This question might be more related to SBR but it was triggered while studying for the AAA exam. The text book of Kaplan is saying that the property that is being constructed or developed for use as an investment property should not be treated as Investment property. Still, when checking on internet (www.iasplus.com) this is what I found: “In May 2008, as part of its Annual improvements project, the IASB expanded the scope of IAS 40 to include property under construction or development for future use as an investment property. Such property previously fell within the scope of IAS 16”.
