|Trade and Other Receivables||
Due to the short-term nature of the current receivables, their carrying amount is considered to be the same as their fair value.
The Group applies the simplified approach to providing for expected credit losses prescribed by AASB 9, which permits the use of the lifetime expected loss provision for all trade receivables. To measure the expected credit losses, trade receivables have been grouped based on shared credit risk characteristics and the days past due. The loss allowance provision as at 31 January 2019 is determined as follows, the expected credit losses incorporate forward looking information.
Reconciliation of changes in the provision for impairment of receivables is as follows:
The Group measures the loss allowance for trade receivables at an amount equal to lifetime expected credit loss (ECL). The ECL on trade receivables are estimated using a provision matrix by reference to past default experience of the debtor and an analysis of the debtor’s current financial position, adjusted for factors that are specific to the debtors, general economic conditions of the industry in which the debtors operate and an assessment of both the current as well as the forecast direction of conditions at the reporting date.
The Group has recognised a loss allowance of 48.40% against identifiable receivables at risk in excess of 90 days because historical experience has indicated that these receivables are generally not recoverable.
There has been no change in the estimation techniques or significant assumptions made during the current reporting period.
The Group writes off a trade receivable when there is information indicating that the debtor is in severe financial difficulty and there is no realistic prospect of recovery, e.g. when the debtor has been placed under liquidation or has entered into bankruptcy proceedings, whichever occurs first.
The ageing analysis of receivables is as follows:
During the periods ended 31 January 2018 and 31 January 2017 the carrying amounts of the trade receivables included receivables which were subject to a bank funding arrangement. Under this arrangement, Bendon had transferred the relevant receivables to BNZ in exchange for cash and is prevented from selling or pledging the receivables. However, Bendon has retained credit risk. The group therefore continues to recognise the transferred assets in their entirety in the balance sheet. The amount repayable under the factoring agreement is presented as secured borrowings.
