ANNEXURE A

STUDY MATERIAL: STUDY UNIT 6 - LEASES

Annexure A is to be included under study unit 6 of your study guide. Please ignore its reference to study
unit 4, as it needs to replace study unit 6 in your study guide.

IAS 17 is currently being reviewed by the IASB (International Accounting Standards Board). At the time of
compiling the study guide, the final revised IAS 17 has not yet been released and it was anticipated that it
would have been released by the end of 2011.

Subsequently, the Exposure Draft (ED 288) has been withdrawn and the revised IAS 17 is therefore not yet
available.

Please note the following as it relates to the attached study unit:

When calculating the equalisation of lease payments for operating lease payments, a lease prepayment or
provision for lease payments is normally recognised. This item must not be shown as a financial asset or a
financial liability at amortised cost in the statement of financial position, but rather as a separate line item in
the statement of financial position as 'lease prepayments’ or an ‘accrued lease expenses’.

The initial direct costs such as legal fees, commission paid etc. are amortised over the lease term in an
operating lease. These items must not be shown as financial assets at amortised cost in the statement of
financial position sheet but rather as a separate line item 'deferred expenses' or 'prepaid expenses' in the
statement of financial position.

The portion of the profit that is deferred in the sale and lease back finance or operating lease must not be
shown as a financial liability at amortised cost in the statement of financial position but as a separate line
item in the statement of financial position as 'deferred profit’ or ‘deferred income’.

More specifically:

Solution 12

“Other financial liabilities” in the Statement of Financial Position should read “Deferred income” and the
number of the note should read 7.

The number of the note referring to “Deferred tax” should read 8.

Solutions 17 to 20

Change all the notes with the heading “Financial Liabilities” as follows:

1. The heading should be “Deferred income”.
2. Delete the paragraphs referring to “categories of financial liabilities”
3. Start the notes as follows:
“Included in deferred income is deferred profit resulting from the following sale and leaseback
agreement:”

iii

Note 6 ends after the sentence “The effective interest rate is 16. iv . Deferred income Then replace the words “financial liabilities measured at amortised cost” in the paragraph second from the last with “deferred income”. The remaining note stays the same.” Insert the following after the abovementioned sentence: 7. Start the notes as follows: “Included in deferred expenses is the following deferred legal expenses or deferred commission paid or deferred loss (as the case may be) in terms of the following sale and leaseback agreement:” Solution 21 The financial liabilities measured at amortised cost under “Non-current financial liabilities” should be R126 701 and under “Current financial liabilities” should be R74 633.08% per annum.Solutions 17 to 20 Change all notes with the heading “Financial assets” to “Deferred expenses” and change the note as follows: 1. Delete the paragraphs referring to “categories of financial assets” 2.
