(b) It holds the asset primarily for the purpose of trading;
(c) It expects to realize the asset within twelve months after the reporting period; or

- A group of assets to be disposed of, by sale or otherwise, together as a group in a single transaction,
and liabilities directly associated with those assets that will be transferred in the transaction. The
group includes goodwill acquired in a business combination if the group is a cash-generating unit

Accounting policies
- Are the specific principles, bases, conventions, rules and practices applied by an entity in preparing
and presenting financial statements.
Change in accounting estimate
- Is an adjustment of the carrying amount of an asset or a liability, or the amount of the periodic
consumption of an asset, that results from the assessment of the present status of, and expected
future benefits and obligations associated with, assets and liabilities. Changes in accounting
estimates result from new information or new developments and, accordingly, are not corrections
of errors.
Prior period errors
- are omissions from, and misstatements in, the entitys financial statements for one or more prior
periods arising from a failure to use, or misuse of, reliable information that:
(a) was available when financial statements for those periods were authorized for issue; and

and presentation of those financial statements.
- Such errors include the effects of mathematical mistakes, mistakes in applying accounting policies,
oversights or misinterpretations of facts, and fraud.
Retrospective application
- Is applying a new accounting policy to transactions, other events and conditions as if that policy had
always been applied.
Retrospective restatement
- Is correcting the recognition, measurement and disclosure of amounts of elements of financial
statements as if a prior period error had never occurred.
For a particular prior period, it is impracticable to apply a change in an accounting policy retrospectively
or to make a retrospective restatement to correct an error if:
(a) The effects of the retrospective application or retrospective restatement are not determinable;
(b) The retrospective application or retrospective restatement requires assumptions about what
managements intent would have been in that period; or
(c) The retrospective application or retrospective restatement requires significant estimates of
amounts and it is impossible to distinguish objectively information about those estimates that:
(i) provides evidence of circumstances that existed on the date(s) as at which those amounts
are to be recognized, measured or disclosed; and
(ii) Would have been available when the financial statements for that prior period were
authorized for issue from other information.
Prospective application
- of a change in accounting policy and of recognizing the effect of a change in an accounting estimate,
respectively, are:
(a) Applying the new accounting policy to transactions, other events and conditions occurring after
the date as at which the policy is changed; and
(b) Recognizing the effect of the change in the accounting estimate in the current and future periods
affected by the change.
