Emission rights are related to the emission of C02, which relates to the production of energy. These rights are freely tradable. Bought emission rights
and liabilities due to production of C02 are measured at cost, including any directly attributable expenditure. Emission rights received for free are also
recorded at cost, i.e. with a zero value.
(y) Recently issued IFRS
(i) Standards effective in 2012 and reflected in these consolidated financial statements
Standards and interpretations effective from 1 January 2012 did not have a significant impact on the Company.
(ii) New relevant standards and interpretations not yet adopted
A number of new standards, amendments to standards and interpretations are effective for annual periods beginning after 1 January 2013, and
have not been applied in preparing these consolidated financial statements. Those which may be relevant to the Company are set out below, however
HEIN EKEN does not expect these changes to have a significant effect on the consolidated financial statements.
IAS 19 Employee Benefits was amended. The standard is effective for annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2013 and was endorsed by the
EU. H EINEKEN has evaluated the impact of the applicability of this new standard. The prescribed calculation method to determine the return on net
assets would result in an estimated increase in total pension costs of EUR99 million for 2012. This amount represents the variance between expected
return on net assets and the prescribed application of the discount rate. Previously, total pension costs were reported within personnel expenses. With
effect from 1 January 2013 HEINEKEN will present the interest expense on its net pension liability, an estimated EUR60 million, in Other net finance
income and expenses.
IFRS 9 Financial Instruments introduces new requirements for the classification and measurement of financial assets. Under IFRS 9 (2009), financial
assets are classified and measured based on the business model in which they are held and the characteristics of their contractual cash flows. IFRS 9
(2010) introduces additions relating to financial liabilities. The IASB currently has an active project to make limited amendments to the classification
and measurement requirements of IFRS 9 and add new requirements to address the impairment of financial assets and hedge accounting. The
standard is effective for annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2015, but has not yet been endorsed by the EU. H EINEKEN is in the process
of evaluating the impact of the applicability of the new standard.
IFRS 10 Consolidated Financial Statements establishes principles for the presentation and preparation of consolidated financial statements when
an entity controls one or more other entities. This IFRS supersedes IAS 27 Consolidated and separate financial statements and SIC-12 Consolidation
- Special purpose entities and is effective for annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2014
IFRS 11 Joint arrangements establishes principles for financial reporting by parties to a joint arrangement. This IFRS supersedes IAS 31 Interest
in Joint Ventures and SIC-13 Jointly Controlled Entities - Non-monetary contributions by ventures and is adopted by the EU for annual periods
beginning on or after 1 January 2014 Under IFRS 11 the structure of the arrangement is no longer the only determinant for the accounting
treatment and entities do no longer have a choice in accounting treatment.
IFRS 12 Disclosure of interests in other entities applies to entities that have an interest in a subsidiary, a joint arrangement, an associate or an
unconsolidated structured entity. The EU has adopted this IFRS for annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2014 This IFRS integrates
and makes consistent the disclosure requirements for all entities mentioned above.
IFRS 13 Fair value measurement defines fair value; sets out in a single IFRS a framework for measuring fair value; and requires disclosures about fair
value measurements. The EU has adopted this IFRS for annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2014 The IFRS explains how to measure fair
value for financial reporting. It does not require fair value measurements in addition to those already required or permitted by other IFRSs and is not
intended to establish valuation standards or affect valuation practices outside financial reporting.
HEINEKEN has the intention to early adopt IFRS 10,11,12 and 13 to align with the IASB effective date of 1 January 2013.
