OverviewFinancial statements' objective is to provide financial information about the reporting entity that is useful for existing and potential investors, lenders and other creditors in making decisions relating to providing resources to the entity. The aim of the impairment test is to define the recoverable amount of the asset tested and adjust carrying amount accordingly, to make sure the carrying amount of the assets presented in an entity's balance sheet is not higher than their recoverable amount.
IAS 36 standard sets out the impairment requirements of intangibles, property, plant and equipment and subsidiaries, investment in associates and joint ventures. This course explains the whole process of impairment recognition of these assets (such as the aim of the impairment test, concept of triggering event, indicators of impairment, concept of recoverable amount, six steps for allocation of impairment for a cash generating unit, impairment reversal, etc.) using practical examples and interim tests to enhance understanding.
