Deferred income and government grants
As part of deferred income and government grants, the Group mainly recognises grants and subsidies received for the acquisition of property, plant and equipment and subsidies for development work.
Grants and subsidies received for the acquisition of property, plant and equipment are presented at the value of the cash received and recognised as other operating revenue commensurate with the corresponding depreciation expenses of the property, plant and equipment. This applies in particular to partially redeemed loans and credits and the settlement of the valuation of preferential loans.
Accruals are liabilities regarding goods / services received / performed but not paid for, billed and amounts payable to employees, in particular for bonuses and unused holidays. Although it is sometimes required to estimate the amount or the date of payment of accruals, the level of uncertainty is usually much lower than in case of provisions.
