Stop the stable measuring unit assumption (i.e. stop Historical Cost Accounting).
1. Implement IFRS-authorised Capital Maintenance in Units of Constant Purchasing Power in terms of a Daily Index.
2. Keep no monetary item overnight unless it is inflation-indexed on a daily basis during inflation.
3. Your General Conditions of Sale (Contracts) has to state that outstanding receivables and payables will be measured in units of constant purchasing power on a daily basis in terms of a Daily Index from the date of sale (contract) till the date of settlement.
Do not ask the IASB for guidance in this issue. They do not understand IFRS-authorised CMCUPP. Contact me for guidance at realvalueaccounting[at]yahoo.com.
