IFRS for SMEs: What will the implementation of IFRS for SME bring for timber industry?
AbstractAt vero Agricultural activity and forestry are largely different from other activities that the entities perform in order to achieve profit. Unlike other business entities, agricultural produce is significantly dependent on natural climatic conditions, and therefore a particular specialization of agricultural produce depends on geographic location. Agricultural and forest producers use every form of business organization, from small farms to large publicly held corporations. Although most entrepreneurs working in agriculture and forestry are small and medium enterprises, the specifics of agriculture are significantly reflected in the financial reporting intended primarily for large corporations traded on the capital markets. There are designed specific procedures of recording in relation to the nature of biological assets and agricultural produce and ways of measurement in this paper. The nature of biological assets is considered as distinguishing criterion (consumable assets, bearer assets and consumable assets with long production cycle).
