27. Loans to joint ventures


Loans granted to a joint venture do not satisfy the criteria to be recognised as a net investment in a joint venture.


In accordance with the requirements of IFRS 9 Financial Instruments, the Group appropriately classifies and measures its loans and estimates the allowance for expected credit losses for loans classified as assets measured at amortised cost.

As at the balance sheet date, the loan granted under the debt consolidation agreement, due to the fact that the cash flows do not correspond solely to the payment of principal and interest, was classified as a financial asset measures at a fair value through profit or loss. The Group has estimated the fair value accordingly. The methodology for calculating fair value is presented in Note 51 to these consolidated financial statements.

Other loans are measured at amortised cost and at each balance sheet date the Group estimates expected credit losses. The methodology and expected credit loss amounts are presented below and in Note 52.1.4 to these consolidated financial statements.
