Question

On March 31, 2016, Bellburn Land Development Ltd. (Bellburn) sold a piece of land to the city for $5,000,000. The com pany determined that it wouldn't be developing the land so it decided to take advantage of the offer from the city. Management was satisfied that the amount offered represented fair value for the land. The terms of the sale require full payment on April 3, 2018. No interest is specified in the agreement. Despite the fact that Bellburn won't be receiving its cash for two years, it decided to recognize the revenue from the sale during the year ended March 31, 2016 because the revenue recognition criteria were met at the time. The market rate of interest for an arrangement of this type is 10 percent.
