  42. 42. IPSAS 14EVENTS AFTER THE REPORTING DATE• Adjusting events are those that provide evidence of conditions that existed at the reporting date – adjust the FS toreflect those events that provide evidence of condition that existed at the reporting date e.g. settlement of courtcase after reporting date, that confirms that the entity had an obligation at reporting date)• Non-adjusting events are those that are indicative of the conditions that arose after the reporting date but do notadjust the FS to reflect the events that arose after the reporting date e.g. decline in fair value of property after yearend, which does not change the valuation of property at the reporting date)• Dividend proposed or declared after the reporting date shall not be recognized as a liability at the reporting date.Disclosure is required• An entity should not prepare its FS on the going concern basis if events after the reporting date indicate that thegoing concern assumption is not appropriate ( e.g. if there is an intention to liquidate the entity or ceaseoperations after reporting date, or that there is no realistic alternative to do so)• The entity shall disclose the date its FS were authorized for issue and who gave that authorization.

FV of the investment property shall still bediscolsed.– A chosen measurement model shall be applied to all the entity’s investment property– If an entity uses the FV model, but when a particular property is acquired, there is clearevidence that the entity will not be able to determine FV on continuing basis, the costmodel is used for that property – and it shall continue to be used until disposal of thatproperty. In that case,the residual value of the investment property shall be assumedzero– Change from one model to another shall be made only if the change will result in a moreappropriate presentation ( highly unlikely for change from FV to cost model)Sako Mayrick 44
  45. 45.

If payment is deferred, interest shall be recognized– Subsequent to acquisition, there are two accounting model for the entire class of PPE• Cost model: the asset is carried at cost less depreciation and impairment losses• Revaluation model: the asset is carried at revalued amount, which is fair value atrevaluation date less subsequent depreciation and impairment lossesSako Mayrick 45
  46. 46. IPSAS 17PROPERTY, PLANT AND EQUIPMENT• Revaluation Model– Revaluations shall be carried out regularly. All items of a given classshall be revalued. Revaluation increases shall be credited directly torevaluation surplus.– Increases shall be recognized as revenue in surplus or deficit to theextent that it reverses a revaluation decreases of the same class ofasset previously recognized as an expense in the surplus or deficit.– Decreases are debited first against the revaluation surplus relatedto the same class of assets, and any excess against surplus ordeficit.– When the asset is disposed off, the revaluation surplus istransferred directly to accumulated surpluses or deficits and is notrecycled through surplus or deficit.Sako Mayrick 46
  47. 47. IPSAS 17PROPERTY, PLANT AND EQUIPMENT• Each part of PPE that is significant in relation to the total cost of anitem shall be depreciated separately• Depreciation is charged systematically over the asset’s useful life. Itmust reflect the pattern in which the asset’s future economic benefitsor service potential is expected to be consumed by the entity.• The residual value must be reviewed must be reviewed at leastannually and shall equal the amount the entity would receivecurrently if the assets were already of the age and condition expecteda the end of its useful life.• If operation of an item of PPE (e.g. aircraft) requires regular majorinspections, when each major inspections is performed, its cost isrecognized in the carrying amount of the asset as a replacement, ifthe recognition criteria are satisfied.Sako Mayrick 47
  48. 48. IPSAS 17PROPERTY, PLANT AND EQUIPMENT• Land and buildings are separable assets and are accounted separately, even when they areacquired together. Land has normally unlimited useful life, and therefore is not depreciated• To determine whether an item of PPE is impaired, the entity applies IPSAS 21 or IPSAS 26 asappropriate• All exchange of PPE shall be measured at FV, including exchanges of similar items, unlessthe exchange transaction lack commercial substance or the fair value of neither the assetreceived nor the asset given up is reliably measurable• The carrying amount of item of PPE must be derecognized– On disposal, or– When no future economic benefit or service potential is expected from its use or disposal• The gains of disposal shall be included in surplus or deficit and shall not be classified asrevenue.• IPSAS 17 contains transitional provisions allowing entities not to recognize PPE for reportingperiods beginning on the date within five years following the date of first adoption ofaccrual accounting in accordance with IPSAS• The transitional provisions allows entities to recognize the PPE at cost or fair value on firstadopting of the standardSako Mayrick 48
