V. FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
1. SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONT’D)
(h) Property, plant and equipment (cont’d)
Freehold land and capital work-in-progress are not depreciated.
Depreciation is calculated to write off the depreciable amount of other property, plant and equipment on a straight-line basis
over their estimated useful lives. The depreciable amount is determined after deducting residual value from cost.
The principal annual rates used for this purpose are:
1% - 2%
Plant, machinery, cranes and trucks
Office equipment, renovations, furniture and fittings
10% - 40%
The residual values, useful lives and depreciation methods are reviewed, and adjusted if appropriate, at each reporting date.
(i) Investment properties
Investment properties are properties held to earn rental income or for capital appreciation or both rather than for use in the production
or supply of goods and services or for administrative purposes, or sale in the ordinary course of business. Investment properties
include properties that are being constructed or developed for future use as investment properties.
(i) Measurement basis
Investment properties are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation and impairment losses, if any.
The cost of investment properties includes expenditure that is directly attributable to the acquisition of the asset.
Subsequent costs are included in the asset’s carrying amount when it is probable that future economic benefits associated
with the asset will flow to the Group and the cost of the asset can be measured reliably. The carrying amount of the replaced
part is derecognised. All other repairs and maintenance are charged to profit or loss during the financial year in which they are
Investment properties are derecognised upon disposal or when they are permanently withdrawn from use and no future
economic benefits are expected from their disposal. On disposal, the difference between the net disposal proceeds and the
carrying amount is recognised in profit or loss.
