IAS 16 establishes principles for recognising and measuring items of property, plant and equipment as assets.
The proposed amendments would prohibit deducting sales proceeds from the cost of an item of property, plant and equipment while that asset is being made available for use. Instead, the company would recognise those sales proceeds and related costs in profit or loss.
The proposed amendments are put forward following discussions of the IFRS Interpretations Committee on accounting for proceeds and costs of testing.
The Exposure Draft is open for comment until 19 October 2017.
