As per IAS 36.97 – 36.99, if the cost related to renewal of contract is insignificant and renewal of contract is confirmed, then the amount of contract would be amortized on 6 six years. Whereas if the renewal of contract is not confirmed or the cost of renewal is significant then amount of contract would be amortized on 4 years.
