In the case of financial instruments not classified as at fair value through profit and loss, transaction costs that are directly attributable to the acquisition or issue of the financial instrument are added to the fair value.

Accounts payable are stated at gross invoiced value less discounts. Foreign payables are re-valued at yearend spot rates prevailing in the market.Read More
