8. (a) Jagannath Ltd. had made a right issue of shares in 2008. In the offer document to its members, it had projected a surplus of Rs.40 crores during the accounting year to end of 31st March, 2010. The Draft results for the year, prepared on the hitherto followed accounting policies and presented for perusal of the board of directors showed a deficit of Rs.10 crores. The board in consultation with the managing director decided on the following:
(i) Value year – end inventory at works cost (Rs.50 crores) instead of the hitherto method of valuation of inventory at prime cost (30 crores);
(ii) Provide depreciation for the year on straight line basis on account of substantial additions in gross block during the year, instead of on the reducing balance method, which was hitherto adopted. As a consequence, the charge for depreciation at Rs.27 crores is lower than the amount of Rs.45 crores which would have been provided had the old method been followed, by Rs.18 crores;
(iii) Not to provide for after sales expenses during the warranty period. Till the last year, provision at 2% of sales used to be made under the concept of matching of costs against revenue and actual expenses used to be charged against the provision. The board now decided to account for expenses as and when actually incurred. Sales during the year total to Rs.600 crores;
(iv) Provide for permanent fall in the value of investments which fall had taken place over the past five years – the provision being Rs.10 crores.
As Chief Accountant of the Company, you are asked by the Managing Director to draft the notes on accounts for inclusion in the annual report for 2009–2010.
