JohnnyWu How about B?
johntan1979 I thought US GAAP permits reversal for impairments of assets held for sale???
CHUCKYT I believe assets held for sale are revalued at the end of an accounting period if they are not sold. If the fair value less cost of disposal is greater than the carrying value then a gain is recognized not to exceed previous impairment losses.
khalifa92 US GAAP neither allows reversal for impairment nor revaluation.
john6668 GAAP allows for reversal of impairment if the asset is held for sale; this is an answer from Analyst Notes in Reading 27 I think.
