1 Examiner s general comments The following provides guidance to candidates preparing for future examinations and has been prepared with that in mind. The guidance mentions the main errors that were commonly made by candidates, but by no means did all candidates make such errors, and there were many excellent scripts presented. There was evidence of a number of well-prepared candidates with a wide range of knowledge, able to tackle most of the sub-questions in questions 1 and 2 and prepare a good answer to questions 3 and 4. However some candidates had not prepared for some of the topics on the paper. Questions that had a significant number of particularly poor answers were, question 1 (1.1 direct tax and 1.10 underlying tax); question 2b the purpose of the Conceptual framework. Question spotting is not advised in this paper as most learning outcomes are covered in each examination. Question 1 seemed to have better marks this time with most candidates scoring over half marks. Some candidates seemed unprepared for some questions in this section. Questions 1.1 and 1.10 seemed to cause the most problems. A number of candidates wrote long answers to the narrative questions in this section, causing time constraints for later questions. Question 2 was generally answered quite well, many candidates were able to score half marks on the question overall. Some candidates were obviously ill prepared for Q2b the purpose of the Conceptual framework. Question 3 produced some very good answers but there were very few candidates scoring full marks. A considerable number of candidates were unable to correctly calculate or treat some of the adjustments required. E.g. depreciation of non-current assets and the treatment of a finance lease. Question 4 Most candidates seemed to understand what a statement of cash flows should look like but there were still some including statement of profit or loss items and statement of financial position items in the statement of cash flows. It is essential that adequate, clear workings are shown for every question or marks could be lost. The Chartered Institute of Management Accountants 2014 Page 1

2 SECTION A 20 MARKS ANSWER ALL TEN SUB-QUESTIONS Question One consists of 10 objective test sub-questions. These are drawn from all sections of the syllabus. They are designed to examine breadth across the syllabus and thus cover many learning outcomes. Question Define the meaning of the term a direct tax. Answer: A direct tax is one that is imposed directly on the person/entity required to pay the tax.

An external audit of MX s financial statements discovered that the loss had not been recognised in MX s financial statements. This is regarded as material but not pervasive. What type of audit report should the auditor issue for MX s financial statements for the year ended 31 March 2014? A B C D A modified report, with a qualified opinion based on insufficient appropriate evidence. A modified report, with a qualified opinion, with a qualified except for opinion.

6 Question 1.9 PX is registered for VAT in Country X. PX is partially exempt for VAT purposes. During the latest VAT period, PX purchased materials and services costing $661,250, including VAT at standard rate. These materials and services were used to produce both standard rated and exempt goods. Goods sold to customers, excluding VAT were: Standard rated goods $820,000 Exempt goods $205,000 Assume PX had no other VAT related transactions. Input tax that PX can claim on its purchases in its VAT return for the period is: A $69,000 B $86,250 C $79,350 D $99,188 Answer A Proportion that is not exempt: 820/1,025 = 80% Input VAT = $661,250 x 15/115 = 86,250 Answer 86,250 x 80% = $69,000 Question 1.10 Describe the meaning of underlying tax. Answer: When an entity pays a dividend out of post-tax profits to another entity the dividend received has already suffered tax. If the dividend is paid by an entity in a foreign country the tax suffered is referred to as underlying tax. The Chartered Institute of Management Accountants 2014 Page 6

Incorrectly applying the 10% rule. Not referring to the 75% rule. Quoting and applying incorrect percentages instead of 10% and 75%. Only using 10% of revenue to identify reportable segments.

Some candidates were unable to identify when the various data items should be used. This part of the question was generally answered quite well with most candidates scoring more than half marks. Common Errors Using more than one year for calculation. Taking the first year as year ended 31 March 2013 instead of Ignoring the additional vehicle s depreciation and/or tax depreciation.

The Chartered Institute of Management Accountants 2014 Page 13

14 Common Errors Not applying reducing balance depreciation to plant and equipment correctly. Not adjusting for disposal of assets before calculating depreciation for the year. Allocating depreciation to the wrong cost headings. Charging depreciation and loss on disposal of plant and equipment directly to profit or loss. Charging the cumulative depreciation to cost of sales and/or distribution instead of the annual figure. The treasury shares were treated in many different incorrect ways: adding to equity shares; deducting from equity shares and adding to non-current assets were the most common treatments. Some candidates treated the deferred development expenditure as a liability in the statement of financial position. Closing inventory balance was deducted from cost of sales. The finance lease was calculated as paid in arrears instead of paid in advance each year. Some candidates mixed up depreciation and interest paid in the same set of workings for the lease. The Chartered Institute of Management Accountants 2014 Page 14

15 Question 4 Required: Prepare EBS s Statement of cash flows, using the indirect method, for the year ended 30 June 2014 in accordance with IAS 7 Statement of Cash Flows. Notes to the financial statements are not required, but all workings must be clearly shown. (Total for Question Four = 25 marks) To test candidates understanding of a Statement of cash flows. Tests learning outcome C1a. Suggested Approach Draft the outline headings for a statement of cash flows. Complete the cash generated from operations section. Calculate the tax and interest paid and put in statement of cash flows. Calculate the cash flows from movements in non-tangible assets and complete cash flows from investing activities. Calculate dividends paid and complete cash flows from financing activities. Complete the statement of cash flows. Marking Guide Marks Cash generated from operations section of the statement. 9.0 Calculate the tax and interest paid and put in statement of cash flows. 4.0 Calculate the cash flows from movements in non-current assets and complete cash flows from investing activities. 6.0 Calculate dividends paid and complete cash flows from financing activities. 4.0 Formats and presentation and cash balances. 2.0 Maximum marks for Question Examiner s Comments There were some very good answers to this question with some candidates scoring full marks. However there were many more very poor answers with some candidates clearly not able to distinguish cash flows from accounting adjustments. The main error was in the calculation of depreciation and purchases of non-current assets. Many candidates failed to realise that you can t use net book values to calculate two missing figures. The Chartered Institute of Management Accountants 2014 Page 15

16 Common Errors Many candidates had very poor formats, with several items in the wrong section of the statement of cash flows. Some answers started with the wrong profit figure. Many candidates did not include several of the non-cash adjustments, e.g. amortisation of development expenditure. A number of candidates still get the direction of the changes in working capital the wrong way round. Very few candidates were able to calculate the expenditure incurred in the year on the purchase of noncurrent assets. A large proportion of candidates lost marks for deducting depreciation, amortisation and loss on sale of an asset instead of adding them to the statement of cash flows. Including revenue and expenses items from the statement of profit or loss or assets and liabilities from the statement of financial position in the statement of cash flows.
