29 Nov, 2016

The European Public Real Estate Association (EPRA) has published updated Best Practices Recommendations Guidelines (“the BPR Guidelines”). It has also published a question and answer document that is intended to provide additional information on the BPR Guidelines.

The Best Practice Recommendations set out additional performance measures and supplementary information to be presented in the annual reports of public real estate companies, with the aim of making the financial statements of these companies clearer, more transparent and comparable across Europe.  The BPR are important to both investors and financiers. 

The Guidelines, which assist in applying the BPR, include:

  • EPRA BPR General recommendations;
  • EPRA performance measures;
  • Core recommendations;
  • Best practice examples; and
  • An EPRA BPR checklist. 

The Best Practice Recommendations Guidelines and Best Practice Recommendations Q&A are available from the EPRA website.  Our EPRA Annual Report Survey 2015/16 is available here.
