Opinions on the financial statements and
internal control over financial reporting
We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of PagSeguro Digital Ltd. and its subsidiaries (the "Company") as of December 31, 2021 and 2020, and the related consolidated statements of income, other comprehensive income, changes in equity and cash flows for each of the two years in the period ended December 31, 2021, including the related notes (collectively referred to as the "consolidated financial statements"). We also have audited the Company's internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2021, based on criteria established in Internal Control - Integrated Framework (2013) issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO).
In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Company as of December 31, 2021 and 2020, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for each of the two years in the period ended December 31, 2021 in conformity with International Financial Reporting Standards as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board. Also in our opinion, the Company maintained, in all material respects, effective internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2021, based on criteria established in Internal Control - Integrated Framework (2013) issued by the COSO.
Basis for opinions
The Company's management is responsible for these consolidated financial statements, for maintaining effective internal control over financial reporting, and for its assessment of the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting, included in the accompanying Management's Annual Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting. Our responsibility is to express opinions on the Company's consolidated financial statements and on the Company's internal control over financial reporting based on our audits. We are a public accounting firm registered with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States) (PCAOB) and are required to be independent with respect to the Company in accordance with the U.S. federal securities laws and the applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and the PCAOB.
We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB.

Our audits of the consolidated financial statements included performing procedures to assess the risks of material misstatement of the consolidated financial statements, whether due to error or fraud, and performing procedures that respond to those risks. Such procedures included examining, on a test basis, evidence regarding the amounts and disclosures in the consolidated financial statements. Our audits also included evaluating the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the consolidated financial statements. Our audit of internal control over financial reporting included obtaining an understanding of internal control over financial reporting, assessing the risk that a material weakness exists, and testing and evaluating the design and operating effectiveness of internal control based on the assessed risk. Our audits also included performing such other procedures as we considered necessary in the circumstances. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinions.
Definition and limitations of internal
control over financial reporting
A company's internal control over financial reporting is a process designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. A company's internal control over financial reporting includes those policies and procedures that (i) pertain to the maintenance of records that, in reasonable detail, accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the company; (ii) provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that receipts and expenditures of the company are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management and directors of the company; and (iii) provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use, or disposition of the company's assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.
Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Also, projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.
Critical audit matters
The critical audit matters communicated below are matters arising from the current period audit of the consolidated financial statements that were communicated or required to be communicated to the audit committee and that (i) relate to accounts or disclosures that are material to the consolidated financial statements and (ii) involved our especially challenging, subjective, or complex judgments. The communication of critical audit matters does not alter in any way our opinion on the consolidated financial statements, taken as a whole, and we are not, by communicating the critical audit matters below, providing separate opinions on the critical audit matters or on the accounts or disclosures to which they relate.

Revenue recognition
As described in Note 2.15 to the consolidated financial statements, revenue comprises mainly fees charged for the electronic intermediation of the purchases made through the Company's electronic platform, and financial income mostly related to early payments made to merchants. Revenues from the intermediation transactions are recognized when the purchase transaction is approved by the financial institutions (card issuers) and the Company performance obligation related to the electronic validation of the transaction is completed, while financial income is recognized when the payment to the merchant is anticipated. The Company recorded during the year ended December 31, 2021 as "revenue from transaction activities and other services", substantially related to electronic intermediation fees, and "financial income", mostly related to early payments to merchants, the amounts of R$ 6,784,806 thousand and R$ 3,514,425 thousand, respectively, as described in Note 23 to the consolidated financial statements.
The principal considerations for our determination that performing procedures relating to revenue recognition is a critical audit matter are (i) the complex information technology environment used to process a high volume of transactions with individually low amounts, resulting in a significant volume of data being extracted from the systems of the Company which needs to be reconciled with general ledger before being used for the audit procedures purpose, and (ii) effort in performing audit procedures and in evaluating audit evidence considering the high volume of data.
Our approach to addressing the matter involved performing procedures and evaluating audit evidence in connection with forming our overall opinion on the consolidated financial statements. These procedures included testing the effectiveness of controls relating to revenue recognition process. The procedures also included, among others, (1) reconciliation of the data extracted from the systems with the general ledger, (2) performing audit procedures over the information technology general controls of the Company's systems, (3) test the mathematical accuracy of the revenue recognized as a percentage of the transactions selected, also testing if the percentages applied for these transactions were in accordance with the applicable agreements, (4) performing, on a sample basis, cash collection inspection for the transactions selected and (5) evaluating the sufficiency of the Company's disclosures.
Measurement of expected credit losses for loans and receivables from credit card holders
As described in Notes 3.4 and 8 to the consolidated financial statements, as at December 31, 2021, the expected credit losses on (i) loans and (ii) receivables from credit card holders was R$ 256,927 thousand and R$ 174,046 thousand, respectively. The balance of (i) loans and (ii) receivables from credit card holders as at December 31, 2021, was R$ 1,069,671 thousand and R$ 726,095 thousand, respectively. Management assesses the adequacy of the expected credit losses ('ECL') using projections of losses, based on the actual credit exposure and aging for the portfolios at the date and historical default rates measured under the collective models applied by the management that uses the following assumptions: (i) historical loss records; and (iii) estimated future cash flows.
6


pwc-logo.jpg
The principal considerations for our determination that performing procedures relating to the measurement of expected credit losses is a critical audit matter are (i) there was significant judgment and assumptions used by management in determining the expected credit losses and the collective model applied, considering the increase in the size of the portfolio, changes in the volume and severity of past due loans and credit card receivables during the current year; (ii) the complexity involved in the process of determining historical default rates of the portfolios; and (iii) effort in performing procedures and in evaluating audit evidence obtained related to the calculations of the percentage of provision by aging of portfolios.
Addressing the matter involved performing procedures and evaluating audit evidence in connection with forming our overall opinion on the consolidated financial statements. These procedures included understanding and testing the effectiveness of controls relating to management's measurement of expected credit losses, which included controls over the historical default rates and projections of portfolio future cash flows used in the determination of the percentage of the provision by aging of portfolios. These procedures also included, among others: (i) the involvement of professionals with knowledge in testing management's process for determining the expected credit losses, including evaluating the appropriateness of the methodology and collective models, testing the accuracy and completeness of data used, and evaluating the reasonableness of significant assumptions; (ii) the analysis of management's accounting policies in comparison with IFRS 9; and (iii) evaluating the sufficiency of the Company's disclosures.

Report of independent registered public accounting firm
To the Shareholders and Board of Directors of
PagSeguro Digital Ltd.
Opinion on the Financial Statements
We have audited the accompanying consolidated statements of income, comprehensive income, changes in equity and cash flows for the year ended December 31, 2019, and the related notes (collectively referred to as the “consolidated financial statements”) of PagSeguro Digital Ltd. (the Company). In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the results of its operations and its cash flows for the year ended December 31, 2019, in conformity with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB).
Basis for Opinion
These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Company’s financial statements based on our audit. We are a public accounting firm registered with the PCAOB and are required to be independent with respect to the Company in accordance with the U.S. federal securities laws and the applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and the PCAOB.
We conducted our audit in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement, whether due to error or fraud. Our audit included performing procedures to assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to error or fraud, and performing procedures that respond to those risks. Such procedures included examining, on a test basis, evidence regarding the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. Our audit also included evaluating the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.
Critical Audit Matter
The critical audit matter communicated below is a matter arising from the current period audit of the financial statements that was communicated or required to be communicated to the audit committee and that: (1) relates to accounts or disclosures that are material to the financial statements and (2) involved our especially challenging, subjective or complex judgments. The communication of the critical audit matter does not alter in any way our opinion on the consolidated financial statements, taken as a whole, and we are not, by communicating the critical audit matter below, providing a separate opinion on the critical audit matter or on the accounts or disclosures to which it relates.

Revenue recognition
Description of the matter As described in note 2.14 Revenue from transaction activities and other services comprise revenue from fees charged for intermediation in electronic payments and other services such as prepaid cards, while Financial income mostly comprises revenue derived from early payments to merchants. Revenues from transaction activities are recognized at the time the purchase is approved by the related financial institution while financial income is recognized at the time the merchant agrees to receive an early payment for sales in installments. For the year ended December 31, 2019, revenue from transaction activities and other services and financial income amounted to R$3,376 million and R$ 2,031 million, respectively, as disclosed in Note 22 to the consolidated financial statements.

Auditing the Company’s revenue from transaction activities and financial income is complex as such activities are all processed through a complex information technology environment, with a high volume of transactions and for individually low amounts. This results in a significant volume of data required to be extracted from the Company’s system for purposes of auditing and reconciling the general ledger and related supporting documentation. Also, the identification and evaluation of terms and conditions in multiple contractual arrangements required incremental audit effort to determine the distinct performance obligations and the timing of revenue recognition.
How we addressed the matter in our audit We obtained an understanding, evaluated the design and tested the operating effectiveness of internal controls over the Company’s accounting for revenue recognition. For example, we have involved our Information Technology professionals to assist us in testing the relevant controls over the information systems that are important to the initiation, recording and billing of revenue transactions.

To test the recognition of revenue by the Company our audit procedures included, among others, assessing for a sample of contracts the methodology applied for revenue recognition; testing the mathematical accuracy of the Company’s calculation of the amount of revenue to be recognized as a percentage of the total transaction value; assessing whether the percentages applied were in accordance with to the contractual agreement with the customer, evaluating whether revenue was recorded in the proper period and testing subsequent collection of individual transactions. In addition, we assessed the adequacy of the related disclosures in the consolidated financial statements.

1.1     COVID-19
The Company has observed that the main impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in total purchase volume (TPV) has occurred between March and June 2020. In the third and fourth quarter of 2020, most of the cities in Brazil started a reopening process, with a gradual recovery of important commercial activities such as shopping malls, general retail, restaurants, and bars, among other non-essential and in-store businesses.
During the year ended December 31, 2021, the Company observed that, in the first three months, there was an increase in the number of people infected by COVID-19 and consequently the return of partial shutdowns and social isolation in several cities and states of the country. In the second quarter of 2021, most of the cities in Brazil accelerated the vaccination of the population, and consequently, the Company saw a graduated reopening process, with extension of opening hours of commercial activities. In the third quarter of 2021, the Company observed the returning of social events with public, consequently the growth of TPV. At the end of the fourth quarter, Brazil began to see an increase in contagions mainly related to Omicron without impact in PagSeguro business.

1.General information (continued)
The Company has a significant variable cost structure mainly related to TPV, such as processing, interchange, card scheme fees and chargebacks. Marketing and sales expenses are also variable and depends on the Company’s strategy to leverage new products and services such as PagBank. The Company is also still accompanying the evolution of the Brazilian economy and reassessing, when necessary, the provisions for loss allowance for expected credit losses.
The Company has a solid position in terms of cash, liquidity and working capital levels and in the years ended December 31, 2021 and 2020 has not faced impairment of assets due to COVID-19.
1.2     Additional information
Wirecard Brazil Instituição de Pagamento S.A. (“MOIP”) is a subsidiary that PagSeguro acquired in October 2020, which represented less than 3% of the Group’s consolidated assets as of December 31, 2021 and less than 2% and 1% of the consolidated revenue and net income for the year ended December 31, 2021. MOIP was involved in a cyberattack between September 25 and September 29, 2021 (the “Incident”). The hackers demanded that the Company make a specified payment to prevent the public disclosure or sale of the targeted hacked data that was compromised in the Incident, which included personal profile information of MOIP customers. At the time of the Incident, MOIP had a distinct and separate IT server and operating environment from the rest of PagSeguro’s IT platform and systems, and therefore none of PagSeguro’s databases, customer information or systems were subject to the Incident, or formed part of the compromised data, beyond those independently within the MOIP IT environment. PagSeguro promptly followed the requirements of applicable Brazilian law, including the filing of a formal report to the Brazilian National Authority for Data Protection (Autoridade Nacional de Proteção de Dados) and Brazilian Central Bank on October 7, 2021.
After completion of the assessment, without financial impacts, PagSeguro communicated to the ANPD on January 5, 2022 through a complementary form to the one initially reported on October. During the review of the Incident, PagSeguro not identified evidence of unauthorized access to sensitive information, such as passwords or credit card details. PagSeguro confirms that the Incident has not had a material adverse financial impact on the company or on its customers, and PagSeguro’s IT systems (including MOIP’s IT environment) are operating normally, with heightened security measures undertaken in response to the Incident

2.Presentation and preparation of the consolidated financial statements and significant accounting policies
2.1.    Basis of preparation of the consolidated financial statements
These consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS"), as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board ("IASB") and disclose all (and only) the applicable significant information related to the financial statements, which is consistent with the information utilized by management in the performance of its duties. The consolidated financial statements are presented in thousands of Brazilian reais, unless otherwise indicated, which is the functional currency of PagSeguro Group.
The consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a historical cost basis, except for certain financial assets and liabilities measured at fair value.
The preparation of financial statements requires the use of certain critical accounting estimates. It also requires management to exercise its judgment in the process of applying PagSeguro Group's accounting policies. The areas involving a higher degree of judgment or complexity, or areas where assumptions and estimates are significant to the financial statements, are disclosed in Note 3.
These consolidated financial statements as of December 31, 2021 and 2020 and for the three years ended December 2021, were authorized for issuance by PagSeguro Digital's Board of Directors on March 15, 2022.
2.2.    Basis of consolidation
PagSeguro Group consolidates all entities over which it has control. Control is achieved when PagSeguro Group is exposed or has rights to variable returns with its involvement with the investee and can affect those returns through its power over the investee's relevant activities.
Subsidiaries are all entities over which PagSeguro Digital has control. Subsidiaries are fully consolidated from the date PagSeguro Group obtains control of the subsidiary and ceases when PagSeguro Group loses control of the subsidiary. The subsidiaries included in the consolidation are described in Note 4.
A change in the ownership interest of a subsidiary, without a loss of control, is accounted for as an equity transaction.

2.3.    Foreign currencies
i)Transactions and balances
Foreign currency transactions are translated into the functional currency using the exchange rates prevailing at the dates of the transactions. Monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies are translated at the functional currency sport rates of exchange at the reporting date. Foreign exchange gains and losses resulting from the settlement of these transactions and from the translation at year-end exchange rates of monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies are recognized in the statement of income.
Non-monetary items that are measured in terms of historical cost in a foreign currency are translated using the exchange rates at the dates of the initial transactions.
ii)Group companies
On consolidation, the assets and liabilities of foreign operations are translated into Reais at the rate of exchange prevailing at the reporting date and their statements of profit or loss are translated at exchange rates prevailing at the dates of the transactions.
The exchange differences arising on translation for consolidation are recognized in OCI. On disposal of a foreign operation, the component of OCI relating to that particular foreign operation is reclassified to profit or loss.
2.4.    Cash and cash equivalents
Cash and cash equivalents are held for the purpose of meeting short-term cash needs and not for investment or any other purposes. PagSeguro Group classifies as cash equivalents a financial investment that can be immediately converted into a known amount of cash and is subject to immaterial risk of change in value. PagSeguro Group classifies financial instruments with original maturities of three months or less as cash equivalents.

2.    Presentation and preparation of the consolidated financial statements and significant accounting policies (Continued)
2.5.    Financial instruments - initial recognition and subsequent measurement
i)Financial assets
Initial recognition and measurement
Financial assets are classified, at initial recognition and subsequently measured at amortized cost, fair value through other comprehensive income ("OCI"), and fair value through profit or loss. The classification depends on the financial asset's contractual cash flow characteristics and the Group's business model for managing them. The Group initially measures a financial asset at its fair value plus, in the case of a financial asset not at fair value through profit or loss, transaction costs.
For a financial asset to be classified and measured at amortized cost or fair value through OCI, it needs to give rise to cash flows that are ‘solely payments of principal and interest ("SPPI") on the principal amount outstanding. This assessment is referred to as the SPPI test and is performed at an instrument level. Financial assets with cash flows that are not SPPI are classified and measured at fair value through profit or loss, irrespective of the business model.
The Group's business model for managing financial assets refers to how it manages its financial assets to generate cash flows. The business model determines whether cash flows will result from collecting contractual cash flows, selling the financial assets, or both. Financial assets classified and measured at amortized cost are held within a business model with the objective to hold financial assets to collect contractual cash flows while financial assets classified and measured at fair value through OCI are held within a business model with the objective of both holding to collect contractual cash flows and selling (such as the financial investment disclosed on Note 7).
Financial assets include cash and cash equivalents, financial investments, accounts receivable, judicial deposits and other receivables.
Subsequent measurement
The subsequent measurement of financial assets depends on their classification, which may be (i) financial assets at amortized cost; (ii) financial assets at fair value through OCI with recycling of cumulative gains and losses (debt instruments); (iii) financial assets designated at fair value through OCI with no recycling of cumulative gains and losses upon derecognition (equity instruments); and (iv) financial assets at fair value through profit or loss.

(All amounts in thousands of reais unless otherwise stated)
Financial assets at amortized cost
Financial assets at amortized cost relating to debt instruments are subsequently measured using the effective interest method and are subject to impairment. Financial assets at amortized cost relating to equity instruments are measured at cost of acquisition. Gains and losses are recognized in profit or loss when the asset is derecognized, modified, or impaired.
The Group's financial assets at amortized cost includes cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, judicial deposits, investments, and other receivables.
Financial assets at fair value through profit or loss
Financial assets at fair value through profit or loss are presented at fair value in the balance sheet, with the corresponding gains or losses recognized in the statement of income. The Group does not hold any financial asset within this category.
Financial assets at fair value through OCI
For debt instruments at fair value through OCI, interest income, foreign exchange revaluation and impairment losses or reversals are recognized in the statement of profit or loss and computed in the same manner as for financial assets measured at amortized cost. The remaining fair value changes are recognized in OCI. Upon derecognition, the cumulative fair value change recognized in OCI is recycled to profit or loss.
The Group's debt instruments at fair value through OCI includes investments in Brazilian Treasury Bonds, as disclosed in Note 7.
Financial assets designated at fair value through OCI (equity instruments)
Upon initial recognition, the Group can elect to classify irrevocably its equity investments as equity instruments designated at fair value through OCI when they meet the definition of equity under IAS 32 Financial Instruments: Presentation and are not held for trading. The classification is determined on an instrument-by-instrument basis. Gains and losses on these financial assets are never recycled to profit or loss. The Group does not hold any financial asset within this category.

2.    Presentation and preparation of the consolidated financial statements and significant accounting policies (Continued)
Derecognition
A financial asset or, where applicable, a part of a financial asset or part of a group of similar financial assets, is derecognized when:
The rights to receive cash flows from the asset expire; or
PagSeguro Group transfers its rights to receive cash flows from the asset or assumes an obligation to pay the received cash flows in full to a third party under a "pass-through" arrangement; and (a) transfers virtually all the risks and benefits of the asset, or (b) neither transfers nor retains virtually all the risks and benefits of the asset, but transfers control of the asset.
When PagSeguro Group has transferred its rights to receive cash flows from an asset and has not transferred or retained substantially all the risks and benefits of the asset, this asset is recognized to the extent of PagSeguro Group's continuing involvement in the asset. In such case, PagSeguro Group also recognizes an associated liability.
The transferred asset and the associated liability are measured on a basis that reflects the rights and obligations that PagSeguro Group has retained.
Continuing involvement that takes the form of a guarantee over the transferred asset is measured at the lower of the original carrying amount of the asset and the maximum amount of the consideration that PagSeguro Group may be required to repay.
ii)Impairment of financial assets
PagSeguro Group assesses, at the balance sheet date, if there is objective evidence that a financial asset or a group of financial assets is impaired. The Group recognizes an allowance for expected credit losses ("ECLs") for all debt instruments not held at fair value through profit or loss. ECLs are based on the difference between the contractual cash flows due in accordance with the contract and all the cash flows that the Group expects to receive, discounted at an approximation of the original effective interest rate. The expected cash flows will include cash flows from the sale of collateral held or other credit enhancements that are integral to the contractual terms.

2.    Presentation and preparation of the consolidated financial statements and significant accounting policies (Continued)
ECLs are recognized in two stages. For credit exposures for which there has not been a significant increase in credit risk since initial recognition, ECLs are provided for credit losses that result from default events that are possible within the next 12-months (a 12-month ECL). For those credit exposures for which there has been a significant increase in credit risk since initial recognition, a loss allowance is required for credit losses expected over the remaining life of the exposure, irrespective of the timing of the default (a lifetime ECL).
The Group applies a credit risk policy taking into consideration the possibility of default by: (a) the card issuers, which have the obligation of transferring to the credit and debit card labels the fees charged for the transactions carried out by their card holders, and/or (b) the acquirers, which are used by the PagSeguro Group to approve transactions with the issuers. To mitigate this risk, the PagSeguro Group has established a Credit and Liquidity Risk Committee, whose responsibility is to assess the level of risk of each of the card issuers served by PagSeguro Group, as discussed in Note 26.
For debt instruments at fair value through OCI, the Group applies the low credit risk simplification. At every reporting date, the Group evaluates whether the debt instrument is considered to have low credit risk using all reasonable and supportable information that is available without undue cost or effort. In making that evaluation, the Group reassesses the internal credit rating of the debt instrument. The Group's debt instruments at fair value through OCI comprise solely investments in Brazilian Treasury Bonds, considered to be low credit risk investments.
iii)Financial liabilities
Initial recognition and measurement
Financial liabilities are classified at initial recognition, as financial liabilities at fair value through profit or loss, or amortized cost. PagSeguro Group determines the classification of its financial liabilities at initial recognition.
Financial liabilities include payables to third parties, payables to related parties, trade payables and other payables.
Subsequent measurement
The subsequent measurement of financial liabilities depends on their classification, which may be as follows:

2.    Presentation and preparation of the consolidated financial statements and significant accounting policies (Continued)
Financial liabilities at fair value through profit or loss
Financial liabilities at fair value through profit or loss include held-for-trading financial liabilities and financial liabilities designated at fair value through profit or loss at initial recognition.
Financial liabilities are classified as held-for-trading if acquired for sale in the short term. This category includes derivative financial instruments which do not meet the hedge accounting criteria defined by IFRS 9 - Financial Instruments.
Gains and losses on held-for-trading liabilities are recognized in the statement of income.
Financial liabilities at amortized cost
After initial recognition, interest-bearing borrowings are subsequently measured at amortized cost, using the effective interest rate method, and are recognized in the statement of income.
Amortized cost is calculated by considering any discount or premium on acquisition and fees or costs that are an integral part of the effective interest rate. The effective interest rate amortization is included in "Financial expenses" in the statement of income.
Derecognition
A financial liability is derecognized when the obligation is discharged, canceled, or expires. When an existing financial liability is replaced by another from the same lender on substantially different terms, or the terms of an existing liability are substantially modified, such an exchange or modification is treated as a derecognition of the original liability and recognition of a new liability, and the difference in the respective carrying amounts is recognized in the statement of income.
iv)Financial instruments - offsetting
Financial assets and liabilities are presented net in the balance sheet if, and only if, there is an existing and enforceable legal right to offset the amounts recognized and an intention to offset or to realize the asset and settle the liability simultaneously.

2.    Presentation and preparation of the consolidated financial statements and significant accounting policies (Continued)
v)Fair value of financial instruments
The fair value of financial instruments actively traded in organized markets is determined based on quoted market prices at the balance sheet date, without a deduction of transaction costs.
The fair value of financial instruments that are not traded in an active market is determined by using valuation techniques. These techniques include the use of recent arm's length transactions, reference to other similar instruments, discounted cash flow analysis or other valuation methods.
vi)Current versus non-current classification
The PagSeguro Group presents financial assets and liabilities in the balance sheet based on current and non-current classification. An asset is current when it is: (i) expected to be realized or intended to be sold or consumed in the normal operating cycle; (ii) held primarily for the purpose of trading; (iii) expected to be realized within twelve months after the reporting period; or (iv) cash or cash equivalent unless restricted from being exchanged or used to settle a liability for at least twelve months after the reporting period. All other assets are classified as non-current.
A liability is current when: (i) it is expected to be settled in the normal operating cycle; (ii) it is held primarily for the purpose of trading; (iii) it is due to be settled within twelve months after the reporting period; or (iv) there is no unconditional right to defer the settlement of the liability for at least twelve months after the reporting period.
vii)Derivative Financial Instruments
Derivatives are initially recognized at fair value on the date a derivative contract is entered, and they are subsequently remeasured to their fair value at the end of each reporting period. The accounting for subsequent changes in fair value depends on whether the derivative is designated as a hedging instrument and, if so, the nature of the item being hedged.
At inception of the hedge relationship, the group documents the economic relationship between hedging instruments and hedged items, including whether changes in the cash flows of the hedging instruments are expected to offset changes in the cash flows of hedged items.

2.    Presentation and preparation of the consolidated financial statements and significant accounting policies (Continued)
If the hedge no longer meets the criteria for hedge accounting, the adjustment to the carrying amount of a hedged item for which the effective interest method is used is amortized to profit or loss over the remaining period until maturity, using a recalculated effective interest rate.
2.6.    Accounts receivable
Accounts receivable include mainly the receivables from credit/debit card issuers and acquirers originated from transactions through PagSeguro Group payment platform and credit operations. Accounts receivables are initially recorded at the fair value net of the expected credit losses. If the term is equivalent to one year or less, accounts receivable is classified as current assets, if not, as non-current assets.
Based on PagSeguro Brazil's risk assessment, the expected credit loss is mainly comprised of transactions approved by large financial institutions that have a low overall risk level based on ratings received from major credit rating agencies. Additionally, these financial institutions are the legal obligors to the accounts receivable (note 26).
For debit and credit cards receivables from the clients, the credit risk is low based on historical credit losses and is updated considering other external factors, such as credit ratings assigned by FITCH, S&P and Moody's.
PagSeguro Group incurs financial expenses when an election to receive early payment of accounts receivable from financial institutions is made. This financial expense is recognized at the time the financial institution agrees to liquidate the accounts receivable due in installments on a prepaid basis, and it is recorded as Financial expenses in the statement of income.
2.7.    Inventories
Inventories consist of POS devices. Inventories are stated at historical cost. The Company used the average cost method to account for inventories' cost and corresponding provision for losses is recognized when sale value is higher than its purchase cost.

2.8.    Property and equipment
Property and equipment is stated at historical cost, net of accumulated depreciation and accumulated impairment losses, if any. Historical cost includes expenditures that are directly attributable to the acquisition of the items and may also include finance costs related to the acquisition of qualifying assets.
Subsequent costs are included in the asset's carrying amount or recognized as a separate asset, as appropriate, only when it is probable that future economic benefits associated with these costs will flow to PagSeguro Group and that such benefits can be reliably measured.
The carrying amount of replaced items or parts is derecognized. All other repairs and maintenance expenses are charged to the statement of income during the year in which they are incurred.
The assets' residual values and useful lives are reviewed at the end of each reporting period, and adjusted on a prospective basis, if appropriate. Depreciation is calculated using the straight-line method, based on the estimated useful lives, as shown below:
Data processing equipment (includes the POS devices)
2.5 to 5 years
Building leasings
5 to 10 years
Machinery and equipment
5 to 10 years
Other assets
5 to 10 years
During 2021, the Company reviewed the estimated useful lives of these assets and no significant change was identified.
An item of property and equipment is derecognized upon disposal or when future economic benefits are expected from its use or disposal. Any gain or loss on disposal (calculated as the difference between the net disposal proceeds with the carrying amount of the asset) is recognized within "Other (expenses) income, net" in the statement of income when an asset is derecognized.
An asset's carrying amount is immediately written down to its recoverable amount when the asset's carrying amount is greater than its estimated recoverable amount. See note 2.10.

2.9.    Intangible assets
Software licenses are recorded at historical cost. Software licenses are amortized on the straight-line basis over the estimated useful life of the software which is approximately five years.
Costs associated with maintaining computer software programs are recognized as an expense as incurred. Development costs that are directly attributable to the design and testing of identifiable and unique software products controlled by PagSeguro Group are recognized as intangible assets.
Directly attributable costs relating to internal development of software are capitalized as part of the software product, which mainly includes costs incurred with employees and third-party contracted services.
Other development expenditures that do not meet the capitalization criteria are expensed as incurred. Development costs previously recorded as an expense are not recognized as an asset in a subsequent period and are included in the income statement.
Capitalized computer software development costs are amortized over their estimated useful lives which are reviewed at the end of each reporting period, and adjusted on a prospective basis, if appropriate. In 2019 the useful life of software's developed was changed from three years to five years from the date that technological feasibility is met. This change was based on the following assumptions: i) business strategy, ii) history of use of goods/technology, iii) guarantee of suppliers, iv) technical quality of assets and v) preventive maintenance.
2.10.    Impairment of non-financial assets
The PagSeguro Group assesses at each reporting date, whether there is an indication that an asset may be impaired. If any indication exists, or when annual impairment testing for an asset is required, the PagSeguro Group estimates the asset's recoverable amount. An asset's recoverable amount is the higher of an asset's or CGU's fair value less costs of disposal and its value in use. The recoverable amount is determined for an individual asset, unless the asset does not generate cash inflows that are largely independent of those from other assets or groups of assets. When the carrying amount of an asset or CGU exceeds its recoverable amount, the asset is considered impaired and is written down to its recoverable amount.

2.    Presentation and preparation of the consolidated financial statements and significant accounting policies (Continued)
In assessing value in use, the estimated future cash flows are discounted to their present value using a pos-tax discount rate that reflects current market assessments of the time value of money and the risks specific to the asset. In determining fair value less costs of disposal, recent market transactions are considered. If no such transactions can be identified, an appropriate valuation model is used.
The Group bases its impairment calculation on most recent budgets and forecast calculations. These budgets and forecast calculations generally cover a period of five years. A long-term growth rate is calculated and applied to project future cash flows after the fifth year.
For assets excluding goodwill, an assessment is made at each reporting date to determine whether there is an indication that previously recognized impairment losses no longer exist or have decreased. If such indication exists, the Group estimates the asset's or CGU's recoverable amount. Goodwill is tested for impairment annually and when circumstances indicate that the carrying value may be impaired. Goodwill is impaired when the recoverable amount of the CGU is less than it is carrying amount, an impairment loss is recognized.
2.11.    Payables to third parties
Payables to third parties refer to funds payable and amounts due to merchants that use PagSeguro Brazil platform. PagSeguro Group recognizes a liability for the transaction amount, net of the transaction cost that will be made available to the merchant on its PagSeguro account.
The payables to third parties from installment transactions are estimated based on the fair value, in accordance with the terms of these transactions.
2.12. Deposits
The PagSeguro Group has sell-buy back transactions (sales of financial assets with future repurchase agreement). Such repurchase agreements are recorded in term deposits accounts when refers to certificate deposits operations and interbank deposits accounts for financial letter issuance purposes. The difference between sale price and repurchase price is treated as interest and it is recognized during the term of the agreement by effective interest rate method.

2.13. Borrowings
Borrowings are initially recognized at fair value less any directly attributable transaction costs. After initial recognition, these financial liabilities are measured at amortized cost using the effective interest method, except for the embedded derivative, which is measured at fair value through profit or loss.
Gains and losses are recognized in the consolidated income statements when the liabilities are derecognized as well as through the effective interest method amortization process. Amortized cost is calculated by considering any discount or premium on acquisition and fees or costs that are an integral part of the effective interest method. The effective interest method amortization is included in interest expense in the consolidated income statements.
2.14. Provisions
Provisions are recognized when PagSeguro Group has a present legal or constructive obligation as a result of past events, it is probable that an outflow of resources will be required to settle the obligation and the amount can be reliably estimated. When PagSeguro Group expects the value of a provision to be reimbursed, in whole or in part (for example, due to an insurance contract) the reimbursement is recognized as a separate asset, but only when the reimbursement is virtually certain. Expenses associated with any provisions are presented in the statement of income, net of any reimbursements. PagSeguro Group is a party to legal and administrative proceedings.
Provisions are established for all contingencies related to lawsuits for which it is probable that an outflow of funds will be necessary to settle the contingency/obligation and a reasonable estimate can be made. The assessment of the likelihood of loss includes the evaluation of available evidence, the hierarchy of laws, available case law, recent court decisions and their importance in the legal system, as well as the opinion of outside legal counsel. The provisions are reviewed and adjusted to reflect changes in circumstances.
2.15. Revenue and income
Revenue from contract with customers is recognized as control of the goods or services are transferred to the customer at an amount that reflects the consideration to which the Group expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services in the ordinary course of PagSeguro Group's activities. Revenue is presented net of sales and excise taxes and returns.

2.    Presentation and preparation of the consolidated financial statements and significant accounting policies (Continued)
PagSeguro Group's revenue from contract with customers substantially comprises:
Revenue from transaction activities and other services: Revenue from fees charged for intermediation of electronic payments, and other services such as prepaid cards, which are recognized at the time the purchase is approved by the financial institution. Revenues from fees charged for intermediation of electronic payments are recognized on a gross basis and related transaction costs are recognized as Cost of sales and services, since PagSeguro Group is the principal in the intermediation transaction. PagSeguro Group has primary responsibility for providing the services to customers and directly sets the prices for such services, independently from the related transaction costs agreed between PagSeguro Group and the card schemes or card issuers.
Revenue from sales (recognized until August 30, 2019): Revenue from sales of POS devices and similar items, which is recognized when control of a good is transferred to the customers, i.e., on delivery of the equipment. Under Brazilian consumer law, clients have seven days after ordering Point of Sale equipment ("POS devices") to cancel the purchase. Returns of devices are accounted for as deductions from revenue from sales at the time the equipment is returned. Revenue is recognized at the point in time when control of the asset is transferred to the customer, generally on delivery of the equipment at the customer's location.
Revenue from membership fee: Beginning on September 1st, 2019, the Company charges a non-refundable membership fee at the inception of the contract with customers that provides access to the PagSeguro Group ecosystem. Revenue related to the non-refundable membership fee has been deferred according to the PagSeguro clients' internal metrics and recognized in deferred revenues.
Income is mostly comprised of financial income recognized because of the discount rate charged on the early payments of payables to third parties (merchants). The income is recognized at the time the merchant agrees to receive a sale in installments on an early payment basis, and it is recorded as financial income in the statement of income.
2.16. Current and deferred income tax and social contribution
Current income tax and social contribution
Tax assets and liabilities for the current year are calculated based on the expected recoverable amount or the amount payable to the tax authorities. The tax rates and tax laws used to calculate the amount are those enacted or substantively enacted at the balance sheet date in the countries where PagSeguro Group operates and generates taxable income.

2.    Presentation and preparation of the consolidated financial statements and significant accounting policies (Continued)
Current income tax and social contribution related to items recognized directly in equity are recognized in equity. PagSeguro Group periodically evaluates the tax positions involving interpretation of tax regulations and establishes provisions when appropriate.
Deferred taxes
Deferred taxes arise from temporary differences between the tax bases of assets and liabilities and their carrying amounts at the balance sheet date.
Deferred tax liabilities are recognized for all temporary taxable differences, except in the following situations:
When the deferred tax liability arises from the initial recognition of an asset or liability in a transaction other than a business combination that, at the time of the transaction, affects neither accounting nor taxable profit; and
On temporary tax differences related to investments in subsidiaries when the timing of the reversal of the temporary differences can be controlled and it is probable that the temporary differences will not reverse in the foreseeable future.
Deferred tax assets are recognized on all deductible temporary differences and tax loss carryforwards, to the extent that it is probable that taxable profit will be available against which they can be offset, except:
When the deferred tax asset related to the deductible temporary difference arises from the initial recognition of an asset or liability in a transaction other than a business combination that, at the time of the transaction, affects neither accounting nor taxable profit or loss; and
On the deductible temporary differences associated with investments in subsidiaries. Deferred tax assets are recognized only to the extent that it is probable that the temporary differences will reverse in the foreseeable future and that taxable profit will be available against which the temporary differences can be utilized.
The carrying amount of deferred tax assets is reviewed at each reporting date and a deferred tax asset is recognized to the extent that it is probable that sufficient taxable profit will be available to allow all or part of the deferred tax assets to be utilized. Unrecognized deferred tax assets are re-assessed at each reporting date and are recognized to the extent that it has become probable that future taxable profits will be available to allow their utilization.

Based on the local law of the Cayman Islands (specifically, the Companies Law of 1960), there is no taxation on the income earned by companies organized in this jurisdiction. Therefore, PagSeguro Digital has no income tax impacts in the Cayman Islands.
For the subsidiaries of PagSeguro Digital, deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using the prevailing tax rates in the year in which the assets will be realized, and the liabilities will be settled. The currently defined tax rates of 25% for income tax and 9% for social contribution are used to calculate deferred taxes, except for BancoSeguro, which currently defined tax rates of 25% for income tax and 25% for social contribution, according to the law 14.183.
Deferred tax assets and liabilities are presented on a net basis when there is legally or contractually enforceable right to offset the tax asset against the tax liability, and the deferred taxes are related to the same taxable entity and subject to the same tax authority.
2.17. Employee benefits - Profit sharing
PagSeguro Group recognizes a liability and an expense for profit sharing subject to achievement of operational targets and performance established and approved at the beginning of each fiscal year. PagSeguro Group recognizes a provision when contractually obliged or when there is a past practice that has created a constructive obligation.
2.18. Business combination and goodwill
PagSeguro Group accounts for business combinations using the acquisition method. The cost of an acquisition is measured as the sum of the consideration transferred, based on its fair value on the acquisition date. Costs directly attributable to the acquisition are expensed as incurred. The assets acquired, and liabilities assumed are measured at fair value, classified and allocated according to the contractual terms, economic circumstances, and relevant conditions on the acquisition date. PagSeguro Group recognizes any non-controlling interest in the acquired business either at fair value or at the non-controlling interest's proportionate share of the fair value of the acquired businesses' identifiable net assets. Non-controlling interests are determined upon each acquisition. Acquisition-related costs are accounted for in the statement of income as incurred.
Goodwill is measured as the excess of the consideration transferred over the fair value of net assets acquired. If the consideration transferred is smaller than the fair value of net assets acquired, the difference is recognized as a gain on bargain purchase in the statement of income. After initial recognition, goodwill is measured at cost less any accumulated impairment losses.

Any contingent consideration to be transferred by the acquirer will be recognized at fair value at the acquisition date. Contingent consideration classified as equity is not remeasured and its subsequent settlement is accounted for within equity. Contingent consideration classified as an asset or liability that is a financial instrument and within the scope of IFRS 9 Financial Instruments, is measured at fair value with the changes in fair value recognized in the statement of profit or loss in accordance with IFRS 9.
2.19. Treasury shares
Own equity instruments that are reacquired (treasury shares) are recognized at cost and deducted from equity. No gain or loss is recognized in profit or loss on the purchase, sale, issue, or cancellation of the PagSeguro Group's own equity instruments. Any difference between the carrying amount and the consideration, if reissued, is recognized in equity.
2.20. Share-based payments (LTIP and LTIP Goals)
LTIP-Goals was established by PagSeguro Brazil on December 18, 2018, as approved by the Company’s board of directors, and ratified on August 7, 2019, February 21, 2020 and January 19, 2021. Beneficiaries under the LTIP-Goals are selected by the LTIP-Goals Committee, which consists of the Company’s Chairman of the board of directors and two officers of UOL. Beneficiaries under the LTIP-Goals are granted awards, which may be payable in cash, Class A common shares or a combination of the two, at the discretion of the LTIP-Goals Committee based on the goals established in the Company’s corporate results-sharing plan for any given year. If any portion of an award was payable in Class A common shares, the relevant value in Brazilian reais was converted into Class A common shares on the last business day of January for awards related to 2019 and 2020. For awards related to 2021 and beyond, the LTIP-Goals Committee will set a determination date that falls no later than on the last business day of March following the year for which such amount was awarded. Under the LTIP-Goals plan, the relevant payment shall be made and/or Class A common shares delivered within 10 business days of that determination date.

2.    Presentation and preparation of the consolidated financial statements and significant accounting policies (Continued)
Before the LTIP-Goals was created, members of management participated in the LTIP, which was established by UOL for its group companies on July 29, 2015 and was adopted by PagSeguro Digital Ltd. Beneficiaries under the LTIP were selected by UOL’s LTIP Committee, which consists of the Company’s chairman and two officers of UOL. Since the establishment of LTIP-Goals on December 18, 2018, no new rights have been, nor will be, granted under the LTIP. Beneficiaries under the LTIP were granted rights in the form of notional cash amounts without cash consideration. In this plan, employees (including senior executives) of the UOL group companies receive remuneration in the form of share-based payments, whereby employees render services as consideration for equity instruments (equity-settled transactions). The cost of equity-settled transactions is determined by the fair value at the date when the grant is made. These rights vest in five equal annual installments starting one year after the beneficiary’s grant date.
That cost is recognized in personnel expenses, together with a corresponding increase in equity over the period in which the service is fulfilled (the vesting period). The cumulative expense recognized for equity-settled transactions at each reporting date until the vesting date reflects the extent to which the vesting period has expired and the Group's best estimate of the number of equity instruments that will ultimately vest. The expense in the statement of profit or loss represents the movement in cumulative expense recognized as at the beginning and end of the year. No expense is recognized for awards that do not ultimately vest because service conditions have not been met.
2.21. New accounting standards adopted in 2021
The accounting policies adopted in the preparation of the Consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2021 are consistent with those adopted for the year ended December 31, 2020, except for the changes required by the pronouncements, interpretations and standards which became effective on January 1, 2021, as described below.
IFRS 17 Insurance Contracts
In May 2017, the IASB issued IFRS 17 Insurance Contracts (IFRS 17), a comprehensive new accounting standard for insurance contracts covering recognition and measurement, presentation, and disclosure, which became effective on January 1, 2021. IFRS 17 replace IFRS 4 Insurance Contracts (IFRS 4) that was issued in 2005. IFRS 17 applies to all types of insurance contracts (i.e., life, non-life, direct insurance, and re-insurance), regardless of the type of entities that issue them, as well as to certain guarantees and financial instruments with discretionary participation features. The Group analyzed their contracts and concluded that is not exposed to insurance contracts.

2.22. New accounting standards not yet effective
The new and amended standards and interpretations that are issued, but not yet effective, up to the date of issuance of the consolidated financial statements are disclosed below. The Company intends to adopt these new and amended standards and interpretations, if applicable, when they become effective.
Amendment to IAS 16 "Property, plant and equipment": In May 2020, the IASB issued an amendment prohibiting an entity from deducting from the cost of property, plant and equipment amounts received from the sale of items produced while the asset is being prepared for its intended use. Such revenues and related costs must be recognized in profit or loss for the year. The effective date of application of this change is January 1, 2022. The group does not expect the new amendment to materially impact its results of operations.
Amendment to IAS 37 "Provision, Contingent Liabilities and Contingent Assets": In May 2020, the IASB issued this amendment to clarify that, for purposes of assessing whether a contract is onerous, the cost of performing the contract includes the incremental costs of performing of this contract and an allocation of other costs that relate directly to the performance of this contract. The effective date of application of this change is January 1, 2022. The group does not expect the new amendment to materially impact its results of operations.
Annual Improvements - 2018-2020 Cycle: In May 2020, the IASB issued the following changes as part of the annual improvement process, effective January 1, 2022:
(i) IFRS 9 - "Financial Instruments" - clarifies which rates must be included in the 10% test for the write-off of financial liabilities.
(ii) IFRS 16 - "Leases" - amendment of example 13 in order to exclude the example of lessor payments related to improvements in the leased property.
(iii) IFRS 1 "First-time Adoption of International Financial Reporting Standards" - simplifies the application of said standard by a subsidiary that adopts IFRS for the first time after its parent company, in relation to the measurement of the accumulated amount of exchange rate variations.
(iv) IAS 41 - "Biological Assets" - removal of the requirement to exclude cash flows from taxation when measuring the fair value of biological assets and agricultural products, thus aligning the fair value measurement requirements in IAS 41 with those of other IFRS standards.

2.    Presentation and preparation of the consolidated financial statements and significant accounting policies (Continued)
The group does not expect the new improvements to materially impact its results of operations.
Amendment to IAS 1 "Presentation of Financial Statements": issued in May 2020, with the objective of clarifying that liabilities are classified as current or non-current, depending on the rights that exist at the end of the period. The classification is not affected by the entity's expectations or events after the reporting date (eg, receipt of a waiver or breach of covenant). The amendments also clarify what "settlement" of a liability refers to under IAS 1. The amendments to IAS 1 are effective as of January 1, 2023. The group does not expect the new amendment to materially impact its results of operations.
Amendment to IAS 1 and IFRS Practice Statement 2 - Disclosure of Accounting Policies: in February 2021 the IASB issued a new amendment to IAS 1 on disclosure of "material" accounting policies rather than "significant" accounting policies. The amendments define what "material accounting policy information" is and explain how to identify it. It also clarifies that immaterial accounting policy information does not need to be disclosed, but if so, it should not obscure the relevant accounting information. To support this change, the IASB also amended the "IFRS Practice Statement 2 Making Materiality Judgments" to provide guidance on how to apply the concept of materiality to accounting policy disclosures. This amendment is effective as of January 1, 2023. The group does not expect the new amendment to materially impact its results of operations.
Amendment to IAS 8 - Accounting Policies, Change in Estimate and Error Rectification: the amendment issued in February 2021 clarifies how entities must distinguish changes in accounting policies from changes in accounting estimates, as changes in accounting estimates are applied prospectively to future transactions and other future events, but changes in accounting policies are generally applied retrospectively to past transactions and other past events, as well as to the current period. This amendment is effective as of January 1, 2023. The group does not expect the new amendment to materially impact its results of operations.
Amendment to IAS 12 - Income Taxes: the amendment issued in May 2021 requires entities to recognize deferred tax on transactions that, on initial recognition, give rise to equal amounts of taxable and deductible temporary differences. This typically applies to lease transactions (right-of-use assets and lease liabilities) and decommissioning and restoration obligations, as an example, and will require the recognition of additional deferred tax assets and liabilities. This amendment is effective as of January 1, 2023.

3.Accounting estimates and judgments
Accounting estimates and judgments are continually evaluated and are based on historical experience and other factors, including expectations of future events that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances.
Based on assumptions, PagSeguro Group makes estimates concerning the future. The resulting accounting estimates will, by definition, seldom equal the related actual results. The main estimates and assumptions are addressed below:
3.1.    Estimated useful life of intangible assets
PagSeguro Group uses an estimated useful life to calculate and record the amortization applied to its intangible assets which may differ from the actual term over which the intangible assets are expected to generate benefits for PagSeguro Group.
The amortization of software usage rights is defined based on the effective period of the license contracted. The amortization of internally developed software is defined based on the period over which the software will generate future economic benefits for PagSeguro Group (note 2.9).
3.2.    Deferred income tax and social contribution
PagSeguro Group recognizes deferred income tax and social contribution based on future taxable profit estimates for the next ten years. These projections are periodically reviewed and approved by management.
3.3.    Provision for contingencies
PagSeguro Group recognizes provisions for civil, tax and labor lawsuits. The assessment of probability of loss includes assessing the available evidence and jurisprudence, the hierarchy of laws and most recent court decisions. Provisions are reviewed and adjusted to consider changes in circumstances such as the applicable limitation period, findings of tax inspections and additional exposures identified based on new issues or court decisions.
3.4.    Measurement of loss allowance for expected credit losses
For accounts receivable from cards issuers, PagSeguro Group uses a provision matrix to calculate ECLs. The provision rates are based on the internal credit rating that consider external information, such as ratings given by major rating agencies and forward-looking factors specific to the debtors and the economic environment.

3.    Accounting estimates and judgments (Continued)
For loans and credit cards receivable with the clients, the provision rates are based on days past due and internal credit rating (i.e. the capacity and historical payments linked to the Client). The provision is initially based on the Group's historical observed default rates. PagSeguro periodically reassesses the premises to adjust the historical credit loss experience with prospective information every year. Therefore, if any external factor, as a representative fall-off in forecast economic indicators and unstable economic scenario indicates an increase in number of defaults, the historical default rates are adjusted. At every reporting date, the historical observed default rates are updated and changes in the future estimates are analyzed and adjusted.
3.5.    Business combinations
Businesses combinations are accounted for using the acquisition method. The consideration transferred in a business combination is measured at fair value, which is calculated as the sum of the acquisition-date fair values of the assets transferred by the Company to, and liabilities assumed by the Company from the former owners of the acquiree, the amount of any non-controlling interest in the acquiree, and the equity interests issued by the Company in exchange for control of the acquiree.
For each acquisition, management's judgment must be exercised to determine the fair value of the assets acquired, the liabilities assumed and any non-controlling interest in the acquiree, applying estimates or judgments in techniques used, especially in forecasting CGU's cash flows, in the computation of weighted average cost of capital ("WACC") and estimation of inflation during the identification of intangible assets with indefinite live, mainly, goodwill and developed software's, as described in Note 11.
