Additional information:

  • DP plc is the subject of US criminal investigations, worldwide press interest and targeting by environmental groups following a major oil spill off the Gulf of Mexico in August 2022.

The company has made a provision of £1,480m for reparation costs. This is an estimated cost net of taxation. It includes £212m of expenditure through to 31 December 2022 plus conservative estimates of future clean-up costs, fines, and compensation payments to relevant parties. The Finance Director would acknowledge the likelihood that all relevant costs have not yet been identified. A major uncertainty is the level of fines potentially applied to the company from US authorities, who are still investigating the spill. Fines for similar past incidents have run in excess of £1bn.    财务会计和报告代考

  • Starting in Q2 2022, DP plc has rapidly vertically integrated its operations, acquiring and rebranding a large number of petrol stations across Europe.
  • The price of oil has increased by approximately 40% during 2022. DP plc’s oil reserves are at their highest recorded levels at 31 December 2022.
  • Investors in the company are understandably concerned about immediate claims against the company and its prospects, notwithstanding the company’s substantial reserves, the generally healthy risk/reward trade-off of the industry and the company’s dividend policy (DP plc maintained its dividend payment for the two years to 31 December 2022).

Required:

Provide a detailed report analysing the financial performance and position of DP plc. You should support your analysis with appropriate accounting ratios and observation of trends. (100 marks)

Question 4    财务会计和报告代考

McQueen plc has a financial year end of 31 December. During the second half of the year to 31 December 2022, the company put all its staff through intensive training courses, the costs of which totalled £4.5 million. The training was designed to improve staff efficiency and workflow on the company’s manufacturing lines. The directors of the company firmly believe that this is money well spent because anticipated improvements will ultimately lead to lower production costs and higher profitability. The company is estimated to benefit from the training for the next five years. The directors have therefore requested that the training costs be capitalised initially and amortised over a five-year period going forward. The accountant has expressed reluctance leading the directors to upgrade their request to a demand.

Also, during the year to 31 December 2022, the company’s research and development arm commenced work on two new manufacturing processes, 1 and 2, involving bespoke technology and software for each. The initial research costs for both amounted to £131,400. Process 1 was finalised in-year, following successful build and testing of the technology and software, both of

which appear to operate in tandem as required. The company plans to put this into operation from 1 June 2023. Development costs for Process 1 amounted to £521,550 for the year to 31 December 2022. Process 1 is anticipated to have a useful economic life of 6 years. Process 2 has stalled due to difficulties with the technology/software interface. Development costs for Process 2 amounted to £305,550 for the year to 31 December 2022.

Required:    财务会计和报告代考

(a) Detail how the above items should be accounted for in accordance with international financial reporting standards, explaining any issues. (30 marks)

King plc has a financial year end of 31 December. In preparing financial statements for the year to 31 December 2022, it has come to light that the published revenue figure for the year to 31 December 2021 was understated by £200,000, with trade receivables understated similarly. It has been established that this was due to an accounting error and that the error is material. Prior to correcting this error, King plc’s draft statement of profit or loss for the year to 31 December 2022 showed the following:
