africa to be carried out as part of a ten-year diversification plan. The company appoints James and Judith Dowling to manage its African operations, under the brand name The Wild Safari Company (Wild Safari). Wild Safari prepares financial statements in compliance with the IFRS for Small and Medium-sized Entities (SMEs). Events in 20X0–20X2 On 2 January 20X0, Company A incorporates a wholly-owned separate legal entity, Wild Safari, in the Republic of Africania (Africania) by contributing £10,000,000 to form Wild Safari’s permanent capital.
