Property, plant and equipment are nonmonetary assets. Property, plant and
equipment purchased in a foreign currency should be initially measured and recorded
in an entity’s functional currency using the exchange rate on the date it is acquired. It
should not be subsequently remeasured for changes in exchange rates during the
period it is held.
