However, during the second reporting period the outlook deteriorates and the expected credit loss on the guarantee rises to 30% or CU 150m. Hence, the government concerned would need to record a charge of CU 40m in increasing the carrying value from CU110m to CU150m. Government entities who have issued the financial guarantees must estimate the expected credit loss of the amounts borrowed to determine whether or not it is higher than the initial fair value.

IPSAS 413 provides examples of the types of information that may be relevant in assessing changes in credit risk. Some jurisdictions have recently announced extensions to their various schemes, some focusing on particular sectors. These extensions in themselves could be seen as possible impairment indicators since the implicit assumption is that the effected entities would not be able to conduct business as usual. A key consideration at this point is whether the government has the necessary information to determine the fair value, which is likely to be very challenging given the uniqueness of the support being provided by governments. There is unlikely to be an active market with observable prices for these guarantees and valuation techniques may rely on mathematical models which consider financial risk. However, most governments are providing guarantees at no cost as part of their COVID support measures, and so the amount to be recorded for each financial guarantee so issued will need to be determined on an alternative basis.

Entities should normally value a modern equivalent asset in line with the Red Book. Any plans to value a reproduction of the existing asset instead should be discussed with the relevant authority (through sponsoring bodies where appropriate) to determine whether such an approach is appropriate to the entity’s circumstances. The choice of an alternative site will normally hinge on the policy in respect of the locational requirements of the service that is being provided. 9.1.11 The carrying value of the assets and liabilities of the combining bodies or functions are not adjusted to fair value on consolidation.

government accounting

While corporate accounting primarily concerns itself profit and loss and enhancing shareholder value, government accounting is about budget compliance and the efficient use of public resources. A fundamental principle in the preparation of accounts is that they should reflect conditions that existed at the reporting date. Events that occur after the reporting date but before the accounts are authorised for issue are either adjusting or non-adjusting events.
