Programme Overview
 
Accounting standards set out the measurement principles for all assets included in the statement of financial position. The initial recognition of an asset may simultaneously give rise to the recognition of other items in the financial statements such as a liability and this may affect the valuation of the assets.
 
The value of assets is influenced by a myriad of factors in practice such as the cost of purchase, borrowing costs, decommissioning costs, commissioning costs, foreign exchange, taxation, hedging activities, nature of acquisition contracts etc. Standard setters have issued numerous accounting standards to tackle the valuation of an asset both on initial recognition and on subsequent measurement. The value of assets can also be impaired by unfavourable future operating conditions that are highly judgemental and controversial.

  • Measurement principles of assets and its interrelationship with liabilities
  • Various methods and options that are permitted for managing value of assets under accounting Standards
  • Use of discounted cash flow techniques to measure assets such as:
  • Leases, decommissioning costs, impairment of assets, fair value measurement, amortise cost accounting etc
  • Classification and measurement of financial assets
