Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements - 26 sale in its present condition. Management must be committed to the sale, which should be expected to qualify for recognition as a completed sale within one year from the date of classification. In the consolidated statement of comprehensive income of the current reporting period, and of the comparable period of the previous year, income and expenses associated with assets held for sale are reported separately from income and expenses from continuing operations, down to the level of profit after taxes, even when the Group retains a non-controlling interest in the subsidiary after the sale. The resulting profit or loss (after taxes) is reported separately in the consolidated statement of comprehensive income. Interests in Joint Venture and Joint Operations The Group has joint arrangements classified as joint venture and joint operations. Joint Venture. A joint venture is a type of joint arrangement whereby the parties that have joint control of the arrangement have rights to the net assets of the joint venture. Joint control is the contractually agreed sharing of control of an arrangement, which exists only when decisions about the relevant activities require unanimous consent of the parties sharing control. The considerations made in determining joint control are similar to those necessary to determine control over subsidiaries. The Group’s investment in a joint venture is accounted for using the equity method. Under the equity method, the investment in a joint venture is carried in the consolidated balance sheet at cost plus post-acquisition changes in the Group’s share in net assets of the joint venture. Goodwill relating to the joint venture is included in the carrying amount of the investment and is neither amortized nor individually tested for impairment. The consolidated statement of comprehensive income reflects the Group’s share of the results of operations of the joint venture. Any change in the OCI of the joint venture is presented as part of the Group’s OCI. In addition, when there has been a change recognized directly in the equity of the joint venture, the Group recognizes its share of any changes, when applicable, in the consolidated statement of changes in equity. Unrealized gains and losses resulting from transactions between the Group and the joint venture are eliminated to the extent of the interest in the joint venture. The aggregate of the Group’s share of profit or loss of a joint venture is shown in the face of the consolidated statement of comprehensive income outside operating profit and represents share in income or loss after tax and noncontrolling interests in the subsidiaries of the joint venture. The financial statements of the joint venture are prepared for the same reporting period as the Group. Adjustments are made to bring the accounting policies in line with those of the Group. Upon loss of joint control over the joint venture, the Group measures and recognizes any retained investment at its fair value. Any difference between the carrying amount of the former joint venture upon loss of joint control and the fair value of the retained investment and proceeds from disposal is recognized in profit or loss. When the remaining investment in a joint venture constitutes significant influence, it is accounted for as an investment in an associate. Joint Operations. A joint operation is a joint arrangement whereby the parties that have joint control of the arrangement have rights to the assets, and obligations for the liabilities relating to the arrangement.
