o) Impairment of intangibles, property plant and equipments

Each year, the Gambling Commission reviews the carrying amount of its intangible assets, property, plant and equipment to determine whether there is any indication that its assets have suffered any impairment in value. If any such indication exists, the recoverable amount of the asset is estimated in order to determine the extent of the impairment. The assets’ residual values and useful lives are reviewed and adjusted if appropriate. The recoverable amount is the higher of the fair value less costs to sell and the value in use. If the recoverable amount of an asset is estimated to be less than its carrying amount, the carrying amount of the asset is reduced to its recoverable amount. An impairment is immediately recognised as an expense.
