Question E18-6

Intermediate Accounting (Kieso)
Found in: Page 1035

Short Answer

(Determine Transaction Price) Bill Amends, owner of Real Estate Inc., buys and sells commercial properties. Recently, he sold land for $3,000,000 to the Blackhawk Group, a developer that plans to build a new shopping mall. In addition to the $3,000,000 sales price, Blackhawk Group agrees to pay Real Estate Inc. 1% of the retail sales of the mall for 10 years. Blackhawk estimates that retail sales in a typical mall project is $1,000,000 a year. Given the substantial increase in online sales that are occurring in the retail market, Bill had originally indicated that he would prefer a higher price for the land instead of the 1% royalty arrangement and suggested a price of $3,250,000. However, Blackhawk would not agree to those terms.

Step by Step Solution

Meaning of Royalty

Royalty is a fee paid by the franchisor to the franchisor for the use of its assets such as patents, copyrights, and resources. It helps a franchisee to get the right to use the assets without actually buying them.

Transaction price and royalty payment that Real Estate record

A transaction price is a predetermined and established price at which a transaction is completed. Because this is the set selling price, the only assured price is $300,000. It is not necessary to record a 1% royalty every year for ten years because the money will not be guaranteed.

Transaction price is $3,000,000.
