    • when sales are made on credit the accounts receivable is recognized and recorded at the invoice amount when a sale is realized

    Mugan-Akman 2007

    Valuation of receivables ifrs l.jpg
    Valuation of Receivables-IFRS

    • a risk that a customer will not pay or will not be able to pay its debt

    • IFRS -accounts receivable should be valued at their net realizable value (or net recoverable amount)

    • Net Realizable Value represents the amount of cash expected to be collected from the receivables

    • net recoverable amount of accounts receivable (or trade receivables) is equal to their original values unless there is an indication of impairment

    • Entities should assess at each balance sheet date whether there is objective evidence that an account receivable may be impaired, and determine the amount of allowance that should be estimated based on the net realizable value or the discounted cash flow from such receivable

    • TAX- when it is certain that a customer is not going to pay write-off the account *i.e. erase from the accounts and record it as a loss

    Mugan-Akman 2007

    Impairment of accounts receivable ifrs l.jpg

      • If there is a high probability of bankruptcy of the customer,

      • If the customer delays its payments,

      • If the customer asks for extension of the payment period, and

      • If the economy in general or the industry the customer operates in suffers from financial difficulties

    • under IAS 39, general provisions are not permitted and all impairment of trade receivables must be measured using a discounted cash flow methodology

    Mugan-Akman 2007

    Impairment loss l.jpg
    Impairment Loss

    • measured as the difference between the original or the carrying value of the receivable and the present value of estimated cash flows discounted at the original effective interest rate of the receivable

    • effective interest rate is the rate that exactly discounts estimated future cash receipts through the expected collection date of the receivable to the net carrying amount of the receivable

    • Allowance for Uncollectible Accounts account

      • accumulates the estimated losses

      • contra-asset account

      • deducted from Accounts Receivable in order to determine the net realizable value of receivables

      • replenished every period

      • decreases by the realization of loss due to customer default through the write off process
