31. Non-current assets held for sale

Accounting policies

Only assets available for immediate sale in the current condition are classified as non-current assets, when such sale is highly probable, i.e. the entity has determined to sell the asset, started to actively seek a buyer and finish the sale process. In addition, such assets are offered for sale at a price which is reasonable with respect to their current fair value and it is expected that the sale will be recognized as completed within one year from the date of classification of the asset into this category.

Annual report

These assets are recognized at the lower of their carrying amount and fair value less costs to sell. Impairment allowances on non-current assets held for sale are recognized in the income statement for the period in which the allowances were made. Amortization is not charged on assets classified to this category.

When the respective classification criteria to this category are no longer met, the Group reclassifies assets from non-current assets held for sale to appropriate other asset categories. Assets withdrawn from assets held for sale are measured at the lower of: 1) the carrying amount from before the moment of their classification to non-current assets held for sale, less amortization/depreciation that would have been recorded had the asset (or disposal group) not been classified as held for sale; 2) the recoverable amount as at the date of the decision to discontinue the sale.
