Question

On January 1, 2014, Rae Corporation purchased 30% of the common shares of Martz Limited for $196,000. Martz Limited shares are not traded in an active market. The carrying amount of Martz's net assets was $520,000 on that date. Any excess of the purchase cost over Rae's share of Martz's carrying amount is attributable to unrecorded intangibles with a 20-year life. During the year, Martz earned net income and comprehensive income of $75,000 and paid dividends of $15,000. The investment in Martz had a fair value of $201,000 at December 31, 2014. During 2015, Martz incurred a net loss and comprehensive loss of $80,000 and paid no dividends. At December 31, 2015, the fair value of the investment was $140,000 and the recoverable amount was $149,000. Assume that Rae follows IFRS.
Instructions
