In 2001 the Group changed its accounting policy regarding fit-out contributions received from landlords. Prior to 2001 contributions were either capitalised and taken to income at a later date or taken to income in full upon receipt of the contribution. The new policy required that all contributions must be initially capitalised and then recognised in the statement of financial performance over the minimum period of the lease as a reduction in operating lease costs. The lease periods average 5 years.
The table below summarises the net impact on the reported results of the company resulting from the change in accounting policy.
