Q1 :What is meant by a Debenture?
Answer :  The word Debenture is derived from a Latin word ‘debere’ which means to borrow. A debenture is issued in the form of a certificate under the seal of a company and containing a contract for the repayment of the principal sum after a fixed period of time and payment of interest at regular intervals, generally half yearly. Debentures are issued by a company for acquiring long-term borrowings.


Q2 :What is meant by a debenture? Explain the different types of debentures?
Answer :  The word Debenture is derived from a Latin word ‘debere’ which means to borrow. A debenture is issued in the form of a certificate under the seal of a company and containing a contract for the repayment of the principal sum after a fixed period of time and payment of interest at regular intervals, generally half yearly. Debentures are issued by a company for acquiring long-term borrowings.
The debentures can be classified on the following basis.
1. On the basis of Security
a. Secured Debentures-
Mortgaged Debentures are those debentures that are secured against asset/s of a company. These are also known as secured debentures. In case the company fails to pay back the principal amount of debenture or fails to meet its interest obligations on the due date, then the debenture holders have the right to sell the mortgaged asset in order to realise their amount due to the company.
b. Unsecured Debentures- These debentures are treated as unsecured creditors. They do not have any security. These are uncommon now days.
2. On the basis of Tenure
a. Redeemable Debenture-
These debentures are payable after the expiry of a specific period. These debentures can be redeemed at par or premium either in lump sum or in installment. Generally all debentures are redeemable.
b. Irredeemable Debenture- Irredeemable Debentures are those debentures that cannot be repayable or redeemable by a company during its life time. These are repayable only at the time of winding up of the company. These are also known as Perpetual Debentures that means debentures having indefinite life. In India, now days, no company can issue irredeemable debentures.
3. On the basis of Mode of Redemption
a. Convertible Debentures-
Convertible Debentures are those debentures that can be converted into equity shares after a specified period of time. These are of following two types:
i. Fully Convertible Debentures: When the whole amount of a debenture is convertible into equity shares of equivalent amount, then these debentures are called Fully Convertible Debentures. There is no need to maintain Debenture Redemption Reserves for such debentures.
ii. Partly Convertible Debentures: When only a part of the amount of a debenture is convertible into equity shares, then these debentures are called Partly Convertible Debentures. In this regards, the Debenture Redemption Reserve is maintained only for the non-convertible part of the debenture.
b. Non-Convertible Debenture- These debentures cannot be converted into shares. Generally debentures are non convertible.
4. On the basis of Coupon Rate
a. Zero Coupon Rate-
These debentures do not contain a specific rate of interest and can be issued at discount. The excess of the face value of the debenture over its issue price is considered as interest amount.
b. Specific Rate- These debentures carry a specific rate of interest which may be fixed or floating.
5. On the basis of Registration
a. Registered Debenture-
While issuing such debentures, the company maintains a record regarding name, address and number of holding of debentures in the Register of Debenture Holders of the company.
b. Bearer Debentures- When a company does not maintain any record of the debenture holders and the debenture is transferable mere by delivery, then the type of the debenture held by the holders is termed as Bearer Debenture. Interests on such debentures are paid to the persons who produce the interest coupons that are attached with these debentures in a specified bank.


Q3 :What does a Bearer Debenture mean?
Answer :  When a company does not maintain any record of the debenture holders and the debenture is transferable mere by delivery, then the type of the debenture held by the holders is termed as Bearer Debenture. Interests on such debentures are paid to the persons who produce the interest coupons that are attached with these debentures in a specified bank.


Q4 :Distinguish between a debenture and a share. Why is debenture known as loan capital? Explain.
Answer :

Basis of Difference

Shares

Debenture

1. Owner or Creditor

Share holders are the owners since shares forms a are part of owned capital

Debenture holder are Creditors since debentures are a part of loan

2. Voting Rights

Share holders have the voting rights

Debenture holders do not have any voting rights.

3. Returns

Share holders are entitled for returns in  the
form of dividend.

Debenture holders are entitled for returns in the form of interest.

4. Rate of Return

The rate of dividend is not fixed and varies from year to year.

The rate of interest is fixed and do not vary from year to year.

5. Obligations of Return

Dividend is appropriation of profit. Dividend will not be paid if losses are incurred by the company

Interest is charged against profit, interest is payable even if there is no profit.

6. Repayment of Amount

The amount of share is not returned during the life time of the company

The amount of debenture is returned according to the term of issue.

7. Issue

The issue of shares at discount need adherence to the restrictions imposed by the Section 79 of the Company Act.

There are no such restrictions for issuing debentures on discount.

8. Conversion

Shares cannot be converted into debentures.

Debentures can be converted into shares.

9. Risk

Shares are more risky than debenture as these are unsecured.

If debentures are secured against asset, the risk involved is the minimal.

10. Repayment Priority

Payment to the share holders is made after settlement of all external liabilities, i.e. after debenture holders.

Payment to the debenture holders is made before the share holders.

Issue of debentures implies incurring long-term indebtedness. Generally, a company issues debentures for acquiring long-term borrowings to achieve its long-run targets and growth. Like the owner’s capital, interest is also payable on the principal amount of the debenture. The interest paid is regarded as an expense for the company and is deductible under Income Tax Act. Therefore, debentures are also known as loan capital because they are redeemable after a long period of time.


Q5 :State the meaning of ‘Debentures issued as a Collateral Security’.
Answer :  The term collateral security means additional or secondary security in addition to the primary security. Sometimes, when a company takes loan from a financial institution, then besides the primary security, the company may issue debenture for additional security (as collateral security). The lender who receives debenture as collateral security is not entitled for interest on these debentures. If any default is made by the company in paying back the principal amount (i.e. the loan amount) or interest on the loan, then the lender has the full right to recover his/her dues from the sale of primary security. But, if the primary security is not sufficient to recover the amount of the debt, then the debentures issued as collateral may be used for recovery of the remaining amount.


Q6 :Describe the meaning of ‘Debenture Issued as Collateral Securities’. What accounting treatment is given to the issue of debentures in the books of accounts?
Answer :  The term collateral security means additional or secondary security in addition to the primary security. Sometimes, when a company takes loan from a financial institution, then besides the primary security, the company may issue debenture for additional security (as collateral security). The lender who receives debenture as collateral security is not entitled for interest on these debentures. If any default is made by the company in paying back the principal amount (i.e. the loan amount) or interest on the loan, then the lender has the full right to recover his/her dues from the sale of primary security. But, if the primary security is not sufficient to recover the amount of debt, then the debentures issued as collateral may be used for recovery of the remaining amount.
Accounting Treatment
There are two ways to record issue of debentures as collateral security:
1. No Entry
As no liability has been created so no Journal entry is recorded in the books of account. As per the Revised Schedule-VI of the Companies Act, the issue of debenture as collateral security is shown as a Long-Term Borrowings under the heading of Non-Current Liabilities on the Equity and Liabilities side of the Balance Sheet. In the Notes to Accounts of Long-Term Borrowings, the Loan so taken is shown. And in the Notes to Accounts of Cash and Cash Equivalents, the amount of loan so received (in cash) is shown. This can be better understood with the help of the below explained example.
Example- Suppose Best Bus Ltd. issued 4,000 9% Debentures of Rs 100 each as collateral security to NBP bank for a loan of Rs 3,00,000.

Q7 :What is meant by ‘Issue of debentures for Consideration other than Cash’?
Answer :  If a company purchases assets from its suppliers or vendors, then instead of paying them in cash the company issues debentures to them. This is known as issue of debenture for consideration other than cash. The issue of debenture for consideration other than cash serves the purpose of both the vendor as well as of the purchaser (company). From the purchaser’s point of view, purchasing an asset against the issue of debentures requires no additional cost for raising loans or arranging funds immediately. On the other hand, the vendor gets interest on the amount of debentures received. In this case, payment is deferred by issue of debentures and interest is paid for time lag payment. Debentures may be issued at par, premium or discount to the vendor.

Q8:How is ‘Discount on Issue of Debentures’ treated in the books of accounts? How will you deal with the ‘discount in issue of debentures’ when the debentures are to be redeemed in instalments?
Answer:  When the debentures are issued at a price below its par value or face value, then it is said that the debentures are issued at discount. The difference between the issue price and the face value of the debenture is regarded as a capital loss. As per the Revised Schedule VI of the Companies Act, Discount on Issue of Debentures is shown in the Notes to Accounts:

1. With the amount that is to be written off within 12 months from the date of Balance Sheet – Shown under Other Current Assets

2. With the amount that is to be written off after 12 months from the date of Balance Sheet – Shown under Other Non-Current Assets

Year 1 Ammount to be written of each year 30,000 x 15 = 6000 – show in statements of Profit & Loss
Amount to be written-off in the next year = 6000 – show as other current assets under current Assates

Answer : The different terms for the issue of debentures with reference to their redemption can be the combinations of at par, at premium and at discount. Normally, the debentures are not redeemable at discount. The permutation and the combination of the various terms of issue and redemption of debentures give rise to following six situations:
1. Issue at Par, Redeemable at Par.
2. Issue at Premium, Redeemable at Par.
3. Issue at Discount, Redeemable at Par.
4. Issue at Par, Redeemable at Premium.

Q9 :Differentiate between redemption of debentures out of capital and out of profits.
Answer :
Redemption of Debentures Out of Capital
When debentures are redeemed out of capital and no profits are utilised for redemption, then such redemption is termed as redemption out of capital. In such a situation, no profits are transferred to the Debenture Redemption Reserve (DRR).
As per the guideline laid down by Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) and the Section 117C of Company Act of 1956, the creation of DRR is mandatory (DRR). Therefore, it is not possible to redeem debentures purely out of capital, as it reduces the value of assets. The following companies are exempted from the creation of DRR.
1. Infrastructure companies (i.e. those companies that are engaged in the business of developing, maintaining and operating infrastructure facilities)
2. A Company that issues debentures with a maturity up to 18 months
Redemption of Debenture Out of Profits
When debentures are redeemed out of profit then no capital is utilised for redemption. Before redeeming the debentures profits are transferred to DRR from Profit and Loss Appropriation Account. The creation of DRR is mandatory as per the guidelines laid down by Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI). SEBI mandates transferring amount equal to 50% of debentures issued to DRR before redeeming debentures. In this method, as profits are transferred to the DRR Account, thereby reducing the total amount of profits, therefore this method is termed as Redemption of Debentures Out of Profits. In this method, first of all, the required profits are transferred from Statement of Profit and Loss to the DRR Account. The working of which is shown in the Notes to Accounts of Reserves and Surplus (as prescribed in Revised Schedule VI). The final balance (after considering DRR) is shown as the sub-head ‘Reserves and Surplus’ under the main head of Shareholders’ Funds on the Equity and Liabilities side of the Company’s Balance Sheet. Lastly, when all the debentures are redeemed, then DRR account is closed by transferring its amount to the General Reserve.


Q10 :Explain the guidelines of SEBI for creating Debenture Redemption Reserve.
Answer :
The following are the main points of SEBI’s guidelines for creation of Debenture Redemption Reserve (DRR).
1. Every company that issues debentures with a maturity of more than 18 months shall create DRR.
2. An amount equal to 50% of debenture issued shall be transferred to DRR before starting redemption of debentures.
3. Creation of DRR is applicable only for Non-Convertible Debentures and for non-convertible part of Partly Convertible Debentures.
4. Any withdrawal from DRR is allowed only after 10% of debentures are redeemed.
Thus, as per the SEBI’s guidelines, 50% of the debentures issued should be redeemed out of the profits that are transferred to DRR and the remaining 50% of the debentures issued can be redeemed either out of profits or out of capital. Hence, no company can redeem all the debentures issued purely out of the capital.
As per the SEBI’s guidelines the following companies are exempted from the creation of DRR.
1. Infrastructure companies (i.e. those companies that are engaged in the business of developing, maintaining and operating infrastructure facilities)
2. A Company that issues debentures with a maturity up to 18 months


Q11 : Describe the steps for creating Sinking Fund for redemption of debentures.
Answer :
The various steps involved in the creation of Sinking Fund for redemption of debentures can be better understood by the help of the example explained below.
A Company issued 10% Debentures of Rs 5,00,000 for 3 years. The investment is expected to earn 6% p.a. The Sinking Fund table shows that 0.31411 invested annually at 6% amount to Rs 1 in 3 years.
Step1: Calculate the amount of installment to be required every year for investment with the help of the Sinking Fund table. Like in the example Rs 1,57,055 (i.e.0.31411 × 5,00,000) is required every year.
Step 2: The amount of installment calculated in the above step is transferred to the Debenture Redemption Fund (Sinking Fund) by debiting from Profit and Loss Appropriation Account.
Step 3: In the first year, the above installment is invested to yield amount required for redemption of debenture by debiting Debenture Redemption Fund Investment Account.
Step 4: The interest on investment is received on half yearly or annual basis. In the example, the interest of Rs 9,423 is received on annual basis.

Step 5: The total amount of investment, i.e. interest plus installment is invested in the subsequent year. In the example, Rs 1,66,478 (i.e. Rs 1,57,055 + Rs 9,423) is invested in the next year.
Step 6: Repeat the Step 2, 3, 4 for each subsequent years up to the end of the life of the debenture. In the year of redemption, the installment (i.e. the last installment) will be debited to the Profit and Loss Appropriation Account but will not be invested.
Step 7: In the year of redemption, the investment is sold off.
Step 8: The profit (loss) on the sale of the investment is transferred by debiting (crediting) Debenture Redemption Fund Investment Account to the Debenture Redemption Fund Account.
Step 9: The payment to the debenture holder is made.
Step 10: The balance of Debenture Redemption Fund Account if any, is transferred to the General Reserve.


Q12 : Can a company purchase its own debentures in the open market? Explain.
Answer : Yes, a company can purchase its own debentures provided it is authorised by its Article of Association. As per the Company Act, if a company is authorised by its Article of Association, only then it may purchase its own debentures from the open market. The main purposes of such purchase are as follows:
1. For immediate cancellation of debenture liability, if the interest rate on its debenture is higher than the market rate of interest.
2. A company may also purchase its own debentures with the motive of investment and sell them at higher price in future and thereby earn profit.
A company may purchase its own debentures at discount or at premium for cancellation.
1. If Debentures are purchased at Discount for Cancellation
When the company purchases its own debentures at discount for cancellation, then the following Journal entries are recorded.

Q13 :What is meant by conversion of debentures? Describe the method of such a conversion.
Answer : When a debenture holder can convert his/her debentures into shares or new debentures after the expiry of a specified period of time, then it is known as redemption of debentures by conversion. As the company does not need to pay any funds for the redemption, so there is no need to maintain Debenture Redemption Reserve (DRR). The new shares or debentures may be issued at par, premium or at discount.

If a debenture holder exercises the conversion option, then the issue price of shares must be equal to or less than the amount actually received from debentures.

Indicate the amount of discount to be written-off every accounting year assuming that the company decides to write off the debentures discount during the life of debentures. (Amount to be written-off: 2011 Rs 6,000; 2012 Rs 6,800; 2013 Rs 5,200; 2014 Rs 3,600; 2015 Rs 2,000; 2016 Rs 400).
*It should be December 31
Answer:

Amount of discount to written off every year

In 2000 = Rs 6,000

In 2001 = 2,000 + 4,800 = Rs 6,800

In 2002 = 1,600 + 3,600 = Rs 5,200

In 2003 = 1,200 + 2,400 = Rs 3,600

In 2004 = 800 + 1,200 = Rs 2,000

In 2005 = Rs 400
