Acquired for use in operations and not for Acquired operations not resale resale 2. Long-term in nature and usually subject to Long-term amortization 3. Possess physical substance 3. Possess physical Accounting Issues Accounting Issues • Acquisition (Ch10) – – – Acquisition cost Other cost issues Cost subsequent to acquisition • Subsequent valuation on B/S date (Ch11) – Amortization – Impairment • Disposition (Ch11) • Financial statement presentation and analysis Financial (Ch11) (Ch11) Acquisition Cost Acquisition Cost • Historical cost is the basis for determining cost • Acquisition cost includes: – the asset’s cash or cash equivalent price, and – the cost of readying the asset for its intended use • Cost depends on types of assets acquired - Cost of land - Cost of building - Cost of equipment - Cost of self-constructed assets - Cost of natural resources Cost of Land Cost of Land • Land costs include: 1. Purchase price 2. Closing costs (title, legal, and recording fees) 3. Costs of getting land ready for use (such as removal of old building, clearing, grading, filling and draining) 4. Assumption of liens (liabilities, obligations) - e.g. unpaid mortgage, unpaid property tax e.g. 1. Additional improvements with an indefinite life Sale of salvaged materials reduces cost of land • Land Improvements Land Improvements • PERMANENT improvements to the land are added to the Land account to • Permanent improvements include – Permanent improvements made by the owner (e.g. Permanent landscaping, trees, etc.) landscaping, – Special amounts assessed for local improvements Special assess (e.g. street lights, sidewalks, sewers) – will be (e.g. maintained and replaced by government maintained • Improvements with LIMITED liife (such as driveways, Improvements LIMITED l walkways, fences, and parking lots) are recorded in a separate Land Improvements account Land – These costs are separated from Land as they are These amortized over their estimated useful lives amortized Cost of Buildings Cost of Buildings • Costs include all costs directly related to buying or constructing the building cost of materials, labor, and overhead cost professional fees and building permits professional acquisition costs acquisition etc. etc. Cost to remove old building for Cost to remove old building for construction of a new building • If the old building is purchased with land If purchased -> Capitalized as part of land cost -> land • If the old building is owned and used by the If owned company company - > Expensed as a loss on disposal of old building Expensed • If the old building is leased by the company If leased by - > Capitalized under Leasehold Improvement Capitalized Leasehold and amortized over the lesser of the remaining lease life and the useful life lease - > Improvement becomes property of lessor Improvement when lease expires when Cost of Equipment Cost of Equipment • Costs include all necessary and reasonable costs Costs necessary incurred to get asset ready for its intended use incurred • Includes : – Purchase price • GST and HST paid are usually treated as tax credit GST (according to tax laws), and therefore normally not included as cost of equipment included • They should be used to reduce tax payable – Freight and handling charges – Costs of special foundation, assembly and Costs installation installation – Trial runs – Etc. Self­Constructed Assets Self­Constructed Assets • These are assets constructed by the business for use in operations • The cost of self-constructed assets includes: • Direct materials, • Direct labour, • Variable manufacturing overhead Self­Constructed Assets Self­Constructed Assets • Fixed Overhead (FOH) (e.g., heat, power, light, insurance) are accounted for in one of three ways: one 1. No FOH allocated to the asset’s cost 2. Portion of all FOH allocated to the asset - A full costing concept full - Assume the assignment of FOH to assets constructed should be treated in the same way as that to products manufactured way 1. FOH allocated based on lost production - An opportunity cost concept; attractive theoretically, but hard to measure theoretically, - FOH contributed to asset construction represent an opportunity cost of lost production of regular manufacturing Self­Constructed Assets Self­Constructed Assets • CICA Handbook, Section 3061: – Allows for allocation of some portion of some FOH to the asset (i.e., any overhead costs directly attributable to the construction activity are allocated to the asset’s cost) asset’s – If the allocated FOH results in total If construction costs being more than the costs that would be charged by an outside independent producer, the excess FOH should be recorded as a period loss period Interest Costs During Construction Interest Costs During Construction • Three available methods 1. 2. 3. • • No interest capitalized All costs of financing employed are capitalized All costs Internal financing (net income) External financing (equity and/or debt) Only actual interest costs are capitalized (that is, cost of debt financing) - the most common most approach in practice approach Note that, in Canada, capitalization of interest is allowed Note but not required by GAAP but FASB and IASB’s position: – – Require capitalization of actual interest cost Require actual However, FASB and IASB have different However, opinions on how the actual interest cost is determined (e.g. what are qualifying assets, period of capitalization, and the amount to Class Exercise Class Exercise Indicate whether the following costs are recorded in Indicate Land, Land Improvement, Building, or other accounts. accounts.

Fair value of either the asset given up or the asset being received, whichever is more reliably measurable (fair value more fair treatment) treatment 2. Book value (carrying value) of the asset given up plus any cash paid to change hand (book value treatment) hand Illustration: Illustration: Exchange of Non­monetary Assets Example Co. 1 (asset A) Co. 2 (asset B) Example Co.

Amort. 5,800 Old asset 7,600 Old Cash 500 Cash Fair Value Treatment Fair Value Treatment vs. Book Value Treatment • Both treatments record the disposal of the old Both asset asset • Both treatments record the cash payment • The fair value treatment records the new asset The fair at fair value ($4,500); and a gain ($2,200) is recognized recognized • The book value treatment records the new The book asset at book value of the old asset ($1,800) plus cash paid ($500); and no gain is recognized recognized Which treatment to use? Which Treatment to Use? Which Treatment to Use? • The basic principle is the fair value treatment principle fair • That is, the non-monetary exchange is valued That at: at: – the fair value of the asset(s) given up, or given – the fair value of the asset(s) received received whichever is more reliably measurable, and more – gain or loss on the exchange is recognized in income in Which Treatment to Use? Which Treatment to Use? EXCEPTION to basic principle: basic • If one or more of the following conditions exist: 1. transaction lacks commercial substance, 1. transaction 2. fair values are not determinable, 2. fair 3. exchange merely to facilitate a sale to 3. exchange customers customers • Then the book value treatment should be used the book should – new asset cost equals book value of assets new book given up plus any cash paid to change hands given any – No gain or loss is recognized Commercial Substance Commercial Substance The transaction has commercial substance when The commercial there is a change in the company’s expected future cash flows (risk, timing, amount) – e.g. exchange truck for equipment truck => Fair value treatment => Which fair value to use: fair value of asset acquired or Which fair acquired given up? – Whichever gives more reliable estimate given Whichever estimate Consider Case 1 Case 2 Case 3 Case Case Fair value of asset given up $16,000 $100,000 $73,000 Fair value of asset received 50,000 ? ?

When the contribution is not made by owner When e.g. contributor is employee, charity, or government => Income Approach: Donation is viewed as deferred income and is recognized in the deferred period the asset is used period a) Cost Reduction Method Investment Tax Credit (ITC) Investment Tax Credit (ITC) • Governed by tax legislation; an incentive an provided by government to encourage investment investment • Income tax is reduced in the year of acquisition by a prescribed percentage of the cost of eligible capital assets cost • ITCs are accounted for following the ITCs Accounting Standards Board policy for government contributions; taken into income using either using 1. Cost Reduction Method, or 2. Deferral Method Contribution of Assets: Example Contribution of Assets: Example A company received $225,000 as donation to upgrade its equipment facility. Prepare entry to record the transaction. Capital Approach (if the donation is made by owner) Cash 225,000 Cash Donated Capital 225,000 Donated The N/I of current and future period is not affected as a result of this The not transaction transaction Income Approach (if the amt. is a government grant or ITC) a) Cost Reduction Method Cash 225,000 Equipment 225,000 The N/I of future period is increased (as a result of decreased amorti. exp.) increased b) Deferral Method: Cash Cash Deferred Revenue Deferred 225,000 225,000 The N/I of future period is increased (when defer. rev. becomes rev.) The increased Costs Subsequent to Acquisition Costs Subsequent to Acquisition • • • If costs incurred achieve greater future benefits, capitalize costs (Capital expenditure) If costs do not add to future benefits, expense costs (Revenue expenditure) Major types of expenditures are: 1. Additions: Increase or extension of existing assets 2. Improvements and replacements: Substitution of an improved asset for an existing asset 3. Rearrangement and reinstallation: Moving an asset from one location to another 4. Repairs: Costs that maintain assets in good operating condition 1. Additions: normally capitalized 2. Improvements and replacements: normally capitalized 3. Rearrangement and reinstallation Normally capitalized unless the original rearrangement or reinstallation costs are unknown AND amount is immaterial 4. Repairs: Normally expensed; however, for major repairs that benefit more than one period (such as engine overhaul), practice has been to capitalize Costs Subsequent to Acquisition: Costs Subsequent to Acquisition Accounting Treatment Capitalization Approaches Capitalization Approaches • If the costs are to be capitalized, two If approaches are available depending on whether carrying value of asset is known whether a. Carrying value of asset is known a. known – Substitution approach Substitution b. Carrying value of the asset is unknown unknown – Capitalize the new asset (without removing the Capitalize old asset from the pool), or old – Debit accumulated amortization (when Debit expenditures extend useful life of asset) expenditures Capitalization Approaches: Example Capitalization Approaches: Example A shingle roof with an original cost of $20,000 is replaced by a fireproof tile roof costing $60,000. Record the replacement. Assume it is known that the Assume roof is 80% depreciated roof Substitution () Substitution To remove old roof To Accum.

Under IFRS, component depreciation is required if components of an asset have differing patterns of benefit. Major repairs or overhauls are capitalized as part of the cost of the asset with Major the estimated cost of the part of the asset repaired or overhauled and the related accumulated depreciation removed from the accounts. Borrowing costs that are incurred during acquisition, construction or production Borrowing of qualifying assets are must be capitalized as part of the asset’s cost, provided they meet the definition of an asset. Under IFRS, investment property is separately defined under IAS 40. Under Investment property may be measured after recognition using either the cost Investment model or the fair value model. Since IFRS requires separate recognition for investment properties, many Since disclosures are required detailing information regarding the investment properties. The fair value of the investment property has to be reported, even if the cost 7 The 4 model is used. • • • • • • GAAP versus IFRS Comparison 1.
