Transactions and balances
Under IFRS 10, an investor controls an investee when it is exposed or has rights to variable returns from its involvement with the investee and has the ability to affect those returns through its power over the investee. The Board of EY Europe has continued to review the arrangements between EY Europe and EYNL as required by IFRS 10, and now consider that EY Europe’s own exposure to variable returns from EYNL arising from those arrangements is not sufficient to meet the definition of control, despite having power over EYNL. The arrangements do give EY Europe significant influence over EYNL, so EYNL is therefore an associate of EY Europe LLP.

Entities under common control in 2014/2015 comprise entities controlled by EYNL’s then parent undertaking, EY Europe, and therefore represented related party relationships.

EY Europe is also able to exert significant influence over the EYGS group and the EYGI group meaning that in 2014/2015 they were associates of EYNL. Transactions and balances at the 2014/2015 year end with these related parties are stated below. As a member of the EY global network, EYNL has committed to provide services to and receive services from EYGS LLP.

The following table provides the total amounts for which transactions were entered into during the relevant financial years and the outstanding balances at 30 June 2016 and 30 June 2015.

Terms and conditions of transactions with related parties
Services provided to and received from related parties are generally settled at prices applicable under normal market circumstances. Outstanding balances at year-end are unsecured and interest-free and settlement occurs in cash. No guarantees were provided or received for any related-party receivable or payable. For the year ended 30 June 2016 EYNL did not record any impairment of related-party receivables (30 June 2015: nil). An assessment is undertaken each financial year by examining the financial position of the related party and the market in which it operates.
