CA Inter (New Syllabus) | Paper 5 | Advanced Accounting | Question Paper Solution

Question No. 1 is compulsory. Attempt any four out of remaining five questions. Working notes
should form part of your answer.

1. (a) (i) AP Ltd., a construction contractor, undertakes the construction of commercial complex for
Kay Ltd. AP Ltd. submitted separate proposals for each of 3 units of commercial complex. A single
agreement is entered into between the two parties. The agreement lays down the value of each of the
3 units, i.e. Rs. 50 Lakh, Rs. 60 Lakh and Rs. 75 Lakh respectively. Agreement also lays down the
completion time for each unit. Comment, with reference to AS-7, whether AP Ltd., should treat it as
a single contract or three separate contracts.
Solution: Provision of Accounting Standard(AS) – 7 As per AS 7 ‘Construction Contracts’, when a
contract covers a number of assets, the construction of each asset should be treated as a separate
construction contract when: (a) separate proposals have been submitted for each asset; (b) each asset
has been subject to separate negotiation and the contractor and customer have been able to accept or
reject that part of the contract relating to each asset; and (c) the costs and revenues of each asset can
be identified. In the given case, each unit is submitted as a separate proposal, which can be
separately negotiated, and costs and revenues thereof can be separately identified. Hence, each asset
will be treated as a “single contract” even if there is one single agreement for contracts. Therefore,
three separate contract accounts must be recorded and maintained in the books of AP Ltd. For each
contract, principles of revenue and cost recognition must be applied separately and net income will
be determined for each asset as per AS 7.
(ii) On 1st December, 2017, GR Construction Co. Ltd. undertook a contract to construct a building
for 45 lakhs. On 31st March, 2018, the company found that it had already spent Rs. 32.50 lakhs on
the construction. Additional cost of completion is estimated at Rs. 15.10 lakhs. What amount should
be charged to revenue in the final accounts for the year ended 31" March, 2018 as per provisions of
Solution: As per AS-7, “Construction Contracts” profit/loss to be taken to profit & Loss Account
and additional provision for foreseeable loss is calculated as follows:-
(i) Calculation of % of Completion:-
Total Cost Incurred till date x 100
Total Estimated Cost of completion
= 32,50,000 x 100
32,50,000 + 15,10,000
= 68.28%
(ii) Calculation of revenue to be recognized =
Contract Price x % of completion
= 45,00,000 X 68.28 % = 30,72,600
(iii) Calculation of loss recognised on contract
Contract Revenue recognised 30,72,600
Less:- Total cost incurred (32,50,000) = 1,77,400
(iv) Calculation of total expected loss on contract
Contract Price = 45,00,000
Less:- Total estimated cost to be incurred = 47,60,000
Total Expected loss on contract = 2,60,000
(v) Calculation of provision for expected loss:-

Total Expected loss on contract = 2,60,000
Less: Total loss recognised on contract = (1,77,400)
Provision for expected loss = 82,600
(vi) Loss of Rs. 2,60,000 (1,77,400 + 82,600) is be to recognized immediately by debiting into profit
& loss account

(b) Given below are the following information's of M/s B.S. Ltd.
(i) Goods of Z Rs. 50,000 were sold on 18-03-2018 but at the request of the buyer these were
delivered on 15-04-2018.
(ii) On 13-01-2018 goods of Rs. 1,25,000 were sent on consignment basis of which 20% of the
goods unsold are lying with the consignee as on 31-03-2018.
(iii) Rs. 1,00,000 worth of goods were sold on approval basis 01-12-2017. The period of approval
was 3 months after which they were considered sold. Buyer sent approval for 75% goods up to 31-
01-2018 and no approval or disapproval received for the remaining goods till 31-03-2018.
You are required to advise the accountant of M/s B.S. Ltd., with valid 'reasons, the amount to be
recognized as revenue for the year ended 31st March, 2018 in above cases in the context of AS-9.
Suggested Response:
As per AS-9, “Revenue recognition” In a transaction involving the sale of goods, performance
should be regarded as being achieved when the following conditions have been fulfilled:
a. the seller of goods has transferred to the buyer the property in the goods for a price or all
significant risks and rewards of ownership have been transferred to the buyer and the seller retains
no effective control of the goods transferred to a degree usually associated with ownership; and
b. no significant uncertainty exists regarding the amount of the consideration that will be derived
from the sale of the goods.
Also, as per Appendix on AS-9, Revenue should be recognised notwithstanding that physical
delivery has not been completed so long as there is every expectation that delivery will be made.
However, the item must be on hand, identified and ready for delivery to the buyer at the time the
sale is recognised rather than there being simply an intention to acquire or manufacture the goods in
time for delivery.
In the given case treatment shall be as follows:-
Case I:- Sale of Rs. 50,000 shall be recorded as Risk and Rewards have been transferred.
Case II:- Sale equal to 80% (1,25,000*80%) Rs. 1,00,000 shall be recorded
Case III:- Since period of approval of 3 months has expired so entire amount of sale i.e. Rs.
1,00,000 shall be recorded.
(c) Jaya Ltd. took a machine on lease from Deluxe Ltd., the fair value being Z Rs. 11,50,000.
Economic life of the machine as well as lease term is 4 years. At the end of each year, lessee pays
Rs. 3,50,000 to lessor. Jaya Ltd. has guaranteed a residual value of Rs. 70,000 on expiry of the lease
to Deluxe Ltd., however Deluxe Ltd. estimates that residual value will be only Rs. 25,000. The
implicit rate of return is 10% p.a. and present value factors at 10% are : 0.909, 0.826, 0.751 and
0.683 at the end of 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th year respectively. Calculate the value of machinery to be
considered by Jaya Ltd. and the value of the lease liability as per AS – 19.
Suggested Answer : As per AS-19, “Lease” the value of machinery and the value of the lease
liability will be lower of the following two:-
(i) Fair value of leased asset = Rs. 11,50,000; or
(ii) Present value of minimum lease payment from point view of lessee = Rs. 11,56,950
Calculation of Present value of minimum lease payment from point view of lessee:


Year endedMLPDiscount Rate 10%Present Value

Therefore, value of machinery to be considered by Jaya Ltd. and the value of the lease liability shall be  Rs. 11,50,000.

As such Company can buy back 35,000 Equity Shares as it is within the provisions of Companies Act, 2013 

Working Note

Amount transferred to CRR and maximum equity to be bought back will be calculated by simultaneous equation method.

Suppose amount transferred to CRR account is ‘x’ and maximum permitted buyback of equity is ‘y’.


(45,00,000 – x) – 23,25,000 = y (1)

(y/ 30) x 10 = x =                       ( 2)  

by solving the above equation, we get

x = Rs. 5,43,750 y = Rs. 16,31,250


As per Section 68 (2) (d) of the Companies Act 2013, the ratio of debt owed by the company should not be more than twice the capital and its free reserves after such buy-back. Further under Section 69 (1), on buy-back of shares out of free reserves a sum equal to the nominal value of the share bought back shall be transferred to Capital Redemption Reserve (CRR). 

As per section 69 (2) utilization of CRR is restricted to fully paying up unissued shares of the Company which are to be issued as fully paid-up bonus shares only. It means CRR is not available for distribution as dividend. Hence, CRR is not a free reserve. Therefore, for calculation of future equity i.e. share capital and free reserves, amount transferred to CRR on buy-back has to be excluded from the present equity.

However, company wants to buy-back only 35,000 equity shares @ Rs. 30. Therefore, buy-back of 35,000 shares, as desired by the company is within the provisions of the Companies Act, 2013.
