9 Assets held for sale

Accounting policies + -
Non‑current assets (or disposal groups) classified as held for sale are valued at the lower of their carrying amount and fair value less costs to sell if their carrying amount will be recovered principally through a sale transaction rather than through continuing use. These classification criteria do not include non‑current assets to be abandoned or those that have been temporarily taken out of use. An impairment loss (or subsequent gain) reduces (or increases) the carrying amount of the non‑current assets or disposal groups. The assets are not depreciated or amortised. Interest or other expenses related to these assets are recognised as before the classification as held for sale.
Discontinued operations represent a separate major line of business that either has been disposed of or is classified as held for sale. Assets and liabilities attributable to the discontinued operations must be clearly distinguishable from the other consolidated entities in terms of their operations and cash flows. In addition, the reporting entity must not have any significant continuing involvement in the operations classified as a discontinued operation.
