Operating expenses include:

  • cost of goods, products, materials and services sold (cost of sales), incurred during a given reporting period, including any impairment losses on property, plant and equipment, intangible assets, right-of-use assets, receivables and inventories, adjusted by cost of manufacturing products for own purposes;
  • total costs of sales and administrative expenses incurred in the reporting period (recognised separately in the statement of comprehensive income).

Costs which can be directly attributed to revenues gained by the Group affect the financial result of the Group for such reporting period in which those revenues occurred.

Costs of manufacturing that can only be indirectly assigned to revenue or other benefits obtained by the Group affect the profit or loss in the portion pertaining to a given reporting period, and match the revenue or other economic benefits.
