AASB 5/IFRS 5 Guide
'Non-current Assets Held For Sale and Discontinued Operations - Challenges in Applying IFRS 5' is a publication by the IFRS team at Grant Thornton International Ltd. IFRS 5 Non-current Assets Held for Sale and Discontinued Operations (IFRS 5) which is identical to AASB 5 Non-current Assets Held for Sale and Discontinued Operations, apart from Australian regulatory references, is not a new standard but experience has shown that implementing it can be a complex and time-consuming exercise. Significant judgment is required in some areas. Management and auditors should therefore assess the impact of IFRS 5 as soon as they become aware that it may be relevant. This publication explains IFRS 5's key implementation issues, common approaches to practical application and also includes several examples illustrating the Standard's disclosure and presentation requirements.
