As Singapore and countries around the region are seeing recurring waves of COVID-19 cases, the adverse impact of the pandemic on the profitability, asset values and market capitalisation of many companies persists. Therefore, impairment testing continues to remain relevant.
Impairment testing models needs to be updated and reflect both the current status of a business and economic and industry outlook. Property, plant and equipment, goodwill and other intangible assets needs to be assessed for impairment.
Due to unstable trading conditions and some customers’ inability to pay debts when due, estimating expected credit loss allowance (ECL) will require more judgment.
This workshop covers FRS 36 Impairment of Assets (including identifying indicators of impairment, understanding valuation approaches, applying commonly used valuation methods, preparing supportable forecasts and estimating an appropriate discount rate) and FRS 109 Financial Instruments, specifically measuring impairment under the ECL model for trade receivables, contract assets and lease receivables.
The objective is not only to equip participants with technical knowledge, but it is also designed to develop skills to estimate impairment loss at a practical level.
