Variable items

Variable items hold their values in terms of purchasing power as a result of the ways in which they are valued in terms of IFRS, SA GAAP or just simply in the market, in which their nominal values are adjusted to allow for the many factors that determine their values - including - amongst many factors - inflation. For example: fair value, market value, net realizable value, present value and recoverable value all adjust for inflation in the real value of the Rand as part of the specific valuation process.
Valuation values

Values used in the valuation of variable items on a primary valuation basis include the following:

Market value

Fair value

Net realisable value

Present value

Recoverable value

Current cost

Carrying value
