(4) the assets must be proved in systematic order in the system of accounts with the inventory, as well as the arrivals and departures are value and value change.

(5) the net present value is the value resulting from the discounted cumulative payments. When interest rate is, as far as not in individual cases other prescribed, that to use, which is the interest rate of the weighted by circulation current on the statement closing date average return for German Government bonds (UDRB).

(6) acquisition costs are all costs of purchase, purchase price including import duties, transport costs, costs bring the asset to a working condition, settlement costs, non-refundable sales taxes, less directly identifiable discounts and cash discounts.

(10) the depreciation of an asset is linear and starts with the start-up. If the asset is available, located on his site and in the working condition and is taken within six months in operation, depreciation has to begin at the end of the six months. For the calculation of the depreciation, the useful lives in annex 7 should be used. Other estimated economic useful life, stems from the actual conditions of the asset it is to be used and justified. The purchased asset is more than six months of the budget year in the fixed assets, so the amount attributable to a year is half off, otherwise. An exact month depreciation is allowed.

(11) amounts in foreign currency shall be converted at the benchmark rate of the European Central Bank (ECB) to the account closing date of the financial year in euro.

(14) when operations are known, suggest a significant impairment or a beyond the linear depreciation significant impairment of an asset, this is something to check. If this is the case, then the asset with the recoverable amount is to evaluate. The recoverable amount of an asset is the fair value less cost to sell or use value.

(15) an impairment is to perform exclusively for previously impaired assets according to paragraph 14, provided that the circumstances that led to the impairment, have changed. The updated acquisition or manufacturing costs, which would have existed without original impairment at the time of the impairment, may not be exceeded.

(2) individual value adjustments are exposures to capture at full or partial recovery of the claim. Receivables are to post, taking into account any VAT recovery, once the recovery is finally determined.

(3 simplified procedures in the event a specific allowance) are allowed, if they are appropriate.

Supplies

Inventories and internally generated inventories are § 22 (1) to collect when their value per stock position exceeds EUR 5 000 to purchase or production cost. Supplies are at the account closing date, if their value exceeds EUR 5 000 per stock position to evaluate at the lower of the two following values:
