Question

On January 1, 2014, Wilson Corporation acquired mortgage-backed securities (MBS) from National Financial for $10,000 and classified the investment in its available-for-sale (AFS) portfolio.
On December 31, 2014, the MBS’s fair value had declined to $7,000, and this decline was considered another-than-temporary impairment. The $3,000 impairment during 2014 was attributed to:
• Credit losses–$1,000
• Other factors–$2,000
On December 31, 2015, the MBS’s fair value recovered to $9,000. The $2,000 increase during 2015 was attributed to:
• Credit losses–$750
• Other factors–$1,250

Required:
1. Assume that Wilson follows U.S. GAAP. Prepare the journal entries to record:
• The January 1, 2014, purchase
• The December 31, 2014, impairment
• The December 31, 2015, impairment recovery
Summarize the amounts that Wilson reports in income and other comprehensive income (OCI) during 2014 and 2015.
2. Repeat requirement 1 assuming Wilson follows IFRS.
3. Now assume that the MBS’s value recovered to $11,000 on December 31, 2015. Explain how the $4,000 increase during 2015 will be allocated to income and OCI under (a) U.S. GAAP and (b) IFRS.
