Trade and Other Receivables

Trade and other receivables excluding appropriations and other receivables that are held for the purpose of collecting the contractual cash flows where the cash flows are solely payments of principal and interest, that are not provided at below-market interest rates, and are subsequently measured at amortised cost using the effective interest method adjusted for any loss allowance. Receivables for goods and services, which have 30 day terms (2018-19: 30 days), are recognised at the nominal amounts.
