2 Critical accounting estimates and judgements

The preparation of IFRS consolidated financial statements requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities existing at the balance sheet date as well as the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Estimates and judgements are continually evaluated and are based on historical experience and other factors, including expectations of future events that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances. Actual results and timing may differ from these estimates.

The table below is listing the areas where management's accounting estimates and judgements are most critical to reported results and financial position. The table is also showing where to find more information about those estimates.
