How should we disclose …

Is there any guideline for measurement of loan impairment and recognition of interest income by using effective rate method

Asim

well Esther the UK leads the path i.e. the UK tax authorities are the only ones in Europe which accept IFRS reporting to the extent that its website http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/ does have a section allocated to differences between IFRS and UK GAAP

Thank you in advance.

Hi,
What disclosures does a company need to give for Interest rate swaps and which standards are applicable for this.
Thanks

Hi there,
sale?

Assets held for sale include assets (or groups of
assets to be disposed of) whose carrying amount will
be recovered principally through a sale transaction

operations/assets held for sale are measured
at the lower of their carrying amount or fair value
less costs to sell.

Dear All
 
Please advise your views whether subject item does come under the scope of IAS 23 or IAS 39. The loan facility is repayable in 30 years and interest rate is variable interest rate and we hedge the interest rate by taking interest swap contracts with banks.
 
In case someone needs more facts to get to the bottom of the case, Please let me know.
 
with regards
Ram

Dear Ram,
My first reaction would be IAS 39 and not IAS 23 unless the case is that you want to capitalize these costs as part of …

Dear All,

As someone could let me know when all European entities should comply with the IFRS reporting format.
Up to now we comply with the LuxGaap or USGaap but I heard that we should report next January 2008 in IFRS.
Have you the article who mentioned this transition ?

Thanks and kind regards

See extract below:
“Currently, the EU has adopted all IFRSs, though one aspect of IAS 39
was modified. The modification affects only a small percentage of EU
banks following IFRSs. Also, EU …
