2. Contributions in the form of depreciable tangible assets received or receivable by the public entity for use in providing services.

(2) In its accounts, a public entity shall reduce its liability for deferred capital contributions in respect of a depreciable tangible capital asset at the same rate as the rate at which amortization is recognized in respect of the asset, and shall account for the reduction of the liability in the periods during which the asset is used to provide services.

(3) In its accounts, a public entity shall recognize, as revenue, the capital contributions in respect of a depreciable tangible capital asset at the same rate as the rate at which amortization is recognized in respect of the asset, and shall account for the revenue in the periods during which the asset is used to provide services.

(4) If the net book value of a depreciable tangible capital asset is reduced for any reason other than amortization, a public entity shall, in its accounts, recognize a proportionate reduction of the deferred capital contributions for the asset and a proportionate increase in the revenue from deferred capital contributions for the asset.
