Solution –

1) As per Ind AS 7, the aggregate cash flows arising from obtaining control of subsidiary shall be presented separately and classified as investing activities.

2) As per Ind AS 7, the aggregate amount of the cash paid or received as consideration for obtaining subsidiaries is reported in the statement of cash flows net of cash and cash equivalents acquired or disposed of as part of such transactions, events or changes in circumstances.

Further, investing and financing transactions that do not require the use of cash or cash equivalents shall be excluded from a statement of cash flows. Such transactions shall be disclosed elsewhere in the financial statements in a way that provides all the relevant information about these investing and financing activities.

3) As per Ind AS 7, cash flows arising from changes in ownership interests in a subsidiary that do not result in a loss of control shall be classified as cash flows from financing activities, unless the subsidiary is held by an investment entity, as defined in Ind AS 110, and is required to be measured at fair value through profit or loss.

4) Considering the above, for the financial year ended March 31, 20X2 total consideration of Rs.15,00,000 less Rs.2,50,000 will be shown under investing activities as “Acquisition of the subsidiary (net of cash acquired)”.

5) There will not be any impact of issuance of equity shares as consideration in the cash flow statement however a proper disclosure shall be given elsewhere in the financial statements in a way that provides all the relevant information about the issuance of equity shares for non-cash consideration.

Question 2 –

Z Ltd. has no foreign currency cash flow for the year 2017. It holds some deposit in a bank in the USA. The balances as on 31.12.2017 and 31.12.2018 were US$ 100,000 and US$ 102,000 respectively. The exchange rate on December 31, 2017 was US$1 = Rs.45. The same on 31.12.2018 was US$1 = Rs.50. The increase in the balance was on account of interest credited on 31.12.2018. Thus, the deposit was reported at Rs.45,00,000 in the balance sheet as on December 31, 2017. It was reported at Rs.51,00,000 in the balance sheet as on 31.12.2018. How these transactions should be presented in cash flow for the year ended 31.12.2018 as per Ind AS 7?

Solution –

The profit and loss account was credited by Rs.1,00,000 (US$ 2000 × Rs.50) towards interest income. It was credited by the exchange difference of US$ 100,000 × (Rs.50 – Rs.45) that is, Rs.500,000. In preparing the cash flow statement, Rs.500,000, the exchange difference, should be deducted from the ‘net profit before taxes, and extraordinary item’. However, in order to reconcile the opening balance of the cash and cash equivalents with its closing balance, the exchange difference Rs.500,000, should be added to the opening balance in note to cash flow statement.

Cash flows arising from transactions in a foreign currency shall be recorded in Z Ltd.’s functional currency by applying to the foreign currency amount the exchange rate between the functional currency and the foreign currency at the date of the cash flow.
