Reaction to the mandatory write-down provisions of AASB 1010 : accounting for the revaluation of non-current assets
Cotter, Julie, Martin, Tracy, & Stokes, Donald (1995) Reaction to the mandatory write-down provisions of AASB 1010 : accounting for the revaluation of non-current assets. Australian Accounting Review, 5(10), pp. 64-70.
Commentators in the financial press claimed that the amendments to AASB 1010, Accounting for the Revaluation of Non-Current Assets, issued in September 1991, would have “disastrous” implications for the accounts of companies. This paper is concerned with whether the amendments did indeed affect asset write-down activities. An analysis of write-down practices of 75 Australian companies before and after the amendments were operative suggests that the commentators' judgment could have been hasty.
