Dear IFRS team,
We provide for early retirement or termination charges. Would it be
right in making the provision for the whole liability
(which could be for 5-10 years) that we know about in the year which
we make that commitment, or should this cost just hit the P&L as and
when it occurs?
Many thanks for your help,
Sheetal

Hi Sheetal
Termination benefits are recognized only when the employer has
demonstrated its commitment to provide the benefits with a formal
detail plan for the dismissal of group of employees, when the employer
has contractually agreed to pay a termination benefit to …

Dear all.

I have a question on valuation of equity investments.
What is the best method to value an unquoted investment
Cheers
Shehzad  

Well for unquoted investment you could:
If there is substantial market and volume of such equity in the market then, you could value it using market price.
If there is not market, or if, say due to the legal implications (private co. for example), the equity cant have liquidity in the market due to restrictions in transferring such shares, net worth (intrinsic value) method can be used.
There are other options for valuations …

Dear friends,
Can you please give your opinion for the capitalization of the followings:
Modification to Existing Car Park
Construction of Temporary Car Park
Refurnish-Cooling Tower
Thanks
Hemant

Dear
I think that all of these costs should be capitalized.


Hesham

I agree with Hesham, it is to be capitalised, modification & refurnishing
extends the life of the existing asset, thus providing future benefits.& for Construction of Temporary Car Park, it is to be seen as to how
temporary is the car park. If it does not give you future benefits, like a
park for a couple of months, I think it should be …

Will any one clarify the difference between Exceptional Items &

possibility to show extraordinary items in the P+L (IAS 1.85). Since
2004 this seems to be no longer allowed according to Dr. David
Grünberger who is member in the Accounting Regulatory Committee in
Brussels which decides upon the endorsement of new IAS/IFRS standards
within the EU. According to US-GAAP extraordinary items are …
