To all,
Can any one clarify whether it is necessary for provision for
commission to agents to be made for the premiums not yet received, at
the end of every month.
jay

For any provision, I think you’d first need to look at IAS 37 paragraph 14.
Is there a present obligation as a result of a past event?
Is it probable that there will be an outflow of resources to settle
the obligation?
Can the amount be reasonably estimated?
Whether or not the premiums have been received is not relevant.

If you want to do hedge accounting you will be required to do a lot of prospective and retrospective testing to prove the effectiveness of your hedges. If you don’t do hedge …

Dear All,
The Company was incorporated in Oct 2007.Could you please give your
expert opinion on the treatment of preliminary expenses (Revenue
generation is not yet started) e.g. rent, salary, traveling etc.
incurred during Oct 2007- Aug 2008. Please reply in reference to IFRS.
Revenue is expected in Sept 2008.
In my view, preliminary expenses can be accumulated and amortized when
revenue is started due to matching concept.
BestRegards,
Hemant

Preliminary expenses / startup costs, etc. cannot be deferred. They
have to be charged off to income statement in the year of actual
startup of operations.

Thanks & Regards

Dear Experts,
Please give your export opinion on the following query:
The Company issues lease agreement for 12 months for rent of 120000
from 1 Jan 2008 to 31 Dec 2008. The Company gives concession for 2
months from 1 Jan 2008 to 28 Feb 2008 for 20000 i.e. a customer has to
pay 100,000.
Rent Amortization : Spread 12000 monthly over 12 months
Concession : Spread over concession period 2 months 10000 monthly
Do you think that concession should have been amortized over 12 months period.
Please mention the reference of IFRS.

We are constucting a new building in our factory for which we of
course capitalize all the costs involved. However to build the new
building we had to tare down the old building that still had some book
value. Does anyone know if we would be able to capitalize the
bookvalue of the old building as part of the costs to construct the
new building or do we need to take the old book value directly to P&L?
Best regards,
John

You can capitalize demolition costs themselves, but need to write-down
the Book Value of old building, because its …

I’m a CPA from the US. Is the ACCA something I should join? I’m a
member of the IMA and the AICPA in the US. Is ACCA some kind of
upstart or does anyone find it to add value to their careers and is it
recognized by global employers?
Thanks for the opinions, mostly just curious here.

Dear Justin,
ACCA is a British qualification mostly recognisted by European based
mutlinational corporations, British in particular. Please also consider
CIMA which is also Brtish qualification with more focus on management
accounting (controlling). With both qualifications you can take IFRS
path.

Where can I find the training centre for IFRS in Mumbai – India, if I
register for course in IFRS with ACCA.

ACCA provides Certification and Diploma in IFRS. You can take either
one of them as both are recognised. Certification is online but
Diploma in IFRS has examinations that are held every June & December
with exam center being in Mumbai.

What are the diferences between the two accounting policies?

IAS was in use before the introduction of IFRS. With effect from the introduction of IFRS, only IAS before the introduction of IFRS is stil in use. Any other international standard that will be issued will now be IFRS but not IAS.
 
Femi

In my view except the change in nomenaclature there is no much difference in the basic strategy of the standardization process. Ofcourse prior to 2001 (1973-2001) IAS International Accounting Standards were used to be issued by the IASC (International Accounting Standards Committee) and …
