Question 3 [28 marks]

Topic 6A: Accounting for revaluation of assets

On 1 July 2015, Genesis Ltd acquired two items of machinery: Machine G at a cost of $400,000 and Machine Q at $300,000. At the date of acquisition, Genesis’s directors determine to depreciate the machinery on a straight-line basis. Machine G has an estimated useful life of 10 years and an estimated residual value of $40,000. Machine Q has an estimated useful life of 5 years with no estimated residual value.

On 30 June 2016, Genesis Ltd decided to adopt the revaluation model subsequent to acquisition. The fair values of Machine G and Q is $380,000 and $200,000 respectively. The useful life for Machine G at 30 June 2016 is estimated to be 8 years. Other than this, there is no change in the estimated useful life and residual value for the machinery.

On 30 June 2017, the fair values of Machine G & Q are $300,000 and $160,000 respectively.

Assume a tax rate of 30%

Patent 150,000
Receivables 16,000
Inventory 87,000
