Q2.
For each of the following Independent situations you are to establish whether control does or does not exist. If control does exist you are to state which party controls the entity. In your answer you are to give reasons for your answers and make reference to, and show the relevance of, the appropriate paragraphs in AASB10. 
 
(a)Alfred Ltd is owned 50 per cent by Victoria Ltd and 50 per cent by Kaiser Ltd (the founding shareholders). Each has two seats on the board, with no party having a casting vote, although Victoria Ltd appoints the managing director. 
Profits are split 50-50 after the provision of the managing director's salary. Kaiser Ltd has agreed that it will pay a management fee to Victoria Ltd, equivalent to 50 per cent of the results for the year, in the event of a loss.  Victoria Ltd is the holder of 10 options, which are exercisable at any time at a 10 per cent discount to the fair value of the shares as at the exercise date. 
 
(b)Ludmilla Ltd, Milner Ltd and Gray Ltd are each 33.3 per cent shareholders of Northern Properties Pty Ltd, a small proprietary company that is involved in the fishing Industry. Ludmilla Ltd and Gray Ltd are passive shareholders with one board seat each out of a total of three. Milner Ltd has one board seat and is also involved in the day-to-day running of the      business. 
(c)Wanguri Ltd is a 51 per cent shareholder in Driver Ltd and currently has two out of five board seats. Brinkin Ltd is the remaining 49 per cent shareholder and currently has the other three seats. Wanguri Ltd is a passive shareholder as it is happy with the way Brinkin Ltd has been running the company. 
 
(d)Red Stocking Pty Ltd is a family-run business that has not managed to keep up with technical innovations within the industry. As a result the company has lost market share to its competitors. This year the company’s bank, Sue and Grabbit, seized the company's assets. The bank converted all the debt into equity and had two of the bank’s directors appointed to Red Stocking Pty Ltd’s board. The board has a total of four members.  The bank has not decided what to do with the company's assets, as they have little recoverable value and would not realise a great deal if sold. One option is to invest further equity into the company, buy more up-to-date equipment and attempt to trade on and sell the business as a going concern. 
 
(e)Nim Ltd is a 30 per cent shareholder of Rod Co. Pty Ltd. The other shareholders have smaller shareholdings (around 8 to 12 per cent) and are always too busy to attend annual general meetings. Nim Ltd has two nonexecutive seats on the board and the remaining three are held by other shareholders, one chief executive officer who is a shareholder and two non-executives, who do make an attempt to attend board meetings. 
 
(f)Side Mount Ltd, a diving equipment supplier, started business 12 years ago and is 60 per cent owned by Dual Tank Ltd. Side Mount Ltd has been very successful generating on average profits of $500 000 annually. Unfortunately due to the downturn in the industry the company has had financial problems and has failed to meet its loan commitments with its bank. The bank has taken a more hands on approach to monitoring the company's activities so that it can obtain repayment of its debt. The company is now required to seek the bank's authorisation prior to any expenditure over $5000. Changes to the way the company operates can only be implemented with the bank's approval.
