Millager Company is a U.S.-based multinational corporation with the U.S. dollar (USD) as its reporting currency. To prepare consolidated financial statements for 2020, the company must trans- late the accounts of its subsidiary in Mexico, Cadengo S.A. On December 31, 2019, Cadengo’s balance sheet was translated from Mexican pesos (MXN) (its functional currency) into U.S. dollars as prescribed by U.S. GAAP. Equity accounts at that date follow:
Early in 2020, Cadengo negotiated a 5,000 Brazilian real (BRL) loan from a bank in Rio de Janeiro and established a sales office in Brazil. At the end of 2020, Cadengo provided Millager a trial balance that includes all of Cadengo’s Mexican peso–denominated transactions for the year. A separate ledger has been maintained for transactions carried out by the Brazilian sales office that are denominated in BRL. A trial balance for the Brazilian real-denominated transactions follows Cadengo’s MXN trial balance.
