Unformatted text preview: sharing control. Joint venture arrangements that involve a separate entity in which each venturer has an interest are referred to as jointly controlled entities. The Group reports its interests in jointly controlled entities using proportionate consolidation. The Group’s share of the assets, liabilities, income and expenses of jointly controlled entities are combined with the equivalent items in the consolidated financial statements on a line-by-line basis. Adjustments are made where necessary to bring the accounting policies in line with those of the Group. Any goodwill arising on the acquisition of the Group’s interest in a jointly controlled entity is accounted for in accordance with the Group’s accounting policy for goodwill arising on the acquisition of a subsidiary (see above). Where the Group transacts with its jointly controlled entities, unrealised profits and losses are eliminated to the extent of the Group’s interest in the joint venture. Goodwill Goodwill arising in a business combination is not amortised. Goodwill does not generate cash flows independently of other assets or groups of assets and is allocated to the cash-generating units (defined below) expected to benefit from the synergies of the combination that gave rise to the goodwill. Cash-generating units to which goodwill has been allocated are tested for impairment annually or more frequently if there is any indication that the cash-generating unit may be impaired. If the recoverable amount (the higher of fair value less cost to sell and value in use) of the cash-generating unit is less than the carrying amount of the cashgenerating unit an impairment loss is recognised. he impairment losses first reduces the carrying amount of any goodwill and then reduces the carrying amount of the other assets of the unit prorata on the basis of the carrying amount of the individual assets. The carrying amount of any individual asset is not reduced below its individual recoverable amount or zero. An impairment loss recognised for goodwill is not reversed in a subsequent period if the fair value of the cash-generating unit recovers. Any impairment is presented as impairment losses in the income statement. On disposal of businesses, the attributable amount of goodwill is included in the determination of the gain or loss on disposal. Cash-generating units A cash-generating unit is the smallest identifiable group of assets that generates cash inflows that are largely independent of the cash inflows from other assets or groups of assets. In identifying whether cash inflows from an asset (or group of assets) are largely independent of the cash inflows from other assets (or groups of assets), the management considers various factors including how management monitors the entity’s operations (such as by product or service lines, businesses or geographical areas). Goodwill is monitored and tested for the group of cash-generating units combined in markets where the fixed and mobile operations are monitored and reported as one operating segment. The group of cash-generating units is in any case not larger than an operating segment determined in accordance with IFRS 8 Operating Segments. Non-current assets held for sale and discontinued operations Non-current assets and disposal groups are classified as held for sale when their carrying amount will be recovered through a sale transaction rather than through continuing use. This condition is regarded as met only when the sale is highly probable and the asset (or disposal group) is available for immediate sale in its present condition. Appropriate level of management must be committed to the sale, which should be expected to qualify for recognition as a completed sale within one year from the date of classification. Non-current assets (and disposal groups) classified as held for sale are measured at the lower of the assets’ previous carrying amount and fair value less costs to sell and the assets are no longer depreciated (or amortised). A discontinued operation is a component of the Group that either has been disposed of, abandoned or is classified as held for sale, and represents a separate major line of business or geographical area of operations or is a subsidiary acquired exclusively with a view to resale. Profit after tax from discontinued operations is excluded from continuing operations and reported separately as profit (loss) from discontinued operations. Prior periods’ profit (loss) from discontinued operations is reclassified to be comparable. Assets and liabilities classified as held for sale are presented on separate line items in the statement of financial position as current assets and current liabilities. Prior periods are not restated in the statement of financial position. Revenue recognition and measurement Revenues are recognised when goods are delivered or services rendered, to the extent that it is probable that the economic benefits from the transactions will flow to the Group and the revenues can be reliably measured. Revenues are measured at the fair value of the consideration received or receivable, net of discounts and sales related taxes. These taxes are regarded as c...
