What will be the recognition value of donated properties?

There are two types of donations-in kind, donation without condition and donation with condition.

Donation without condition

Cost of PPE acquired through donation without condition shall be taken up at its fair value at the date it is acquired. All expenses incurred in connection with the donated asset, such as delivery and installation costs, shall be included in the amount recognized as asset.   The fair value of the PPE shall be recognized as “income from Grants and Donations in Kind”.

Donation with condition

Where a PPE is acquired through donation with conditions or restrictions, a liability account shall be recognized until the conditions or restrictions have been fulfilled.

  1. Land (at fair value)  xx
