Dear all.

I have a question on valuation of equity investments.
What is the best method to value an unquoted investment

Well for unquoted investment you could:
If there is substantial market and volume of such equity in the market then, you could value it using market price.
If there is not market, or if, say due to the legal implications (private co. for example), the equity cant have liquidity in the market due to restrictions in transferring such shares, net worth (intrinsic value) method can be used.
There are other options for valuations …

Dear friends,
Can you please give your opinion for the capitalization of the followings:
Modification to Existing Car Park
Construction of Temporary Car Park
Refurnish-Cooling Tower

I think that all of these costs should be capitalized.


I agree with Hesham, it is to be capitalised, modification & refurnishing
extends the life of the existing asset, thus providing future benefits.& for Construction of Temporary Car Park, it is to be seen as to how
temporary is the car park. If it does not give you future benefits, like a
park for a couple of months, I think it should be …

Dear all,

Can you share me the international auditing standard document. Thanks

Danella,I double checked after the comment below, and I agree with Hemant. IAS 21.28 explicitly states that gains/losses on forex should be recognized in P&L. The forex is not attributable to the asset but to the financial liability.http://www.ifac.org/IAASB/
My apologies for my earlier answer.

Dear all,
An answer to the following question would be much appreciated:

I would need your assistance on how to account for futures/options in the financial statements.

Dear all

My Company has an outstanding USD loan of say US$10m and as our main subsidiaries are operating in China and earns revenue denominated in RMB, which will ultimately flow to our company in terms of RMB dividend (converted to USD due to exchange regulation in PRC).
As we need to make periodic payments say US$1m every quarter, we are considering entering forex contracts to fix the USD/RMB rate that matches the payments (i.e. 10 contracts @US$1m each @ either same conversion price or different conversion price).
How should we disclose …

Dear all,
As I know , as per IFRS there is no prior year adjustment anymore ,
and back dated entries are not allowed once the year closed and
figures reported , Hence the actual variance will be booked in the
next year PL ,

provision for this income for 1M $ in 2007
The actual income received in 2008 for 2M$ , the
accounting entry will be reversing the 1M$ provision and Book the 1M$
variance in 2008 PL
My question is , As per …

Any one please clarify me this….

Hi Team,
Will any one clarify the difference between Exceptional Items &
Extraordinary Items?
With reference to IFRS what is the disclosure policy for the both.
Thanks & Regards,

Hi Hari,
to my understanding according to IAS 1 there was for several years the
possibility to show extraordinary items in the P+L (IAS 1.85). Since
2004 this seems to be no longer allowed according to Dr. David
Grünberger who is member in the Accounting Regulatory Committee in
Brussels which decides upon the endorsement of new IAS/IFRS standards
within the EU. According to US-GAAP extraordinary items are …
