In case of accounts payable there is little or no uncertainty relating to the amount due to a supplier or the timing when it becomes due. But if there is uncertainty about either the timing or the amount of the future expenditure required in settlement, we speak about provisions. The question arises, how the amount to be recognised as provisions shall be determined.
IAS 37 standard sets out the recognition, measurement and disclosure requirements of provisions, and it also deals with contingent assets and contingent liabilities. This course explains the concept and accounting treatment of provisions, contingent liabilities and contingent assets according to IAS 37 using practical examples and interim tests to enhance understanding.
