IPSAS 16- Investment Property

The Organization acquired in 1974 the Madrid Union Building, an investment property in Meyrin, Canton of Geneva, Switzerland. The building had first been brought into service in 1964. The property is held at fair value based on a valuation at December 31, 2012 carried out by an independent expert holding recognized and relevant professional qualifications with recent experience in property valuation in the Canton of Geneva. Fair value was determined on an investment based valuation, whereby the future income stream from the property is capitalized at an appropriate investment yield. The yield was selected by reference to the perceived quality and duration of the income and the potential for further rental growth and was cross-referenced by the evidence provided by comparable sales. The valuation as at December 31, 2012 resulted in an increase in the fair value of the building of 0.5 million Swiss francs. This increase is recognized in 2012 as investment revenue in the statement of financial performance. The leasing of apartments, parking and other facilities in the Madrid Union Building is managed by a leasing agent responsible for collecting all rental income and paying for all expenditures incurred in the operation of the building. Leases are generally for periods of two years and are based on the form of lease approved by the Canton of Geneva. All leases are non-cancellable during the period of the lease. The managing agent receives 3.9 per cent of the gross rental income as compensation for its services. The value of non-cancellable leases at December 31, 2012 is as follows:

The income from rentals of 364 thousand Swiss francs and the operating expenditures of the building of 221 thousand Swiss francs are not recorded separately in WIPO’s accounts. Only the net amount of income received from the managing agent totaling 143,860 Swiss francs is recorded as rental income in the Statement of Financial Performance. The expenses netted from income by the managing agent do not include depreciation of the building. At the reporting date there are no contractual obligations to purchase, construct or
