Scenario 4 Intangible Assets
ChiHerbal Ltd planed to develop a product that protects its lavender farms from weeds, pests and fungal diseases. The product could also be manufactured and sold by the company should there be market demand. In 2012, the company conducted preliminary search and anticipated a potential product that may require synthesising a combination of specific chemicals.
During 2015, ChiHerbal developed a formula to synthesise three chemicals in a concentrated form, which would make the new product both suitable for use on its lavender farms and commercially viable for an external market. The sales department also confirmed the existence of a market for the new product. ChiHerbal planned to start production in 2016. The costs incurred in 2015 totalled $3 million.
Explain how ChiHerbal should account for the costs in 2013, 2014, and 2015. Journal entries are required.
