The general procedures for assessing impairment of assets are based on information derive from historical experience, adjusted where necessary with an assessment of existing conditions and also a forecast of future economic conditions. These procedures are inherently complex and required significant professional judgement, especially when such procedures are overlapping with unpredictable events occurring after the reporting period under volatile economic conditions environment that is volatile and unpredictable, such as those caused by Covid-19 pandemic.

The main principle of impairment is set out in ‘IASFRS36 Impairment of Assets’ for most non-financial assets which is based on the concept of ‘recoverable amount’, while ‘IFRS9 Financial Instruments’ prescribes a single impairment principle for financial assets based on the concept of ‘expected credit loss’.  Besides the foregoing, there are also various impairment models for different classes of assets.

      • 3rd Forecast of future economic conditions (forward-looking information)
    • “Full models”: including ECL for Stage-1 (12-months ECL), state-2 and Stage-3
    • “Simplified model”: including ECL for Stage 2 and Stage 3 only
  • Financial assets outside the scope of FRS109:
    • Investment in subsidiaries, associates and joint ventures (JV) using cost method
    • Associates and joint ventures using equity method – order of impairment:
      • 1st Applying ‘ECL’ to receivables (including ‘net investments’ in associates & JV)
      • 2nd Share of losses of associates and JV
      • 3rd Applying FRS36 ‘Recoverable amount’

Impairment principles for other assets

  • Estimating with lower of cost and net realisable (FRS2)
  • Dealing with lower of carrying amount and fair value less cost to sell (FRS105)
  • Review of sufficient taxable profit that a deferred tax asset can be utilised (FRS12)
  • Assessing the recoverability of contract cost recognised as an assets (FRS15)
  • Process of impairment leading to a provision for onerous contracts (FRS37)
