IAS 16 establishes principles for recognizing property, plant, and equipment as assets, measuring their carrying amounts, and measuring the depreciation charges and impairment losses to be recognized in relation to them. Property, plant, and equipment are tangible items that:

· are held for use in the production or supply of goods or services, for rental to others, or for administrative purposes; and

· are expected to be used during more than one period.

Property, plant, and equipment include bearer plants related to agricultural activity.

IAS 16 applies to the accounting for property, plant and equipment, except where another standard requires or permits differing accounting treatments, for example:

- assets classified as held for sale in accordance with IFRS 5 Non-current Assets Held for Sale and Discontinued Operations biological assets related to agricultural activity accounted for under IAS 41 Agriculture

- exploration and evaluation assets recognised in accordance with IFRS 6 Exploration for and Evaluation of Mineral Resources mineral rights and mineral reserves such as oil, natural gas and similar non-regenerative resources.

The cost of an item of property, plant, and equipment is recognized as an asset if, and only if:

· it is probable that future economic benefits associated with the item will flow to the entity; and

· the cost of the item can be measured reliably.

In this course, we will be learning practical aspects of implementing the standards

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body's logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
