An asset is carried at an amount not exceeding the amount will be recovered through its use or sale. If this case proves, is described as impaired assets and IAS 36 requires the company to account for a loss of value. Also, the rule specifies that a business case should include (lessen) a loss of value and should provide information on assets that have depreciated. There may be situations in which external influences or changes in production methods within the entity led to decreased value of an asset far more than is acknowledged in annual depreciation costs. In this case, it is said that the asset is impaired.
