(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.

(iii)     Assume that actual costs incurred for the year ending 30 June 2014 amounted to a total of $50 000 000 and that estimated costs for the year ending 30 June 2015 remained at a total of $35 000 000.  Determine how much profit (loss) is to be brought to account for the year ending 30 June 2014.  Explain your rationale.
