Once the machine was delivered it was installed and calibrated. This cost $1,250. The transport and calibration costs were paid on 2nd and the 6th July respectively.

The production manager estimated that the machine would have a useful life of 10 years and that at the end of that time it would be worth $2,250.

The company depreciates all of its equipment using the straight-line method. All depreciation calculations are measured to the nearest month. The financial year ends on the 30th June.

At the start of July 2017, in a review of the non-current assets, the chief financial officer was informed by the production manager that, because of recent technological advances, the company should revise the total useful life of the 3D printer from an original of 10 years to a remaining life of 5 years, and that the expected scrap value should be revised downwards to $1,505. These adjustments were implemented in
the depreciation charge for the year to 30th June 2018.

The company decided to move from the cost model to the revaluation model for equipment on 30 June
2018. An external valuer was employed to conduct the valuation and the 3D printer was given a fair value of $43,000 at that date.

On 30 June 2019, depreciation for the year was charged and the 3D printer’s carrying amount was revalued to a fair value of $27,121.

1. The Northern Territory Environmental Protection Agency (NTEPA) has been investigating an alleged release of toxic chemicals into the Francis Bay Mooring Basin at the beginning of June
2016. An investigator visited the Duck Pond to establish whether the company was responsible for the leak. The NTEPA report was handed down on 12th August 2016 which determined that Firebrand Ltd was responsible for the chemical release and required that the company pay
damages totalling $1,750,000.
2. On 14 July 2016 it was discovered that a customer had been delivered goods on 26th June 2016 which proved to be faulty. Consequently Firebrand Ltd authorised the issue of credit notes worth $43,000.

2016. At a subsequent meeting the liquidator informed unsecured creditors that at best they could receive a distribution of 15 cents in the dollar. Torches Ltd’s factory and warehouse were destroyed by a fire in July 2016 and as the insurance policy had lapsed the damage was not covered by insurance.
Assume all events or transactions are material. Required
In relation to the above events or transactions, prepare the necessary disclosure notes or general journal entries to comply with applicable accounting standards and give reasons for your decisions.

Q5. The Beaufort Dairy Company Ltd has run for many years dairy farms in Victoria. In addition to the farms it has vertically integrated by purchasing factories that produce milk products. These products are then are further developed in other factories owned by the company by producing high grade yoghurts.

The chief financial officer for the company has asked your advice on how AASB 136 Impairment of Assets, should be applied to the company’s various activities. In particular she wishes to correctly identify the cash-generating units (CGUs) for the company.

One issue is whether the milk production section is a separate CGU even though the company does not sell milk directly to other entities but uses the products within its own vertically integrated structure or should it should be included in the milk-based products CGU.


Write a business report to the chief financial officer of The Beaufort Dairy Company Ltd, including the following:
1. Define a CGU.
2. Explain why impairment testing requires the use of CGUs, rather than being based on single assets.
3. Explain the factors that the chief financial officer should consider in determining the CGUs for
The Beaufort Dairy Company Ltd.
4. Pay particular attention to referencing your advice to the relevant paragraphs of the accounting standard.
