Question 1 Financial Instruments and Foreign Currency Transactions
On 15 April 20X9, Outfits Ltd placed an order for inventory with Lan Ltd, a supplier in Vietnam. The goods are delivered on 15 May 20X9 with the payment due on 31 July 20X9. The inventory’s price is ?50 million Vietnamese Dong. Outfits Ltd is concerned that the exchange rate will fall resulting in a larger payment on the payment day (31 July 20X9). To hedge against the risk, the company entered into a forward rate agreement with ANZ Bank on 16 April 20X9. The terms of the agreement are that Outfits Ltd will receive ?10 million Vietnamese Dong on 31 July 20X9 at the forward rate of A$1 = ?18,000. Outfits Ltd elected to classify this transaction as a cash flow hedge and to adjust the cost of the inventory as a result of the hedging transaction.
On 1 August 20X9, the purchased inventory was sold for $10,000.
