Re: Accounting Issues: Year Ending 30 June 2021
From: Jason Alba (
Sent: 20 August 2020
To: Araneda Jackson (
Dear Araneda,
Thank you for your phone call this morning, as agreed I am emailing you regarding the accounting issues we
briefly discussed. By the way to assist the Management team 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?
Here is the background to our problem – Qantas Airways Limited is the flag carrier of Australia and its largest
airline by fleet size. Qantas Airways Ltd leases Aircraft from Boeing and Airbus for 20 years at a time. The
lease agreement can be cancelled, but a significant penalty will be incurred by Qantas Ltd. The lease
payments required 20 payments of equal value at the end of every year up to the twentieth year.
On 20 August 2020, Qantas announced a $2 billion loss, with the coronavirus pandemic slashing its revenue
by 21% for the year ended 30 June 2020. This result included a massive $1.4 billion write-down in the value
of assets such as its Airbus 380 aircraft fleet.
In the media release announcing the loss, Qantas CEO Alan Joyce was quoted: “COVID will continue to
have a huge impact on our business and were expecting a significant underlying loss in FY [financial year]
21. Yet he remained optimistic about the longer-term prospects for the airline as the pandemic subsides’’,
(Qantas Group 2020).
The General Manager of Qantas Airways Ltd is aware of the required disclosures under AASB136 ($1.4
billion write-downs in the value of assets) and therefore asked you to advise him with a summary of the other
relevant accounting standards to be applied under the financial reporting framework.
Identify the relevant Australian accounting standards and explain the impact of COVID on Qantas Airways
financial reporting for Financial Year 21?
Please respond by letter (not email) as I would like to present this to the Board. I look forward to hearing
from you shortly.
Jason Alba
General Manager, Qantas Airways Ltd
Level 111, 222 King Street,
Sydney NSW 2000
Assessment Instructions
Any sources that you use need to be acknowledged in order to avoid plagiarism
Sources of information must be cited both in the body of the text (in-text referencing) and the end of the
assignment (reference list). Failure to do so will result in penalties. Remember that when referencing an
Annual Report, it is a corporate document that does not have a particular author but it will still require
referencing any time you use information from it. Any other documents or books or other references you use
will also require referencing
