Borrowing Cost : IAS 23 Borrowing Costs requires that borrowing costs directly attributable to the acquisition, construction or production of a 'qualifying asset' (one that necessarily takes a substantial period of time to get ready for its intended use or sale) are included in the cost of the asset. Other borrowing costs are recognised as an expense.

Where funds are borrowed specifically, costs eligible for capitalisation are the actual costs incurred less any income earned on the temporary investment of such borrowings. [IAS 23.12] Where funds are part of a general pool, the eligible amount is determined by applying a capitalisation rate to the expenditure on that asset. The capitalisation rate will be the weighted average of the borrowing costs applicable to the general pool. [IAS 23.14]

Capitalisation should commence when expenditures are being incurred, borrowing costs are being incurred and activities that are necessary to prepare the asset for its intended use or sale are in progress (may include some activities prior to commencement of physical production). [IAS 23.17-18] Capitalisation should be suspended during periods in which active development is interrupted. [IAS 23.20] Capitalisation should cease when substantially all of the activities necessary to prepare the asset for its intended use or sale are complete. [IAS 23.22] If only minor modifications are outstanding, this indicates that substantially all of the activities are complete. [IAS 23.23]

Where construction is completed in stages, which can be used while construction of the other parts continues, capitalisation of attributable borrowing costs should cease when substantially all of the activities necessary to prepare that part for its intended use or sale are complete. [IAS 23.24]


Disclosure [IAS 23.26]

                                                                                                                                 Amount (Rs)

Interest Charges  (10,00,000 * 8/100 )                                                                         80,000/-

(Interest charge @ 8% for 12 months from 01/07/2014 to 30/06/2015)

(Temporary Investment @ 5% for 6 months form 01/07/2014 to 31/01/2014)

                                                                                                                            ________________

                                                                                                                 Total               70,000/-

                                                                                                                         _________________

 

Therefore, the borrowing costs to be capitalized are Rs. 70,000/-

 

According to the IAS 23 Borrowing Cost


Borrowing costs that are directly attributable to the acquisition, construction or production of a qualifying asset should be capitalized as cost of the asset.

Once the relevant borrowings are identified, which relate to a specific asset, then the amount of borrowing costs available for capitalization will be the actual borrowing costs incurred on those borrowings during the period, lessany investment income on the temporary investment of those borrowings. It would not be unusual for some or all of the funds to be invested before they are actually used on the qualifying asset.
