- During the year, the company developed a new brand strategy “Shop to you drop”. The costs incurred were $17,000 on salaries and $5,000 in other costs such as artwork, consumer surveys etc. These costs have been capitalised as an intangible asset as the previous financial controller wanted to maintain the profitability of the company.
- On 30 June, 2020, MyJones undertook a review of its Intangible assets. Goodwill, with a carrying value at 30 June 2020 of $14,300, was determined to have suffered an impairment loss of $5,300.
- MyJones has been involved in a project to develop a smart sensor to be attached to merchandise that is invisible to the eye, with the aim of reducing the losses due to theft as well as sell this to other retailers. It started the project in August 2019. Between the starting date and 31 January 2020, the company spent $17,400 on the project. At 30 June 2020, there was no indication that the project would be commercially feasible, although the company had made significant progress and was sufficiently sure of future success that it was prepared to outlay more funds on the project.
- After spending a further $7,000 during February 2020, the company had built a prototype that appeared to be successful.
- The prototype was demonstrated to a number of engineering companies during April 2020, and several of these companies expressed interest in the further development of the device.
- Convinced that it now had a product that it would be able to sell, the company spent a further $4,000 during May 2020 adjusting for the problems that the engineering firms had pointed out.
- On 1 June 2020, the company applied for a patent on the device, incurring legal and administrative costs of $500. The patent had an expected useful life of 5 years and was renewable for a further 5 years upon application.
