Sheridan Corp. enters into a contract with a customer to build an apartment building for \$990,500. The customer hopes to rent apartments at the beginning of the school year and provides a performance bonus of \$147,300 to be paid if the building is ready for rental beginning August 1, 2018. The bonus is reduced by \$49,100 each week that completion is delayed. Sheridan commonly includes these completion bonuses in its contracts and, based on prior experience, estimates the following completion outcomes:

 Completed by Probability August 1, 2018 70 % August 8, 2018 20 August 15, 2018 5 After August 15, 2018 5

(a) Determine the transaction price for the contract, assuming Sheridan is only able to estimate whether the building can be completed by August 1, 2018, or not (Sheridan estimates that there is a 70% chance that the building will be completed by August 1, 2018). (If answer is 0, please enter 0. Do not leave any fields blank.)

 Transaction Price \$

(b) Determine the transaction price for the contract, assuming Sheridan has limited information with which to develop a reliable estimate of completion by the August 1, 2018, deadline. (If answer is 0, please enter 0. Do not leave any fields blank.)

 Transaction Price \$

Answer: Determination of Transaction Price for the Contract

A)

 Completed By Probability Calculation Bonus August 1, 2018 70% 147,300 x 70% \$ 103,110 August 8, 2018 20% 98,200 x 20% \$ 19,640 August 15, 2018 5% 49,100 x 5% \$ 2,455 After August 15, 2018 5% 0 x 5% \$ - Total Bonus \$ 125,205

So Transaction Price will be = \$990,500 + \$ 125,205 = \$ 1,115,705

B)

No revenue shall be recognised as per IAS 18, unless there is a reliable estimate of completion by the August 1,2018, deadline.
