Charleston Corporation operates a branch operation in a foreign country. Although this branch operates in euros, the U.S. dollar is its functional currency. Thus, a remeasurement is necessary to produce financial information for external reporting purposes. The branch began the year with 504,000 euros in cash and no other assets or liabilities. However, the branch immediately used 312,000 euros to acquire a warehouse. On May 1, it purchased inventory costing 127,000 euros for cash that it sold on July 1 for 182,000 euros cash. The branch transferred 26,000 euros to the parent on October 1 and recorded depreciation on the warehouse of 11,000 euros for the year. Currency exchange rates for 1 euro follow:

 

     January 1$1.47=1 euro , May 11.51=1,   July 11.53=1 , October 11.51=1,  December 311.41=1, Average for the year 1.49=1 

 

What is the remeasurement gain or loss to be recognized in the consolidated income statement?
