Application of Ind AS 105- (Non Current asset held for sale or group disposal) in case the decision is after the reporting period but before the approval of financial statement by board
According to Ind AS 105 (Non-current asset held for sale)
An entity shall classify 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. (Para 6)
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. Thus, an asset (or disposal group) cannot be classiﬁed as a non-current asset (or disposal group) held for sale, if the entity intends to sell it in a distant future. (Para 7)
For the sale to be highly probable if,
and actions required to complete the plan should indicate that it is unlikely that signiﬁcant changes to the plan will be made or that the plan will be withdrawn. The probability of shareholders’ approval (if required in the jurisdiction) should be considered as part of the assessment of whether the sale is highly probable. (Para 8)
