Crossbow Ltd is an entity that specialises in the manufacture of leather footwear for women. It has aggressively undertaken a strategy of buying out other companies that had competing products. These companies were liquidated and the assets and liabilities brought into Crossbow Ltd.

At 30 June 2015, Crossbow Ltd reported the following assets in its statement of financial position:


                   Land                                                                      $200 000

                   Inventory products                                                 180 000

                   Brand ‘Crossbow Shoes’                                       160 000

                   Shoe factory                                                            700 000

                   Machinery for manufacturing shoes                    400 000

                   Goodwill on acquisition of competing companies  40 000

                                                                                                $1 680 000

Because of the competition from overseas as customers pursue a strategy of buying online rather than visit Crossbow Ltd’s stores, Crossbow Ltd assessed its impairment position at 30 June 2015. The indicators suggested that an impairment loss was probable. Crossbow Ltd calculated a recoverable amount of its company of $1 420 000. The fair value less costs of disposal of the land was $171 000.
