Product Information


By the end of this webinar the participant should:

  • Be able to understand how to apply IFRS 5 in different circumstances. 
  • Advice clients on alternative treatments.   


Taking cognizance of the poor state of many international economies, assets regularly get disposed of before their intended date of disposal.   

The moment the intention to prematurely dispose of an asset occurs, IFRS 5 requires an ‘impairment test’ to be performed on such asset, or group of assets (called a disposal group). There are also important deferred tax consequences that should be considered as part of the decision to recover the carrying amount of an asset principally through sale.  

Master how to account for non-current assets held for sale by joining Anton van Wyk M.Com, CA(SA) for this webinar.
