On the date of transition, a company could choose, as it´s deemed cost, historical cost if the previous gaap is not significantly different than IFRS or fair value for PPE, Intangibles and Investment property. I am not sure if I have it clear but under IAS 16, one can choose the deemed cost on a per-item basis on the date of transition.
Is the option at date of transition to use FV or historical cost on a per-item basis available for IAS 40 Investment Properties and IAS 38 Intangibles?
For measurement after recognition, all …

I read this statement some where:
The purposes of a quasi-reorganization are to restate overvalued assets to their lower
fair values (and thus reduce future depreciation) and to eliminate a retained earnings
deficit (and thus facilitate the declaration of dividends).
How overvaluing  assets to their lower fair values will reduce the current deficit???
Although it will reduce the future deprecistion??

Maybe there are revaluation surpluses under equity that can be transferred to the deficit while impairing the overvalued assets?
Kind regards,

Does anyone know where the best place to find
information on capitalizing internal software
development under IFRS?  Any links?  Which IAS/IFRS
standard is this covered under?
Thanks in advance for the help!

You raise an interest topic David,  I would like to see the view of others

In the meantime page 56 of the differences between IFRS and US GAAP might help you as in the latter some software deveopment costs can be capitalised which would imply that under IFRS they are not but let us see what the others say

I am sending this to you …

Hi all
For those companies who offer settlement discount, should we have an account to record the probable allowance for settlement discount or we should net it off against the revenue?
Thank you in advance.

I would like to know weather or not it is permissible to issue bounce shares against reserve created out of revaluation of fixed assets, with references. If not, can the revaluation reserves be used for any purpose before the sale/ de-recognition of the fixed asset

No, the revaluation reserve is restricted to use for revaluation increases and decreases only, see IAS 16 PPE sub 39 – 41, only when assets are sold, the whole surplus will be realized in the income statement or when depreciated, that part may be released to …
