Accounting Policy

Leases in which a significant portion of the risks and rewards of ownership are retained by the lessor are classified as operating leases. Receipts by the Group as a lessor under operating leases (net of any incentives paid to lessees) are recognised as income in the consolidated statement of profit or loss on a straight-line basis over the period of the lease.

For commenced leases (which are not identified as low-value or short-term leases) undertaken by the Group as a lessee, right-of-use assets and the corresponding lease liabilities are recognised in the financial statements when the leased assets become available for use by the Group. Commitments in respect of leases payable by the Group as a lessee represent the total future lease payments for (i) committed leases which have not yet commenced at the year-end date and (ii) short-term leases.

The Group acts as both lessor and lessee under operating leases. Details of the Group’s commitments under non-cancellable operating leases are set out as follows:
