Accounting policies (extract)


Revenue from sale of goods and rendering of services is recognized in the income statement provided that delivery and transfer of risk to the buyer has taken place before year-end and that the income can be reliably measured and is expected to be received. Extended warranties are separated from the sale of goods and recognized on a straight-line basis over the term of the contract. The value of extended warranties that are not separately priced is estimated. Revenue is measured excluding VAT, taxes and granted cash and quantity discounts in relation to the sale and expected returns of goods. The portion of goods sold that is expected to be returned is determined based on historical product returns data.
