Accounting policies

Other income mainly relates to the profit or loss from the sale of group companies, the sale of assets held for sale and the sale or sale-and-leaseback of property, plant and equipment. Other income is recognised when the significant risks and rewards (economical ownership) are transferred, which will be the moment of the actual transfer of the property from PostNL to the buyer or when the contract is signed and all conditions for recognition are met.

In 2023, other income of €9 million (2022: €7 million) relates for €6 million (2022: €5 million) to the sale of real estate in the Netherlands.
