Haaga-Helia records current assets in accordance with Bookkeeping Act Section 5.2a and the IFRS 9 standard, so that investment assets are valued at fair value and the change of fair value is recorded in the income statement. The IFRS 9 accounting method was implemented in 2019. The positive effect of the accounting method on Haaga-Helia’s 2020 result was EUR 0.7 (2019: 2.0) million.

The result for the financial year was EUR 4.0 (5.5; 1.5) million, which was a clear improvement on what was budgeted (EUR 2.0 million). The result was achieved mainly through operational cost savings, since activities could not be organised as normal due to the Coronavirus epidemic. In addition, the result was increased by the state’s programme for improving education and competency, which granted funding for additional study positions in autumn 2020, for example.
The balance sheet total was EUR 66.6 (59.7; 50.3) million. The advances received include EUR 5.2 (2.9; 3.3) million of funding granted by the Ministry of Education and Culture for various projects. This funding continues to be available beyond 2020. The accruals and deferred incomes include, for example, the deferred holiday pay reservation of EUR 2.6 (2.4; 2.4) million.
