The General Staff also took into account and objected to the interpretation of unavoidable costs by applying the IAS 11 or IFRS 15 guidelines on contractual costs or costs related to the performance of a contract. The United Communities argued that it would not be appropriate to refer to IAS 11, given that it will be withdrawn upon the entry into force of IFRS 15 and that the guidelines of IFRS 15 were not written to assess whether a contract is chargeable. In particular, IFRS 15 requires an entity to assess whether a contract with a customer within the meaning of IAS 37 is chargeable. IAS 37 defines an charge contract as a contract in which the unavoidable costs of performing the obligations under the contract exceed the expected economic benefits. IAS 37.68 provides that unavoidable costs reflect the lower costs of performing a contract and any indemnification or penalty resulting from non-performance. In cases where the penalties exceed the cost of performance of the contract, the question obviously arises as to what is the “unavoidable cost of performance of the contract”. IFRS® provide specific guidelines for (loss-making) contracts, i.e. for which the unavoidable costs of performing obligations exceed the expected economic benefits of the contract. The unavoidable costs are the lower net costs for the performance of the contract and the costs of terminating it. The key to addressing these factors and protecting your interests is a thorough review of all your insurance contracts and contracts: these guide you through the content and timing required of each notification and who it should go to. For example, Article 15 of an untreated AIA A201-2007/2017 requires that notification of a request for an extension of time be submitted within 21 days of the event that motivated the right or the date on which the event/condition is identified. However, a non-standard construction form or ancillary agreement such as a financing agreement may have much shorter notice periods and require significant details, for example.
B a detailed description of the event, the expected impact of time, the expected impact of costs and/or reduction efforts. If you do not contain this information, you may waive your right to extend the time limit. If the occupancy/closure of a condo/house is not ensured by the date of external occupancy/closure, the buyer has a period of 30 days to terminate the contract of sale. This view interprets unavoidable costs as additional contract costs. These include costs such as direct materials and direct labor, which are purchased and hired specifically for the performance of the contract. That view does not envisage unavoidable cost positions, such as an allocation of depreciation on assets that are also used for other projects and an allocation of overhead costs that would have been borne by the undertaking even if it did not have the contract. Appendix C of the document contains the Staff`s assessment of the costs that would be considered unavoidable from each of the above perspectives. An example of an expense contract could be an agreement to lease real estate that is no longer needed or can no longer be used for profit. Suppose a company signs a multi-year contract for the rental of office space, then moves or reduces while the contract is still in effect and leaves empty the offices for which it is no longer used.
Or think of a mining company that has signed a lease for the extraction of coal or other goods on land, but at some point, during the term of the contract, the price of that product drops to a level that makes mining and marketing unprofitable. A force majeure event is unpredictable and inevitable and is not the result of actions by both parties, which prevents someone from honoring a contract. . . .
