Recognition of compensation when it 'becomes receivable'

The IFRS Interpretations Committee received a request to clarify the timing of recognition of compensation for insured property plant and equipment (PPE) that has been impaired or lost (for example, as a result of a natural disaster). The recognition requirements for this type of compensation are in paragraph 65 of IAS 16 Property Plant and Equipment.
