Foxtrot Corporation wants to setup a factory producing tires. The factory would be constructed in two years post which it will start production. Foxtrot takes a loan to part-fund the factory construction cost for 100 cr at 10% interest with interest payable yearly in cash. At the end of the first year, the company pays Rs 10 cr as interest to the bank. At this stage, from an accounting perspective, Foxtrot has to make a choice. It can either show the interest paid as an expense in the Income Statement for year 1, or it can add the interest paid to the book value of the factory. In the latter case, the book value of Foxtrot will be increased to Rs 110 cr that will now include Rs 10 cr as interest that the company paid to the bankers? Which of the two do you think is more consistent with the principles of accounting? Answer : As per GAAP ,the book value should be increased to Rs 110 cr as the factory is still to be constructed and cost of interest paid for constructing the factory adds to the overall cost of the factory.
