ADMINISTRATIVE RECEIVER is an Insolvency practitioner appointed when a company goes into receivership (work out). A company may go straight to administrative receivership, presided over by an administrative receiver, usually known simply as the receiver.
SEPARATE DETERMINATION CONCEPT holds that each component of any category of assets or liabilities should be valued separately when arriving at a total to be shown in the accounts for that category. For example, the value of each stock item should be calculated individually (at the lower of cost and net realizable value) and these values should then be totaled to give the stock figure which will appear in the accounts. Stock should not be valued at the lower of total cost and total NRV.
TAX SHELTER are legal methods taxpayers can use to reduce tax liabilities. An example is the use of depreciation of assets.
