FINANCIAL REVIEW For the purpose of fair value disclosures, the group has determined classes of assets and liabilities on the basis of the nature, characteristics and risks of the asset or liability and the level of the fair value hierarchy as explained above. 2.2 Foreign currencies 2.2.1 FUNCTIONAL AND PRESENTATION CURRENCY Items included in the financial statements are measured using the currency of the primary economic environment in which the business operates (functional currency). The financial statements are presented in rand, which is the company’s and group’s functional and pre- sentation currency. 2.2.2 FOREIGN TRANSACTIONS Transactions in foreign currencies are converted at spot rates applicable on the trans- 2.2.3 action dates. Monetary assets and/or liabilities in foreign currencies are converted to rand at spot rates applicable at the reporting date. Exchange differences arising on settle- ment or recovery of such transactions are recognised in profit or loss. FOREIGN OPERATIONS The results and financial position of all group entities (none of which has the currency of a hyper-inflationary economy) that have a functional currency different to the company’s presentation currency, are translated into the presentation currency as follows: Assets and liabilities at the closing exchange rate at the reporting date; Income and expense items are translated at the average exchange rates (unless this average is not a reasonable approximation of the cumulative effect of the rates pre- vailing on the transaction dates in which case income and expenses are translated at the dates of the transactions); and 2.3 Property, plant and equipment Property, plant and equipment are held with a view to generate economic benefit from it for more than one period of use in the production or supply of goods or services or for administrative purposes and are not acquired for resale purposes. All property, plant and equipment items are initially recognised at cost. Thereafter it is measured with reference to the cost of the asset less accumulated depreciation and accumulated impair- ments. The cost of property, plant and equipment includes the following: purchase price including import duties, non-refundable purchase taxes and costs directly attributable to bringing an asset to the location and condition necessary to operate as intended by management, less trade discounts and rebates. Property, plant and equipment with a cost of more than R7 000 are capitalised, while assets with a cost of less than R7 000 are written off against operating profit. Profits and losses on sale of property, plant and equipment are calculated on the basis of their carrying values and are accounted for in operating profit. With the replacement of a part of an item of property, plant and equipment, the replaced part is derecognised. The replacement part shall be recognised according to the recognition cri- teria as an individual asset with specific useful life and depreciation. The carrying values of property, plant and equipment are considered for impairment when the events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying values are no longer recoverable from its future use or realisation of the assets. Depreciation is calculated on a fixed percentage basis over the expected useful life at the following rates: All resulting exchange differences are recognised in other comprehensive income. % On disposal of foreign operations, the component of other comprehensive income relating to that particular foreign operation is reclassified out of other comprehensive income. Goodwill and fair value adjustments arising from the acquisition of a foreign entity are treated as assets and liabilities of the foreign entity and translated at the closing rate at the reporting date.
