Basis for preparation

These interim financial statements are prepared in accordance with IAS 34 Interim Financial Reporting and IFRS standards. The comparative information on the previous periods converted to comply with IFRS and the resulting changes compared to the FAS-based interim financial statements are presented above in this Interim Report.

The preparation of IFRS financial statements requires application of judgement by VVO Group’s management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities on the balance sheet date and the reported amounts of income and expenses for the financial year. Management has to make judgements also when applying the accounting policies of the Group. As the estimates and related assumptions are based on management’s view at the end of the interim period, they include risks and uncertainties. Actual results may differ from the estimates and assumptions used. Below are presented the most significant items of the interim financial statements where judgement has been applied by management, as well as the assumptions about the future and other key uncertainty factors in estimates at the end of the reporting period which create a significant risk of change in the carrying amounts of VVO Group’s assets and liabilities within the next financial year.

  • Classification of properties in Group’s operating activities as well as classification of investment property acquisitions either as business combinations or asset acquisitions
  • Recognition principle of deferred taxes
  • Classification of financial instruments
  • Classification of long-term leases into operating leases
  • Exemptions applied in the IFRS transition
  • Fair value measurement of investment property: In the consolidated financial statements, the determination of the fair value of investment property is the key area that involves the most significant uncertainty factors arising from the estimates and assumptions that have been used. The determination of the fair value of investment property requires significant management discretion and assumptions, particularly with respect to market prices and amounts of future rental income. VVO uses valuation techniques that are appropriate under those circumstances, and for which sufficient data is available to measure fair value, maximising the use of relevant observable inputs and minimising the use of unobservable inputs.

The figures for the income statement and balance sheet are consolidated. The figures in the report are rounded, and consequently the sum of individual figures may deviate from the aggregate amount presented. The Interim Report is unaudited.
