IASB publishes proposals for amendments under its annual improvements project
The International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) has published to its website an exposure draft (ED) of proposed amendments to eleven International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs) under its annual improvements project.
The IASB uses the annual improvements project to make necessary, but non-urgent, amendments to IFRSs that will not be included as part of another major project.
The ED proposes the following amendments:
|IFRS||Subject of amendment|
|Share-based Payment||To clarify the definition of 'vesting conditions'|
| Business Combinations
(Consequential amendments proposed to IFRS 9)
|Accounting for contingent consideration in a business combination|
Aggregation of operating segments
Reconciliation of the total of the reportable segments' assets to the entity's assets
| Fair Value Measurement
||Short-term receivables and payables|
|Presentation of Financial Statements||Current/non-current classification of liabilities|
|IAS 7 Statement of Cash Flows||Interest paid that is capitalised|
|IAS 12 Income Taxes||Recognition of deferred tax assets for unrealised losses|
|IAS 16 Property, Plan and Equipment and IAS 38 Intangible Assets||Revaluation method—proportionate restatement of accumulated depreciation|
|IAS 24 Related Party Disclosures||Key management personnel|
|IAS 36 Impairment of Assets||Harmonisation of disclosures for value in use and fair value less costs of disposal|
The ED proposes that all of the amendments will be effective for annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2014, except for amendments to IFRS 3 and the proposed consequential amendments to IFRS 9, which will be effective for annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2015. Entities are permitted to early adopt all the proposed amendments. Click for IASB Press Release (link to IASB website).
