The pledge can be recognized as a receivable when it meets the following criteria: a) the amount to be received can be reasonably estimated; and b) ultimate collection is reasonably assured In this case, it is not certain how much the centre will collect from private individuals. Accordingly, it is not certain how much will be received from the provincial government. To be conservative, a receivable should only be recognized at this time for an amount equal to the funds already collected by the centre. The journal entry to record the pledge would be:

In general, performance was satisfactory on accounting for investments, the mechanics of consolidation, and the translation of foreign operations. Performance was unsatisfactory on the multiple-choice questions and accounting for not-for-profit organizations. Many candidates did not properly integrate the statement of revenues and expenses with the statement of changes in net assets for the not-for-profit organization.
It is important that candidates understand the interrelationships of financial statements. It appeared that some candidates lacked an understanding of the concepts and principles supporting accounting practices, such as accounting for contributions for a not-for-profit organization and eliminating unrealized profits in intercompany transactions for consolidated financial statements. Candidates should ensure that they understand accounting procedures in terms of basic principles and concepts. In several cases, it appeared that the candidate had not read the question carefully and, as a result, did not correctly answer the question.
For example, in the foreign currency question (Question 4), many candidates calculated the cumulative exchange adjustment for 2005 rather than 2004. Specific Comments Question 1 Multiple choice (Levels 1 and 2) This question consisted of 15 multiple-choice questions on various topics and learning objectives. The overall results were unsatisfactory. Candidates had the most difficulty with parts (a) (cost method when a subsidiary has preferred shares), (b) (equity method when a subsidiary has preferred shares), (g) (GAAP for the public sector), (l) (financial statement concepts), and (m) (financial instruments).
These errors indicate a lack of understanding of the economic substance of selected transactions and the basic principles supporting accounting practices. Candidates need to first understand the underlying substance of business transactions and then try to understand the accounting for these transactions. Question 2 Accounting for investments (Levels 1 and 2) The overall results on this question were satisfactory.
Those with a good understanding of the new accounting requirements did quite well on this question; however, those without a good understanding of the new requirements had difficulty. Most candidates correctly determined the journal entry to record the purchase of the investment in SIL shares. However, many candidates did not properly account for the receipt of dividends because they credited “Investment in SIL” rather than “Dividend income”. For part (a), many candidates did not correctly account for “Other comprehensive income” at the end of 2005 or at the date of sale of the investment.
Similarly, for part (b), many candidates did not correctly account for the unrealized gain from appreciation at the end of 2005 and the related impact of this unrealized gain from appreciation on the final gain from appreciation at the date of sale of the investment. Accounting for available-for-sale and held-for-trading securities is relatively new in Canada (and in FA4) and should be studied carefully. Continued… ©CGA-Canada, 2005 Question 3 Consolidations (Level 1) The results on this question were satisfactory. The common errors were as follows: • • • • •
Incorrectly calculating the effect of the gain on the sale of the machine on consolidated amortization expense, consolidated income tax expense, and on the investment account under the equity method Incorrectly adjusting for realized profits from beginning inventory when calculating the investment account under the equity method Adding rather than subtracting (and vice versa) the adjustments for unrealized profits when calculating cost of goods sold Not adjusting for the after-tax realized gain (through usage) of the machine when calculating noncontrolling interest on the consolidated income statement.
Also, adjusting for unrealized profit in beginning and ending inventory when calculating noncontrolling interest on the consolidated income statement. Because these sales were “downstream,” they would have had no effect on noncontrolling interest. Not understanding the impact on noncontrolling interest and not differentiating between 2002 and 2005 when explaining the impact of changing from LIFO to FIFO for the amortization of the purchase discrepancy related to inventory These errors indicate a lack of understanding of the interrelationships of financial statement items such as inventory, income taxes, and
