Additional information:
Wail ltd purchased a brand from one of its competitors on 1 December
2020 for £71,250. Wail Ltd expect the brand to have a useful life of five
years and intends to sell it after five years. Wail ltd estimates that the
value of the brand will increase in value over the five years and so no
amortisation has been accounted for in the current year.
Wail Ltd’s policy is to charge depreciation/amortisation on a
proportionate basis.
On 1 March 2021 Wail ltd received a government grant of £40,000 to
help finance the acquisition of a machine with a five-year useful life.
The machine was purchased on the same date for £90,000 and was
correctly recognised in property, plant and equipment on 1 March 2021.
No further adjustments have been made in respect of the plant. The
grant received of £40,000 was been credited to revenue.
The accounts team have subsequently discussed the grant and have
decided that Wail ltd’s accounting policy for government grants will be
to use the deferred income approach. However, no furtheradjustments
have been made to the draft financial statements in respect to the
accounting of the grant.
In April 2021 a group of customers started a legal action against Wail
ltd, claiming £100,000 in damages, plus estimated costs of £15,000.
Wail ltd’s legal advisers assess the probability of the claim being
successful at around 30%. Wail ltd has recognised £34,500 in
operating expenses (being 30% of the total estimated cash outflow £115,000 x 30%).
On 1 June 2020, Wail Ltd had 200,000 £1 shares in issue. On 1 June
2020 Wail ltd issued 25,000 £1 ordinary shares for cash of £2.40 each.
The full amount received was debited to cash and credited to ordinary
share capital (included in the draft financial statements).
On 1
February 2021, a 1 for 4 bonus issue of ordinary shares was made. No
accounting entries have been made for the bonus issue. Wail Ltd
wishes to utilise the share premium account as far as permitted under
statute. Wail ltd also paid a dividend on 1 March 2021 of 10p per share.
The full amount was paid and debited to operating expenses and
credited to cash.

their stores including lighting and soft furnishings. In addition to this,
these stores have facilities that attract customers, such as coffee shops
(run by third parties).

website maintenance. Jotta ltd has taken out additional bank loans to
