Impairment Testing

Impairment Testing

One of the key pillars of business practices is maintaining transparency in all details. In today’s dynamic business landscape, accurately assessing the value of assets is crucial for making informed financial decisions. Asset impairment testing involves evaluating whether the carrying value of a company’s assets exceeds their recoverable amount. If the Recoverable Amount exceeds the carrying value, then there is no goodwill impairment, and vice versa. This process is vital for ensuring the accuracy of financial statements and adhering to global regulatory requirements.

Therefore, the Capital Markets Authority in the State of Kuwait obligates all listed and licensed companies to submit a report on any impairment of assets.
