The cost of transferring ownership of financial assets is treated as current expenditure while that for non-financial assets is treated as capital expenditure.

The review was expanded to cover the treatment of costs of ownership transfer on disposal of an asset, including terminal costs, and the period over which costs of ownership transfer should be written off via consumption of fixed capital.
