a more detailed explanation:

Recoverable amount is the HIGHER of the:

•Fair value less those expenses relating to the disposal/sale of the asset and
•Value in use of an asset
A simple illustration:

Company XYZ has a plant & machinery which has a fair value of \$100,000 and estimate that the costs to dispose of the asset should be \$ 15,000. If the company decides to continue to use the asset the present value of the net cash flow from the asset is estimated to be \$70,000

To calculate the recoverable amount, it is the higher of:

(a) Fair value less costs to sell viz: \$100,000-\$15,000=\$85,000 and

(b) Value in use of the asset viz: \$70,000

which in this case is the fair value less costs to sell i.e. \$85,000
