Other creditors are recognised initially at fair value and subsequently measured at amortised cost, using the effective interest method.
 
2 Debtors
 
  2016   2015
  £   £
Other debtors 5,328,000   5,328,000
 
  Other debtors all relate to amounts due from group undertaking and are non-interest bearing, have no fixed terms of repayment and their carrying value approximates to their fair value. Amounts due from group undertaking are not overdue for repayment and are not considered to be impaired. Amounts have been included in current assets in the balance sheet to reflect the expected repayment timing at the respective balance sheet date.

Given the counterparties of amounts due from group undertaking, management considers the company’s exposure to credit risk to be minimal. The maximum exposure to credit risk at the reporting date is the carrying amount of the asset shown above.

The company does not hold any collateral as security. The amounts due from group undertaking are denominated in sterling.
