T Impairment of Assets

At the Balance Sheet date an assessment is done to determine whether there is any indication of impairment in the carrying amount of the company's fixed assets. If any such indication exist the asset's recoverable amount is estimated. An impairment loss is recognised whenever the carrying amount of an asset exceeds it's recoverable amount. After the recognition of impairment loss the

depreciation charged for the assets is adjusted in future periods to allocate the asset's revised carrying amount less the residual value, if any, on the written down value basis over it's useful remaining life.

U Provisions, Contingent Liabilities and Contingent Assets

The company recognises a provision when there is a present obligation as a result of a past event that probable requires an outflow of resources and a reliable estimate can be made of the amount of obligation. A disclosure for a contingent liability is made when there is a possible obligation or a present obligation that may, but probably will not require an outflow of resources.

Provisions are reviewed at each Balance Sheet date and adjusted to reflect the current best estimate. If it is no longer probable that the outflow of resources would be required to settle the obligation, the provision is reversed.

Contingent assets are not recognised in the financial statements. However, contingent assets are assessed continually and if it is virtually certain that an economic benefit will arise, the asset and related income are recognised in the period in which the change occurs.
