1 Basis of preparation
The group annual financial statements of Champions Ltd have always been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).
2 Investment in Premier Ltd
2.1 Premier Ltd is incorporated in the United Kingdom (UK) with a functional currency of pound sterling (£). Premier Ltd provides marketing and other related services to various football clubs in England’s Premier League.
Champions Ltd acquired 100% of the ordinary shares of Premier Ltd on 1 January 2006 for £500 000 (paid in cash on that date). The assets of Premier Ltd (see note 2.2), as recognised by Premier Ltd, were considered to reflect their fair values on 1 January 2006.
2.2 Details of the assets of Premier Ltd are as follows:

2.5 All income statement items and cash flows of Premier Ltd arose evenly throughout the 2006 financial year.
Premier Ltd did not declare any dividends during the 2006 financial year.
2.6 On 1 October 2006, Champions Ltd borrowed £500 000 from a UK bank. Champions Ltd incurred interest of £10 000 on this loan during the 2006 financial year. This interest was still outstanding as at 31 December 2006 (see note 8.1).
Champions Ltd immediately designated the capital amount of the loan (i.e. £500 000) as a hedge of its investment in Premier Ltd. The hedge met all the criteria of IAS 39 (AC 133), Financial instruments: recognition and measurement, par. 88. The hedge is 100% effective.
2.7 Premier Ltd has been correctly consolidated in the group annual financial statements of Champions Ltd that has been presented to you.
3 Investments
3.1 Champions Ltd owns shares in various listed companies over which it is unable to exert control (joint or otherwise) or significant influence. The investments in these companies have therefore been classified as “available for sale” in terms of IAS 39.
3.2 The opening and closing balances of these investments for 2006 are reconciled below:

This treatment has always been applied and you agree that this is the most appropriate treatment.
