Assignment Question

Part A – Revaluations and impairment testing of non-current assets  15 Marks

1 Word limit: 250 words 

One of the board of directors of Simba Ltd has proposed that the company adopt the revaluation model for fixed assets. Some of these assets are hard to obtain and certain items have increased in value in the current period, however it is difficult to know what their fair value is. The director is arguing that fair value will improve the ‘look’ of the company’s Statement of Financial Position, and may eliminate the need for depreciation. 

Required

Discuss whether the board should adopt the director’s proposal.  (5 marks)

Question 2 Word limit: 250 words

‘Impairment is only relevant to assets carried under the cost model. For assets carried under the revaluation model, such as our land and buildings, increases and decreases in fair value dictate whether carrying amounts are adjusted up or down. We don’t bother testing land and buildings for impairment’.

Required

Critically evaluate the above statement. (5 marks)
