Roundtables on investment company proposals to be held early in 2012
During February and March 2012, the IASB and FASB are holding a number of public roundtables on their proposals to exempt investment entities from consolidation.
The IASB published Exposure Draft ED/2011/4 Investment Entities on 25 August 2011, proposing to define 'investment entities' as a separate type of entity that would be exempt from the consolidation accounting requirements in IFRS 10 Consolidated Financial Statements. Comments on the Exposure Draft close on 5 January 2012.
Details of the roundtables, including the registration deadline, are set out in the table below:
|Canada||Toronto||17 February 2012||27 January 2012|
|United Kingdom||London||29 February 2012||8 February 2012|
|United States||Norwalk||20 March 2012*||28 February 2012*|
|Malaysia||Kuala Lumpur||27 March 2012||6 March 2012|
* The date of the Norwalk roundtable was changed to 16 March 2012 in mid January 2012. The registration deadline was also brought forward to 24 February 2012.
