25.1.1 Financial receivables and other financial receivables


Financial receivables

Financial receivables, including trade receivables, are measured as at the date they arise at fair value, and then at amortised cost using the effective interest rate, including write-downs for expected credit loss.

The Group applies simplified methods of valuation of receivables measured at amortised cost if it does not distort the information contained in the statement of financial position, in particular when the period until the payment of receivables is not long.

For financial receivables, the Group assesses the amount of a write-down related to expected credit losses in the amount equal to expected credit losses during the whole lifetime of an instrument.

The Group measures financial assets at amortised cost, in accordance with the adopted business model.
