Current Asset

Current Asset
The revised Schedule states that an asset shall be classified as current when it satisfies any of the following norms :
  1. it is expected to be realised in, or is intended for sale or consumption in, the company's normal operating cycle;
  2. it is held primarily for the purpose of being traded;
  3. it is expected to be realised within 12 months after the reporting date; or
  4. it is cash or cash equivalent unless it is restricted from being exchanged or used to settle a liability for at least 12 months after the reporting date.
All other assets shall be classified as non-current.
Current assets include assets such as inventories and trade receivables that are sold, consumed or realised as part of the normal operating cycle even when they are not expected to be realised within 12 months after the reporting period. Current assets also include assets held primarily for the purpose of trading and the current portion of non-current financial assets.
