In cases where a property changes character during the year, earnings attributable to the property will be allocated to either segment based on the period of time that the property belonged to the segment. Central administration and items in net financial items have been allocated to the segments in a standardised manner based on each segment’s share of the total property value (indirect income and expenses).

The property asset is directly attributable to each segment and is recognised as of the closing date.
