Introduction
AASB 136 states the accounting provisions for the Impairment of Assets supported by
amendments incorporated by IAS 36 Impairment of Assets as provided by the IASB
(Kuzmina and Kozlovska, 2012). The present study provides descriptive evaluation for
computation of recoverable amount, the value in use and fair value of asset by rducing cost of
