Repayment of grants:

  • Repayment of grants:
  • If grant becomes repayable – treat as a change in estimate
  • If related to an asset: cumulative amount of additional depreciation that would have been recognized to date is recognized in P&L
  • If related to income: any necessary adjustments are made to current year profit or loss

Grants exclude assistance that cannot reasonably be valued, and transactions between the government and the entity that are in the normal course of business.

  • IAS 20 – part of short-term convergence project with FASB. IAS 20 shortcomings:
  • 1. Inconsistent with the conceptual framework (deferred credits do not meet the definition of a liability)
  • 2. Option allowed now understates an entity’s assets, reducing comparability of the entity’s financial statements (i.e., option to deduct grant from asset acquired)

  • End-of-Chapter Practice
  • 14-1 Iota Inc. receives a $100 government grant to be applied against the construction of a new building. The building is accounted for using the cost model, has an initial cost of $500, a useful life of 25 years and $0 residual value.
  • Instructions
  • (a) Prepare entries to account for the acquisition of the building and receipt of the government grant on Day 1, assuming Iota presents the grant as deferred income, and then assuming it is presented as a reduction of the asset’s cost.
  • (b) Prepare the entry to record depreciation expense at the end of the first year of operations, as well as any other adjusting entries required under each assumption in (a) above.
  • (c) In what respects will the statement of financial position and income statement differ under the two accounting presentations? Does it matter that they are different? Why?

  • End-of Chapter Practice
  • 14-2 Refer to 14-1 above. Assume that after four years of operating in the new building, Iota Inc. decides to transfer its operations to a larger municipality. The original $100 grant is required to be repaid if Iota does not remain in the building for a minimum of seven years.
  • Instructions
  • (a) Prepare the entry(ies) to recognize the grant repayment liability at the end of year 4, assuming Iota recognized the grant originally as deferred income.
  • (b) Prepare the entry(ies) to recognize the grant repayment liability at the end of year 4, assuming Iota recognized the grant originally as a reduction of the asset’s cost.

  • End-of Chapter Practice
  • 14-3 Chi Corp. agreed to locate a new call center in an economically disadvantaged area in return for specific government assistance. The government provided $200 funding to a local college to bring the general education level of a number of residents to an acceptable minimum, $25 toward the cost of a four-week call center employee training program delivered by Chi Corp., and a $50 grant to offset the higher travel and administrative costs to be incurred by Chi over a five-year period. This grant is repayable at the rate of $10 per year for each year less than five years that Chi does not operate in the area.
  • In addition, Chi Corp. is eligible for a 10% wage rebate at the end of each year in which an average of 20 people or more are employed at the operation. The company expects to have more than 23 employees on staff at any time and to operate in this location for a minimum of eight years.
  • Assume the operation opens on July 2, 2009, at which time the $50 grant is received. The employee training program takes place from July 5 to August 3 and Chi receives the $25 grant in early September. The payroll for the first six months for the 27 full-time employees hired is $400.
  • Instructions
  • (a) Prepare all entries related to government assistance that need to be made by Chi Corp. from July 1 to December 31, 2009, Chi’s fiscal year end. Identify any situations where there are alternatives.
  • (b) Identify the government assistance disclosures that are required for Chi’s December 31, 2009 financial statements.
