Payments relating to contingent liabilities (IAS 37)
Following the IFRS Interpretations Committee agenda decision in January 2019 regarding tax deposits, HEINEKEN has changed its accounting policy with regards to payments relating to contingent liabilities.
Payments relating to contingent liabilities are now, in accordance with the conceptual framework, recognised as an asset on the balance sheet when it is probable (>50%) that HEINEKEN will recover the payment. Previously, these payments were contingent assets under IAS 37, and recognized if the recovery was virtually certain (>95%). In all other cases, they were accounted for directly in the profit and loss statement, if and when cash was actually recovered.
Significant judgement is applied for identifying and accounting for payments relating to contingent liabilities. The change in accounting policy in relation to estimating the likelihood, determining the timing of potential cash inflows and the recoverability is complex and requires significant judgement.
Acquisition-related intangible assets
Acquisition-related intangible assets are assets that HEINEKEN only recognises as part of a purchase price allocation following an acquisition. This includes, among others, brands, customer-related and certain contract-based intangibles.
