Fay had a realized foreign exchange loss of $15,000 for the year ended December 31, 2011, and must also determine whether the following items will require year-end adjustment: Fay had an $8,000 equity adjustment resulting from the translation of the accounts of its wholly owned foreign subsidiary for the year ended December 31, 2011. Fay had an account payable to an unrelated foreign supplier payable in the supplier’s local currency. The U.S. dollar equivalent of the payable was $64,000 on the October 31, 2011, invoice date, and it was $60,000 on December 31, 2011. The invoice is payable on January 30, 2012. In Fay’s 2011 consolidated income statement, what amount should be included as foreign exchange loss? (a) $11,000 (b) $15,000 (c) $19,000 (d) $23,000 2. On January 1, 2011, the Ben Company formed a foreign subsidiary. On February 15, 2011, Ben’s subsidiary purchased 100,000 local currency units (LCU) of inventory; 25,000 LCU of the original inventory made up the entire inventory on December 31, 2011. The subsidiary’s functional currency is the U.S. dollar. The exchange rates were 2.2 LCU to $1 from January 1, 2011, to June 30, 2011, and 2 LCU to $1 from July 1, 2011, to December 31, 2011. The December 31, 2011, inventory balance for Ben’s foreign subsidiary should be remeasured into U.S. dollars in the amount of: (a) $10,500 (b) $11,364 (c) $11,905 (d) $12,500 3. The Dee Company owns a foreign subsidiary with 3,600,000 local currency units of property, plant, and equipment before accumulated depreciation at December 31, 2013. Of this amount, 2,400,000 LCU were acquired in 2011, when the rate of exchange was 1.6 LCU to $1, and 1,200,000 LCU were acquired in 2012, when the rate of exchange was 1.8 LCU to $1. The rate of exchange in effect at December 31, 2013, was 2 LCU to $1. The weighted average of exchange rates in effect during 2013 was 1.92 LCU to $1. The subsidiary’s functional currency is the U.S. dollar. Assuming that the property, plant, and equipment are depreciated using the straight-line method over a 10-year period with no salvage value, how much depreciation expense relating to the foreign subsidiary’s property, plant, and equipment should be charged in Dee’s income statement for 2013? (a) $180,000 (b) $187,500 (c) $200,000 (d) $216,667 4. The Clark Company owns a foreign subsidiary that had net income for the year ended December 31, 2011, of 4,800,000 local currency units, which was appropriately translated into $800,000. On October 15, 2011, when the rate of exchange was 5.7 LCU to $1, the foreign subsidiary paid a dividend to Clark of 2,400,000 LCU. The dividend represented the net income of the foreign subsidiary for the six months ended June 30, 2011, during which time the weighted average exchange rate was 5.8 LCU to $1. The rate of exchange in effect at December 31, 2011, was 5.9 LCU to $1. What rate of exchange should be used to translate the dividend for the December 31, 2011, financial statements? (a) 5.7 LCU to $1 (b) 5.8 LCU to $1 (c) 5.9 LCU to $1 (d) 6.0 LCU to $1 5. The Jem Company used the current rate method when translating foreign currency amounts at December 31, 2011.

The rate of exchange in effect when the specific transactions occurred involving those foreign currency amounts was 2 LCU to $1.
