Example: In our case, we model provisions for decommissioning costs, which are paid at the end of the investment period. The estimated costs are 100,000 EUR.
Graphically provisions look as follows:
Profit & loss: The amount will be charged on an equal basis over the term.
Cashflow: The total Cash Out will be at the end of the lifetime in 2014.
Balancesheet: The provision is continually built up in the balance sheet and released at the end of the term.
