Impairment disclosures for non-financial assets amended 

The IASB has issued amendments to reverse the unintended requirement in IFRS 13 Fair Value Measurement to disclose the recoverable amount of every cash-generating unit to which significant goodwill or indefinite-lived intangible assets have been allocated. Under the amendments, recoverable amount is required to be disclosed only when an impairment loss has been recognised or reversed.

The amendments apply retrospectively for annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2014. Early application is permitted, which means that the amendments can be adopted at the same time as IFRS 13.
