Rockbuster is a conglomerate dealing in various industries. The company is faced with following issues while preparing financial statements for the year ending 31st December 2013; a) Rockbuster has recently purchased an item of earth moving plant at a total cost of Rials 24 million. The plant has an estimated life of 10 years with no residual value; however its engine will need replacing after every 5,000 hours of use at an estimated cost of Rials 7.5 million. The directors of Rockbuster intend to depreciate the plant at Rials 2.4 million (Rials 24 million/10) per annum and make a provision of Rials 1,500 (Rials 7.5 million/5,000 hours) per hour of use for the replacement of the engine. b) On 1 October 2013, Rockbuster acquired a newly constructed oil platform at a cost of Rials 30 million together with the right to extract oil from an offshore oilfield under a government licence. The terms of the licence are that Promoil will have to remove the platform (which will then have no value) and restore the sea bed to an environmentally satisfactory condition in 10 years time when the oil reserves have been exhausted. The estimated cost of this in 10 years time will be Rials 15 million. The present value of Rial 1 receivable in 10 years at the appropriate discount rate for Rockbuster of 8% is Rial 0.46. c) On 1 October 2013, Rockbuster also commenced the extraction of crude oil from a new well on the seabed. The cost of a 10 year licence to extract the oil well was Rials 50 million. At the end of extraction, although not legally bound to do so, Rockbuster intends to make good the damage the extraction has caused to the seabed environment. This intention has been communicated to parties external to Rockbuster. d) Rockbuster also sells sports goods and clothing through a chain of retail outlets. It offers customers a full refund facility for any goods returned within 28 days of their purchase provided they are unused and in their original packing. Sales in last 28 days of the trading year to 31 December 2013 were Rials 1,750,000. Generally 10% of customers come back to claim refund. e) On 15th January 2014 the companys auditors discovered a fraud in the material requisitions department. A senior member of staff who took up employment with Rockbuster in March 2013 had been authorizing payment for goods that had never been received. The payments were made to a fictitious company that cannot be traced. The member of staff was immediately dismissed. Calculations show that the total amount of the fraud to the date of its discovery was Rials 240,000. The company has contacted its insurers in respect of this fraud. Rockbuster is insured for theft, but the insurance company maintains that this is a commercial fraud and is not covered by theft clause in the insurance policy. Rockbuster has not yet had an opinion from its lawyers.
