Improvements to IFRS

Date recorded:


The Board discussed how an entity should handle an asset's depreciation at the point at which the asset's carrying amount is found to be below the amount of the asset's reassessed residual value. The Board decided that, when residual value exceeds net carrying amount for an asset (cost less depreciation) the entity should cease to depreciate the asset, on the basis that an asset should only be depreciated when there is a depreciable amount.
