Required:
(a) Translate the balance sheet of Maple at December 31, Year 10, into Canadian dollars assuming that Maple’s functional currency is the Canadian dollar.
Assume that the translated balance sheet will be consolidated with Oak’s balance sheet. For retained earnings, simply use the amount required to balance your balance sheet.
(b) Calculate the foreign exchange gain or loss on the bonds payable for the year ended December 31, Year 10, and state how it would be reported on the year end financial statements.
(c) Prepare an independent calculation of the unrealized exchange gains or losses that would be reported in other comprehensive income for Year 10, assuming that Maple 9 s functional currency is the euro.
(d) Since the current rate method uses the closing rate to translate equipment, the translated amount should represent the fair value of the equipment in Canadian dollars. Do you agree or disagree? Briefly explain.
