(b)      Calculate the total revenue to be brought to account for each of the three years.

(c)      Prepare the journal entry to record revenue only for the year ending 30 June 2014.

(ii)      Assuming the outcome of the contract cannot be reliably estimated:

(a)     How much profit (loss) (if any) should be brought to account for each of the three years?  Explain.

(b)     Determine the total revenue to be brought to account for each accounting period.  Explain.
