Question

On March I 2014, Russell Winery Ltd. purchased a five-hectare commercial vineyard for $1,050,000. The total purchase price was based on appraised market values of the building, grapevines, and equipment ($580,000, 5260,000, and 5210,000, respectively). Russell Winery incurred the following cash expenditures between March I and June 30, the date of Russell Winery's first harvest of the grapevines:
Major repairs to sprayer equipment ................. $28,000
Grapevine fertilizer ........................ 7,000
Phase 1 construction of a new grape trellis system for the grapevines ...... 31,000
Construction of a new custom wine cellar ................ 62,000
Harvesting labour ........................ 36,000
The fair value of the grapevines was estimated to have increased to $295,000 by December 31, 2014, the company's fiscal year end, and any sale of vineyard assets would attract a 4% realtor commission. Russell Winery prepares financial statements in accordance with IFRS.
