Hi everybody

About the specific periodo to classification in short term and long term, always should be in relation December, or it´s possible to consider 12 months independent that month closed the statements?
According IFRS and USGAAP, is the same interpretation?
To all have a nice day

Short term is one year or less from the balance sheet date - this does not have to be December. Same for GAAP and IFRS.

I have certain it´s important to consider the operating cycle that company is envolved, because sometimes it´s possible to classify short term with more than 12 months
Depends the nature of company.

Sorry. Its the longer of one year or operating cycle. Generally operating cycle is less than 1 year but not always so.

According to IFRS you must look the paragraph 66 and 69 of IAS 1... They classify the assets and liabilities according to a current and non-current classification. In those paragraph the standard explain the characteristics of those elements.

Generally Financial Statements are prepared on the basis of 12 months/ 1 year. If the operating cycle is likely to be more than this then short term should be the period of the operating cycle and not 12 months.
