1. (a) Night Ltd. sells beer to customers; some of the customers consume the beer in the bars run by Night Limited. While leaving the bars, the consumers leave the empty bottles in the bars and the company takes possession of these empty bottles. The company has laid down a detailed internal record procedure for accounting for these empty bottles which are sold by the company by calling for tenders. Keeping this in view :
(i) Decide whether the stock of empty bottles is an asset of the company;
(ii) If so, whether the stock of empty bottles existing as on the date of Balance Sheet is to be considered as inventories of the company and valued as per AS–2 or to be treated as scrap and shown at realizable value with corresponding credit to ‘Other Income’?
(b) AS–4 prescribes that adjustments to assets and liabilities are required for events 5 occurring after the Balance Sheet date that provide additional information materially affecting the determination of the amount relating to conditions existing at the Balance Sheet date–generally called adjusting events. “Proposed Dividend” is shown and adjusted in the Balance Sheet even if it is not an adjusting event as per AS–4 because it is proposed by the Board of Directors of the company after the Balance Sheet date.
Keeping this in view, is it not violation of AS–4 to show proposed dividends as current liabilities and provisions ? Comment.

2. Softex Ltd. announced a Stock Appreciation Right (SAR) on 01–04–07 for each of its employees. The scheme gives the employees the right to claim cash payment equivalent to an excess of market price of company shares on exercise date over the exercise price of Rs.125 per share in respect of 100 shares, subject to a condition of continuous employment of 3 years. The SAR is exercisable after 31–03–2010 but before 30–06–10.
The fair value of SAR was Rs. 21 in 2007–08, Rs.23 in 2008–09 and Rs. 24 in 2009–10. In 2007–08 the company estimated that 2% of its employees shall leave the company annually this was revised to 3% in 2008–09. Actually 15 employees left the company in 2007–08, 10 left in 2008–09 and 8 left in 2009–10. The SAR therefore actually vested in 492 employees on 30–06–2010 ; when SAR was exercised the intrinsic value was Rs.25 per share.
Show the provision for SAR account by fair value method. Is this provision a liability or equity ?
