Trade receivables are due for settlement within no more than 30 days. Collectability of trade receivables is reviewed on an ongoing basis. Debts which are known to be uncollectible are written off. A provision for impairment of receivables is established when there is objective evidence that the Group will not be able to collect all amounts due according to the original terms of receivables. Significant financial difficulties of the debtor, probability that the debtor will enter bankruptcy or financial reorganisation, and default or delinquency in payments (more than 30 days overdue) are considered indicators that the trade receivable is impaired. The amount of the provision is the difference between the asset's carrying amount and the present value of estimated future cash flows, discounted at the effective interest rate. Cash flows relating to short-term receivables are not discounted if the effect of discounting is immaterial. The amount of the provision is recognised in the income statement. As of 31 December 2017, trade receivables of the consolidated entity with a nominal value of $2.58 million (2016: $0.62 million) were past due but not impaired. These relate to a number of independent customers and students for whom there is no recent history of default. The ageing analysis of these receivables is as follows: Consolidated Parent Entity 2017 2016 2017 2016 $'000 $'000 $'000 $'000 The ageing of these receivables is: 3 to 6 months 603 224 590 217 Over 6 months 1,978 397 1,891 397 Total 2,581 621 2,481 614
