Question

Jamoka Corporation is a public company that manufactures farm implements such as tractors, combines, and wagons. Jamoka uses the revaluation model per IAS 16, and records asset revaluations using the elimination method. (This means the balance in the accumulated depreciation account is eliminated against the asset account just prior to revaluation of the asset to fair value.) A piece of manufacturing equipment included in the property, plant, and equipment section on Jamoka's statement of financial position was purchased on December 31, 2013, for a cost of $100,000. The equipment was expected to have a remaining useful life of five years, with benefits being received evenly over the five years. Residual value of the equipment was estimated to be $10,000. Consider the following two situations:
Situation 1: At December 31, 2014, no formal revaluation is performed as management determines that the carrying amount of the property, plant, and equipment is not materially different from its fair value.
Situation 2: At December 31, 2014, a formal revaluation is performed and the independent appraisers assess the equipment's fair value to be $89,000. During the revaluation process, it is determined that the remaining useful life of the equipment is four years, with residual value of $11,000.
At December 31, 2015, no formal revaluation is performed as management determines that the carrying amount of the property, plant, and equipment is not materially different from its fair value. The equipment is sold on March 31, 2016, for $62,000.

(3) The disposal of the equipment on March 31, 2016.
(c) Assume that Jamoka uses the proportional method to record asset revaluations under the revaluation model. Prepare any journal entries required under situation 2 described above for:
