From the Author Differences between GAAP and IFRS Fixed assets is an area where there are really significant differences between GAAP and IFRS, so if you are using GAAP right now and you think you will be switching over, then expect to be doing things differently in the future The biggest difference is that IFRS allows you to either record a fixed asset at its cost, or to revalue it to fair value But if you do revalue it, you have to revalue the entire class of assets, not just one asset within a class By making you revalue an entire class of assets, IFRS makes sure that you cannot use selective revaluations And the same thing goes for investment property Under GAAP, you carry it at cost, but under IFRS, you have a choice of using either cost or fair value The obvious question is, how do you account for a change in an asset s fair value under IFRS Well, if an asset increases in value, then you recognize the gain in other comprehensive income and the offset is to a revaluation surplus in equity And if the asset value decreases, then you recognize it as a loss Now, if the value decreases and then goes back up again, you can recognize a profit to the extent of the original loss, and then drop the rest of the gain into other comprehensive income Of course, there is a problem with revaluing assets all the time, which is that it is expensive and it is time consuming So IFRS recommends revaluing about once every 3 to 5 years And if you do revalue, IFRS recommends that you use a professional appraiser Another major difference is the treatment of asset impairments Under GAAP, if you have an impairment, then it is charged to expense, and you cannot take it back But under IFRS, if the asset s value goes back up, you can take back the amount of the impairment And also under IFRS, if you are valuing fixed assets at their fair value and you recognize an impairment, then you treat the impairment as the reversal of any upward revaluation that you already recorded, to the extent of the revaluation If the impairment exceeds the revaluation, then you charge the remainder against current income A less important difference is that if you pay for a major overhaul of an asset, you have to add the cost to an asset under IFRS, but you generally charge it to expense under GAAP And that covers the significant differences for tangible fixed assets But then, we have intangible fixed assets, which are things like copyrights and patents And there are some major differences here, too First, under GAAP, you charge all research and development costs to expense right away But in IFRS, you charge research to expense but you capitalize development and then you amortize it Now in order to capitalize development costs, you do have to meet a bunch of criteria, so it is not that easy Still, for a company doing a lot of development work, this could be major change And also, if you recognize impairment of an intangible asset under GAAP, then you can never reverse the impairment But, under IFRS you can, though not if the intangible happens to be goodwill And finally, under some very limited circumstances, you can revalue intangible assets under IFRS, but you cannot do that under GAAP The problem with revaluing an intangible asset is that there usually is not much of a market for this kind of asset, so you just cannot justifiably revalue it And if you cannot justify a revaluation, then you have to carry it at cost So, overall there are a couple of key points to remember First, GAAP is very conservative and rigid when it comes to valuing fixed assets, whereas IFRS allows you to take advantage of fair value changes, which is way common sense Second, you could see a lot of companies in the RD field finding an excuse to switch to IFRS, and then start capitalizing their development costs But keep in mind, if you do that, you still have to amortize the costs eventually, so there may a reportable drop in development expenses in the first year or two, but over the long term, there will not be much of an impact on their profits And finally, it does sound pretty nifty to be able to revalue your fixed assets, but you also have to pay for the appraisals, so there is an out of pocket cost if you choose to go down that path.
