Critical Accounting Estimates

BlueShore’s significant accounting policies are outlined in Note 3 to the consolidated financial statements.

The preparation of financial statements in accordance with IFRS requires the use of certain critical accounting estimates and requires Management to exercise its judgement in applying BlueShore’s accounting policies. 

Changes in assumptions may have a significant impact on the consolidated financial statements in the period the assumptions are changed. The principal areas involving a higher degree of judgement or complexity and/or areas that require significant estimates are described in the table below. Please also see Note 4 of the consolidated financial statements for additional discussion of Management’s use of estimates and judgements.
