The consolidated financial statements have been prepared on the historical cost basis, except from remeasurements of investment property and some financial instruments, which are measured at fair value.
The preparation of consolidated financial statements in compliance with IFRS requires the PZU Management Board to make professional judgments, estimates and assumptions that affect the adopted accounting policies and the presented values of assets, liabilities, revenues and costs.
Such estimates and associated assumptions are based on historical experience and other factors which are considered reasonable in existing circumstances and their results provide grounds for making a professional judgment regarding the carrying amount of assets and liabilities that does not result directly from other sources.
In making judgments, estimates or assumptions, the PZU Management Board may, in significant matters, rely on the opinions of independent experts.
The actual value may differ from the estimated one. All judgments, estimates and related assumptions are revised on an ongoing basis. Their changes are recognized as described in section 0.
The key accounting policies, estimates and judgments used for the preparation of the consolidated financial statements are described below and in the individual notes as specified in the table below.
