 less accumulated amortisation and accumulated impairment losses. Included in the computer software costs are the costs related to the technology transformation plan undertaken by the SC. The expenses incurred during the research stage were expensed off accordingly.
The useful lives of computer software are assessed to be finite. Computer software is amortised over their estimated useful lives of three years and assessed for impairment whenever there is an indication that they may be impaired.
The amortisation periods and methods are reviewed at least at each financial year end. Changes in the expected useful lives or the expected pattern of consumption of future economic benefits embodied in the assets are accounted for by changing the amortisation periods or methods, as appropriate, and are treated as changes in accounting estimates. The amortisation expense on computer software with finite lives is recognised in profit or loss. Projects-in-progress are not amortised as these computer softwares are not yet available for use.
Gains or losses arising from derecognition of computer software are measured as the difference between the net disposal proceeds and the carrying amount of the asset and are recognised in profit or loss when the asset is derecognised.
(d) Leases
(i) Definition of a lease
A contract is, or contains, a lease if the contract conveys a right to control the use of an identified asset for a period of time in exchange for consideration. To assess whether a contract conveys the right to control the use of an identified asset, the SC assesses whether:
• The contract involves the use of an identified asset – this may be specified explicitly or implicitly and should be physically distinct or represent substantially all of the capacity of a physically distinct asset. If the supplier has a substantive substitution right, then the asset is not identified;
• As a lessee, it has the right to obtain substantially all of the economic benefits from use of the asset throughout the period of use; and
• As a lessee, it has the right to direct the use of the asset. The SC has this right when it has the decision-making rights that are most relevant to changing how and for what purpose the asset is used. In rare cases where the decision about how and for what purpose the asset is used is predetermined, the SC has the right to direct the use of the asset if either the SC has the right to operate the asset; or the SC designed the asset in a way that predetermines how and for what purpose it will be used.
At inception or on reassessment of a contract that contains a lease component, the SC allocates the consideration in the contract to each lease and non-lease component on the basis of their relative stand-alone prices. However, for leases of properties in which the SC is a lessee, it has elected not to separate non-lease components and will instead account for the lease and non- lease components as a single lease component.
(ii) Recognition and initial measurement
As a lessee
The SC recognises a right-of-use asset and a lease liability at the commencement date of the contracts for all leases excluding short-term leases or leases for which the underlying asset is of low value, conveying the right to control the use of an identified asset for a period of time.
The SC has classified leasehold land, office premise and computers equipment, which in substance were a finance lease as right-of-use assets.
