Additional Information

1. All depreciable assets were acquired on 1 July 2015. For financial reporting purposes, depreciation is recognised on a straight line basis, over 20 years for buildings (estimated residual value $250,000), eight years for plant and 10 years for equipment. For tax purposes, straight line depreciation is applied over 40, 10 and eight years respectively. 2. After reviewing all relevant information, the directors determined that, at 30 June 2018, the plant was impaired by $250,000 (this is not reflected in the amounts presented in the trial balance). 3. On 30 June 2018, after careful consideration, the directors of Bula Island Ltd decided to adopt the fair value model for land; the fair value of land on 1 July 2017 was $3,500,000 and on 30 June 2018 was $3,250,000. 4. The research and development expenditure qualifies for the additional 25% taxation deduction. 5. The tax rate at 30 June 2017 was 30%. On 15 June 2018, legislation was enacted decreasing the tax rate to 25% effective 1 July 2018.

Question 2

Viti Ltd has three divisions, Dairy, Yoghurt and Chocolate, which operate independently of each other to produce milk products. The company has a headquarters and a research centre located in Nausori, with the divisions located throughout Fiji. The research centre interacts with all the divisions to assist in the improvement of the manufacturing process and the quality of the products manufactured by the entity. 

There is not as yet any basis on which to determine how the work of the research centre will be allocated to each of the three divisions, as this will depend on priorities of the company overall and issues that arise in each division. The company headquarters provides approximately equal services to each of the divisions, but an immaterial amount to the research centre. 

Neither the headquarters nor the research centre generates cash inflows. 

On 30 June 2018, the net assets of Viti Ltd were as follows:

 Dairy Division

Yoghurt Division

Chocolate Division

Head Office Research Centre Land $ 440,000 $ 280,000 $ 160,000 $ 110,000 $ 67,000 Plant and equipment 840,000 620,000 540,000 80,000 45,000 Accumulated depreciation (240,000) (200,000) (160,000) (10,000) (12,000) Inventories 240,000 180,000 140,000 0 0 Accounts receivable 120,000 100,000 60,000          0          0 1,400,000 980,000 740,000 180,000 100,000 Liabilities 120,000 100,000 100,000           0           0 Net Assets 1,280,000 880,000 640,000 180,000 100,000

Management of Viti Ltd believes there are economic indicators to suggest that the company's assets may be impaired. Accordingly, they have had recoverable amount assessed for each of the divisions: Dairy Division  $ 1,550,000 Yoghurt Division       1,000,000 Chocolate Division        750,000

The land held by Dairy division was measured at fair value using the revaluation model because of the specialised nature of the land. At 30 June 2018, the fair value was $440,000. The land held by Yoghurt division was measured at cost, and had a fair value less cost to sell of $270,264 at 30 June 2018. 


Provide journal entries to account for the impairment of Viti Ltd as at 30 June 2018. Show all relevant working where required.
