Q.2 International accounting standards (IAS) related to financial reporting

There are standards and regulations are defined in respect of determining the information and details which remain associated with analysing the performance and market position in effective manner. There is an assets are defined in this context subject to building the structure of  organisation are adopted with in the organisation. There are two type of main assets are found in organisational context. These assets are defined as follows;

Current assets: These are the assets which do not remain consistent for more than one year. Life of these assets remain centralised around 1 year. There are type of currents are found in organisational context such as cash, debtors, lose and tools, foreign currency, investment, except investments which can not be easily liquidated and analysed in organisational context. Account receivable, investments, liquid assets, prepaid expenses, inventories and short term investments, market securities, shares of other companies and venture capital and structure are the main examples which are considered as current assets (Harrison, 2013). This are commonly helps to analyse the aspects in respect of listed above which also define various categorises.

Non Current assets: These are the assets which are considered essential in terms of analysing the credibility and sustainability of organisation (Greenwood and Scharfstein, 2013). There is a structure of proper cash flow and unrestricted cash within the operations are considered in this context. Life cycle of this company basically remain for more than  one year. Non current assets basically helps to maintain an ethical manner.

These are mainly classified in major two board categorises such as

  1. Limited life intangible assets: these are the type of intangible assets which contains the type of assets such as copyrights, patents, goodwill, intellectual and contingent rights. Duration of these type of assets remain associated for the limited duration. Life of these type of assets also can increased or renewed for subsiding years and period. For example the rights of patents and rights can be extended by fulfilling the legal and formal procedure for following consideration.
  2. Unlimited life of intangible assets: these are the assets which are considered essential in terms of analysing the knowledge that how it can be treated and organised in well planed and organised way. Trademarks, contrast to tangible assets, intangible assets, build back and managing the skills and knowledge in more comprised way are some main aspects considered in this context (Gotze, Northcott and Schuster, 2016).

Goodwill is one of the important and essential aspect considered in organisational context. This is created by analysing and evaluating the base of structure.

Difference between Tangible assets and goodwill

Intangible assets

Goodwill

These are the assets which are considered essential in terms analysing the structure of organisation. Non-physical and identifiable assets and property are considered in this context.

Goodwill is considered as a miscellaneous category which helps to determine the value and measurement of brand value of organisation. This has also no any physical appearance and existence but contains huge role in organisational value.

Computer software, advanced technology, copyrights, licensing agreements, websites domain name are some main examples of intangible assets.

This is considered under miscellaneous category which not only helps to maintain the level of effective brand value but also measured tiredly with in the organisation.

These can be sold independently and successfully outside the market. Value of intangible assets are considered in this context.

These are evaluated on the basis of goodwill value in the market. This cannot exist independently of the business.

This is one of the essential aspect which remain associated with analysing the value of intangible assets and properties. This helps to estimate the value to organisation.

Goodwill can be sold and purchased or transferred separately and combine. Life of goodwill remain long term perspective. Customer's loyalty, brand equity, recognition and company worth are considered more than the book value of organisation and quantifiable assets are also counted as goodwill.

IAS 38

International Accounting standard Standard 38 contains the rules and standards related to adjustment and accounting of intangible assets (Gabaix, 2012). Purpose of this objective is to prescribe the accounting and goodwill in order to determine the tangibility and contingency of intangible assets. There are some specified criteria are considered in this context which elaborate the standards and polices related to  measuring and evaluation of value of intangible assets. There is a specified disclosures about intangible assets need to given and presented in systematic format.

Intangible assets 

These are the assets which don not contains the specific meaning and relevance and physical nature in organisational context, but they retain high organisational values which helps enhance the capability and enhance the value of organisation (Brooks, 2014). There are some essential aspects are considered in this context such are Reputation, goodwill, patents, intellectual property and assets, skilled and knowledge, professional skills and aspects. This not only enhance the value of organisation but also improve the capacity of managing asstes and liabilities.

These assets do not contains physical relevance and existence in real life. These drive as per the added value and increased infrastructure for better understanding and leading the organisation. Value of intellectual property and the legal existence not only present the right reflection of organisation but also build a strong base to run business operations effectively and smoothly. Patents, legal rights, value of subsidiary assets and property are the main aspects which are considered in this context (Brealey, Myers and Mohanty, 2012).

Some operations creates connections with the development and enhancement of value of intangible assets. It is necessary to consider the assets to situation for accepting and capable of operating in the manner intended by management.

These incidental operations basically helps to determine the essential aspects which remain associated with expenses, operations and classification of income and expenses. Payment is made in terms of short term credit which remain associated with cost of operations and management in economic aspects. Inflows are considered essential in terms of managing. Recognising credibility and sustainability.  

Q.3 IAS 2 inventory valuation and critical analysis of statement

Inventories and stocks are considered as commodities in which organisation deals and run their business. Inventory valuation is one of the prime requirement for an organisation. Sales are held for sales are considered ordinary course of business. This is considered as process of production for sales (Anandarajan,Anandarajan and Srinivasan, 2012). Supplies and commodities are used by users and customers in terms of getting benefits.

There are some essential elements such as cost of purchase, cost of conversion, cost incurred in beaning and the inventories are aligned in different stores position. There are types of inventory valuation methods are used in organisation which helps to determine the cost of inventories and valuation of closing stock. Value of stock is evaluated on the basis of net realisable value and cost of inventory in market at present time.

The first-in, first-out or weighted average cost formula for items that are ordinarily interchangeable (generally large quantities of individually insignificant items). Specific identification of cost for items of inventory that are not ordinarily interchangeable.

There are types of formulas used in organisational context to evaluate the cost of inventories such as

FIFO: This is the method which is used to analyse the cost of value and stock with help of assumption and the inventory items. Purchase of produced goods and sold and used as first in terms of analysing the accounting period (Abdel-Kader, 2011). Valuation of stock remain related to first in first out. This method is basically considered essential in terms of analysing cost and determination of purchasing inventory. This method helps to align the requirement of inventories in well organised manner.

This method basically helps to determine the average cost of inventory which remain in inventories. The cost of the items remaining at the end of an accounting period is then calculated by using the most recently-computed weighted average cost per item. This generally remain involved  in computing a new weighted average cost of capital and acquiring assets. It take place to acquire assets in respect of determining the cost by consolidating value of stock in synchronised way. This method also plays vital role in respect of decision making process.

Last in first out (LIFO): this is the method which helps to analyse the cost of inventory on the basis of evaluation profitability and cost of inventory by considering inventories in end. This method is rarely used by managers and accountants because value of stock is based upon the last price which is introduced with effective used.

Disclosure requirement

Accounting policy basically helps to determine inventories cost and evaluation of cost by analysing the profitability. It is required by the mangers and accountants to disclose the policies, procedures and standards which are adopted by organisation.
