MPERS vs MFRS : Government Grants

In this article, we share the main differences in the accounting requirements for associates under MFRS 120 and Section 24 of MPERS.

Government Grants

Government grants are assistance by the government in the form of transfers of resources to an entity in return for past or future compliance with certain conditions relating to the operating activities of the entity.

They exclude those forms of government assistance which cannot reasonably have a value placed upon them and transactions with the government which cannot be distinguished from the normal trading transactions of the entity.

Section 24 of MPERS - Government Grants

Use income approach as all government grants are income transactions.

If there is no specified future performance condition imposed, the grant is recognized upon receivable.

If there is a specified future performance condition imposed, the grant is recognized when the condition is met.

Government grants are measured at the fair value of the assets received or receivable.
