11 Cover Sheet: Definition of the term �non-monetary asset� in SIC-13 and IAS 28 (revised in 2011)
There is currently an inconsistency between the requirements in IAS 27 and those in SIC-13 for transactions in which a parent contributes its interest in a subsidiary to a joint venture in exchange for an interest in that joint venture. SIC-13 restricts gains and losses to the extent of the interest attributable to the other equity holders, whereas IAS 27 requires full profit or loss recognition on the loss of control of the subsidiary. As a result, diversity in practice has emerged. The Committee discussed various alternatives that would address the inconsistency noted. The objective of the paper is to present the alternatives discussed and the Committee�s recommendations on that issue. With regard to a business that is contributed to a joint venture, the Committee expressed support for a full gain recognition on the loss of control of the business (whether the business is housed in a legal entity or not). The Committee decided to ask the Board whether it wants the Committee to consider further how to resolve the inconsistency noted.
