Additional information:

1 The company's income taxation for the 2019 year is at 28%. Note: the company made no profit in the year to 31 March 2018 and consequently no tax was payable, nor was a dividend declared. This was due to the world economic downturn.

2 Valuation of inventories is set at the lower of cost and net realisable value. Cost for finished goods and materials is determined on a FIFO basis.

3 On 10 May 2019 there was a fire in the company's storeroom, which destroyed inventory costing $50,000. Insurance company assessors have stated that only $40,000 of the resulting claim can be met.

4 Employee expenses include a total of $85,000 in redundancy payments resulting from company-wide staff reductions during the financial year ended 31 March 2019. All company operations have been maintained during the year at the reduced staff level. A decision on a further round of staff cuts is to be made before the end of the 2020 financial year. These will have an expected cost of approximately another $85,000.

5 The company provides depreciation on a straight-line basis on cost or re-valued amounts. Residual values of all depreciated assets are nil.

6 The allowance for doubtful debts is provided at 1.25% of average accounts receivable. The bad debts arose from the bankruptcy of a major customer in February 2019.

7 Goodwill, originally costing $300,000, has been written down in value due to impairment, to $250,000 as at 1 April 2018. A further impairment adjustment of $50,000 is to be made on this written down value for the year ended 31 March 2019.

8 During the current accounting year the company undertook extensive market research activities costing $25,000 on a potential new toy, included in the balances above. This market research confirmed that there is perceived market interest potential in the new product and work has already begun on its development. 9 Educational Toys Limited is being sued for an infringement of the Employment Contracts Act. It is clear that the company has infringed the law and an out of court settlement was being negotiated at 31 March 2019. Agreement was reached between the parties on

9 May 2019 and has resulted in a payment of $50,000 by Educational Toys Limited to the aggrieved employee. Continued over the page

This revaluation excludes any effect of the current building alterations in progress and also has no effect on the depreciation charge for the year that has already been made. The breakdown of the previous valuation for land and buildings was: Land $2,000,000 Buildings $1,725,000 Total $3,725,000
