Since these are between 90 and 111%, then derivative is effective – changes reflected only in statement of net assets.
Way out of corridor (2.81% ÷ 3.58% = 78.49%)
Fair value is calculated by taking the net present value of the cash flows at 3%. Fair value of the derivative is the swaption, less the borrowing. The change in fair value is the current year’s less the previous year’s fair value.
The beginning balance is the original fair value of the borrowing. The interest accrual is the beginning fair value x 3% x (180/360). The swap payments are after the exercise date. Ending balance = beginning + interest – payments. The $1,250,000 starts in 2½ years until maturity.
