Two types of events can be identified: Those that provide evidence of conditions that existed at the balance sheet date (adjusting events after the balance sheet date); and Those that are indicative of conditions that arose after the balance sheet date (non-adjusting events after the balance sheet date).

IAS Examples of adjusting events (1) 1.The settlement after the balance sheet date of a court case that confirms that the entity had a present obligation at the balance sheet date. The entity adjusts any previously recognized provision related to this court case in accordance with IAS 37 or recognizes a new provision. 2.The determination after the balance sheet date of the cost of assets purchased, or the proceeds from assets sold, before the balance sheet date. 3.The determination after the balance sheet of the amount of profit- sharing or bonus payments. 4.The discovery of fraud or errors that show that the financial statements are incorrect.

IAS Examples of adjusting events (2) 5.The receipt of information after the balance sheet date indicating that an asset was impaired at the balance sheet date, or that the amount of previously recognized impairment loss for that asset need to be adjusted. For example:  The bankruptcy of a customer that occurs after the balance sheet date usually confirms that a loss existed at the balance sheet date on a trade receivable and that the entity needs to adjust the carrying amount of the trade receivable; and  The sale of inventories after the balance sheet date may give evidence about their net realisable value at the balance sheet date.

IAS Examples of non-adjusting events (1) 1.Decline in market value of investments between the balance sheet date and the date when the financial statements are authorized for issue. The decline in market value does not normally relate to the condition of the investments at the balance sheet date, but reflects circumstances that have arisen subsequently. Therefore, an entity does not adjust the amounts recognized in its financial statements for the investments. However, it may need to give additional disclosure.

IAS Dividends and going concern Dividends Dividends declared after the balance sheet date should not be recognised as a liability at the balance sheet date but should be disclosed in notes If dividends are declared (ie the dividends are appropriately authorized and no longer at the discretion of the entity) after the balance sheet date but before the financial statements are authorized for issue, the dividends are not recognized as a liability at the balance sheet date because they do not meet the criteria of present obligation in IAS 37. Such dividends are disclosed in the notes (IAS 1).

IAS Going concern If the going concern assumption becomes inappropriate after the balance sheet date, the financial statements should not be prepared on a going concern basis for example: Deterioration in operating results and financial position after the balance sheet date may indicate a need to consider whether the going concern assumption is still appropriate.
