Dear Paul

Thank you for your phone call this morning, as discussed I am emailing below the accounting issues we briefly discussed.

To assist us in our decision making process could you please make sure you reference any relevant sources relating to your advice, for example AASBs, Corporations Act, and relevant websites.


1. Pacific Limited is seeking a large sum of money to invest in a couple of large projects and was considering issuing a prospectus offering shares to the public. Brad Condor, the finance director suggested we issue debentures instead. He says it is cheaper than issuing shares and that all costs of issuing debentures, unlike shares, would be expensed. Is this correct? Also, how is it cheaper than increasing share capital?


2. We have entered into a long term contract to construct and supply plant and machinery to our mining customers. This means that we often receive a confirmed order from a customer in one financial year but due to the time taken to construct the item, deliver it to the customer about 18 months later. At present we recognise the sale as revenue on delivery of the item although the cost of constructing the item for sale is expensed as and when it is incurred. Is this correct treatment for revenue? Are there any other matters we need to consider regarding revenue?

Please respond by letter (not email) as I would like to present this to the board. I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.

Regards
S Evans
