Havelbean Co OTQ case
Information relevant to questions 116-120
Havelbean Co is a broadband provider which receives government aid to provide broadband to remote areas. Havelbean Co invested in a new server at a cost of $2,400,000 on 1 October 2019. The server has an estimated useful life of ten years with a residual value of $360,000. Havelbean Co uses straight-line depreciation on a time apportioned basis.
The company received a government grant of 30% of its cost price of the server at the time of purchase. The terms of the grant are that if the company retains the asset for four years or more, then no repayment liability will be incurred. Havelbean Co has no intention of disposing of the server within the first four years. Havelbean Co's accounting policy for capital-based government grants is to treat them as deferred income and release them to income over the life of the asset to which they relate.
