When unpaid interest has accrued before the acquisition of an interest-bearing investment, the subsequent receipt of interest is allocated between pre-acquisition and post-acquisition periods; only the post-acquisition portion is recognised as revenue.
Royalties accrue in accordance with the terms of the relevant agreement and are usually recognised on that basis unless, having regard to the substance of the agreement, it is more appropriate to recognise revenue on some other systematic and rational basis.
Revenue is recognised only when it is probable that the economic benefits associated with the transaction will flow to the entity. However, when an uncertainty arises about the collectibility of an amount already included in revenue, the uncollectible amount, or the amount in respect of which recovery has ceased to be probable, is recognised as an expense, rather than as an adjustment of the amount of revenue originally recognised.
An entity shall disclose:
the accounting policies adopted for the recognition of revenue,
including the methods adopted to determine the stage of completion
of transactions involving the rendering of services;
the amount of each significant category of revenue recognised
during the period, including revenue arising from:
the sale of goods;
the rendering of services;
the amount of revenue arising from exchanges of goods or services
included in each significant category of revenue.
An entity discloses any contingent liabilities and contingent assets in accordance
with IAS 37 Provisions, Contingent Liabilities and Contingent Assets. Contingent
liabilities and contingent assets may arise from items such as warranty costs, claims, penalties or possible losses.
This Standard becomes operative for financial statements covering periods beginning on or after 1 January 1995.
