Accounting Manual

In order to assist licensees to comply with the accounting separation provision under the Broadcasting Ordinance, the Authority would publish a draft accounting manual for industry consultation in February 2006. The draft accounting manual seeks to give guidance on the accounting practice for adoption by television programme service licensees, which also hold telecommunications licences under the Telecommunications Ordinance, to facilitate the separation of accounts for the television broadcasting and telecommunications businesses so as to provide transparency and guard against anti-competitive practices (such as unfair cross-subsidization or discriminatory pricing). The Authority plans to finalize the accounting manual and promulgate it around the second quarter of 2006.
