IAS 18 — Transfers of assets from customers


The IFRIC was asked how a utility or other company account for the receipt of customer contributions. Such contributions arise because the customer is required to contribute an asset (or cash towards the construction or acquisition of an asset) that is then used to provide access to an ongoing supply of goods or services to the customer.
