Property, Plant and Equipment: Proceeds before Intended Use (Amendments to IAS 16) [Completed]

Effective date:

The amendments published today are effective for annual periods beginning on or after  January 1, 2022. Early application is permitted. An entity applies the amendments retrospectively only to items of property, plant and equipment that are brought to the location and condition necessary for them to be capable of operating in the manner intended by management on or after the beginning of the earliest period presented in the financial statements in which the entity first applies the amendments.

Last up­dated:

Overview

The purpose of this project is to clarify the accounting for the net proceeds from selling any items produced while bringing an item of property, plant and equipment (PPE) into use.

The Interpretations Committee received a request to clarify the accounting for the net proceeds from selling any items produced while bringing an item of PPE to the location and condition necessary for it to be capable of operating in the manner intended by management. The submitter has asked whether the amount by which the net proceeds received exceed the costs of testing should be recognized in profit or loss or as a deduction from the cost of the PPE.

The Interpretations Committee added this item to its agenda and, after analysis of the issue, recommended that the Board propose a narrow-scope amendment to IAS 16 to prohibit the deduction of proceeds from selling items produced before an item of PPE is available for use from the cost of that PPE.

In May 2020, the International Accounting Standards Board (Board) issued Property, Plant and Equipment—Proceeds before Intended Use, which made amendments to IAS 16 Property, Plant and Equipment. The amendments prohibit a company from deducting from the cost of property, plant and equipment amounts received from selling items produced while the company is preparing the asset for its intended use. Instead, a company will recognize such sales proceeds and related cost in profit or loss.
