Study Session 6: Financial Reporting and Analysis: An Introduction

#47 June 2015 Mock AM


I think the both B and C are answers to number 47. The Exam Solution shows C. Does anyone know why its not B? I checked my materials, and it seems B is listed as what the auditor should also state.

IFRS lost recovery


I’m reviewing LOS 30.h and am not certain about lost recovery under IFRS. Let’s assume an asset was brought 3 years ago. During the first year, write down due to impairments was $10,000. The write down was $15,000 in the second year. In year 3, the fair value minus selling costs is $20,000 more than the carrying value. That means the write up in the third year would be $20,000, or would it be $15,000?

Thanks for your helps

Complex structure


Would callable bonds make it a complex structure, or is that not enough?


Diluted EPS


If I was to compute diluted EPS with convertible bond, warrants, convertible preferred stocks, and 3 for 1 stock split in November, should the shares of convertible bond, warrants, and convertible preferred stocks all be multiplied by 3 in the denominator?


Difference between IFRS and GAAP

I’ve seen a lot of posts recently asking about the differences between IFRS and GAAP and how to remember which is which, and which one to use on the exam. 

Yes–there are some differences between IFRS and GAAP.  But they’re 95% the same.  Compared to the similarities, the differences are few and you have to dig pretty deep to get to them.
