UK, Local Authority SORP2 Fixed Assets revaluation and impairment enhancement, 2011:

By March 31, 2011 UK local authorities are to account for their fixed assets in accordance with guidelines as detailed in the Code of practice on local authority accounting in the United Kingdom 2010/11 based on International Reporting Standards, released by CIPFA in December 2009, also referred to as the 'Code'. The move to the Code from the UK GAAP-based SORP resulted in changes to the accounting entries related to revaluations and impairments for property, plant and equipment assets.


Applicable to:
E-Business Suite, Release 12.1.x

Solution:
The following revaluation and impairment functionality has been enhanced in Oracle Assets to address the fixed asset revaluation and impairment requirements for tangible property, plant and equipment assets, as per the 'Code':
