9. Other balance sheet items

9.1. Other trading receivables and other receivables

Trade and other receivables are recognized and carried at original invoice amount less an allowance for any uncollectible amounts. An estimate of allowance for doubtful debts is made when collection of the full amount is no longer probable. 

If the effect of the time value of money is material, the value of receivable is determined by discounting the expected future cash flows to the current value, with applying the discount rate that reflects the current market assessments of time value of money. If the method consisting in discounting has been applied, the increase of receivables due to time lapse is recognized as financial revenues. 

Trade and other receivables embrace in particular settlements with off-takers. 

Budgetary receivables are recognized as part of other financial assets, except for corporate income tax receivables, which are a separate item on the balance sheet.

9.2. Liabilities

Other financial liabilities comprise in particular: payables for the benefit of tax office due to goods and service tax, settlements with suppliers and payables due to received prepayments, which will be settled by means of delivering goods, services or tangible assets. Other financial liabilities are recognized in the amounts due.   

9.3. Non current assets held for sale and discontinued operation 

The Group classifies a non-current asset (or disposal group) as held for sale if its carrying amount will be recovered principally through a sale transaction rather than through continuing use. For this to be the case, the asset (or disposal group) must be available for immediate sale in its present condition subject only to terms that are usual and customary for sales of such assets (or disposal groups) and its sale must be highly probable, i.e. the appropriate level of management must be committed to a plan to sell the asset (or disposal group), and an active programme to locate a buyer and complete the plan must have been initiated. Further, the asset must be actively marketed for sale at a price that is reasonable in relation to its current fair value. In addition, the sale should be expected to qualify for recognition as a completed sale within one year from the date of classification. 

Non current assets held for sale are priced at the lower of two: its carrying value or fair value less cost to sell. Assets classified in this category are not depreciated.

Where the criteria for classification as non-current assets for sale are no longer met, the Group will no longer classify that asset as an asset for sale (or a group of assets for sale) but reclassify it as appropriate. In such a case, the Group measures the asset that is no longer classified as an asset for sale (or that is no longer part of a group for sale) at the lower of the following amounts: 

  • its carrying amount from the period before the asset (or disposal group) was classified as held for sale, adjusted for any depreciation, amortisation or revaluations that would have been recognised had the asset (or disposal group) not been classified as held for sale, 
  • its recoverable amount at the date of the decision not to sell. 

Discontinued operations are components of the Group that either have been disposed of or are classified as held for sale and represent a separate major line of business or geographical area of operations, are a part of a single co-ordinated plan to dispose of a separate major line of business or geographical area of operations or are a subsidiary acquired exclusively with a view to resale. The classification to this category takes place at the moment of sale or when the operation meets criteria of the operation classified as held for sale, if this moment took place previously. Operations held for sale, which are to be no longer used, can be also classified as a discontinued operation.

9.4. Cash and cash equivalents

Cash and cash equivalents for the purposes of a cash flow statement include: cash in hand and cash held at the Central Bank, cash equivalents e.g. balances on current accounts and overnight deposits held by other banks.
