Managing the complexities in IAS 16 Property, Plant & Equipment 

IAS 16 Property, Plant and Equipment sets out the requirements for recognising and measuring an entity’s investment in long-term operational assets. Although fairly straight-forward, the standard contains areas where judgement, and at times, complex assessments are required to be made in order to derive the correct accounting treatment. The aim of this webinar is to highlight these areas and suggest practical options on how to manage these complexities.

The webinar-on-demand also delves into the latest amendment to the standard – “Proceeds before intended use” as well as provide an overview of the tax implications associated with property, plant and equipment.

By the end of the webinar-on-demand the participant should:

  1. Be able to identify, and understand the following complex areas contained within IAS 16 Property, plant and equipment:
    • Scoping
    • Zero-book value items
    • Componentisation
    • Replacement versus repairs & maintenance
    • Capitalisation criteria
  2. Understand and apply the “Proceeds before intended use” amendment in the standard effective for periods commencing on or after 1 January 2022;
  3. Understand the key tax principles related to capital expenditure and how to classify expenditure incurred relating to fixed assets; and
