Detailed Solution

118. Tip: Don’t be caught out by the fact that the question lists Competitor B first, when you might be expecting to see Competitor A then Competitor B. This is intended to throw those not paying attention.
Step 1 – add 15% to Competitor B’s revenue
112 x 115% = 128.8
Step 2 – decrease Competitor A’s revenue by 8%
90 x 92% = 82.8
Step 3 - Calculate the difference in corporation tax (at 30%)
(128.8 – 82.8) x 30% = 13.8 = Ł14 million (to the nearest Łmillion)
Thus the correct answer is (C), Ł14 million

119. Step 1 – calculate Competitor B revenue in \$ 632 x 1.66 = \$1,049
Step 2 – calculate Competitor C revenues in Euros 600 x 1.15 x = €690
Thus the correct answer is (B), \$1,049 million (Competitor B); €690 million (Competitor C)

120. Step 1 – calculate the difference in the exchange rate
1.20 - 1.15 = €0.05
Step 2 – calculate the difference in Euros
€0.05 x 63 = €3.15 million
Thus the correct answer is (D) €3.15 million

121. Step 1 – calculate the total Gross Profit
128 + 148 + 147 = 423
Step 2 – calculate the average
423 / 3 = 141 Step 3 – to the nearest Ł10million = Ł140 million
Thus the correct answer is (A), Ł140 million

122. Step 1 – calculate the corporation tax payable for each competitor
Competitor A = 90 x 22% = 19.8
Competitor B = 112 x 22% = 24.6
Competitor C = 117 x 15% = 17.6
Step 2 – calculate the total corporation tax payable
19.8 + 24.6 + 17.6 = Ł62 million
Thus the correct answer is (A), Ł62 million
